1. Side sweep hair with clips

Hit two trends with one hairstyle. Create a deep side part on your bob or lob, and put hair clips on the side with more hair. You can also use bobby pins that’s different from your hair color to create contrast. Keep the rest of your hair straight. If you want to add more drama to this look, blow dry the tips outward to create a flipped-out bob.

Editor’s tip: Before you blow dry or iron your hair, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray on your hair to protect it from heat damage. This product can also help get rid of frizz.

2. Asymmetric look

This is just like side swept hair with hair clips; the only difference is that you put your clips on the side with less hair. Aside from bobby pins, you can use snap clips in vibrant colors to make your hairstyle fun and playful. You can also wear one statement hair clip to add accent to your overall look.

3. Side sweep blow out

Want to have natural, windblown hair? Create a deep side part by transferring hair to one side of your face using your fingers and blow dry near the roots. To add more body to your ‘do, you can spray dry shampoo on your roots before you blow dry. You can do this in just five minutes—perfect for when you’re in a hurry and trying to beat the morning rush.

4. Sleek updo with a deep side part

The Side Sweep can also be combined with an updo, such as ponytails and buns. To nail this look, your side part needs to be as clean and straight as possible, so make one using a tail comb. Eliminate frizz and fly aways using hairspray or hair serum. Whether you’re going for a low ponytail or bun, make sure that there are no hair ties or bobby pins sticking out for a sleek and polished final look.

Brush your hair to one side to create this sexy look. If you have short hair, the side swept pixie cut can be your day-to-night hairstyle. It perfectly complements your neatly pressed pantsuit and glams up a party outfit when you go clubbing after work hours. This hairstyle can also be a trusty hair hack when your pixie cut starts growing and you haven’t gone back to the salon for a trim.
