Comb in hand? Read along…!
1 || Center Part
A major hair trend recently, the super-precise center part is in fact considered classic, and gives off a clean, polished effect, however, not every face is a candidate for this style, preferably, you should aim for it when you have even features, symmetry is key! Anyone with uneven areas on their faces should avoid the center part as it can call attention to them, moreover, on long faces it can exaggerate the shape.
Works best for round faces, as it allows the hair to flow evenly on both sides of the face, elongating it. When wearing a middle part, you can have your hair flirty and loose in soft waves, or go for the high fashion look and slick down your hair with hairspray into a low ponytail.
2 || Side Part
Side parting your hair is your safest bet when in doubt, however, for most of us, we tend to favor one side over the other.. The beauty of this universal part is that about any face shape can pull it off, and it puts your very best brow on display. It’s a fun and relaxed way of playing around with your hair!
Mostly recommended for those with square face shapes or diamond face shapes, as it shows off the angles of your face.
3 || Off-Center Part
Sectioning your hair slightly off center would balance out any uneven features when you are someone who favors the mid center part.. This slightly off-ish part throws the eye off, so nothing looks out of balance, but gives off the illusion of a center part.
Works best with women who have a cowlick in the front, and it is also less severe than dividing hair in the middle.
4 || Extreme Side Part
This is a full-on red carpet look—you will notice that many celebrities tend to rock this sexy look at awards shows, and for good reason! With an extreme side part, most of your hair is off to one side, with your cheekbones taking center stage. Add in some curls or loose waves, and statement earrings, and you’ve got yourself a glam look perfect for a night on the town or a fancy dinner with friends.
The extreme side part is great for those with round faces as it elongates the face, as well as for those with heart-shaped faces, as it will soften up the angles of your cheekbones and widen your chin area.
5 || Bangs
Blunt bangs can certainly experiment with a side part, but naturally, the hair tends to fall in the center.
