There are a lot of different opinions when it comes to styling short hair. Some people claim it's way easier and a whole lot faster than styling longer hair whereas others might tell you it involves more styling because there's less room for error / frizz / general chaos. But, as with all lengths, there are a few short hairstyles that are fast, effective and pretty. Introducing the fresh side-sweep.

This style is a great option for day two or three hair and it flatters most face shapes. To get the look, just follow the tutorial below!

Step one

Brush your hair through to remove any tangles then roughly part it on one side. It doesn't matter which one, just go with whatever looks and feels best to you. If you can't decide, take a look at our guide to choosing the right side swept style.

Step two

Take a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum by L'Oréal Paris and warm it in your hands.

Step three

Run the gun through your hair in quick, sweeping motions.

Step four

Smooth your hair into a side-sweep, using your fingertips to guide it from your part all the way over to the other side. The product will ensure you have plenty of hold so it will all stay put!

Step five

Flatten the side with less hair and use a bobby pin or two to hold the hair back if needed. It really all depends on how thick your hair is and how much product you're comfortable applying.

Step six

Double check the back and arrange your bangs however you want.

Et voilà, say hello to your new hairstyle!
