For a similar knotted look, watch and memorize this quick tutorial from hairstylist Sara Potempa. Give your hair more volume by working in a texturizing dry shampoo like Bumble And Bumble Pret-A-Powder with your fingers. By keeping the knots looser and adding in the volumizing powder, you’ll get a messier, more undone finish like Blake’s.
Knotted Braid Hairstyle — How To Get Blake Lively’s Look For The Holidays
We’re obsessed with the idea of wearing this for holiday parties because it’s so versatile — wear it with a plum lip and lots of mascara for a less-is-more finish, or pair it with a smudged out smokey eye for an even sexier beauty look. It’s also the perfect way to show off a killer party dress is you’re wearing something with lace or jeweled detailing along the neckline.
What do you think of Blake’s knotted braid, HollywoodLifers? Will you be trying this one out?
