The side-swept wavy bob: short and glamorous

No, side-swept hair is not reserved for long manes. The bob can also hang with the rock and edgy crew. It's the darling of the red carpet and the celebrities that walk it (in their 12-inch heels)... Let's have a look at the wavy side-swept bob!

No-one leaves the side-swept wavy bob in the corner...

Throwing your wavy bob to one side doesn't mean putting it aside! The choice of words is just as important as the placement: the side part is a strategic decision, worn by many of the biggest stars on the planet. The side-swept wavy bob is a way of achieving side hair for short locks. Both glamorous and edgy, it not only shows off your best profile, but also subtly reveals your shoulders.

A little asymmetry can balance your face shape

"An overly asymmetric face shape can be corrected (with this asymmetric look)" confirms Denis Holbecq, L'Oréal Professionnel's hair stylist ambassador. "The side-swept wavy bob looks great on square-, round-, and triangle-shaped faces, but not on long faces" he adds. It's all about balance with this modern and feminine cut. Even women with long hair can try it, just like with a classic "faux bob".

A celebrity cut, a style for the stars!

To achieve the same level of sophistication and glamour from the side-swept wavy as the one we see on the red carpets around the world, it's best left to a professional. To fix the hair in place, it's easy to under-estimate considerably the level of skill needed to put in the pins so that they stay invisible!
