We [hearts] BLAKE’s Hair!
CELEB HAIR SPECIAL
All you need to know about Blake Lively’s golden waves and Olivia Munn’s perfect bun, plus products that changed our lives this season—and more!
SERGE NORMANT SAYS: “I love that Blake never wants to look too done. For her signature care-free waves, I spray vol-umizer from the roots to mid-length and blow dry with a round brush. Then I use a 1-in. iron randomly throughout the hair to create natural-looking bend.”
RONA O’CONNOR SAYS: “Blake has a great eye for color, and we work together to accent her face shape and cut with highlights. She’s really good about taking care of her hair with conditioners. I recommend a daily leave-in and a mask every third shampoo.”

The Hair Product That Changed My Life This Summer

Secret de Nuit, $38; nordstrom .com
Until I discovered this Phyto treatment, the only thing harder than commuting all the way out to Montauk was keeping my natural curls moisturized. With nightly use of this cream, my hair is softer and more manageable.

PAMELA EDWARDS CHRISTIANI
Thank you, Shu Uemura, for this hydrating, frizz-fighting and UV-protecting savior! It transforms my overprocessed hair (highlights, keratin treatments). I use it daily on wet or dry hair, and it’s never heavy or greasy.

Between my addiction to highlights (it takes a lot of bleach to look natural), constant blow-drying and daily curling habit, I don’t just abuse my hair, I torture it. Biolage ExquisiteOil magically keeps it strong and happens to smell like heaven.

After a day at the beach, there’s not a single beachy wave on my head (sigh). But now I can fake it with Powder Bluff, which gives my stick-straight strands plenty of texture and the ability to hold a curl. Hallelujah!
