The 87th Academy Awards will take place this Sunday, February 22, and we can't wait to see what Hollywood's finest will do with their hair on the biggest night of the year! While the countdown to the Oscars 2015 continues, we figured now was the perfect time to zoom in on one of the most glamorous hairstyles of all time: side-swept Hollywood waves.

Why it became a classic hairstyle

For the best part of a century, the likes of Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn and, more recently, Blake Lively, have turned cascading waves into a red carpet beauty staple. It's the kind of hairstyle that catapults any ensemble into to a whole new stratosphere of glittering gorgeousness, whether at an awards ceremony, a prestigious gala or a movie premiere.

It's a hairstyle that works on just about every haircut from a bob to flowing, Rapunzel-esque tresses.

So, if ever you find yourself with an invitation to some swanky soirée and have no idea what to do with your hair, try this iconic look - you can wear it with everything from your favorite little black dress to a ball gown!

How to style it

Despite the impossibly glamorous results, the look can be yours in much less time than you might think. To master perfect screen siren waves, all you need to do is check out the easy video tutorial below.
