Why wear your hair on both sides when you can have a thick tumble of waves worn on one?

Eva Green looked sleek and chic with her side waves at the premier of Dark Shadows this week while Kate Moss has been toying with tousled hair piled on one side during her latest shoot for Vogue. 

Meanwhile The Met Ball had a bevvy of side wave converts proving it really is the style to toy with right about now. The best thing about it? It's so easy to do! 

Lamia Diani, a senior stylist at Paul Edmonds  explains: “Curl the hair from mid length to the end. Take 6 big sections for curling and then sweep from one side to the other creating a strong side parting and use a few pins to hold it in place.

"Try using Shu Uemura Shape Paste to smooth frizz and give hair texture. Then spritz on some L’Oreal Elnett to keep it all in place."
