When it comes to out-of-the-box hairstyles, no one does it better than Blake. The actress has donned everything from curly bobs and boho up-dos to 1920s-inspired waves and ultra sleek locks, and somehow always manages to pull it off. Her signature look, though, usually consists of some type of braid. In her most recent look, Blake Lively wore a knotted braid look that will give you major #HairGoals. So if you've been looking to give cool braids a go, look no further than Lively for your inspiration.
The 28-year-old posted a photo to Instagram on Tuesday showing off the most unique braid I have ever seen. Her golden blonde tresses were woven together into a sequence of intricate knots, culminating in the most beautiful design. The messy look flaunted major texture that gave off a totally laid back vibe, which fits in with the actress' typical bohemian style.
The ethereal style appears to be the work of celebrity hairstylist Rod Ortega, who is reportedly using Lively as his latest muse for a nature-inspired hair series. That explains why she is posing on a mountain overlooking crystal blue water and some gorgeous flowers.
