Jagged parts, deep side or in the centre? Read on to find the perfect hair part for your face shape and style.
The Center Part
The middle parting is back in vogue. Once considered a relic from the flower children era, Cara Delevingne, Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow have given the middle parting a new standing in the fashion world. The middle parting is once again trendy. Unfortunately, the look does not suit everyone. With a middle parting your hair tends to frame the entire expanse of your face. Middle partings therefore make a round face appear even rounder. They’re also unhelpful if you like to hide some lines or wrinkles around the eyes and on your forehead. Wavy or curly hair looks great with a middle parting, while straight and thin hair tends to look stringy rather than sleek. In case of dyed hair, partings in the middle of the head draw particular attention to regrowth in a different colour.
The Flattering Side Parting
Side partings are flattering and work well for most women. The asymmetry compensates well for not entirely perfect facial features and small beauty flaws. Side partings make wide faces appear narrower and can even cover some lines. We recommend placing your side parting a little to the right or left from time to time or switch it to the opposite side. That will give your hair more bounce and the appearance of more volume.
Jagged/Zig Zag Parting
In the 1980s, zig-zag partings used to be exactly drawn. Such neatness appears old-fashioned these days. Undone looking meandering partings are the rage now. For a modern zig zag parting comb your hair back and hold it using the palm of one hand. Then use the handle of a teasing comb to draw a zig-zag line front to back. Now pull your hair to both sides and comb it down. You may like to apply some hair spray to hold the hair in place.
