L'Oréal Paris ambassador Blake Lively attended the Michael Kors Fall/Winter 2016-17 presentation, as part of New York Fashion Week, on February 17. The beautiful blonde appeared in a fresh, muted ensemble centered around a gorgeous figure-hugging nude lace dress with hand-embroided silver embellishments with a perfectly coordinated coat and beige heels. She completed the elegant look with fresh, bright makeup and her signature messy waves styled into an on-trend half-up style!
If you have long hair and are on the hunt for a look that's sophisticated and sexy, follow our simple tutorial to get the look...
For maximum texture, try this look on a day when your hair isn't freshly washed (the natural oils give your hair extra grip). Start by creating a side part with your fingers. Then, spray a root lifter spray on the scalp and gently massage it into your roots for a couple of minutes. Follow up by spraying your hair with a heat protection spray.
Use a medium barrel curling iron to create loose waves throughout your locks, working in small sections from one side to the other. Once all of the hair is curled, mist your look with a keratin-enriched hairspray before using your fingers to loosen up the look.
Gently backcomb the roots of your hair around the top and crown to give the hair more volume. Next, sweep the hair from the sides toward the back, making sure to leave some face-framing curls loose. Secure the hair at the back with bobby pins and finish with a veil of hairspray.
