Why we all want to be Blake!

Ok, forget the uber cool NY lifestyle and wardrobe to die for, the number reason we're all obsessed with the gorgeous Blake Lively is her incredible hair. Dubbed 'the new Rachel' by a top US magazine it now seems that Blake is the biggest hair-spiration with thousands of chic Manhattanites rushing to the salon for her 'do. Never one to miss a trick, here at Graziadaily we've been banging on about Blake's hair for a while so imagine our excitement when some of our favourite London hair insiders revealed she's now one of the most requested styles of the moment. Blonde, glossy and yes - super long and healthy- grrr. (Not that we're jealous or anything!)

Getting Blake's style is pretty easy - all down a bouncy blow-dry and setting hair in Velcro rollers, before smoothing through. The length and thickness - not quite so easy! Just like most of our favourite long haired lovelies we reckon Blake relies on good old natural hair extensions to bump up the volume and add serious thickness and shine. Coming in at an average of £3000 a pop, not to mention regular pricey maintenance sessions, it's not exactly do-able for the likes of us, however if you do fancy getting the feel without spending the cash we can vouch for the brilliant Hersheson Hair Clips Ins (0208 743 0868) by top London salon Daniel Hersheson. Clip in for extra body and length without the credit card busting price tag!
