Nothing screams glamour more than classic side waved hair. Yet this modern and effortlessly chic version of the hairstyle is so subdued that it can easly soften a tailored look or compliment a feminine dress that you have in your wardrobe.

This hairstyle was created by a team of Redken stylists, lead by Rodney Cutler, for the Carlos Miele fall 2012 runway show. It was created as a simple understated beauty look that was inspired by the designer’s Brazilian roots and western collection.

The modern and soft side waves would look perfect if you have mid to long hair as it can add more drama to the hairstyle. Since this hairstyle is very modern, you can wear this from day to night and still look effortless and chic.

Read on to know more about this quick and easy fall 2012 hairstyle that you can definitely do on your own.

How to: soft modern glamour side waves

Divide your hair into sections. Layer it with an ironing spray and a root lifting spray so you will be able to blow it out straight until it is completely dry, without damaging it but keeping plenty of volume. Remember to spread the products evenly on your hair for a better outcome.
Using a 1 inch curling iron, start curling sections of your hair. For better hold, you can spray each section with a working spray before you start curling (the team at Carlos Miele used Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray). You want to avoid ridges at the end of each curl so always continue right to the end with the wand.
Take each curl, wind it up and pin it to the head. Keep the curls pinned up for a few minutes to lock in their shape.
Let your hair down and brush it out a little bit to create soft, glamorous waves. Part your hair to the side, keeping the bigger section sweeping over one eye, to complete the look.
