The Beauty Department: Get Blake Lively’s Beachy Curls
The girl has it all: a killer bod, a closet full of Chanel, and what’s that husband of hers named again? Oh, right, Ryan Reynolds. And her hair?! Just. Stop. It. Luckily, we’re here to tell you how to get her perfect beachy curls – but you’re on your own with the whole high-status-man-candy thing.
To start, blowdry hair straight, making sure to lift at the roots for volume. Using a curling wand (or curling iron with the clip removed), curl hair in 2-inch vertical sections, keeping curling wand vertical the whole time and wrapping hair around. Once hair is curled, go about your life with your gorgeous new Shirley Temple ‘do for a few minutes and allow the curls to cool. When curls are cool to the touch, fluff hair at the crown with both hands, and bending from side to side, and shake curls out lightly. To finish, gently tease the roots to add volume, and instead of using hairspray, which can give curls a crunchy look, add a bit of dry shampoo (non-aerosol Klorane is our favorite) to roots to hold volume. Voila! You’re Blake Lively’s hair double!
