Currently heating up screens and red carpets for her role in Oliver Stone’s sexy thriller Savages, Blake Lively–seen here posing for LA Times Magazine–can always be counted on for a red hot style statement. But the real key to this Gossip Girl beauty’s rising star is her long, blonde, Jerry Hall-esque mane, often worn in tumbling, California girl waves.
What’s the secret to her look? Turns out it’s Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. The Fashion Week staple, popular with celebs and stylists alike since its launch in 2001, gives that perfect day-at-the-beach look. Infused with salt, the formula also includes seaweed and kelp extracts for added moisture.
To get Blake Lively’s look, Gossip Girl‘s on-set hairstylist Jennifer Johnson recommends sprtizing Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray onto wet hair and blow-drying with a diffuser on a light setting. Finish by using a two-inch curling iron to create waves throughout the hair for added curl. You can also fingercomb Surf Spray through clean, dry hair for added texture and definition, or let wet hair airdry for a naturally wavy look. Spritz on roots for extra volume and hold.
And perfect for those summer weekend getaways: Surf Spray is now available in convenient travel size (1.7oz bottle $19.50)! Visit Bumble and Bumble for details.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, 4oz bottle $24; available at Sephora.
