If we asked you to name which celebrity has the best hair, we reckon Blake Lively would nearly always come out on top. Ever since the star got her break as Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, we've been obsessed with her blonde mane. True, she played a socialite in the TV show, which required her to have perfect- looking tresses, but in real life, the A-lister's hairstyles have also become some of the most covetable.
At the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards in 2009, Lively went for a messy plait in a ponytail.
Her first time experimenting with red, Lively surprised everyone by changing her trademark blonde locks and going strawberry at the Time 100 Gala in 2011.
A sleek ponytail was all Lively needed for this understated, glamorous look at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
This is probably one of our favorite-ever looks on the actress. The messy side plait complemented her white dress that she wore to the premiere of Green Lantern, again in 2011 (this was apparently a hallmark hair year for the actress).
Classic Hollywood curls were all the star needed to complete her look for the Age of Adaline premiere in 2015.
Not content with being the queen of incredible updos, Lively also knows how to wear her hair down in messy curls for red carpet events. Case in point: her look at the Mr. Turner premiere at Cannes in 2014.
Every once in a while, Lively will surprise us with a new hairstyle such as this low bun she wore to the Captives premiere at the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival in 2014.
This '60s Barbarella-esque look is everything. To re-create this style, all you need is to back-comb your crown to give the roots lift, spray some hair spray, and pop on a hairband.
The trick with this look is pulling the hair back and allowing tendrils to drop to frame the face.
This ponytail is classic Lively, but the little kink in the back gives it a high-glamour twist.
The curly high ponytail from the back. To re-create this look, we suggest you create loose curls at the bottom of freshly blow-dried hair before tying it up.
We know that the A-lister loves a high pony, but this version includes a tiny detail that we loveâ€”hair wrapped around the base of the ponytail. Lively wore this to the premiere of The Shallows.
This '80s hairstyle is making a comeback, and Lively is one of the first celebs to really tap into this trend.
Perhaps one of the most popular hairstyles of all is this fishtail plait, which Lively wore to the premiere of her film Savages in 2012. Want to create your own version? Here's how to finally master the fishtail braid.
