gulp-livereload can be passed into a stream:

var gulp = require('gulp'),
    less = require('gulp-less'),
    livereload = require('gulp-livereload'),
    watch = require('gulp-watch');

gulp.task('less', function() {
  gulp.src('less/*.less')
    .pipe(watch())
    .pipe(less())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('css'))
    .pipe(livereload());
});

or make use of gulp.watch

var gulp = require('gulp'),
    less = require('gulp-less'),
    livereload = require('gulp-livereload');

gulp.task('less', function() {
  gulp.src('less/*.less')
    .pipe(less())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('build/css'));
});

gulp.task('watch', function() {
  var server = livereload();
  gulp.watch('build/**').on('change', function(file) {
      server.changed(file.path);
  });
});

Example usage with static server

var livereload = require('gulp-livereload'),
    dest = 'build';

gulp.task('server', function(next) {
  var connect = require('connect'),
      server = connect();
  server.use(connect.static(dest)).listen(process.env.PORT || 80, next);
});

gulp.task('watch', ['server'], function() {
  var server = livereload();
  gulp.watch(dest + '/**').on('change', function(file) {
      server.changed(file.path);
  });
});
