Short: Flicked/Sideswept: Section 1
Please choose a style to view from the small pictures.
The more extreme
version of this kind of style has had a resurgence in popularity due
to the prevalence of straightening irons because if you run your irons
along a portion of hair then turn them away it at the end a definite
flick is left in the hair. Curling tongs are probably needed to create
the very extreme flicks you can see here. The first curling tongs were
invented in the early 19th century and basically involved heating up a
metal rod until it was hot enough to slightly singe paper then wrap
hair around it, sounds pretty brutal to us. Tongs and irons and indeed
any heat related way of styling work by breaking little things in your
hair called hydrogen bonds which reform when the hair cools down but
in a slightly different place keeping the new shape secure.
This look is very easy to manage
but be careful not to over do it with tongs or irons or you may get split ends
or other damage. Hence it is extremely important to must take proper steps to condition the hair and maintain it in good shape.
The flicked or sideswept hairstyle will suit the faces of those individuals who have oval shaped faces or slightly long faces. It will not suit the round face people much. Hence the face type must also be considered before you think of selecting this hair cut.
