You have to see Blake Lively’s heart-shaped updo
It’s no secret that we have a major hair crush on Blake’s long blonde tresses, and although her Serena Van Der Woodsen days are far behind her, she’s still remained at the top of her mane game. Over the years, she’s rocked messy side braids, Victoria’s Secret-inspired waves and more (we could go on forever!). So, when she shared this show-stopping updo on Instagram, alongside the caption: “Happy Valentines Day ❤?”, we fell head over heels all over again.
In the picture above, Blake’s blonde wavy locks have been pulled back into a half-up, half-down style. Two sections of her hair have been twisted into a giant heart shape, then pinned in place. To complete the romantic look, she’s also paired her ‘do with a love heart dress to match. Credit: @blakelively
If you’re a bride-to-be, or are just looking to impress on your next date, we reckon you should keep Blake’s cute love-themed hairstyle on your radar. Want to know how to get this romantic look? Follow these simple steps below:
2. To create your heart, take an ample section of hair from one side of your head, and twist it. Then, fashion your twist into the shape of half a love heart, and pin it place with some bobby pins. Repeat the process on another section of hair from the opposite side of your head, and create the other half of the heart.
3. To finish, give your ‘do a once over with TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray to help keep it in place. See? You did it! Cupid would definitely be proud of you.
