Partings have become a massive focal point for this season styles. Face shape is the biggest consideration when talking partings, but you also have to think about hair length, thickness and layers…
Whichever way you wear it, here are some tips and facts to the perfect parting straight from the Electric stylists.
Heart shaped faces
This face shape can have the best of both worlds! Having a centre parting is perfect for a longer face where as side is best to take attention away from a forehead.
A deep side parting is perfect for a rounder face as this will give the illusion of length.
Like a rounder face, a deep side parting will soften the jawline and create the illusion of more of an oval shape.
A deep side parting should be placed where your eyebrow arch is, any further can start to look like a comb-over…
Centre partings are perfect for creating asymmetric shapes if the hair is long. Try to steer clear of centre partings if you have a lot of layers – try to opt for an off-centre parting which is much more flattering.
For more of a boho feel to your hair, having a relaxed parting (which doesn’t look like you’ve been very precise with a comb) can not only give a more laid-back look but it’s also a great way to distract away from roots! Kate Moss wears this parting perfectly with natural looking waves for boho chic.
Side partings are perfect for longer faces as centre partings tend to accentuate the length and therefore side, whether near centre or deep side partings are more flattering.
Thinking of growing out your fringe? Go for an off centre or side parting to blend the growing layers into the length of your hair.
When going for a change, it’s always best to consult your stylist. Here at Electric, we offer complimentary consultations for style and colour. Book online here.
