Get the look: Blake Lively
The Cannes Film Festival is still in full flow but all eyes have been on one actress this year – Blake Lively.
From a sleek and sophisticated ponytail to a more relaxed beach boho style, the Hollywood star has pulled out all the stops with her hair and beauty choices.
To get her top five looks, we’ve enlisted the help of leading online hair and beauty retailer Hairtrade.com – who identify the styling products you will need in your bathroom.
1.) Beach boho waves
Label.m Sea Salt Spray, £10.75 for 200ml
One of Blake’s favourite looks is the loose beach boho waves – and the easiest way to create this is using a texturising salt spray. Just simply spray onto dry or wet hair and then blow dry to create an effortless crinkled effect.
2.) Slicked back ponytail
Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Firm Finishing Spray, £12.20 for 300ml
This spray proves all-day hold and will keep all loose hairs gripped, making it perfect for a slicked back ponytail style.
3.) Loose messy bun
Moroccanoil Volumising Mousse, £18.85 for 250ml
Arguably Blake’s most standout look from Cannes was the ‘Cinderella’ gown – complete with a loose curly bun and an alice band. Apply this styling mousse to towel-dried hair before drying to add volume and texture, which will help give it lift when pinning into a bun.
4.) Blonde and beautiful
Sexy Hair Sulfate Free Bombshell Blonde Shampoo, £3.50 for 60ml
Why not go lighter for the summer season and copy Blake’s colour with a mixture of honey and caramel tones. This shampoo will keep highlighted hair looking fresh and prevents breakage.
5.) Long and loose tendrils
Fab Remy Lace Weft Clip-in Hair Extensions in Shade 60 Platinum Blonde, from £25
An easy way to instantly gain longer locks is with matching hair extensions and these clip-ins can be worn whenever you want. These extensions are attached to a lace weft which prevents shredding and gives a thicker look.
