and struggling to come up with some new styling ideas? Ever thought about giving side hair a go? This on-trend, elegant style isn’t just for women with long hair! Short haired girls can work this catwalk-worthy look too! Side hair
looks sublime paired with the bob. ‘This asymmetric effect works just as well with long hair as it does with short.
