How To Get Sandra Bullock Inspired Side Swept Hair

Sandra Bullock Hair

Real Style wanted to get to the bottom of one of the most coveted hair styles we’ve seen this award season. It’s Oscar winning hair, if you ask us. Sandra Bullock’s luscious locks played muse to our hair’s wildest dreams, and so we enlisted the help of Joey Marchese, a Schwarzkopf Professional Essential Looks Artist, to recreate it.

We asked Joey Marchese, who works out of Bob And Paige Salon in Toronto, how we could quickly style this look for ourselves at home, and in three simple steps he did just that. Rinse, wash and style your way to red carpet worthy locks that will look sexy on a date or a glamorous girl’s night out.

Follow Joey’s steps in order to recreate the look for yourself at home:

Tip 1

1. Prep Your Strands: “On wet hair, use a volumizing cream and round brush blow dry for a voluminous smooth finish.”

2. Set & Style: “Curl hair towards the face, using a strong hold hairspray to prep each section before curling. Pull hair over to one side, keeping it smooth so all the curls are together, and secure using bobby pins. 

Tip: “Make sure to criss-cross the bobby pins, creating an X to lock the pins into place.”

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Session Label Flexible Hold Spray, $20.50,

3. Finishing Touches: “Smooth curls with an anti-frizz serum of your choice to seal down flyaways and add tons of shine, then set your hair with a strong hold hairspray for a long lasting finish.”
