Side Swept Curls

I remember the days when I was glued to the tube watching Cher Horowitz from Clueless prance around with flawless hair. Her tasselled side swept hair was perfection and I wanted  every bit of it. My only issue was that I had a curly fro instead of Rapunzel’s long locks. Unfortunately there was a lack of tutorials on YouTube in the 90’s and my dial-up internet was a waste of time. I decided to improvise and create this look out of my curly Q’s and a few bobby pins. I just recently started giving Scout the same look and I wanted to share how easy it is!

What you will need

  • A moisturizing oil or cream to tame frizz. You also need a few bobby pins depending on how tight you would like the hair.

I used Dove Quench Absolute and two ear shaped pins.

 

How to get side swept hair

First Step

  • Add a little product to the hair emphasizing the area you will be pushing to the side
  • Push half of the hair to one side
  • Start at the middle of your hairline and add the first pin
  • Continue to add the pins until you get the desired tightness
  • You may or may not use a brush but I personally don’t like to brush out the curls with this style.

MINIMODE Giveaway

I fell in love with the limited edition Sons + Daughters sunnies for MINIMODE. I have been searching for a quality pair of mirrored sunglasses for kids and came up empty-handed. I was baffled that they were nonexistent until a good friend of mine launched MINIMODE, an editorial shopping destination...
