Hairstyle trends may come and go, but side-swept bangs are sticking around. In spite of the best efforts of hair stylists and It girls insisting on the center part, we're still seeing the side part pop up on runways and in magazines and we like it!
The main question is: how far aside should a side-sweep be?
The styles to try
With the under-cut hairstyle gaining popularity, you can part your side-sweep pretty far over and still be in safe territory. As long as you can see well enough, it's all a matter of your own personal tastes. We do have a few tips, however, for particularly easy and effective ways to incorporate the side-sweep.
Separate two-thirds of your hair and flip it to one side, using your fingers to direct it where you want it to go. If you need to, use a little styling putty to keep everything in one place.
The deliberate side part
After you've washed your hair, use a tail comb to part your hair really far to one side. One your hair has dried with a side-part, it'll stay that way until you wash it again.
Part your hair on one side and then use a round brush to blow-dry your bangs in the same direction. Use hairspray to keep them in place.
The side-part is a necessity for this hairstyle. Smooth one side of your hair from front to back and pin in place. Tease the rest of your hair to give it some volume.
