Part refers to the division of the hair. Our hair tends to fall more to one side. To achieve this look, simply apply the product of your choice evenly throughout your hair. Create a part on one side of your head using a fine-toothed comb.

The side part is quite a distinct hairstyle that looks coy, clean and sassy. It’s a sharp, wearable do that is sure to look great in the office, formal events and even on the red carpet.
