'My hair is a safety net for me', says Blake Lively

Blake Lively uses her blonde hair as a “safety net”.

The 26-year-old actress, who is married to actor Ryan Reynolds, is known for her golden locks. In October 2013, Blake was named the new face of L’Oreal Paris.

"Honestly, I am a shy person," Blake told Hello! magazine. "My hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed."

The actress uses a deep conditioner hair mask, preferably Kerastase Reflection Chroma Captive Hair Masque, to wet her hair and she doesn’t rinse it completely out. She then places her hair in a ballerina bun on the top of her head to dry, she told the magazine. She also applies extra virgin coconut oil to the ends of her hair before shampooing.

"Often you see people on the red carpet with tight up-dos, but that makes me feel stiff," Blake further explained her style.

The Age of Adaline actress’s fashion influences are Katherine Hepburn and Grace Kelly, who she thinks “looked like princesses”.

The actress has been married to 37-year-old Ryan since September 2012, and the couple has battled constant rumours about when they will start a family.

It's thought Blake was initially focusing on her career, but since that's going well she is rumoured to be thinking more and more about being a mother. Ryan Reynolds is thought to have been ready for little ones for some time but was happy to wait for his wife to get on board.

“I always want to wear clothes that my children will one day look back on and say, 'Oh, you looked amazing - why didn't you keep that?' Not, 'Oh my God - I can't believe you wore that,'” Blake gushed.
