Side hairstyles are trending on the red carpet, and we can see why. Hairstylist Jenny Cho created this look by winding each section of Amanda’s hair around the barrel of a large curling iron. After all the hair was curled, she misted a paddle brush with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Hairspray ($2.89, target.com) and brushed over the gorgeous waves to break them up and give a softer look.

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, Drugstore.com), to keep hair behind ear. But use just a tad because you don’t want hair to look greasy.
