After making a deep side part for your side swept hairstyle, use Bed Head by TIGI Wax Stick on your hair for shine and hold through your hair. Then make a classic bun at the nape of your neck, or angle the bun to one side. Leave ends untucked so that they fan out. For the front, pick out a few baby hairs or wisps to frame your face.

3. Side Swept Half Up

Messy side swept hairstyles can be rocker chic and glam too. When creating the side swept part, don’t aim for perfection, but aim to make it a more #Iwokeuplikethis vibe. Then gather some strands into a mini-bun at the back of the head, and the rest of the strands are loose and long.

4. Messy Bun and Bobby Pin

First create a side swept part, then make a low bun at either one side or at the nape, but leave a few strands loose on one side. Then simply pin the pieces with a bobby or jeweled hair pin.
