The side parting is one of the main elements of this style. Westwick parts his hair from the left and this accentuates the slight lift or the semi-quiff on the opposite side. For a clean look, you will need to have the side hair cut shorter than the top hair. Hair on the back is also cut short.
As long as you have the right hair length and cut, you can style with ease. Apply volumizing mousse all over the hair and create the side parting with a comb. Then blow dry the quiff and maintain the shape by pushing the hair over the side and placing the nozzle directly in front of the flip to create a rise. You can apply wet look wax to create a sleek & shiny hairdo afterwards but be careful not to disrupt the shape you created.
