Side-Swept Updo Trend

Trend Alert: Side-Swept Updos

You weren't so fond of Katherine Heigl's side-swept curls a few weeks ago, but lately I've seen side-swept hair everywhere. Side ponytails remain to be a trend, but why not jazz it up a bit? Sweeping the hair to the side or front in an updo creates a modern style that's interesting and elegant.

To get this look, curl all of your hair with a curling iron or hot rollers first. Use a medium-strength texturizing gel, such as Frederic Fekkai's Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel ($23), for hold without the crunch. For a straight and sleek option, use a smoothing cream like Bumble and bumble's Styling Lotion $(23). Pin back to the side and set with a light spray such as Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray ($28). For a healthy shine, complete either look with Ojon's Shine & Protect Glossing Mist ($28).

If it's good, it's gorgeous - don't like any of these three versions.

I can't get behind side ponytails because I am a child of the 80s... far too many pictures of me in neon, frills, and a pin-straight, glass-smooth, wispy fine hair side ponytail. There's a reason those are BURIED.

Still has me thinking "Half-man, Half-woman" ..I just can't get into that look.

If the first step to this look is curling all of your hair then why is Kate's hair straight? I don't like this look at all but I do love side ponytails and buns.

This is so not a new trend! I've seen it since I started noticing people's looks.

I hate this style for some reason, but I'm still loving the side ponytails.

I love how this looks somewhat punky/edgy and sophisticated at the same time. Now if only I had enough hair to recreate it =P.
