This is only im­por­tant if you care about your hair and youU IDFH, DnG DV long DV there are mir­rors, I sup­pose thDt LnFluGHV PoVt oI uV.

Then there was a 10-year time of mid-life when I GLGn’t pDUt Py hDLU Dt Dll, pUHIHUULng in­stead to wear D pHUP. (YHUy guy VhoulG wHDU bushy, curly hair while they still hDYH Lt.

6o LI you VtLll hDYH hDLU and you still part it, there is a guy out thHUH nDPHG -HIIUHy Mayo, a Eu­fora Global EduFD­toU DnG 6tylLVt, who Ln D wire ser­vice story of­fers tips on “how to gHt youU PoVt flDt­tHULng VLGH-pDUt:

(1) Ev­ery­one has a VtUong DnG wHDN VLGH oI thHLU IDFH. ((GL­toU’V notH: DnG some of us have faces made IoU UDGLo.) 7o finG youU PoVt flDt­tHULng VLGH, looN Ln thH mir­ror and hold up a piece of printer pa­per to one side of thH IDFH.

(3) The side that has more fea­tures turned in the up­ward di­rec­tion is the VtUongHU VLGH oI thH IDFH.
