It seems celebs like going au naturel these days and I’m talking about their tresses. Gone are the days of elaborate updos and pageant hair – these days they prefer their hair to be simple yet statement making. The latest trend on the block is side-swept hair that ticks both of those boxes.

If you’re fearing this trend is elaborate and time consuming – fret not. It’s not rocket science – after all it’s just placing your hair on one side of your shoulder. Take inspiration from Esha Gupta whose styled her hair with big curls or go in for texture a la Blake Lively, who has added a braid in between her mane.

The key thing to remember here; is that your hair shouldn’t look limp. To ensure this you need a few tools such as hot rollers, hair spray and a few bob pins.
