  • Hi, and welcome back to Hair With Hollie. I am Hollie and today we are going to be doing

  • a Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl look. We are going to start off with two looks. First

  • of all, a nice dry and style kind of nice relaxed and curly. And then we are going to

  • pop this back into quite a new look and style.

  • So we'll start with a dry and style. So I'm just going to run the curling iron through

  • the hair to get a nice gentle bit of movement in.

  • So start by parting your hair in the center. The grab some mousse and comb it through the

  • length of the hair to give it a bit of grip before we start to curl.

  • So start curling at the front of the hair always working away from the face to get a

  • nice big bouncy curl. So then you just repeat this all over the hair until all the hair

  • has been curled.

  • So now that we have all the hair curled,what I am going to do is just brush through it

  • lightly and the break up the curls gently using your fingers.

  • So if you would like to add a bit of volume to this look you backcomb sections of the

  • hair at the top of the crown. So take about a three inch wide section and backcomb using

  • a backcomb brush to add a bit of volume.

  • So to complete the Blair Waldorf look we are going to add in a bit of hair jewelry. So

  • any kind of decorative pieces you have: Alice bands, pretty bits of ribbon. Just pop them

  • on the crown of the head to give that really pretty look.

  • [music]

  • Okay well there's look one done and dusted. And what we can do now is create Blair's signature

  • undo by simply pulling back a few strands of the curly hair.

  • So if you take a section just behind the hairband and leave that to one side. And do the same

  • on the other side. Lightly pull it back into a low pony and secure with a bobbin.

  • So with the remaining hair what we are going to do is kind of criss cross it over each

  • other to create a kind of plait effect down near the nape of the neck.

  • Take a small piece from the right side of the head, this is going to be your starting

  • block. Cross it over and pin into place on the opposite side of the pony tail. So you're

  • going to repeat this on the opposite side.

  • [music]

  • So when you get to the last strand of hair, pull it back like you did with the others

  • but wrap it under the ponytail.

  • And pull it quite tightly. You can really see that it is a plait kind of ponytail effect.

  • So it doesn't matter if you see a few stray bits at the front, it kind of add to the effect.

  • I'm just going to finish off this look with a little bit of hairspray just to hold in

  • place.

  • So there you have it. Two Blair Waldrof look. So guys if there's anything else you'd like

  • us to do just pop a comment in the box below and we will do our best to get around to it.
