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.

Lucy Liu looked oh-so-elegant at Emmy Awards 2014 wearing her long, thick mane styled in this sophisticated side swoop. Here we have the usual blow drying and side parting.  Special finish touch that makes this style so breathtaking is curling the side section, which is easy to accomplish with vertical position of curling iron. Shining serum is a must if you want your hair to glow like this.

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?

French journalist Celine Bosquet can be totally proud of her glossy and  silky mane. We also give her thumbs up for the red lipstick. If you also like what you see, glam up your side parting by taking following steps:

  1. Apply very small amount of hair cream on dump hair. Add some anti frizz serum too.
  2. Create center parting and blow dry your hair section by section with medium size round brush.
  3. When you finish blow drying, create deep side parting. This should do perfect for volume on the crown.
  4. Spray with shining serum.

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.

If we should judge according to runways, is all about side parting of your hair, making it sleek on the top and leaving rest of your hair to fall in XL curls, hint of waves or even super sleek style. One more news is that no one yet decided to put ombre on the shelf until next retro round. Amber Heard wore this classy side swept hairstyle on 2013 Oscars. Key is to sweep your hair from one side and let it lie on the opposite shoulder like a genuine star from the golden age of Hollywood.

Worried about how much hair it takes to make that fishtail braid and still have that wild, curly mane all voluminous and cool on the side? Worry not, no need to renounce those extra few locks of volume. All you need is faux braid hair extension to clip it at your nape and cover with rest of your hair.

If this was her backstage mood captured, then you can imagine how Gwen Stefani rocked on stage as a surprise guest at Hollywood Bowl this year. Gwen has two hairstyle passions: vintage and punk, and she is not rarely seen opting for both at the same time. Her luscious, blond locks are curled, parted on the side with side section tucked behind her ear. This time her hairstyle is channeling Marlene Dietrich, while her outfit gets all the punk part for it self.

Well, hello wild side of 80’s again! Amber Heard arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of 3 Days to Kill’ movie wearing this adorable hairstyle! Her hair was blow dried with diffuser to create these loose, messy waves. When repeating this hair style, moderate frizz is just fine, so very small amount of volumizing hair creme is enough for the texture of natural straight hair. After deep side parting, apply hair gel to the side and on the crown (max 2-3” from your roots), roll the side section towards back and secure it with pins. 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!

Lea Seydox arrived at Miu Miu Fashion Show wearing this irresistible, sassy, side parted bob. The extra mile is this half up, which is actually a ‘quarter up’ and which works perfectly for both blunt and layered bob hairstyles. Repeating requires following: apply generous amount of hair cream on dump hair, use round brush for thorough blow drying and create middle parting line. Collect your bangs and crown from the wider side, tease a bit, choose a discrete barrette and clip this section on the back of your head.

Care for a radical change of your bob hairstyle?  Opt for something really edgy that turns jet black hair into va va voom. Permanent option requires bleaching prior to applying turquoise color while test and temporary option require  color spray. Yes, officially Kylie Jenner is wearing dip dye, but avoid straight line when applying bleach and final result will be smashing. To achieve more natural zigzag, you can tease your hair 3-4″ to the roots before applying bleach.

Rita Ora just became master of wearing bob hairstyle. In case you were thinking that you can’t create too many different styles with this hair length, here is counterargument. Apply generous amount of hair cream and blow dry your hair with medium size round brush. Side part your hair, rub small amount of creme between your palms and apply it to the side sections.  Comb the left side and tuck it behind your ear. Comb the right side until sleek and pin it on the back of your head, leaving crown and back sections to conceal the pin. Remember the key word – sleek! Not the same as “wet look” by any chance, so stick to creme instead of gel.

Kim Kardashian’s usual drop-dead-gorgeous, thick, long and healthy mane in all glam & polished edition at Met Ball 2014. We love her idea of loose, soft waves created with blow drying. They give such appealing, neat and vivid texture to long hair. Side parting should get a big ‘yes’ from every long haired lady in need for instant elegance, but luscious tresses as these require some additional attention. Give a shot to argan oil based hair masks for a while.

In the year 2014 it is hard not to praise beach waves after seeing them so many times on the red carpet. Every hair length brings its own special flavor to the texture of these waves (Please don’t make us decide which we prefer. It is impossible decision!) Liya Kebede’s layered, medium length hair looked so classy and vibrant with this texture at CFDA 2014. If you prefer moderate, casual look when waving your hair, you can opt for discreet layers next time you visit your hair dresser.

It is practically impossible to remain indifferent while looking at hair of as impressive length as this one. Naomi Campbell arrived at CFDA Fashion Awards 2014 wearing her extra long, dark brown mane side parted and loose. You’re craving for these gorgeous mermaid waves, dontcha? Okay then, you need cone shaped curling iron to begin with. The larger barrel the better! Wider side of the barrel should be closer to the hair roots while you are swirling hair sections spirally around it. Prepare your hair with some heat protection serum and a small amount of hair cream applied at the ends. Start with curling at nape sections, continue towards back of your head, then curl sections on both sides and finish with crown and front sections. When you are done with curling and your hair is cooled, comb it softly with paddle brush and voila!

