Blake Lively's long ponytail

At the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, Blake Lively chose a trendy hairstyle -- the ponytail -- to complement her sultry blue dress. Her long blonde locks hung down her back in a straight ponytail that originated from right smack in the middle of the back of her head. To create this casual yet sophisticated ponytail yourself, check out these easy steps from SheKnows.

Blake Lively's long ponytail

Step 1

Spray dry hair with an ion heat protection spray.

Step 2

Run a hot flat iron gently through your strands. Every strand does not have to be stick straight, as you'll notice in Blake's ponytail.

Step 3

With your fingers, run some styling gel through your roots. Comb your hair back into a ponytail, secure it tightly (but not too tight!) at the back of your head. Use a fine-tooth comb to straighten out any lumps in the hair.

Step 4

Spray with finishing hold hairspray.
