Straight ahead

Choosing the right parting for you

MIDDLE PART - Why and how: The signature style of ’70s beauties, like Joni Mitchell, this straight-down-the-center look is a chic option for any occasion or face shape. It’s a classic ! For the most precise part with less risk of snagging, use the tip of a rattail comb to divide hair. (This applies for most of these looks, unless otherwise directed.) If you try to part hair using the comb’s teeth, you'll encounter more tangles

DIAGONAL PART -Why and how: For this effect, which adds polish to a chignon and slims a wide face, divide hair from above the outer corner of one brow to the back of the crown on the opposite side. Slick hair back into a bun or a ponytail.

Choosing the right parting for you

DEEP SIDE PART - Why and how: Cousin to the side part but far more dramatic (think day versus night), a deep division is a natural volumizer for hair of any kind, since more hair on one side equals more body by definition. If your face is slightly round, allow the side with extra hair to fall slightly across your face, as shown.

THE ZIG ZAG PART - Why and how: A jagged line is fun and casual and flatters any face shape. Better yet, it's a great way to camouflage overgrown roots. Highlights and color are generally applied to hair that's parted in the middle or slightly to the side, so obscuring the part can obscure the line of demarcation. Use fingers to move narrow sections of hair to either side until a zigzag forms.

SIDE PART - Why and how: Almost everyone has hair that falls slightly to one side or the other naturally,so this look complements most, regardless of face shape.For a casual feel, use your fingers to part your hair rather than a comb. Another side benefit: Switching your part from one side to the other can mask thinning.
