Blake Lively long dirty blonde hair in high ponytail on the red carpet

Blake Lively just debuted the perfect short ‘do – but is it real or faux? We investigate

Our favourite Upper East Sider has been spotted with a brand new 'do and we can't quite believe it!  

Yes, this is the same Blake Lively whose gorgeous long locks have been her trademark style ever since her Gossip Girl days. And yes, the same Blake Lively who always dominates the red carpet in an array of fantastic hairstyles. So it’s safe to say that her flowing blonde hair has been the source of many a girl’s dreams  Pinterest or reality.

So when the actress hit the red carpet with a brand new look, we could hardly believe our eyes! But has she really gone for the chop? Naturally, we had to do a little investigating of our own on this matter, as looks can be deceiving…

Blake Lively’s new ‘do is her shortest look yet

Attending the premiere of her new movie All I See Is You, Blake Lively debuted a brand new long bob hairstyle and completely dominated the red carpet, naturally!

Now you may have already spotted this, but notice how we called it a ‘hairstyle’ and not a ‘haircut’, as we have a little feeling that this is a case of some cleverly placed hairpins and that Blake hasn’t really gone for the chop (breathes a collective sigh of relief).

Editor’s tip: To add Blake’s voluminous, full-bodied finish to your style, we suggest using the VO5 Extra Body Mousse, as the weightless formula is perfect for creating big, bodylicious hair.

Although clearly this shorter style looks fantastic on Blake (come on, she could wear the worst hairstyle imaginable and it would still look fab), we fully support her should she make the decision to go for the style permanently.

Either way, the actress has totally nailed the long bob trend and whether it’s a real or faux bob, will once again be the poster girl for red carpet looks.
