In her recent NY Times article, Sarah Maslin Nir says Blake Lively’s long tousled hair is the new “Rachel.” While we didn’t realize it was that ubiquitous, we’re definitely huge fans of Blake’s hair.
Celebrity hair stylist and Nexxus Creative Director, Kevin Mancuso, has worked with Blake Lively and gave us his recommendations on how to recreate her style.
“Women should take inspiration from this Bohemian style and incorporate its carefree ‘essence’ into their own style,” said Mancuso.
Step One: Apply a curl enhancing mousse, like Nexxus Gorgeous Curls Curl Enhancing Styling Foam, evenly throughout damp hair.
Step Two: Turn head upside down and blow dry, using fingers to scrunch hair. Once dry, flip head back up and create slightly off-center part.
Step Three: Use a medium size curling iron to create well-defined curls randomly throughout the bottom half of locks only.
Step Four: Finish the look by applying a light coating of a texturizing lotion, such as Nexxus VersaStyler Artistic Designing Lotion, with fingers, separating and loosening the curls as you go.
