The sexy over-the-shoulder hairstyle may look glam and complicated, but it’s super easy to achieve. Here’s how.

  1. Sweeping locks over one shoulder won’t work if your hair is parted in the middle. So, apply mousse to damp hair, part it on the side and blast until it’s completely dry.
  2. While you can wear this look straight, it works best with body and movement. Use velcro rollers for Hollywood bounce, a large barrel tong to create retro waves, or a hair straightener for sexy volume. If you have shorter hair, opt for a medium barrel tong.
  3. Use a couple of large bobby pins to pull the back section to one side and to encourage wayward strands to stay over the shoulder.
