Blake, 26, says she uses a deep conditioner hair mask (specifically Kerastase's Reflection Chroma Captive Hair Masque), doesn't rinse it completely from her ends and then dries it until it's slightly wet, before popping it into a ballerina bun. She also swears by applying extra virgin coconut oil to the ends of her hair before shampooing.

"Honestly I am a shy person and my hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed," she explains about her signature 'do. "Often you see people on the red carpet with tight updos, but that makes me feel stiff."

As for her stunning red carpet appearances, Blake confesses that she doesn't just dress up for events -- her sophisticated style carries on in her home life.

"I'm not happy wearing sweats because I love dressing up so much," she says. “I liken myself to a little girl having a tea party at the house all of the time. I actually dress up more in my home than I do walking down the street just because it is so much fun to play dress-up.”

And what’s new for the face of Gucci Premiere and L’Oreal Paris?

Besides having just completed her new romantic drama The Age of Adaline, she's also currently decorating her New York loft which she shares with husband Ryan Reynolds.

"It's a lot more rewarding," she surprisingly says of decorating. "With film and TV, you don't see the results for months. Building a home, you get immediate gratification."
