This sleekly sophisticated hairstyle is excellent for daywear, and absolutely perfect for a formal evening event!
Side-swept hair which plays ‘peek-a-boo’ around the face – alternately revealing and concealing – is always a glamorous look. In this style, the hair below the side parting is gently swept away from the face revealing the model’s fine profile, a prettily decorated earlobe and the nape of the neck.
In a super-creative elaboration of the basic style, the hair is loosely braided along the back hairline in a diagonal French plait, which moves gracefully down to the opposite side.
The final piece de resistance of this elegant braided hairstyle is the unexpected fishtail braid, which adds a beautifully-judged contrast with the smooth fringe and loosely draped side profile!
