Sometimes, a classic hairstyle is the best option, even on your wedding day! If you're looking for 'the one' hairstyle to tie the knot with, timeless sideswept waves are definitely worth considering. With oodles of old Hollywood glamour and easy elegance, this all-down hairstyle is the perfect look for any bride-to-be who doesn't want to wear her mane in an updo.

To find out how to trial the look before your big day, follow the tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply a smoothing heat protectant cream throughout.

Step 2

Part your hair deep on your favorite side, then divide it into sections before blow-drying.

Step 3

Blow-dry each section completely, waiting until it's only slightly damp before using a round brush to smooth the lengths and ends. At the front, sweep the hair to one side with a brush as it dries.

Step 4

Once your hair is completely dry, spritz it with a heat protectant, then use a 1 inch curling iron to curl the lengths. Clip each piece of hair up in a loop to cool when it comes off the iron so that it sets into lasting curls.

Step 5

After curling, brush the hair to smooth it, run your fingers through it, and set with a strong hold, brushable hairspray. Add your accessory of choice and you're good to go!
