8 Blake Lively Iconic Hair Moments That Will Make Your Jaw Drop
You don’t need to be a long-time Gossip Girl fan to recognize that Blake Lively has the BEST hair in Hollywood. With those thick California waves and that gorgeous glossy blonde, the A Simple Favor actress can pull off pretty much any hairstyle. In short, her tresses are a national treasure. So we’re celebrating this style icon’s birthday with a look back at her best mane moments, from fashion week front rows to movie premiers and red carpets.
1. Boho Braid
It’s not a Blake Livey birthday post if we don’t throw it back to a peak Gossip Girl era ‘do. Blake’s braid game is legendary, and this undone fishtail she rocked at the 2011 Green Lantern premier is absolute perfection.
2. 1940s Glamor
Blake’s look for the 2014 Met Gala takes a cue from classic Hollywood beauties like Veronica Lake and Ava Garner. With her silky, retro waves, Blake totally nailed the Charles James: Beyond Fashion theme.
3. Textured Pony
Blake is the queen of texture. This wispy ponytail from the Cafe Society premier at Cannes in 2016 is just the right amount of windswept. These tousled tresses are definitely ponytail goals.
4. Classic Waves
This is the hairstyle Blake is perhaps best known for. Her honey blonde locks are expertly parted to the side, letting her signature California waves shine.
5. The Ultimate Accessory
This is, without a doubt, the Met Gala look to end all Met Gala looks. Blake completely outdid herself with this golden halo hairpiece. The perfect embodiment of the 2018 theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
6. Disco Waves
The bigger, the better. While we’re certainly fans of Blake’s signature beach-ready tresses, we love these 70s-inspired curls she rocked last December at the Versace Fall 2019 show.
7. Chic Chignon
It’s rare to see Blake sans her usual waves, but when she opts for an updo she really delivers. This sleek chignon from the Cannes red carpet in 2014 is beyond sophisticated.
8. Intricate Plait
We’re in LOVE with this look from Blake’s 2018 A Simple Favor premier at MoMA. Slicked back into an intricate plait-within-a-plait, this style is both eye-catching and polished.
