Side part hairstyles have been around for decades and continue to be a popular choice for both men and women. A side part's classic and timeless look is versatile and can be adapted to suit different hair types and face shapes. In this blog post, we will explore the different types of side part styles, how to create them, and recommend some products from Aveda for our Belt Salon customers.
Types of Side Part Styles:
Classic Side Part: The classic side part is a timeless look that never goes out of style. It involves a deep part on one side of the head, with the hair slicked back or to the side. This style works well for those with straight or wavy hair and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Messy Side Part: The messy side part is a more relaxed version of the classic side part. This style involves a loose and textured part, with the hair styled in a messy, tousled look. It works well for those with medium to long hair and is perfect for a casual day out or a night on the town.
Curly Side Part: The curly side part is a great option for those with naturally curly hair. This style involves a deep part on one side of the head, with the curls styled to one side. It can be dressed up or down and works well for both men and women.
Undercut Side Part: The undercut side part is a modern take on the classic side part. This style involves an undercut on one side of the head, with the hair on top styled in a deep side part. It works well for those with thick hair and can be styled in various ways.
Creating a Side Part:
Start with clean, dry hair: It is important to start with clean, dry hair to create a side part. This will ensure that the part stays in place and the hair is easy to style.
Find your natural part: Use a comb to find your natural part. This is the line where your hair naturally falls, and it can be different for everyone. Once you have found your natural part, use the comb to create a clean and precise line.
Style the hair: Once the part has been created, style the hair in the desired way. This can involve slicking the hair back to the side or creating a messy and textured look. Use products such as pomade, wax, or hairspray to help hold the style in place.
