If there’s one person who likes to keep the press on their toes, it’s Blake Lively. Whether she's bagged a new hot man, a gorgeous new outfit or copper-coloured bouffant, the Gossip Girler often takes us by surprise. And her latest hair do, which she sported while out and about in New York, has once again caught us unawares. What can we call this style? ‘Curl Whirl’, perhaps? Yup, Blake's gone seriously curly-wurly with a strawberry blonde mane that's brilliant Eighties-esque.
We love that Miss Lively has let her, er, hair down a bit and moved away from that uber-groomed Serena van der Woodsen look she's become famous for. This is a much more fun and frivolous barnet, dontcha think? The colour suits her perfectly - in fact, we can’t think of another celeb that pulls of that tricky shade of blonde better (okay, so Ri-Ri might in at a very close second) and the style is funner and freer than ever before. If this is what breaking up with a Hollywood hunk will do to your beauty look, sign us up! One thing's for sure, we’ll be reaching for our crimping irons and curling tongs as soon as schools out, kids, so we too can work a retro fro for the weekend. Perfect timing for the Snoop Dogg concert we're heading off to tonight, right?
