Blake Lively has recalled a time when she was plagued by acne and had to wear braces.

The Age of Adaline star has some of Hollywood’s hottest hairstylists at her disposal and plenty of other professionals would probably jump at the chance to style her luscious long blonde locks.

However, Blake prefers to create her own hairdos.

"I do my hair a lot for things, because I'm always asking people when they're doing my hair [many questions so that I can learn]. I'm that annoying person!" she told Us Weekly magazine.

Blake appreciates all types of hairstyles, but she doesn’t necessarily enjoy donning prim and proper looks all the time.

The stunning 27-year-old claims her favourite ’do of all-time involves lots of stray strands.

"I like braids – crazy, messy braids,” she smiled.

Blake’s new movie, The Age of Adaline, is set during the 1950s.

She absolutely adored donning all the vintage fashion her character wears while filming the picture.

"I love the fashion and music of the 1940s, and I had some pretty cool costumes in the '50s, too," Blake noted. "There was one scene where it was raining and very film noir, and I had this really cool hairdo."

Blake is known as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. But she recalls a time during her teenage years when her style was quite clumsy.

"Yeah, hello [I had an awkward phase!]," Blake laughed. "Braces, lots of acne, and, you know, eyeshadow that matched my coloured pants because the most popular girl in school did that! She was awesome."
