5 simple steps to create Kalki Koechlin’s Side-Swept Wave
1. The key to getting this look right is to prepare the hair whilst it’s still wet. It is essential to use good quality volumising products and hair oil. A simple styling mousse or oil treatment should do the trick.
2. Using a large round brush blow dry your hair. This will give it the necessary movement yet will ensure that the hair frame is in place.
3. Depending on what size curls you want to achieve, use small or medium curling tongs. Start from the ear downwards and from the front of the head on both sides. Depending on your hair length, work with four sections by curling one section of the hair clockwise and one anti-clockwise. Pin each curled section as you go along.
4. Remove the pins and delicately pull all the sections together. Do this very gently just by using your fingers.
5. To achieve the side sweep use a large paddle brush and firmly brush from the crown up and over left to right, avoiding the waves from the ear down by bringing them around the back of the neck and over gently by hand. For the necessary hold, use a medium strength hairspray. For the most secure style, allow the hair to settle for at least half an hour.
