Hair Trend Spotting MTV Movie Awards Flipped Waves2

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards were filled with Red Carpet surprises, but some of the most talked about looks had more in common than expected.

Nicki Minaj, Jessica Alba, Rita Ora and Kate Upton were amongst the many who flipped their waves to one side. Creating svelte curls may seem difficult, but this trick will help you to easily score the look at home.

Nicki Minaj’s do was smooth at the roots, but a voluminous mane adds drama to the trend. Before drying hair, Jessica Alba’s stylist applied John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow- Out. The trick to creating the Old Hollywood curl is to begin with your hair parted down the middle. Divide locks into 1-inch sections curling each piece outward and away from your face.

Save the strands on the top left for last and curl them inward, towards your head. Finally, create a barely there part similar to Rita Ora’s, by flipping the hair on the right over with your fingers to the left. The motion reverses the curl pattern creating soft waves that frame the side of your face.

If you prefer your curls to fall in the opposite direction simply reverse the steps. To polish strands Kate Upton’s stylist smoothed on Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine.
