5 Flattering Ways to Part Your Curls
01. Horizontal Parting or Ladder Part
The Horizontal Parting is a stylist’s favorite. This parting techniques gives your curls the ability to move. With a series of horizontal part lines, like a ladder, you won’t be able to see them once your hair is styled and dry. Instead, your curls will fall naturally around your face with more volume at the root and crown area.
To achieve this look, begin with freshly washed hair and apply your styling products while parting your hair. I like to begin at the crown, and then create and style horizontal sections moving forward towards my hairline.
02. Zigzag part
If you are not into flipping your hair throughout the day, the zigzag part is a perfect option to keep your curls in place. You can make your zigzag sections as thick or thin as you’d like, depending on your hair density.
Then, once its styled and dried, no matter how your move, your hair will just put itself back into place with the zigzag part. To see this in action, see the youtube video of these hair parting styles too.
03. Half Middle Part
Currently trending, this style captures the middle part look at your hairline, and then frames your face with the volume at the crown. What’s not to love?
04. Deep Diagonal Part
The beauty of the Deep Diagonal Part is that it gives the look of a side part, while also giving you volume of both sides of your face. So, if a side part is typically not flattering on you, this balanced look might be just what you’re looking for. It’s a beautiful look to show off those face framing layers too.
05. Centered Diagonal Part / Mini Diagonal Part
Cuteness in a part is the Centered Diagonal Parting style. While adding some detail to the front of your face, it’s beautiful to style with updos as well. This is also a great option if you have a cowlick in the front of your hairline that prevents you from making a straight middle part.
