Hey there, Upper East Siders: It’s Blake Lively‘s 28th birthday, so we figured it’s high time to celebrate by paying tribute to her very best hair looks. The actress, homemaking entrepreneur, and “Beyoncé of red carpets” (according to her husband, Ryan Reynolds) has some of the most incredible hair in the biz, hands down. Whether she’s buttery blonde, strawberry blonde, or even bronde, her unrivaled long, thick waves will forever be the object of our mane envy.
With ten years of red carpet experience under her belt—yes, “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” was ten years ago—we’ve seen Blake through some truly incredible hairstyles, each one more jaw-dropping than the last. Need a bit of a refresher? We’ve got you covered. It was our pleasure.
Blake’s hair became increasingly glamorous as the years wore on, but this August 2007 throwback from the “Rocket Science” premiere goes to show that there wasn’t a time where the young actress didn’t have an incredible mane.
Blake has perfectly mastered—or rather, simply acquired by way of luck—the kind of sexy, tousled bedhead we so wish we woke up with.
A slightly sleeker look proves that an elegant blowout can be anything but boring—the off-center part and second-day vibes make it cool.
These bouncy curls exude glamorous old Hollywood without going full-on retro, which is no small feat.
Blake’s brief flirtation with a strawberry blonde tint left us with gorgeous, voluminous lion’s mane of a look.
Shiny, full of body, and classically lovely—even Blake’s more low-key looks are breathtaking.
We absolutely love this beige-y blonde color on Blake: it really complements her complexion and makes her eyes look crazy blue.
Another soft, simple look, this time for a Cannes red carpet.
We’d heard rumors of long, luscious hair as a happy byproduct of pregnancy, but Blake’s incredible waves really knock the cliche out of the park.
The perfect buttery, multidimensional medium blonde and equally unbeatable curls—this is classic Blake at her best.
