It is true that not all of us are blessed like Ariana with huge, voluminous, long, thick mane cascading over our back, but this should not stop you from repeating this look if you are crushing on it. Faux pony tail extension will do perfectly fine, as you can conceal the clip with your own hair. Faking is more than justified for this level of glam. Collect your hair and tie it in a high pony tail on the crown. If you are using extension, clip it at this stage. Take a section of your hair, wrap it around elastic (or clip) and secure it with bobby pin. Creating loose curls with curling iron is optional.

Well hello 90’s and teasing the side swept bangs! Kate Upton sure channels the best out of super model era. We are impressed with her blond mane at VMA 2014 very much and if you feel the same, it’s time for action:

  1. Prefer hair creme over mousse to keep your ‘do at place. Apply small amount between your palms and rub it on dump hair.
  2. Blow dry your hair with large, round brush.
  3. Create side parting.
  4. Tease your bangs and one more 2” section behind them. Pull them back and smooth with paddle brush. Remember that zero trace of teasing is allowed, so make it invisible.
  5. Curl your bangs and few more thin side sections with large barrel curling iron.
  6. Set your hair to the place with your fingers. Avoid comb and brush at this stage.
  7. Mist with hairspray.

What a lovely statement of elegance! Sarah Hyland looked stunning at Emmy Awards 2014 wearing her hair in this adorable ‘do.

The usual side swoop spiced with vintage wavy bangs and curls proven over and over again as a killer combo to glam up your hair. It is very much worth of consideration to be paired with wedding dress, other than being perfect for those very special evenings. White dress plus diamonds-are-the-girl’s-best-friends make no surprise on the choice of make up that Suki opted for. Would anything else but Marylin Monroe inspired ivory eyeshadow, black eyeliner and red lipstick complete this look better?

Or should we say “the unusual version of the usual side swoop”? Naomi’s hair is slightly teased at front and on the crown, pulled back, combed with paddle brush and fixed with lots of hairspray, so there is no straight parting line on the side. Pay attention on the bangs, as they are set to the place with hairspray instead of bobby pin. Sections from the left side are twisted at the nape to create a form resembling waterfall braid, but no braiding was applied. This section is pinned at the right side of her nape and it continues into lovely, blond curls resting at her right shoulder. Mind blowing creation indeed!

Hilary Swank’s opted for sleek side swept hairstyle at Cannes 2014. Contrast of bangs and hair length was major factor along with different curling types of the two. Her bangs are significantly more curvy compared to the rest of her hair, which is only slightly wavy. Her light brown hair is more sleek at the roots thanks to generous amount of hair creme, but ends are more silky, meaning that less of product should be applied at the ends when repeating this style.

Roll the ends of the back section inwards and pin them at the nape. Finger comb the crown section to lift your hair from the roots. Hairspray is optional, but this smile is a must!

To achieve more natural zigzag, you can tease your hair 3-4″ to the roots before applying bleach.
