There's one thing girls may envy Blake Lively for and it's not her marriage to Ryan Reynolds.

Her long blonde hair is part of her signature style and the good news is that getting the look yourself doesn't require a celebrity stylist.


"I naturally have wavy hair so I’ll dry it to where it’s still a little bit wet, but put it in a ballerina bun,”  the 25-year-old told Refinery29. “Then I take it out and it has a really nice, natural deep wave. It’s a good trick!”

Lively, who cites screen sirens Katharine Hepburn and Grace Kelly as her style inspirations, prefers the relaxed, romantic look of soft, loose curls.

“I feel it looks lived-in, almost that it has a story...” Lively told the beauty site. “I always, even in my daily life, go for sort of effortless things…if you let it dry in that bun or you blow it out after you put it in a bun, and you make sure it’s really tight, then you’ll come out with really pretty waves.”

Up or down, styled or loose, we think Lively's locks pretty much always look good.  See what we mean below:
