How To Rock An '80s Swoop

As much as we love taking a walk down memory lane, let's be real. When we waved farewell to our awkward years sometime between middle and high school, we said good-bye for good. But, try as we might to deny it, our awkward stage is back — and this time it has manifested itself in our hair. Our grown-out 'dos land somewhere between chin grazing and mermaid worthy, and to be honest, we're often at a bit of a loss in the styling department.
So, in an effort to go from feeling slightly awkward to totally awesome, we looked to the arguably least awkward person around for a little inspiration: supermodel and unofficial ambassador of all things chic, Daria Werbowy. Can hair-pro Michael Dueñas transform assistant beauty editor Tara's in-between style into a Daria-approved faux swoop? See for yourself above.
