Switch up your parting

hair style partings


Deep partings were all over the catwalks for AW, taking the place of the classic middle partings being the go-to for a few reasons. Switching up your parting can change the way your hair looks with minimal effort and perfect for those who don’t want to go for the chop to switch up their look.

Parting Styles

The Middle Parting: This suits oval and heart shaped faced really well and adds a bit of length to the face.
The Simple Side Parting: One for those who weren’t blessed with totally symmetrical, proportioned features, a slightly off-centre parting can be a more flattering.
The Deep side Parting: This works really well for those who have fringes or short hair cuts (think The Frankie hairstyle) Just make sure your hair doesn’t end up in your eyes!


I wear my hair parted in two ways - Either a messy centre part or a side parting. My natural parting is very roughly in the middle, the straight middle doesn’t really work too well with my bedhead boho style.I often flip my hair over to extreme side parts to fake a fringe or keep it simple with a slight off centre part. Each makes my hair look slightly different but changing the part was so easy to do!

  4. you're so lucky, all three of those partings look cute on you! i can't wear my hair in any way other than a side parting. if i part my hair in the middle, i end up looking like a bloodhound. and it's not a good look.. haha x

  6. The first and third one suits you perfectly! I used to have a side parting, but for the past months I prefer the middle parting for a change! Changing partings makes a huge difference!

  14. I'm very jealous about your middle parting. I love middles but it just doesn't work with my short(growing out) fringe at the moment... x

  20. You look great with all three! I love a middle parting but find side ones are sometimes easier, especially for work.

  24. I'm forever changing up my parting because I have a full fringe cut in but sometimes don't feel like styling it or just want to go for a different look. All three look great on you though :)

  26. I think my hair naturally does a middle parting which I've had alllll my life. I recently opted for the simple side parting and it's been bugging me a lot, especially during windy and rainy days. Looking back at old photos, I have the urge to just go back to having a middle parting but I'm not entirely sure yet.

  27. I wish I could do that with my hair, I always have it in a side parting. my hair is so stubborn, if I want to change my parting I get weird strings of hair sticking out or my hair just hangs in my face like a curtain..
