The side-swept wavy bob: short and glamorous

There is no way that side-swept hair is just for long locks. This bob can definitely 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!

Nobody puts the side-swept wavy bob in a corner ...

Throwing your wavy bob to one side doesn't mean putting it aside! The side parting 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. Glamorous and edgy, it not only shows off your best profile, but also subtly reveals your shoulders.

A little asymmetry can balance your face

'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. Balance is everything with this modern, feminine cut. Even women with long hair can try it, just like with a classic 'faux bob'.

A style for the stars!

For the side-swept wavy bob to achieve the level of sophistication and glamour we see on red carpets around the world, it's best left to a professional. It's easy to underestimate the level of skill needed to fix hair in place, putting in pins so that they disappear!
