How to Rock a Middle Part

April 8, 2011
Oh the middle part.
We have a love/hate relationship.  Mostly love though.  Honestly, the middle part isn't for everyone, but if it's done right it can be extremely pretty and flattering.  So here are a few tips to help you rock your middle part-

Tip #1. If you have bangs, I recommend growing them to at least the bottom of your eye before you try a middle part.  Once they've grown out a little, round brush them slightly so the ends curl back into your hair. This will cause your bangs to brush your cheek bones slightly, accentuating them.

Tips #2. You don't have to part it exactly in the middle, perfectly straight, and all the way to the back of your head.  The might look good on the runway, but I know I can't pull that look off.
Instead try parting it a little uneven.  Use your finger to part it instead of a comb, or flip it upside down and dry it without a part, letting it fall naturally when it's dry.

Tip #3. If you're going to wear it straight, a middle part will look sleek and slimming IF your layers are soft and long (not short and choppy).

Tip #4. If you're going to wear it wavy, softly curl it away from your face, starting the wave at eye level or lower.   

Happy middle parting!

    Haha...I really want the middle part to come back outside of the television :\
    I am not a fan of the...overly to the side part (which ends up looking a bit comeover-y)

  2. i dont like the side part bc u have to just fix it all the time i just like parting it down the middle and letting it be:)

  3. i want to know if the persons who have round face are good to them to wear the hair in the middle part?

  4. I love the look of a center part!

  5. i have a middle part in my butt crack.

  6. wao nice info sharing :) u also like this............:)

  7. Hi! I want to know, when doing a center part, how to get the sides to smooth down yet leave a nice voluminous top/back like the young kardashian sisters (I think this is them?) like in this picture:

    I have around face and head, so to make height at the top and slimmer at the sides would make my life sooo much easier lol
