Part Play

For most of us, the great part debate begins and ends at the salon. We get a cut tailored to middle or side part styling, and we stick to it. Other than fixing a little bed head after a rough night’s sleep or maybe switching things up for a special event, we’re not thinking about parts much in the day-to-day. If fashion designers have their way, though, that’s all about to change.

As one of the easiest ways to change up your look mid-week, a little part play actually goes a long way. Unique takes on traditional parts zigzagged down Autumn/Winter 2016/2017 runways, and from deep and retro-inspired side parts, to slicked and center-parted bangs, the fashion crowd proved it’s time to stop thinking of your part as something you’re strictly tied to.

Instead, use your part much like an accessory, styling beauty looks with an unexpected creative edge. Braid a small part down the center, embellish a side part with a little shimmer or use a product like Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Styling Treatment Oil® to smooth and highlight a drastic differenceâ•Œeach quick fix kicks up the part-y, because every day is worth celebrating something, right?!
