Side-swept hairstyles are always a glamorous option for a night out or a special occasion, largely because Hollywood waves are a classic, staple red carpet look. At Instanbul Fashion Week, however, we spotted this voluminous side-swept twist that quite literally puts a fresh spin on the style, albeit with a chic vintage vibe.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, damp hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray throughout. Rough-dry your hair on a medium heat, using your hands to keep it straight-ish.

Step 2
Once dried, brush your hair through and define a part deep on your favorite side.

Step 3
Mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and curl the mid-lengths and ends with a medium-barrel curling iron to get loose, rounded waves.

Step 4
After curling, take a large piece from the front on the side of your part with the most hair. Twist and pin this piece of hair back, securing it from behind your ear down to the nape of your neck.

Step 5
Gather all of the curls over the opposite shoulder and mist them with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Muss and gently tease the hair to build volume.

Step 6
When you're happy with the overall shape, arrange the majority of your hair over one shoulder and complete the look with Advanced Hairspray LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold.
