Everyone wants to jazz up their look every so often, but not everyone can afford to go to the salon every other month for a new haircut or color. In addition, neither of these are recommended for your hair on a regular basis as it can expose your locks to damage easily. One trick that expert stylists recommend is to change the parting of your hair. This is an easy and affordable way to reinvent your hairstyle and change your hair’s growth pattern. If you haven’t tried experimenting with different parts before, you have come to the right place.
Below are some of the parting techniques that you can try and experiment with:
Zigzag Part: This is one of the most widely used parting techniques in modern hairstyles, particularly ponytails or pig tails. This is also recommended for those who wanted to give some oomph into their day-to-day style, as well as those hairs that are dense on the scalp.
It is easy to do the zigzag part and you have to start by creating a straight line. Take out a wide-toothed comb to form a triangle on one side of the hair line. Then, comb the hair back again across that straight line. Repeat the process until you have formed the zigzag pattern. You can choose the depth and size of each pattern based on the hair’s density and the specific style you are going for.
Diagonal Part: This particular hair parting technique is a good way to infuse some glamour and sophisticated vibe into your look. It is done in order to bring forth volume towards one side of your hair over the other, which is common with side-swept styles.
Curved Part: This is one of the easiest hair parting techniques to pull off and one that creates quite an impact to your style. Form your hair part in a rounded curve in order to create some symmetry while also bringing more volume into your hair. This type of parting is recommended for updo hairstyles in order to create more foundation from which your hairstyle will be anchored in.
Crisscross Part: This is a bit similar to the zigzag pattern but with some slight variations, which makes it ideal for those looking to mask thin hair. Follow the same steps as the zigzag pattern but this time out pull the triangle sections to the other side so you end up with a braided or woven look to your hair.
