Blake Lively's Big, Messy Bouffant + Ponytail
This is one bold style and Blake Lively can definitely pull it off. Where and when to wear such a 'do? Well, whenever or wherever you need a healthy dose fabulousness! To recreate Blake's look, begin by sectioning out a one-inch band of hair along the front hairline. Next, start backcombing--a lot! The process might go more quickly if you try using a natural bristle brush instead of comb. When you've created as much texture and volume as possible, smooth the top layer and pull hair back into a low, loose ponytail. You might need to 'shape' the bouffant by using your hand to gently push it into place. When it looks exactly how you'd like, blast it with lots of hairspray. The loose strands should be divided into one-inch pieces and twisted. Draw the twists back, one at a time, wrap them around the base of the ponytail and pin into place. Remember, don't try to be perfect. A significant amount of messiness is what makes this look so cool.
