The wavy bob slicked down on one side, a contrasting graphic and feminine look

Side hair isn't just for long and extra-long hair. The long bob, also called a clavicut, can also play with chic asymmetric styles, such as this mid-length wavy bob, slicked down on one side.

A long bob that's all about volume

3/4 wavy hair, 1/4 slicked down the side of your head: this clavicut bob is both flexible and graphic. The slicked-down side not only allows you to expose a beautiful ear piece, but it also accentuates the movement of the loose, wavy section of hair: the perfect contrast.

An asymmetric "wob" which requires texture

Unfortunately, only owners of medium to thick hair can try out this long wavy bob slicked down on one side. Straight and fine hair lacks the texture needed for waves, and risks revealing the scalp on the slicked-down side. A good layered cut and the right amount of texturizing products can help, but the result won't be as effective as with naturally thick hair.

A two-in-one product for a two-in-one hairstyle

To create this sophisticated but natural glam-rock look, L'Oréal Professionnel hairstylist Delphine Courteille recommends Scruff Me. When applied by an expert hand, this gel allows you to both slick down the hair on one side, and to tousle it on the other without a sticky effect - for perfectly balanced asymmetry.
