We don’t know about you but we LOVE Blake Lively’s effortlessly chic messy sidebraid hairstyle. We are so enamored with the look, in fact, that we sought out our resident Beauty Place stylist and asked her “How do we get the look?!” Here, her advice on how to achieve the of-the-moment hairstyle yourself.
1. You want to build up texture by prepping hair with a texturizing spray, such as CHI Infra Dual Texture Hairspray.
2. Then you want to create extra body and bounce by drying your hair with a diffuser. We like the CHI Rocket Professional Hairdryer.
3. Use your fingers to rake your hair to one side and create two ponytails by fastening both the top and the bottom with elastic bands.
4. Pull out the top section and create a fishtail braid.
5. Next, add a festive clip to the base of the ponytail. (Lively wore a vintage Chanel brooch here.)
And voila! You are rocking one of the best hairstyles of the season.
