The deep side part­ing

Glamour (South Africa) - - Beauty Hair -

If your hair is straight

Sec­ond-day hair is eas­ier to work with, ex­plains Jenny. But it can look greasy, so mist your roots with dry sham­poo. We love [1] Batiste Dry Sham­poo (R79.99). Get ex­tra body, as seen on Cara Delev­ingne, by back-comb­ing the pieces along your part­ing, adds Jenny.

If your hair is wavy

You want a clean, long part­ing to keep your hair look­ing pol­ished. To en­sure your tou­sled ends are frizz-free, ap­ply a heat pro­tec­tor be­fore you blowdry.

If your hair is curly

Part your hair while it’s still wet for max­i­mum stay­ing power. Post-shower, comb through a leave-in con­di­tioner and ap­ply a curl de­finer from root to tip. TRY [2] Hask Con­trolled Curls Hair Defin­ing Spray (R149.95). Let it airdry, or use a dif­fuser. Then, once dry, ap­ply a 50c-sized amount of defin­ing serum to ends to sep­a­rate your curls.

If your hair is in braids Box braids lend them­selves to a quick, pre­cise part­ing, but we like a dra­matic flip (the more hair on the one side, the bet­ter). Part your hair near the end of one eye­brow, and flip to the other side.

If your hair is short

As you blowdry, comb your hair the way that you want it to go. Work it up for more vol­ume, as seen on Lupita Nyong’o. Blast with cool air to lock in the style. Mist with hair­spray.

A state­ment part­ing is a solid move: clas­sic, e or­t­less and al­ways ap­pro­pri­ate. “It’s the sim­plest way to add drama,” says celebrity hair­styl­ist Jenny Cho. It re­quires only one thing: a rat-tail comb. Start by plac­ing it on your hair­line just atop the high­est point of your eye­brow (the most flat­ter­ing point), then part your hair along that line to­wards your crown.
