How to Get Blake Lively's Hair


Mane Event:
Blake Lively’s go-to hair gal is Jennifer Johnson, the lead stylist on Gossip Girl. Here, Johnson reveals how she creates Lively’s sexy waves each day on set.

Step 1: Cleanup Crew
Shampoo with Kérastase Bain Satin 2. “I use the Kérastase mask on Blake twice a week. Her hair gets styled every day for the show, so it goes through a lot.”

Step 2: Root Cause
While hair is still wet, spritz roots with David Babaii Bohemian Beach Spray. “This beach spray isn’t sticky and gives Blake a lot of lift at her roots. Then I lift her hair up with a Mason Pearson brush and blow dry the roots to create volume.”

Step 3: Make Waves
“After the hair is dry, I’ll take random, one or two inch-wide sections of Blake’s hair and wrap them around a curling iron. I hold the iron vertically and wrap the hair around it, leaving about half an inch out. On the sides of the head, I wrap the hair away from the face. In the back, I wrap it in different directions so the hair doesn’t become one big curl.”

Step 4: End Game
Rub a small amount of Kérastase Lait Nutri-Sculpt for Blow Dry Protection between palms and rake fingers through hair ends, starting from underneath and avoiding the root area. “Blake has a big old head of hair and I just use a pea size. If your ends are a little dry, this styling cream seals them and makes them look healthy.”

Step 5: Bun Time
Using fingers instead of a brush or comb, pull hair back into a loose bun and secure with a large hairpin (elastics will create a dent). “Blake sits with the bun while she’s getting her makeup done. These 30 minutes help the hair set and loosens the curling iron curls.”

Step 6: Extra Volume
“After I take her hair out of the bun, I’ll tease Blake’s roots with the Mason Pearson. I lift the hair up and brush down once to add lift.”
