A side sweep with a middle part AKA the best of both worlds

Side parted hairstyles have proven to be one of this year's most popular looks, creating a trend that is set to last well into 2015 and beyond. The great thing about side-swept styles is that they come in all kids of different formats, like this look with an ever-so-slightly out of place middle part.

On paper, this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. After all, why would you leave the part in the middle when everything else is distinctly off-center? Well, we have no idea, but for some reason it works!

If anything, it's the perfect way to team the middle part trend (parts are important right now...) with the side sweep thing in just one style.

Get the look

Step one
Starting with dry hair, brush it through to detangle, then use a tail comb to part it right down the middle. Comb the hair through to fix the part.

Step two
Spray the hair with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and use a flat iron to straighten your hair.

Top tip - If you just washed your hair, apply the spray and blow-dry with a paddle brush to straighten most of it out first. You should think of your flat iron as more of a finishing tool.

Step three
On one side, twist the hair back away from your face and pin it back. If you want extra detail, you can French braid it backwards from your hairline.

Step four
Gather the lengths of your hair over the opposite shoulder and complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray for great hold and maximum frizz control.

What do you think? Could you get on board with this multi-trend hairstyle?
