Side part hairstyles are a staple look for a lot of men. It's a versatile 'do that works with all kinds of lengths and textures, including the super slick style and tousled, messy look featured above. Both styles are great go-to options with minimal styling time, but which one would you be more likely to wear?
Slick side part
For those of you who prefer your hair to be ultra-polished and completely under control at all times, a high-shine, slick side part is probably best. It's a classic look that can be achieved in just a couple of minutes, whether you're working with relatively short hair or more of a medium-length cut.
Starting with slightly damp hair, define a side part with a comb then smooth some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel throughout. You don't need much, roughly a quarter-sized amount, so start small and add more as needed.
Messy side part
If you take more of a laissez-faire approach to styling, a messy side part is probably a better fit. A sharply defined part gives the look some semblance of order without seeming too strict, and you can tame stubborn bed head tufts with a little product for any formal occasions.
Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum into dry hair after parting it on your favorite side. Arrange the hair as desired, using only your fingers to avoid compromising the texture.
