5 Different Ways to Part Hair

Side Part

Making a side part is relatively easy. Start by positioning the comb at the top of your eyebrow and moving it gradually backward before combing through your hair to form an even part. Add some hair oil for baby hairs to help prevent future missteps.

A classic side part can be worn both casually and for formal events. This look looks incredibly glam when combined with a sleek back ponytail or bun.

Changing your look to include side parting may seem challenging if your locks are straight or center-parted, but try adding some control cream over time; eventually, your hair should remember how to stay that way!

Middle Part

The center part is an iconic style that works with every face shape and hair length. Achieve a sleek middle part by blow-drying your hair using smoothing serum or pomade to add texture and create a clean line.

If a straight-down-the-middle part is too extreme for your tastes, try switching it up with a diagonal option that begins further back on one side than the other. This still creates the same look of a center part while being easier to manage for acceptable hair types.

Back Part

Try the zigzag look to add something different to your back hair part. Detangle and brush back your locks, then use a rat tail comb to mark a point at the inner corner of one eyebrow before moving diagonally upwards through your hair until reaching your crown.

This hairstyle offers both slimming and volumizing effects in front and works well with any haircut style. It can hide prominent jawlines while helping balance more narrow facial structures.

Finger Part

Not to be mistaken with a ponytail, the finger part adds modernity to any look and naturally slims your face while playing down prominent jawlines. For optimal results, complete this style on freshly washed locks and use smoothing serum to keep it in place all day.

For an effortless finger part, shift your normal side or center part slightly out of its usual spot and work zigzag patterns with your rat tail comb. Consider applying gel or pomade to finger-coiled sections for added volume and texture.
