Classy and elegant, yet just a little artsy and off-kilter, the side part is a timeless look. This spring, a chic and low side part is the must-have hairstyle. The shows set the tone – Derek Lam gave super-slicked-back side ponytails, while Vivienne Tam offered tousled, bed-head waves and Phillip Lim kept it straight yet messy. J. Mendel went for a heavily teased effect and Tibi achieved clean, shiny, and sweet. Whichever way you like it, the side part is the most wearable trend from the runways.
It’s also helpful for transition hair – side-swept bangs make it easy for those growing out the thick bangs of last season. While it’s easier to achieve with slightly longer locks, almost anyone can work a nice side part. Here to help, Taiwan Vogue’s hair experts break down a few easy styles to try at home.
