Tousled beach waves are pretty much the biggest hairstyle trend of the year, in some cases both literally and figuratively speaking. The undone texture appeals to everyone because sometimes, a messy look is just what you need (and is easier than taming seriously stubborn locks on a tight schedule). If you're wondering how to jump on this mercifully mussed beauty bandwagon, we have the perfect hairstyle for you. Introducing the side part braid.

Reminiscent of a faux half hawk, this style has an edgy, slightly bohemian feel. You can dress it up or down depending on the occasion and it's the perfect way to showcase your 'best side'. To find out how to get the look, all you need to do is watch the video above. We've also put the written instructions below to make things as easy as possible.

Step one

Define a large section of hair along one side of your head and secure the rest into a ponytail to keep it all out of the way.

Step two

Start braiding the loose section along the side from front to back. Keep going until you've braided all the way down to the ends then secure with a small hair tie.

Step three

Undo the ponytail and spray the loose hair with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout.

Step four

Divide the hair into three equal sections and braid each one separately.

Step five

Blow-dry the braids completely.

Step six

Once dried take the three braids out and loosen them with your fingers to break them into tousled waves and you're done!

Top tip - If you want to add even more texture to your hair, scrunch a small amount of styling gum through the ends to create a piecey, bed head look.
