Now, it’s time to check out the best center-parted hair – find your length and check it out!
Although center parts usually get a rep for being more bohemian looking, this isn’t always the case. Maria Menonous shows us here how sophisticated a center part can look with some high volume waves added to the rest of the hair. This hairstyle has been created by first setting the hair in large rollers to get those gorgeous bouncy waves, then backcombing the roots all over to add volume throughout. For the finishing touch, create a sharp center part from the front to the middle of the head, and then backcomb the roots a bit more and flip the rest of the hair back for a Sixties-inspired bouffant effect.
This season, subtly waved bobs are all the rage and a center part is the perfect way to style it up. Adrienne Bailon looks chic in a center part here—it works well with her oval face shape and blunt haircut. Although her loose waves are bang on trend, this hairstyle would looks just as fabulous worn sleek and straight with a sharp center part too. For a more casual look, Adrienne could leave her part intact and pull the rest of her hair into a low ponytail or bun for a trendy variation.
Ciara has the center part look perfected here on her short bob. Her chin-length bob looks fantastic with her center part and really shows off the angles of the cut. Ciara looks fabulous and is rocking her center part with ease, however ladies who don’t like obvious roots may want to go for a jagged center part instead of a straight one to help camouflage root re-growth.
