Party Perfect Hair: Side Sweep

Office Party Side-Sweep


Spritz dry shampoo (like Got2B Fat-Tastic, $6) all over your scalp to absorb oil and lift your roots.


Make a side part. With the end of a comb, part hair in line with the arch of your eyebrow.


Spritz strands with a light-hold hair spray (try Sebastian Professional Shaper, $17), then wind small sections around a curling rod (like the T3 SinglePass Whirl, $130).


Run your fingers through your hair a few times to turn tight curls into loose, softer waves.


On the smaller side of your part, gather the front section from hairline to part line. Pin it two inches backwith two crisscrossed bobby pins; then clip your glitzy accessory on top.
