Use This Trick to Achieve the Perfect Side Part

Use This Trick to Achieve the Perfect Side Part

BY Jen Atkin

I think the trending of parting hair in the center is making its way out, and the side part is coming back. I always get asked where should part their hair when side parting. It seems simple, but to have it look chic, there is a trick to it. I always tell my clients to line their part with the arch of their eyebrow. It’s best if you can use a rat-tail comb to set your part, so it’s clean. Just use the arch of your brow as your guide. With a side part, you can rock a variety of looks, from old Hollywood waves to a modern, undone look.
