Middle Part

Middle Part: A middle part is best-suited for both round and oblong face shapes.

While it helps to make a round face look longer and slimmer, it creates an illusion of roundness for oblong faces by sharpening the cheeks and the jawline, and makes them appear shorter in length.

A middle part for round or oblong faces works best with long, layered hair. The longer your layers, the better you'll look with a middle part!

Off-Center Part: An off-center part looks great on oval face shapes.

When it comes to experimenting with on-trend hairstyles, oval faces are simply the best. An off-center part lends an interesting appeal to an oval face; it helps to balance attention between the best features of your face and the uniqueness of your hairstyle.

Slightly off-center parts are in vogue this season. We've seen countless hairstyles with off-center part on the Fashion Week runways this year, including at the Alexander Wang and House of Holland Spring/Summer 2016 shows. You can pull off this hair part with medium-length to long hair of any texture.

Side Part: A side part is great for almost all face shapes, including round, oval, diamond and heart-shaped!

A side part helps to make an oval face look slightly elongated and create better visual symmetry. It lends an illusion of length to a round face and complements the high cheekbones of a diamond shaped face. You can also wear your hair with a deep side part to smooth out the pointiness of your heart-shaped face and soften up your features.

A side part is quite versatile and looks great with long, layered hairstyles, shorter chin-length bobs and even super-short pixies! Add color highlights to give your side part hairstyle a trendy appeal.

So, now that you know which hair part is best for your face shape, go ahead and try out a variety of hairstyles that'll make you go from looking good to drop dead gorgeous!
