Ever since Blake Lively came into our lives, we’ve been envious of her seemingly perfect hair. While the 32-year-old actress has made relatively few changes over the years, they haven’t gone unnoticed (and they weren’t all winners).
Keep reading for all the details on Blake Lively’s hair evolution.
2005: The Beach Babe
Lively attended the Teen Choice Awards in 2005 and wore a beachy hairstyle, consisting of side bangs and loose waves. (Try using a Hair Finishing Stick to tame flyaways.)
2007: The (soon-to-be) Upper East Sider
In 2007, Lively landed the role of Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl and introduced her signature style, which featured long blonde locks with darker roots. She curled her hair with a large iron to achieve an undone look.
2009: The Inevitable Chop
When she attended the NYC premiere of Sherlock Holmes, she sported a much shorter hairstyle that fell just below her shoulders. She styled her locks in tight curls, creating a retro vibe.
2011: The sleek style
In 2011, Lively stepped out wearing a super-sleek look. Not only was her hair slightly blonder than usual, but she also straightened it for the first time, like, ever.
2013: The Real-Life Serena
As of 2013, Lively had practically adopted van der Woodsen’s signature hairstyle, which featured long layers, sun-kissed highlights and soft curls.
2015: The Signature Style
At the Age of Adaline premiere, Lively sported her usual style—but this time, she opted for a slightly smaller curling iron, creating a tighter look. It’s not drastic, but hey, it’s something.
2017: Yet Another version
Lively attended the People’s Choice Awards rocking an effortless style. While she kept the color the same, the actress opted for a natural texture.
2019: Baby curls
Lively debuted her growing baby bump at the Pokémon Detective Pikachu premiere. She styled her hair in tightly coiled ringlets, giving us major Taylor Swift vibes circa “Teardrops on My Guitar.”
