This is a really great look, especially if you have a round face, a big forehead, or if you’re trying to cover the acne pimples on your forehead…JUST KIDDING!

Here’s the easy “how to” instructions on creating the sexy side swept bangs.

Side swept bangs tend to suit alot of face shapes and look good on almost everyone. They can hide a larger forehead or downplay certain facial features.

*Assuming you already have bangs”

First of all, start with wet bangs. Use a little styling mousse or hair serum while your hair is still wet. Run it through your hair from roots to end.

Next, blowdry. Grab a section of your bangs between two fingers and blowdry the roots only. Aim the dryer above first, and then alternate and left the hair up and blowdry the roots from below. This way your hair won’t be too flat or too puffy.

When the roots are almost dry, use a flat brush to curve the ends under, or sweep to the side. If you want your bangs to be sleek and straight, use a flat iron on the bottom 2/3 of your bangs.

Get a little bit of gel or wax between your fingertips and rub it on the ends of your bangs, just to define the ends. And then spray it all lightly with some hair spray to hold it in place.

That’s all your really need! You don’t want to use heavy amounts of product on your bangs, otherwise they will just look heavy and greasy on your face.

I also find if I’m going to style my hair differently to the way I usually wear it, it is much easier to start with fresh, washed hair. So if you want to change your part line, or wear your bangs differently, wash or wet your hair first, and then style.

The great thing about long bangs is you can pin them back when you want a change. You can style your hair in the pouf.

Then use a large base curling iron making sure to apply hot sets 22 thermal setting mist to each three-inch section of hair and clip each section once done until cool. Brush hair out. Apply a small amount of glass 01 smoothing serum throughout, then backcomb and smooth over the sides and back. This gives the shape and height that is perfect for this look. Pin back into a French twist, smoothing the top and spray with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to keep shape.

With a large round brush, blow hair up and out starting at the nape. Take small sections and be sure each section is dry before moving onto the next.

The soft, sexy Brigette Bardot-esque look seen here on Eva Mendes is great for long, layered hair. Feminine and easy to achieve, this look is great for anyone. Start by applying a few pumps of L’Oreal Bliss Extreme Volumizer to clean, towel-dried hair. Using a large round brush, dry hair up and out, away from the scalp. Work in two sections, starting at the nape. Use this method on the sides and top as well. For the front, blow hair forward and sweep to the side. Once hair is dry, toss upside down and tousle with your fingers. Finish off with a mist of flexible hold hairspray.
