Most of us have been parting our hair the same way, in the exact same spot, every day since probably high school…maybe even sooner. And that is totally fine. If it’s not broken then why fix it? But what if it needs fixed? It’s possible that the part that you’ve clinged to forever has been working against you. Well, you’re about to find it. Here are some tips to help you determine which part is the best way for you.
A Side Part for Fine Hair
The goal of every girl with fine hair is to create the illusion of a thick mane. A deep side part that goes against your hairs natural part (so it might time some training) is a great way to give your hair that illusion of thicker hair.
A Round Face Shape with Parting
These lucky ladies can rock both center and side parts. A center part is rarely recommended because it flattens hair and brings attention to facial asymmetries. However, a center part can help a round face shape look thinner. That being said, a deep part works wonderful with a round face shape because it will change the focal point on your face and result in the illusion of length. Use your cut and part to make your face look longer and thinner.
Center Parting for a Square Face Shape
Similar to round face shapes, a square face shape can rock a center part if they wish but to remember that a center part can make your hair look dull. Another great option for a square face shape is an off center part but not as dramatic as recommended for other face shapes.
Heart Face Shape
A heavy side part (bangs) is the best option for a heart-shaped face. This will cover up the wider forehead to create balance with the pointy chin. The heart-shaped face woman can also get away with a center part as long as it is paired with longer hair to create balance.
Long Face Shape suits a Side Part
Side parts are best for women with longer and narrower faces. The side-part will create the illusion that your face is wider than it is. For the best part for you, make sure your part line is above the arch of your eyebrow.
Most women don’t have perfectly symmetrical faces and consequently look best with a side part. The off-center part can instantly bring balance to imbalanced facial features. They are particularly flattering for women who have prominent chins or large foreheads. Of course, your part is just ‘part’ of what you have to consider when choosing the right look but it might be time to switch up your old reliable part for something more flattering.
