Daily Beauty Buzz: Blake Lively's Boho Waves
But, every once in a while, you’ll see a style that looks effortlessly pretty and is actually simple enough to recreate at home. The latest red carpet hairstyle that falls into this category: the boho waves Blake Lively wore to last night’s 2017 TIME 100 Gala in New York.
At the event, Lively swapped her bombshell curls and worked with her natural waves to create the half-up half-down style. If you want to enhance your texture, run a volumizing styling mousse like L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle/Paris Dry It Strong Hold Ruffled Body Mousse ($4; target.com) throughout your damp strands for extra definition and body, and let your hair air dry.
Lively kept the easy vibe going by taking the front sections on both sides of her head and tying them back in a loose twist. A few wispy, face-framing pieces were left out to keep the look soft and romantic.

Natural waves have the tendency to stick together, creating ball of fuzz instead of waves-for-days. Define and add shape to curls with a few sprays of Alterna Haircare's texture finishing spray. This product is infused with bodifying polymers that create an invisible shield around each strand to keep them from clumping together. Courtesy

For straight manes, perfectly un-done waves require, well, a bit of effort.

For extra definition, go over the style with a large-barreled curling iron in random sections once hair is completely dry. Courtesy 1 of 7 Advertisement
