Get the Look: Sarah Hyland’s Glam Side-Swept Hairstyle

Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland rocked one of the most stunning side-swept hairstyles we’ve seen in a while on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere red carpet in L.A. earlier this week. Not only an elegant formal hairstyle, this is a great choice for wedding hairstyles if you’re opting for a romantic dress and pretty makeup.

Here’s how celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman created the look in just a few easy steps.

1. On damp hair, generously apply Living Proof Prime Style Extender to lock in your style. Blow dry hair straight, section by section.

2. Set a heavy side part to your desired side. Using a 1″ barrel curling iron, curl each section in the same direction.

3. When finished, gently brush out your curl into a uniformed wave.

4. Spray with Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode Hairspray or your favourite hairspray for lasting hold.

5. To complete the look, use a bobby pin to secure the hair behind one ear.

Get The Look: 1920s Waves Like Christina Hendricks’ Emmys Hair

Need wedding hair inspiration whether you’re the bride or a guest? We think these flapper-inspired, 1920s waves, like Christina Hendricks showed off at last month’s Emmys, are the perfect elegant hairstyle for medium to long hair. Simply pair with a feminine dress, antique jewellery and a vampish red lip.

We asked celebrity hairstylist Dario Cotroneo to share his how-to to recreate this gorgeous hairstyle in just 4 easy steps.

1. Section a side part from the hairline to the crown area. Then section hair at the back of head into three even sections.

2. Begin each section in the back area by backcombing the roots and spray with Thermal Image from Wella. Place the hair under the MYCURL and roll up horizontally. Starting from the mid lengths area, secure the first strap then continue rolling the MYCURL to the roots and secure the second strap. Then clamp the irons over the MYCURL for 15seconds. Repeat for the other two back sections.

3. Divide the front sections into two sections on both side of the face, roll in two Large MYCURLs on both side sections away from the face without the backcombing, spray with Thermal Image from Wella and roll a Large MYCURL into the hair horizontally from the mid lengths and secure with straps around the cheekbone area. Then clamp irons over the MYCURL for 15 seconds. Allow hair to cool down for 20 minutes.

4. After hair has cooled, remove all MYCURLs and lightly brush hair forward from the mid-lengths to ends in order to separate the curls, and then spray some shine spray for a glossy finish. To keep your style looking polished and groomed, around the face and on the top layer, spray hairspray onto a makeup brush and brush around the parting and around the face.
