As the warm summer breeze rapidly morphs into autumn’s crisp air in the northern hemisphere, the side part hairstyle gets a subtle makeover, as to better complement the feel of the new season. Marking one of the most distinguished fall 2013 hair trends, the deep side part forgets all about the sleek, focusing on texture from the crown and polished ends instead.

Fearless but effortless-looking, slightly undone and leaving just enough place for interpretation, the textured side part look is perfect for both a day spent running errands around town, and for a fabulous night out.

Backstage at Tracy Reese Fall 2013, TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu took inspiration from “a fearless New York girl” in order to complement the sexy silhouettes and rich textures featured in the collection.

Read on after the break for details on how to create this side-swept textured hairstyle.

Begin by applying a volumizing mousse and a heat tamer spray throughout the roots and lengths of the lightly dampen hair. These will work in creating both texture and volume.
With your hair upside-down, proceed in rough drying it with your fingers until the hair is 90% dry. As you continue drying upside-down, use a brush to lift the roots making sure not to smooth them, as this will result in the flattening of the texture.

Once your hair is dry, flip your hair over and begin creating a “front sweep” by lightly brushing the hair from the front of the crown over to one side diagonally.
By randomly pinning a mix of black bobby pins at the temple, proceed with securing the the side-sweep in place.

If you care for more volume at the top, tease the crown of the head for lift and apply a finishing spray. Jeany Syfu used the TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.
Finish off the look by applying a dry shampoo for extra texture. For an undone, softer result, pull out pieces of your hair.
