L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Blake Lively turns 27 today and we would like to wish her a very happy birthday! To celebrate, we've put together a little gallery of some of Blake's very best hairstyles to date. With a mane that's as famous as she is, Blake is a great source of hairspiration. Whether you're looking for something new to do with your hair or need the motivation to keep growing it, this lady has got you covered.

The Hollywood look

At this year's Met Gala in New York City, Blake looked as if she had stepped out of the silver screen and onto the red carpet. Undeniably siren-like, her side-swept curls were classically glamorous, sexy and hard to forget.

Pretty pony

For her first appearance at the Cannes Film Festival back in May, Blake wore her hair in a high braided ponytail. The lengths were loosely woven into a three-strand braid but the subtly windswept finish helped to soften the overall look. If you want something that is striking yet girlish, this could be the perfect style for you.

Styling tip - Spray your pony with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and tease before you braid it. This will add volume and give you a mussed, matte texture.

Tousled waves

The hairstyle of the moment is a Blake Lively staple and it has been since before it was cool. Or maybe she made it cool. Who knows.

Styling tip - Spray dry or damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray then blow-dry in large twisted chunks to recreate the look.


Another unusual approach to the classic pony, Blake's bubbles made quite an impact at the Met Gala back in 2013! It has a playful feel to it without coming off as ridiculous or childish. But we're not surprised. This woman would look fantabulous with any hairstyle imaginable.

Sleek waves

This style is pretty much a toned down version of those über glamorous Hollywood waves. With a little less volume and more wave-like curls, this style may be more accessible for us non-celebs to wear on those days when we just want to feel fancy!


Last but by no means least is her fishtail side braid. Blake's hair looked just as good in this low-key style as it does in something more polished, giving us more than enough reason to take a similar approach to our own locks...

Which is your favorite style from the gorgeous birthday girl?
