Forget the bold bangs and side parts of past seasons, middle parts have had a huge presence in Hollywood and on this year’s runways.
Celebrities from the Kardashians to the Olsen Twins have consistently sported the middle part, however, the style can be difficult to pull off. I myself sported a middle part until the age of 14 when I came to the realization I looked like the actor Barry Watson of 7th Heaven.
A middle hair part is currently bolder than a side part and can instantly update your look for fall. With a few tricks this fresh style can be worn by any one.
Do: Keep locks soft and away from the face. Try slight waves or curling hair with a large barrel curling iron for a more polished look.
Don’t: Keep your hair completely straight. The look is rarely flattering unless you have the face of Coco Rocha. You could also end up looking like a hippie or a guest star on That 70’s show.
Do: Part your hair slightly off-center. If you’re not ready to try a dead center part try parting hair slightly off to the side. An off-center part is more flattering for all face shapes.
Don’t: Slick your hair back with spray or gel. The look can be extreme. If you don’t want to deal with loose strand, you’re better off parting your hair down the center accompanied by a loose bun.
Do: Pair your new center part with an oversized bag! Follow Kim’s lead.
Hopefully, you too will take part in this trend. (No pun intended).
