How To: Blake Lively Sexy Bedhead Using Velcro Rollers

Do y'all remember last week's post when I talked about fall hair trends? I know, it was a week ago, so click here to refresh your memory. I asked y'all to choose the look you'd like to see a tutorial on, and this was the look with the most votes! Today I'm showing you how to get Blake Lively's sexy bed head using velcro rollers

1, 2, 3

Can we just talk about how gorgeous her hair is? She's one of my top hair-spiration sources. But you wouldn't believe how easy this hairstyle is to achieve. Instead of using a curling iron, I thought I would mix it up and use velcro rollers. These provide amazing volume and a slight curl--perfect for that "I woke up like this" bedhead.






You'll need--
  • velcro rollers
  • hair clips
  • comb
  • hair product of choice
  • heat protectant
  • hair spray
  • texturizing product
  • brush (if needed)
How To:
-I'm starting with washed hair. While damp, I applied my hair product of choice--I usually apply something to help with frizz. A curling mousse or volumizing product might be more your style.
-Once hair is about 70-80% naturally dry, I'll roll my hair. I used really large ones for volume and used smaller ones on the sides for curl. Velcro rollers can be purchased online, at beauty supply stores, drugstores, and box stores (Target, etc).



-I rolled hair under and secured the roller with a clip. Feel free to experiment on the rolling direction to give you the results you want. I started at my roots first and went down the back and then rolled the sides, as pictured below:

-I did this super fast, because I'm always in a hurry. Please enjoy my messy, crazy rollers-in-hair face. Oh, and note Charlie's toys piled over there on your right.



-Now you have a few options. You can blast it with the hair dryer until your hair is dry. But I chose to bust out my dryer cap. Just stuff your hair under there, attach it to your hair dryer, and heat things up. This takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes. I got mine at Sally Beauty Supply--they have a couple of options, and you can use the dryer cap for conditioning treatments in addition to the intended dryer function.

-Once hair has dried, let it completely cool down before taking it out of the rollers. Since I'm going for a messy texture, I don't use a brush, just my fingers to comb through it.

-To finish this hair, it's going to need some texture. Some options (choose one): beachy waves spray (gives it a bit of a crunchy feel), texturizing paste (for that piecey look), dry shampoo (blast in roots for more volume and then use what is left on your hands to go through your hair, like pictured above), or texturizing powder.

-I tapped the powder in my palm, rubbed my palms together and then dispensed the product through my roots and hair, as pictured above. Finish with hair spray and you're set!

-Tips: To extend the hair style, I sleep on a satin pillowcase--something I've mentioned many times before on the blog. I also use dry shampoo to help with decreased volume.

-Remember this hairstyle is about giving you volume. You're not going for super curly hair here, so my friends with fine hair, please try this!

  3. Well you and Blake are gorgeous!! I have much shorter hair but I think I could do something similar with smaller rollers. By the way, I picked up the Sonya Kushak blush in Melon and love it!! Thanks!! I thin I can use that shade all year! Blessings! Susan

  7. Looks great! I have always had problems with velcro rollers. I think since my hair is so fine they won't hold.

  8. Sounds like I need to get me some velcro rollers! Although my hair hates to hold a curl so I don't know if they'd work for me or not!
