Retro side-swept waves

How to wear sideswept hair: two styles to try

by Hannah Ikin -

One of the most wearable hairstyle trends to come out of Paris Fashion Week 2015 is the sideswept look.

We've selected two of the best sideswept styles from the French runways so, whether you're hitting the dancefloor or spending the day running errands, you can do so with on-trend, sideswept tresses!

Evening: Vintage volume

If you're after a more dramatic evening look, then this high volume, vintage-inspired hairstyle from the Jean Paul Gaultier show is a good option!

Combining a dangerously high quiff, full waves and a deep side part, this hairstyle will bring some old school glamour and attitude to any look!

Get the look

Step one

Work some volumizing mousse throughout your locks, then use a comb to create a deep side part.

Step two

Separate your hair into medium-sized sections. Take a large roller and roll up one of the sections, fixing it in place at the top with hairpins. Repeat untill all of the hair is set in rollers, mist with hairspray and leave for an hour or two.

Step three

Undo the rollers, then gently brush the curls through to get that loose, undone finish. Sweep the body of your hair over one shoulder.

Step four

On the side with the least hair, rub some gel onto the palms of your hands, then smooth the hair flat against the side of the head for a half hawk effect.

Daytime: Barely there waves

For something a little bit more daytime friendly, go for side-swept loose waves, as seen at the Maison Rabih Kayrouz show. Not only is this look effortlessly chic, but it also happens to be extemely easy to achieve.

Get the look

Step one

Create a side part and scrunch some wave spray throughout your locks.
