First time mom-to-be and generally glamorous lady Blake Lively is making maternity hair a thing, as we thought she would. Since announcing her pregnancy the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson has been spotted at a couple of red carpet events, notably at the 2014 Angel Ball alongside her husband and fellow brand ambassador Ryan Reynolds.

Unsurprisingly, Blake's hair looked effortlessly beautiful and of course we absolutely want to steal it. If you would like to join us by channeling your inner Blake, too, just follow the simple tutorial below.

Get the look

Step one
Starting with damp hair, apply a wave enhancing spray evenly throughout, then rough dry.

Step two
While the hair is still slightly damp, twist a few sections at random and blow-dry the twists. This will create a few natural looking waves throughout. Once dried, part your hair on your favorite side with a wide-tooth comb - this will give you some level of accuracy without compromising the texture you just created.

Step three
Work a small amount of matte putty through the lengths to create a subtly piecey texture and to enhance the movement created from the blowout.

Step four
Sweep your hair over the shoulder on the opposite side to the one you parted it on. Loosely pin it back into a messy half-up style, making sure a few small pieces fall out at the front to frame your face.

Step five
Complete your new hairstyle with a generous mist of finishing spray to give it long-lasting hold and some added shine.
