The Easy And Right Way To Do A Deep Side Part
11 April 2018
If you’re anything like us, you constantly scour social media looking for the trendiest (and easiest) hairstyles to try. Middle parts have captured the hearts of our favorite beauty influencers and celebrity fashion icons. With photos of middle parts flooding the internet, it’s easy to forget about an insanely doable hairstyle that’s flattering on almost everyone: a deep side part.
A deep side part is no average side-swept bang, since it starts much farther to the side. Instead of allowing your hair to part naturally, you’ll create a deeper division starting about a half-inch to the side of where your hair naturally parts. Switching to a deep side part can instantly take your hairstyle from dull to dramatic, but what’s the best way to create the look?
We’re sounding off about the exact technique you need to know to create a deep side part the right way. We’ll even share some of our favorite styles that are trending right now.
Is a deep side part for everyone?
Hairstyles and cuts that flatter every hair type are few and far between. However, a deep side part benefits just about any type of hair by creating instant volume and body at the top of your head.
If you have thin or fine hair, opt for a deep side part to help create and maintain volume. We recommend using a volumizing spray such as the L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Root Spray to provide body and fullness to the hair from the root, for voluminous hold.
How do you style a deep side part?
Choose the right side to add the part.
Almost everyone has a so-called good side. Knowing which one it is doesn’t just come in handy for taking photos. Making the right decision about where to part your hair can highlight your facial features and make or break any style. If you’re unsure which side works best for you, consult with your stylist before making any changes to your ‘do.
Use the proper tools.
For a softer part, simply creating the line with your fingers should do the trick. However, a more defined part requires a bit more attention to detail. You may need to call in some of your trusted styling tools for help on this one.
To style a sharp part, start with damp hair and use a rat tail comb to form the part, flipping the bulk of your strands to one side. Use a blow dryer on a medium setting, aiming directly at the top of your head to hold the part in place and create definition. Tame flyaways and frizz by applying a small amount of smoothing serum such as Matrix Biolage SmoothProof Hair Serum.
Pick a style that shows off your part.
