How to Prada’s youthful side part hairstyle

Simple goes a long way in this hairstyle we saw on the Prada spring / summer 2014 show at Milan Fashion Week. The modern youthful glow is one that anyone can easily pull off.

Guido Palau created this hairstyle which – despite being simple and straight to the point – still looks stunning. He describes this hairstyle as “true Prada hair, in that the style is a bit school girlish, yet the overall look is quite strong”.
