Hairstyle of the week: Blake Lively

By Amy Lawrenson


Hair accessories can be tricky to get right, but Blake Lively shows exactly how it should be done.


The accessory is by Lorraine Schwartz, the woman behind Kim Kardashian's $2million 20.5 carat diamond engagement ring, and it works because the yellow-hue of the gems perfectly compliments Blake's golden hair colour and the floral detail on her Chanel Couture dress. Plus it's off-centre placement makes it less try-hard than if it had been positioned at the front.


Her hair has been loosely tonged and styled half-up, pinned in place with the brooch. The rest of her hair has been pulled into a dishevelled fishtail plait, with tendrils deliberately left loose.

If you want to try this hairstyle, use a little OSIS Dust It Mattifying Powder, £9.56 (, or dry shampoo on the mid-lengths and ends that you are pulling into the fishtail to give it that dry texture. Also, be sure to muss up the plait so it doesn't look too perfect - this hairstyle works because it looks undone and effortless, so keep that in mind.
