For a lot of guys, simple, well-groomed hairstyles are the best, just like this side part style. It's a style that incorporates both fun and formality, making it one of the most versatile looks out there.
Hairstyles that are short on the sides but which retain a lot of length on top are not so much a trend as a staple. It's a very popular style and one that can be hard to make your own. At the same time, it's all down to you how much volume and texture you work up on top and in the front, allowing your plenty of room to move or even play with.
To get the look, there are just a couple of really easy styling tricks you need to know about.
Begin by warming some fixing putty between your fingers and then working it through all of your hair, paying special attention to the roots.
Use a comb – ideally a tail comb – to define a side part and then comb the larger section over.
To add the all-important volume, use your fingers to scrunch and muss your hair at the roots. Then, use the comb to gently smooth over the top layer without crushing the lifted parts.
And you're done!
Top tip: Add extra volume to your hair with some volume mousse and a quick blow-dry.
Now all you have to do is get out there and enjoy your new style that can be worn with anything from a tux to overalls. Like we said, it's an especially versatile look!
