Blake Lively looked flawless at the Spike TV's "Scream 2010 Awards" last month. To complete her long gray Lanvin ensemble, simple and sleek with a slightly tousled look for her hair. Emilie Luciano, ECRU New York Styling Director, provides simple how-to steps and the products needed to create Lively's chic hair style.
First, start by running ECRU Silk Nectar Serum throughout hair from roots to ends. Next, take a boar bristle paddle brush and brush hair until it’s smooth and ready to be put into a ponytail. ($32.50)
Then, use a rubber band to start placing hair in the motion of a ponytail, but do not pull the hair all the way through. Instead, keep hair looking like a loop. Dirty the loop with some ECRU Sunlight Styling Spray. Then, take hairpins or bobby pins and pull and tuck random strands of the loop in different directions, working into the shape of a round bun. Pinning the hair here and there with each strand creates that messy bun look. ($22.95)
Once the shape is formed, finish the look with ECRU Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX to really hold the style in place. ($22.95)
