When we think of the ideal beachy waves for hair, Blake Lively is always the first person that comes to mind. At the Gucci show in Milan, however, the actress traded in her signature waves for sleek strands and a deep side part (just in time for fall!).
The deep side-part is the thing that really makes this look work — her hair falls just perfectly over her forehead, for a seriously romantic effect. The trick to getting straight hair to lay so flat with a deep side part is all about the blow dry. Using a round brush, point your dryer away from the part and toward where the hair should fall. Then run the hair over quickly with a flat-iron. Quick word of caution: getting this look right may be difficult with any sort of cowlick.
Blake Lively paired the simple hairstyle with a classic red lip and soft copper eye shadow. Seriously, how does she manage to make any hair and makeup technique look this good?
