Here we share some inspo for how to deep side-part hair, as well as share some tips and tricks for creating a style that looks good on everyone, no matter their hair length or texture.

Figuly shares her tips for creating a side part: 

“When blow drying, I like to take the mohawk section from both sides and over direct it forwards to get a nice swoop effect, so the side part really shows off,” she says.

“I personally think side parts make the face look softer and more youthful. It’s not as bold, and it’s a natural look. Most people have a natural side part. I say don’t fight it – Go with it.”
