Change of direction: In these variants, the side parting is making a comeback as a hairstyle trend in 2022...
Who would have thought that the simple question "side or center parting" could spark a veritable social media debate? It was hotly debated on TikTok last year, with Gen Z declaring the side parting to be out (just like the fashion trend around skinny jeans) and just a sign of being “old”. Admittedly, although it is of course primarily a question of taste, the hairstyle trends of the last few seasons have not proved Generation Z wrong – until now, because the side parting is currently experiencing a revival and shows how versatile and the hairstyle classic really is modern.
Unadventurous? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! The side parting is currently reinventing itself and is giving the middle parting a lot of competition for 2022. The hairstyle looks classy when pulled low, super edgy when combed back with gel, or extremely glamorous with large waves. In the following, we will show you the most beautiful styling variants that you will definitely make from the center parting to the side parting trailer - even if you belong to Gen Z.
Not a fan of elaborate styling? No problem! The side parting can also be worn unedited without any complication. The look is most casual with straight hair, but wavy or curly structures also flatter the side parting. A super simple and natural lightning hairstyle for when you need something quick. Our tip: Don't know which side to part your head on? The hair growth often already tells us, but if this is not the case, simply choose your chocolate side - this way it will come into its own.
A side parting that is pulled deep and combed tightly always looks elegant and very put together. This is seen at Saint Laurent, for example, where the hairstyle also comes with a subtle water wave effect, which further underlines the preppy character. A look with retro flair, which is also perfect for the office and looks extremely elegant even with shorter haircuts. You can also give the hairstyle a playful, romantic touch with hair clips.
Hairstyles that look practically “wet” provide the greatest possible coolness factor. The so-called wet hair look works best with side parting, among other things, and eliminates any doubts about the modern appeal of the hairstyle. Here's how it works: Part your hair on the side and apply plenty of gel to your hair. Then comb through. The look is particularly cool and edgy if you also work in texture, as with Valentino. In other words: do not brush the hair straight, but use a wide comb or your fingers to preserve the structure.
For a really big appearance, stars like to go for the opulent "Old Hollywood Glamour" look, which characteristically consists of a side parting and big waves. Few other hairstyles are as luxurious as the look associated with legendary film stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, or Grace Kelly. So it's no wonder that he can still be seen on the red carpets again and again today. For the hairstyle, you can either use large curlers or wide curling iron. Allow your hair to cool before gently brushing it through. Finally fix with lots of hairsprays, done!
