Blake Lively working the vintage hairstyle trend

Blake Lively's retro hairstyles: which look suits her more?

If her last few red carpet appearances are anything to go by, L'Oréal Paris ambassador Blake Lively has been traveling back in time for style inspiration. Her first appearance on the Croisette at Cannes, for example, featured a 1950s-inspired high ponytail and, even more recently, she's jumped forward a decade and has been working some very 1960s looks.

Retro Glamour

Take Blake's hair at the CFDA Fashion Awards on June 2 (left). She lightly curled her hair, brushed it away from her face, and then used a silk white ribbon to secure it in place, giving the impression of a headband that was so à la mode in the Sixties. By leaving a slight rise at the front, Blake softens the overall effect.

What's great about this style?

Not only does the ribbon keep your hair out of your face but, by pulling your hair back, you draw attention to your forehead, eyes and ears.

Classic Waves

At yesterday's Chime for Change one-year anniversary event, Blake chose a hairstyle that was closer to her signature sideswept beachy waves, but still had a strong retro element to it. With her hair parted smoothly to one side, she curled the hair towards the ends, leaving the roots straight.

What's great about this style?

A side swept part allows you the best of both worlds: on one side you can show off a standout earring, and on the other side your hair sweeps romantically over your eye.

Which retro style do you prefer? The Swinging Sixities, or a more subtle classic style? Vote above!
