Once again, the side parting has emerged from the relic box. In recent seasons, middle partings dominated the scene on catwalks all over the globe. Now, designers have rediscovered the side parting for the winter 2011/2012 season. Models increasingly showcase side partings. Today, the partings are mostly very exacting and created far down on one side. Side partings do not lose their newly found glory in the 2012 summer fashion either. On the red carpet stars and models embrace the new trend with very appealing hair styles from gel-sleeked to bouncy hair and glamorous waves.
Is the Side Parting Your Style?
Side partings look appealing with short and long hair alike. The facial features do not play a role at all. However, small faces may appear even smaller when side partings are combined with long open fringes. (It is alright to pull the fringes to the side.) Side partings take the focus away from the centre of the face and are therefore ideal for faces with prominent noses or chins. Square-shaped faces seem smaller when the hair is parted on the side.
How to Part Your Hair on the Side
The tail ends of styling combs come in handy for creating exacting side partings. We recommend a conditioning rinse or treatment before styling. Parting soft, easy flowing hair is particularly easy.
