Although the infamous British model has dominated the media recently due to her break-up with actress Michelle Rodriquez, Cara Delevigne's striking good looks grabbed headlines.

Cara's hair length, color, and style along with her make-up, and striking good looks have long been a popular topic in the fashion trades.

Cara was recently spotted in an interesting series of photos with Selena Gomez who is famous for her own amazing hairstyles.

The iconic catwalk has been known to pioneer new hair trends including the currently hot candy-colored strands along with undercut styles.

Whether you care about Cara's intriguing personal life or not (who cares if she and Selena are getting close?), if you love stunning hair, Cara Delevingen's hair should be on your radar.

Center-Parted Long Blonde Ash Hair

When Cara arrived at Harper's Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards ceremony in 2011 she turned heads with her stunning center-parted ash-blonde tresses with a light sprinkling of texture throughout the middle and ends.

The ends were darker along with the roots, creating an interesting version of the popular Ombre multi-hued look.

Cara is stunningly beautiful and has spectacular dark brows which are perfectly arched to highlight her striking eyes.

Hair Extensions?

Was Cara wearing extensions at the Harper's Women of the Year event?

Maybe she was.  If so, they were so expertly installed there wasn't a hint of an attachment seam or tell-tale connection.

I would've guessed her hair is all hers without add-on strands.

Am I wrong?  Who cares, her hair was a masterpiece of sassy elegance.

Cara Delevingne's Side-Swept Waves

Two years later in 2014, the stunning model morphed into a sexier look.

She stepped out with her long caramel enhanced strands worn over to one side in a gorgeous sweep of waves and loose curls.

Rocking her trademark brows, she created a completely different Red Carpet statement.

When the classy Cara turned to the other side, she showcased flat braids.  Her hair was a stunning combination of tight side braids and high-octane dramatic Hollywood-style waves.

What can you say, but wow?

Cara's old Hollywood glamour, side-swept waves may have looked familiar.

Maybe because the beauty wore a similar hairstyle at the 2013 Met Ball Gala in New York.

Cara Delevingne Ballet Buns

I personally love Cara Delevingne's hair coiffed into an array of center-parted or side-swept long loose tresses, but the model also loves edgy ponytails alternated with sweet ballet buns.

The reality? Cara looks good in any hairstyle, especially when the tresses allow her to show off those gorgeous eyebrows, eyes, and lips.

How To Copy Cara Delevingne's Side-Swept Waves

Cara's side-swept wavy hairstyle works best for hair that is shoulder length or longer, is naturally straight, or able to be softened into loose waves.

Optionally you can add the side flat braid or just clip one side back from the face in order to direct all of the rest of the hair to one side.

It’s important to have the side-swept fringe in order to create the full sweep of peek-a-boo hair.

1.  Cleanse detangled, pre-treated hair in lukewarm water.

Use hair products and cleansing methodology most compatible with your hair type, texture, length, and current condition.

2.  Rinse well.

Apply rinse-out conditioner and detangle in the shower with fingers or a wide-tooth comb.  Rinse well and finish with a cool or cold water rinse.

3.  Towel blot.

Use a hair-friendly microfiber or similar towel which protects wet strands.    Be sure to remove all excess moisture.

Prepare Hair For Styling

4.  Apply desired styling cocktail.

This may include, but not be limited to, a leave-in conditioner, defrisant, and/or curl or wave enhancing cream.  Spray a volumizing spray onto the towel-blotted damp tresses.  Add a root lift for extra oomph.

5.  Separate hair into 8 equal horizontal sections.

Use a long tail comb to create equal horizontal sections.

6.  Use a large round boar bristle brush, blow hair out using a hairdryer to create volume.

Be sure to finish the blow drying process with a blast of cool to cold air.

7.  When hair is 100% dry separate hair into 2-inch sections.

Work from side to side creating the sections.

Iron And Finish

8.  Curl individual sections with a 1 ½ inch curling iron, creating a spiral effect.

If you prefer use a 2-inch curling iron if you have one available.

9.  After each section is curled re-roll the curls and pin to the scalp to allow hair to dry and set.

All finger-rolled curls to dry and set until you're ready to leave the house.

10.  Over-direct the side-swept fringe to create a sleek, smooth, flat finish.

If necessary spritz a fine stream of mist over the fringe, blow again, and iron until you achieve desired smoothness.

11.  Unpin the curls and use a boar bristle paddle brush to deconstruct curls.

If you prefer to keep the curls and waves tighter, use fingers to pick and arrange.

12. Finish with a flexible hold hairspray.

If you prefer use a drop of leave-in shine serum and apply to the palms of your hands.  Massage palms together and swipe over the top of your finished look.

Daily Hair Tip
A good volumizing trick is to mix equal parts of hair mousse and gel together and then paint sparingly on the roots of your hair before blow drying with a make-up brush.
