We love a good vamp, especially the Old Hollywood kind. During the hype of the Film Noir era of the ‘40s and ‘50s, femme fatale dominated the silver screen. The tailored dresses, the bold lip, the seductive come-hither look. Hair-wise, you can channel your inner femme fatale with a deep side part and a Veronica Lake-inspired wave cascade. An easy way to add asymmetry, this timeless style gives sophistication and class –– with minimal effort. A deep part is flattering on all face shapes, and leaves lots of hair to play with on the long side. As seen in the collage above, today’s bad girls are flaunting their own versions of Veronica’s glamorous look. You can too. For tips on creating the deep sweep, click style notes.

The short sides help to elevate features like cheekbones and eyes, while the long, floppy top gives disheveled elegance, beatnik spirit.
