Centre parting
 

Centre parting

The centre or middle parting is one of the most common parting looks, probably because it is one of the easiest and quickest ways to part your hair. But is it suitable for all face shapes? Let’s find out. Parting hair at the centre gives your face an elongated look, therefore it is perfect for those who have a round face shape. Allow your hair to flow evenly and loosely on both sides in soft waves. To get the perfect middle parting, place the comb right at the centre of your brows to separate the hair and get that defined look.

Side parting

Side parting accentuates the angles of your face making it look more defined. This hair parting type suits women who have square or diamond face shape. It gives the effortless, girl-next-door vibes and is preferred by a lot of women. This type is more casual and does not require precision, so you can do it without a comb and mirror. Use your fingers to create a quick casual parting at the side, a perfect ‘I woke up like this’ look.
