Short hair side sweep

Finally, the weekend is calling and it's time to start thinking about going out hair once again (as if we ever stopped). If you have short hair, we have the perfect style for you to try in the shape of this gloriously messy, not to mention sexy, side sweep! It creates a sultry peekaboo frame that does gorgeous job of showcasing a statement makeup look.

This style works on all kinds of short cuts, but lends itself particularly well to short bobs or anything with a few choppy layers.

1/ Get the look

Step one
Starting with damp hair, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout. Rough-dry with the concentrator attachment, keeping the airflow pointed toward the floor.

Step two
Once dried, part your hair deep on one side by flipping it all over with your hands. If you have bangs, great, if not, you can just fake 'em by side-swiping some of the front pieces diagonally across your forehead.

Step three
Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty in your hands then sweep it through your locks to add texture and hold your side-swept arrangement in place. Then, pin back the hair on the smaller side.

Step four
Make any final adjustments with your hands, then mist your hair liberally with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray. This will add shine and keep frizz and flyaways at bay.
