Celebs love it. Catwalk models rate it. And DDG gals drool over it. No... not talking about Ian Somerhalder's guns (sorry ladies), but rather the red carpet-worthy hairstyle that's taking the mane world by storm; a deep side part paired with wavy tresses. The deeply sophisticated 'do is being worn from the runways to the streets to the red carpets, with screen sirens such as Jessica Biel, Blake Lively and Amanda Seyfried paying some serious homage to the glamazon style. Alana Dunphy, session stylist at , predicts big things for this haute look.
"Think sleek, glossy glamorous classic hair. 1940's, 50's style wave and movement with side partings... mostly down with beautiful, shiny, luscious locks or a deep side part sweeping across the face with a smooth simple chignon/bun at the back," she said.
To conjure up your own take on the trend, run an anti-frizz and leave-in conditioner through wet hair for a super glossy effect. Once hair is dry, work some voluminising powder (we love the new ) through the roots to give them a bit of oomph. Then decide which side you want your hair to be on and create a deep side part using the arch of your eyebrow as a guide. Next, curl your locks with large barrel tongs, clipping them as you go along. Once you're done, unclip your curls and brush the waves out with a flat headed brush to create a cascading effect. Tuck the side of hair opposite to your part behind your ear and finish with a spritz of gel hairspray and some shine serum through you're ends. Finito!
