Side hairstyles are the latest trend on the red carpet and we can see why! Lucy Hale showed how the quick style change can make tousled waves look like a chic updo. Just pull one side of your hair back with a few bobby pins and spray with a light hold hairspray, such as Phyto Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hair Spray ($32,, to keep in place.

A casual way to work the side hairstyle is with a braid like Whitney Port’s. What sets this one apart from others is that it starts super loose on top but gets more and more structured as you move down the braid. Start with loose waves (maybe even tease a little!) and then braid halfway down the head.

The easiest way to get that sideswept look is with a deep side part like Jaime King’s. Because her hair is short, she didn’t have to pin any hair back. She just placed front strands behind her ear and gave the illusion of a side style. Styling tip: use a light dab of pomade, such as Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming Pomade ($18,, to keep hair behind ear. But use just a tad because you don’t want hair to look greasy.Sexy Short Celebrity Hairstyles

In our opinion, the side pony can never go out of style. Sparks turned this 80s trend 2012 appropriate by placing the ponytail directly underneath the left ear and softening with loose strands on the other side. To get that tousled look, use a texturizing spray, such as Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($25,, and scrunch with your fingers.

Nikki Reed was channeling Jessica Rabbit at The MTV Movie Awards with this side-swept updo. To get the look, create a side part and separate the strands you want to keep in front. Gather the rest of the hair and pin back in an updo or bun. Create that shine with a serum, such as Nexxus Pro-Mend Smoothing Shine Serum ($12.99,

Christina Milian
Two french braids can look a little childish, but pairing one with beachy waves like Christina Milian did is super sultry. To recreate, create a side par tand braid along your hairline, but stop at the nape of the neck. Hold hair in place with bobby pins. Let your locks fall to the side naturally. Use a sea salt spray, such as KMS California Hair Play Sea Salt Spray ($16,, to get a little movement.

Side-swept bangs make the side style even more dramatic. Isla Fisher paired her short bangs with a messy side braid to downplay her dress. Tame your flyaways with Ouidad Climate Control, Frizz & Flyaway Fighter Taming Spray ($22,

If you want to amp up your side pony, take a cue from Audrina Patridge. The TV personality french braided one side while leaving the strands on the other side loose, voluminous and then secured in a low pony. Use a root lifting spray, such as Living Proof Full Root Lifting Spray ($26,, to give locks on top that oomph.

10 Celeb-Inspired Hairstyles to Try This Spring

You always see celebs walk the red carpet with intricate updos. But what about hairstyles that could update your daily look? See 10 celebs sporting 10 springy hairstyles and tips from the pros on how to get each look!



Three words: EASY SEXY HAIR. Pay attention—this look can have you looking hotter than Rihanna’s trendy tousled waves at the Grammys. In less than half the time. Promise.

But you have to have at least a little natural wave to make it work.


Blowdryer with diffuser

Wide tooth comb

1-inch Iron

Pureology Illuminating Curl Stylist 24 Hour Shaping Lotion ($24 on

Pureology Colour Stylist Anti-Breakage Twist Shine Texturizer ($20.99 on

Pureology Colour Stylist Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray ($14.50 on


Start with hair fresh out of the shower. Do not dry with blowdryer or towel. Instead, blot the water out.

TIP: Coarse terrycloth towels can disrupt curl patterns. Try a microfiber towel for less frizz! Sleeping on a microfiber pillowcase will also keep curls better.

Section the hair into two or three horseshoe-shaped sections around your head. Starting at the nape of your neck, twist in a small amount of Pureology Colour Stylist Illuminating Curl Stylist 24 Hour Shaping Lotion (maybe a couple pearls per section). Wrap sections around one or two fingers, depending on how much wave you have. Next, diffuse hair with blow-dryer on low to medium force and heat. Do not separate the hair as it dries. Instead, cup the curls in the diffuser, holding the nozzle several inches off the scalp. Dry hair to 90%.

TIP: Over-drying hair is a frizz catastrophe! When in doubt, stop sooner rather than later and let hair air-dry the rest of the way.

Finally, apply a nickel-size amount of Pureology Colour Stylist Anti-Breakage Twist Shine Texturizer and work into hands. Run the defining cream through waves to break up curls and add shine. If needed, use the 1-inch iron by coil-wrapping around the barrel, holding the ends loose to keep the organic feel. This trick is great to polish unruly shorter layers or fringe!

Simple Summer Updos From Roy Teeluck

Hot temps and high humidity make it difficult to look elegant and effortless, particularly in the hair department. Roy Teeluck (of the eponymous Roy Teeluck Salon in New York and Miami) to the rescue with easy updos to get that hair out of your face and off your neck, and tips and tricks for the hautest hot-weather hair ever.

Sheckys: What’s an easy way to create an elegant updo this summer?

Roy Teeluck: Summer updos should be unfussy and unstructured. One of my favorite looks right now is a ballerina bun. Gather hair in a ponytail at nape of neck, securing with an elastic, then twist hair strands as you roll it into a bun. Secure with bobby pins. The bun shouldn’t be perfect; let a few loose ends stick out for added softness.  

S: What’s your go-to updo suggestion for a girl who doesn’t have a ton of time?

RT: For shorter hairstyles, take a dime size amount of L’Oreal Professionnel’s Or Graphic Golden Modelling Gelee*, smooth in palms, and distribute through hair to add texture and hold. Think of Ginnifer Goodwin’s punky short cut.

For longer hairstyles, a ponytail is always classic and chic. To keep it from looking too girly, gather hair at nape of neck in a loose ponytail, secure with elastic, and gather a few strands to wrap around elastic. Secure ends with bobby pins.

S: What are your top three hair product essentials for creating the perfect updo?

RT: L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium Hairspray for hold, L’Oreal Professionnel Smooth Essence Weightless Smoother to smooth the hair cuticle and bobby pins in a range of sizes. Use ones that most closely match your hair color.

S: Any summer hair tips to keep in mind during this heat?!

RT: Minimize use of styling tools such as blow dryers and flat irons. An excellent cut and the right product will allow you to make the most of your hair’s natural texture. Don’t fight it, work with it!

P.S.: Roy also loves L’Oreal Professionnel’s Liss Ultime line; created specifically to tame frizz. The Perfecting Serum is fantastic for addressing rebellious strands and adding shine. Rub a small dab in your palms and run through ends and lightly around hair line.