Beyonce was wearing this hairstyle on promotion of her “Beyonce pulse” fragrance. How to make low side braid look so glamorous? Simple: side part your hair, sweep it over opposite shoulder, braid it, secure it with elastic band and pay some special attention to your bangs when making this soft wave. Not just any other braid out there when you have few sunkissed highlights in it. We agree with Beyonce – when asseccorizing this hairstyle with earrings, they should not hang bellow your earlap, and yes, they should sparkle.

Jessica’s stunning look at Met Ball 2014 is speaking volumes about vintage 40’s being unmistakable choice if you want boost of glamour in your hair. Before rolling up to the nape into queue curl, it is of utter importance to give some body to your hair by blow drying it with round brush ( tease a bit on the crown if your hair is thin!). Here we have deep side parting and some serious action with curling iron, so do use heat protection serum. Divide your hair into sections, roll them up one by one, and secure with bobby pins at the nape. Make sure you applied generous amount of hairspray. You probably want your hair in place throughout the entire ball, instead of turning into pumpkin after midnight. Offtopic: thumbs up for those earrings!

Red carpet affection for braids is still very much alive and kicking, according to Cannes Film Festival 2014. Eva Longoria’s hairstyle is only confirming this affection. Her discreetly sunkissed hair was parted on the side, blow dried and slightly backcombed for additional volume. Her wispy bangs are swept to the side, delicately touching her forehead. Her hair was then braided into disheveled, side swept fishtail braid and secured with elastic. Minimum hair length to support repeating this hairstyle is four inches bellow shoulders.

Nicole Kidman is surely a lady with vast experience of walking on the red carpet, so she could have pretty good idea what is glamorous hairstyle for the occasion. Her hair was parted on the side, her bangs were twisted in a loose roll and pinned at the side of her head. Her hair was then braided into loose waterfall braid starting at the right side of her nape and ending at the opposite side with cute, wispy, disheveled ponytail.

Pop star rising Rita Oro is wearing her long ashy blond hair side parted in this hairstyle, which is latest favorite parting of many top showbiz ladies. Her very smooth and silky perfect loose  curls are simply screaming with glamor. So what’s the catch? Well, besides your usual weapons of choice like heat treatment protection spray, antifrizz serum, mousse, cream and the likes, blow dry your hair section by section directing the air flow down the shaft. Last, but most important, hold your curling iron up straight instead of horizontally while curling large sections of your hair.

Let’s go back for a moment to 20’s when this hairstyle was the expression of rebellion (against traditional long hair and complicated updos), pushing the limits and being forward in such a sophisticated way. Seems like it will never lose its elegance and glam, as even now, almost hundred years later, you can not look anything else but breathtaking and perfectly styled when wearing it. We would also add that smokey eyes makeup and red lipstick are not really optional… it is rather a must for completing the style! You do know that making fingerwaves does not include heat treatment for your hair? You did not? Ah, you are most welcome!

Side Parted Long Blond Hairstyle With Victory Roll

Summing up the total of impression and elegance, deep side parting of your long,..

Summing up the total of impression and elegance, deep side parting of your long, blond mane and deep side parting with victory roll are not comparable by any chance. Extra effort applied for the latter is negligible. Credits for coolness of this hairstyle go to the contrast of single one victory roll sassiness and looseness of remaining hair. We love the idea of avoiding additional curls and waves, which is bringing a bit of edge to this look. Try it yourself: depending on your hair texture, a day old hair could be a good idea for starting point, at least when it comes to fine, thin hair. Otherwise add some hair cream. Take the whole right side section, take your bangs, take crown section all the way to the parting line, join them all together, brush them until smooth and start rolling from the ends. Direction of rolling should be from the right side towards the crown. When you reach the roots, secure the roll with bobby pins. Tuck the opposite side hair behind your ear. Fix with hairspray.

Charlize Theron could be thankful for her role in Mad Max sequel, otherwise she would hardly decide to cut her gorgeous blond locks off and we wouldn’t have the opportunity to see that Sharon Stone is not the only super glamorous blonde which is able to wear short hairstyle with such grace on the red carpet. Give your short style some body by applying small amount of mousse on dump hair and lifting it from the roots while blow drying.

With chic accessorizing, even a very easy to repeat hairdo can look absolutely amazing! Beyonce’s hair here is middle parted and wrapped in simple chignon at her nape. That which made her style redcarpetly appealing is this beaded birdcage veil. The only catch with this vintage little thing is to match it properly with what you are wearing (this Givenchy Haute Couture  is example of excellent match), so it is for very special occasions only.
