Learn how to give your hair style a makeover just by trying a different hair part.

Giving your hair a makeover doesn't mean that you have to chop off your locks or get a new hair color. Often, the simplest changes can make just as big an impact, and you can't get simpler than changing your hair part.

Going from a middle part to a side part (or vice versa) or trying a zigzag part could help you discover a look that breathes new life into your hair. To find out how to style these three popular parts, take a look at these easy styling steps.

Hair Part Essentials:

  • Always start with clean, well conditioned hair that is slightly damp.
  • Make sure your hair is tangle free by running a wide tooth comb from root to tip to remove any knots.
  • Use a tail comb to ensure your part is well defined.


Middle Hair Part

Model with red hair and middle part To create a middle hair part, get your comb, stand in front of the mirror and then find the middle of your nose. Place the corner of your comb at the middle of your nose and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even middle part. A middle part is a great way to make small, round face shapes appear longer and thinner.


Side Hair Part

A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.


Zigzag Hair Part

When you reach your crown, lift the comb up and then split your hair to each side, pulling it down to reveal your zigzag part.


With these three parts you can create a great range of looks.
