How It's Done: Blake Lively's Effortless Red Carpet Waves

Apr/15/2016 at 09:00 AM ET

Now that you’ve seen Blake Lively’s braid tutorial, it’s time to move onto something a little more advanced. It’s a hairstyle perfect for your next wedding or formal event. It’s also perfect if you just want to feel Blake Lively-adjacent (like the editor in the video above, who you can see geeks out over the actress).

The man behind some of Blake’s most iconic red carpet looks, hairstylist Rod Ortega, stopped by the PeopleStyle offices to show how to create those effortless waves Blake wore to the amfAR gala in N.Y.C. in February.

The look may seem complicated, but the braid and waves combo is actually easy to achieve as long as you have these three things — a wand (Ortega used T3’s latest curler), a light texture spray like L’Oréal Paris Air-Blown Texture Mist and a mascara spooly to backcomb the braid for a more textured, undone look. Easy, right? Get the rundown above.
