Hair Trend Alert: The Sidesweep Down-Do

From luscious long flowing locks to cute crops, if you’re looking to wear your hair down, this season it’s all about the extreme side-sweep hair parting. And what about the Big Day? A stunning side parting is the hottest look for a chic update on casual hair styling. Want to know how to achieve the trend? See our top three looks below: Go for tousled waves à la Alexa Chung for a more relaxed boho vibe, look to Kim Kardashian for ultimate Hollywood glitz or Margot Robbie and her perfectly poker straight locks. Here’s our top three side sweep styles:

 

Glam Volume

Want your blowdry to have serious bounce? Use a large round brush drying individual sections, pin into barrel curls and leave to cool. When your hair is completely cool you’ll have hot Hollywood curls. Part hair to the side and use some texture spray to tease the roots and add volume.

 

Sleek & Sexy

Use a paddle brush to dry your hair poker straight. Part your hair deep to one side and apply a small amount of gel right at the roots to get a super sleek style.

 

Beachy Sidesweep

If the above looks are too extreme, just part your hair to one side and barrel tong each section into cute tousled waves for a Cali-cool take on the trend. Break up sections with your fingers and apply texture spray to keep subtle volume.
