If you are tired of a center parting or simply want an elegant way of doing your hair a bit differently, a side parting is a great idea. It makes you look trendy, and whatever the length of your hair, bobbed, long, or shoulder-length, you look fabulous. You can do different side partings, deep or shallow to suit the occasion. When you do a deep side parting it brings a large volume of hair over to one side, highlighting it to perfection.
You can do side partings, keeping your hair open and flowing if you have long hair. For formal occasions you can do a side parting and keep your hair in an elegant bun. You can also pin some of your hair up and let the rest down on one side. The braided look is great with a thick side-braid.
