Apparently, according to The New York Times and hairstylists across Manhattan, Blake Lively’s hair is the new “Rachel;” countless women have been requesting this Gossip Girl ‘do from their respective stylists. Now, we’re definitely jealous of Lively’s signature tresses, but take it from someone who actually got “the Rachel” oh so many years ago, not everyone is meant to have TV-star hair. I had to learn the hard way that Aniston’s stylish look was not meant for those of us blessed with curls. My suggestion is to stay away from the scissors and be a go-getter; here’s how to do the Serena ‘do yourself.
First things first: to get Blake’s powerful hair you’ll need a powerful hair dryer. Used by many a professional stylist, this Solano blow dryer got me through those tough post-Rachel years.
You’ll also need a top of the line round brush to create those luscious Lively curls – try Metropolis’ thermal hair brush, it actually features an antibacterial purification system (now that’s hi-tech) and removes odors from you coif.
Unfortunately, a good blow out does not a flawless hair-do make. Use Korres’ Bamboo Styling Cream for long-lasting waves and lots of volume, and try Brilliant Glossing Cream from Fekkai for some extra gorgeous shine.
