Sealing her fate as one of the best heads of hair in the business the 26-year-old can be somewhat on a hairstyle chameleon, sporting anything from a chic bun to a cool braid but when Blake plays her trump card - her trademark loose voluminous waves, that’s when the competition really heats up.

Want to nail Blake’s effortless waves, it’s easy, just follow the simple steps below.

**Step 1: Spritz VO5 Plump It Up Heat Defence Volumising Spritz & some L'Oréal Paris Studio Line Matt & Messy Shine-Free Salt Spray onto wet hair before rough drying hair until 80% dried. This will add plenty of volume and texture to your locks. Tip – dry hair upside down to add extra lift. **

**Step 2: Using a comb create a loose side parting and blow dry almost dried roots with a round natural bristle brush, pulling upwards to add plenty of root lift. **

Step 3: Separate the hair into two securing the top half on top of your head with a clip

**Step 4: Using a medium barrel tong take a two inch section of hair from the bottom half and wrap around holding for 10 seconds to ensure a loose wave. Complete on entire bottom section before taking down top section and repeating. **

Step 5: Using a soft brush lightly tease the curls to pull out into loose waves and finish with L’oreal Elnett Hairspray Flexible - allowing natural movement for your waves.
