Blake Lively hair envy knows no bounds. We never get tired of her beach waves or pinning her braided red carpet looks, and this time a retro spin. As if Blake Lively weren’t blessed enough, Blake plays a woman frozen at the age of 29 for decades in her latest movie. In The Age of Adaline, she stars as a beautiful young woman who becomes extremely lucky to never age beyond 29. Not only does Adaline get to avoid all the worst parts of aging, but she is wearing a gorgeous hairstyle for, well, forever. After blowing us away with an unbelievable hairstyle look throughout The Age of Adaline, it hit us: we will show you how to easily recreate the hairstyle. Read on for all the glorious details on how to copy Lively’s ageless looks.
Step 1: First, brush your hair to remove any knots or tangles. You can apply some lave-in conditioner if your hair is dry and weak. Begin by parting your hair down the middle to create two sections.
Step 2: Separate a piece from section one and cross it over to join section two. Then take a piece from section two and cross over to join section one.
Step 3: Repeat alternating crossed pieces. Take a look at the images in this tutorial to ensure you are following the steps correctly.
Step 4: Once you’ve reached the end, tie off the braid. For best results, use a clear rubber band as it’s easier to hide.
Step 5: To create a fuller look, use your fingers to gently pull apart the braid. Now, add hairspray all over. There’s seriously nothing worse than spending all this time braiding your hair only to have it fall out hours later. Now you have it – the gorgeous hairstyle from The Age of Adaline!
