Emilie Luciano, ECRU New York Styling Director, offers these simple steps and fab products needed to create Blake's chic 'do.

Smooth your hair into a ponytail

First, run ECRU Silk Nectar Serum throughout hair from roots to ends. Next, take a boar bristle paddle brush and brush hair until it's smooth and ready to be put into a ponytail.

Create the messy bun

Use a rubber band to start placing hair in the motion of a ponytail, but do not pull the hair all the way through. Instead, keep hair looking like a loop. Dirty the loop with some styling or scrunching spray. Then, pull and tuck random strands of the loop in different directions with hairpins or bobby pins, working into the shape of a round bun. Pinning the hair here and there with each strand creates that messy bun look.

Hold it in place

Finish the look with ECRU Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX to really hold the style in place.
