Hair Trend Alert! Side Swept

There's something about a side parting that can really change a girl's image. Yes, it's a simple move (we're not talking anything too drastic here) but it's the kind of subtle difference that says effortless, sleek, stylish.


That probably explains why the style was so popular at the Autumn/Winter 2013 shows. From Calvin Klein in New York to Chloe and Lanvin in Paris, side partings were everywhere and the trend has become a favourite on the red carpet ever since.

The best thing about this look? It's versatile. At Chloe, hair was slick, glossy and super straight but partings don't have to be preppy.

At Lanvin, blotted berry lips were teamed with dishevelled ponytails while shorter styles were roughed up and swept over to the side.

And if you're going for the lived-in approach? This is where a good texturizing styling spray comes in handy (we love Label m's Sea Salt Spray for a tousled non-sticky finish.)

Now the only question is, which side? Left or right? We'll let these A-list looks help you make up your mind...
