The Side Sweep: This look is the most uncomplicated of the bunch and it works for all hair types and most lengths (Our model has thick, curly hair and it worked for her). All you need is a little hairspray, water, and patterned bobby pins.
Step 1: Start by parting your hair to the side. If you have extra-thick or curly hair, use hair pins to secure hair at the back of your head.
Step 2: Slick the side back by spraying your hair with water and combing through to create a flat surface. Then, spray the section with non-flaking hairspray (like Aveda Air Control) and comb through (the water keeps the hairspray from flaking). Repeat until your hair is slick. Wait for it to dry, or blow-dry, and don't forget to secure the section in back using a few bobby pins.
