Now that you've got "old Hollywood glamour" out of your head, let's talk about the real inspiration for this side-swept hair look.

Remember when Alice Dellal fist debuted her half-shaved head? And then Kate Lanphear, Cassie, Mel B and a whole slew of other bold names gave it a go. It was sexy as hell and although I never picked up a razor and sheared off half of my hair, I totally wanted to.

Now with the help of Brad from Cutler, I’ve learned how to recreate the shaved-side look without sacrificing any hair. It’s insanely easy, I promise. And if you’re over asymmetrical shaves or never liked them in the first place, you can still file this style under Veronica Lake hair. I won’t tell Cat.
