Read on to find out more:
The middle part
The middle part is certainly the most popular hair parting style that got into fashion just a few years back. It is the quickest as well as the easiest way of parting your hair and get a great new look! If you have a round face, then this hair parting style is right for you as it allows the hair to easily flow evenly on both the sides of your face which in turn helps to elongate your face. If you decide to put on the middle hair part, you should have your hair flirty, loose and in soft waves.
How to do it
To create a perfect middle part, just position your comb right at the center of your brows in the middle of your face, then run the comb backward to separate your hair. In case you have a lot of baby hairs, just ensure you separate them at the front of your face as this will really help to define your part.
The side part
The side part is preferred by a lot of women. It certainly is a good hair part that you could try on. It actually gives the wearer a feeling of the ‘girl next door.’ If you have a square face or a diamond shaped face, it can really help to reveal your face angles.
How to do it
You need to place the comb at the center of your eyebrow and then run it back. This will easily create the side part. The advantage of the side part is that you can do it quite easily even with your fingers if you are going for just a casual look and not going for anything official.
If you have got bangs, better blow dry them first with a brush preferably a round one to give volume before your toss them to the side. If you don’t have bangs then its better to choose keeping your hair loose.
Extreme side part
This is the perfect hair part for the red carpet events and if you are keen enough then you may have noticed many celebrities wearing it on many occasions. With this hair part, lots of your hair will go off to one side and your cheekbones will take the center stage. You can add some curls or even loose weaves and those elegant earrings with this extreme side part. This hair part will let you stand out in those events where you certainly want to look dominant.
You can put on this hair part if you have a round face because it helps to elongate the face. Even those with heart-shaped faces can really find this hair part great as it helps to lessen up the angles of the cheekbones thus widening the chin area.
How to do it
If you want to create a good extreme side hair part, place your comb just at the end of your eyebrow, and then run it backward. It is expected that the hair around your face will fall back with this style. To make a perfect extreme side part you can take some little hair oil and then apply that to areas that need some little bit of clean up.
The dramatic side part
Because most deep side parts usually go against your hair’s natural part, they’d be a great way to make your hair look thicker hair. You can do this by styling slightly damp hair into a deep part using a fine-tooth comb. You can then secure this in the back maybe as a low bun or simple chignon.
More subtle ways to part your hair:
Look for your cowlick
Take a look at the back of your head and get where your hair forms a spiral just in the direction of your hair growth. You should put your part on the left if your cowlick spins in the clockwise direction. If your cowlick goes anticlockwise you’d better go with the right hair part.
Create facial symmetry
Basically most faces are not usually perfectly symmetrical so it is best for you to find which side of your face i.e. your eye, ears or nose appear smaller then part your hair to same side.
You can go natural
You could alternatively do trials with various parts and you will eventually find the hair part that best fits your head.
