Long wavy side-swept hair: the most feminine side-hair style

A blend of waves and side-hair, wavy side-swept hair is a must-have asymmetric style for long hair. We can't get enough of its feminine glamour, which isn't too over-the-top for an everyday look.

A wavy asymmetric style that won't be left on the bench!

These cascading waves swept over one shoulder, leaving the other exposed, are the definition of confident femininity. Glamorous yet natural-looking enough for everyday wear, we're won over by its ability to be versatile yet far from ordinary. No wonder this gorgeous hairstyle regularly makes it way onto the red carpet!

An asymmetric look, yes, but also balanced

This wavy side hair with side part lengthens round faces, thanks to its ability to sharpen cheeks and jaw lines. Blonde, chestnut and red shades look great with this style, as the wavy asymmetry catches the light on their natural hues.

A look more dangerous than it appears...

According to Delphine Courteille, hairstylist for L'Oréal Professionnel, the long wavy side-swept style is a risky look: "You need to balance the asymmetry with one slicked-down side and one wavy side, whose volume needs to be worked on carefully in order to maintain a harmonious ensemble, unless you're after a Tina Turner-inspired look!" To achieve this style without any beauty faux-pas, it's a good idea to turn to a professional, who'll know better than anyone how to master these mischievous waves.
