Jesse Plemons: Wavy Side Swept Hairstyle With Side Part

4.0 4 Star

After some inspiration for those wavy medium-length strands? Over to actor Jess Plemons and his artfully-tousled side part style.

MFH says

Major props to actor Jesse Plemons for this wavy side swept hairstyle with side part. It’s giving windswept beach vibes, while still being smart enough to pair with the sharpest of tuxes.

The star of Love & Death, Killers of the Flower Moon and noughties classic Friday Night Lights (he’s also married to fellow actor Kirsten Dunst, FYI) gives a masterclass in how to lean into your hair’s natural wave.

Team it with some just-woke-up-like-this stubble and we’re talking clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. Hey, if you know, you know.

MFH sidenote: naturally blonde strands can be more porous than darker ones, not to mention vulnerable to dryness and damage. Do your hair a solid by using hydrating, strengthening and gentle products, as well as protecting it from heat and the sun.

  • Jesse Plemons’ wavy side swept hairstyle embraces his natural wave and medium length, so chat to your barber about the best approach for your own hair texture.
  • His haircut looks to be around collar length or slightly shorter at the back. The sides are just long enough to cover the tops of his ears.
  • More length has been left on top, which allows for flexibility and versatility when it comes to styling.
  • For this scissor cut, your barber may use a point-cutting technique. This adds texture and movement, while helping to balance out any bulk/weight in the hair.
  • Recreate Jesse Plemons’ wavy side swept hairstyle by using a comb to create a deep side part on gently-towel-dried hair. This look has a relaxed feel, so don’t worry about making the part too sharp and neat.
  • Use your hands to run a golf-ball-sized amount of volumising mousse or a few spritzes of sea salt spray through your hair. Go for a product with heat-protection properties if you’re blow drying.
  • Blow dry while using your hands – and a comb if needed – to sweep your hair over to the side. Direct and shape with that slightly tousled feel in mind.
  • Warm a pea-sized amount of styling product, like a matte-finish wax or clay, between your hands. Run it through your hair for a smart, textured finish.
  • Bonus TLC tips: regular trims, conditioning treatments and using products designed for your hair type (take our quiz here) can all help to ward off damage. Also avoid heat styling where possible, as well as rubbing your hair too hard with your towel.
