Long Side-Swept Waves: A Timelessly Feminine Style

Blending waves and side-swept hair, this look 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 ignored!

While certain big names in the fashion world have already deemed classic side-hair styles 'passé', this definitely isn't the case with the side-swept wavy look for long hair. These waves, cascading over one shoulder, leaving the other exposed, are the definition of confident femininity. Its ability to be versatile and extraordinary has completely won us over: glamorous and elegant, yet with a natural look that can be worn everyday.

An asymmetric look with balance

Because it sharpens cheekbones and jaw lines, this wavy side-parted side hair lengthens round faces. Blonde, chestnut and red shades look great with this style, as the wavy asymmetry catches the light on their natural shades.

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: 'The asymmetry needs to be balanced with one slicked-down side and one wavy side, whose volume needs to be worked carefully in order to maintain a harmonious look. To create this style with no faux-pas, it's a good idea to turn to a professional, who knows best how to master those mischievous waves.
