Tired of the same old hairdo? In less than one minute, you can dramatically change the way your hair looks, and receive plenty of compliments.

The one-minute trick that will make your hair stand out

Why your part matters

  • The part of your hair is a critical element of your style. Be honest — you probably don't play with your part very often.
  • This is because most of us have hair that is trained to fall in one direction or the other.
  • Although we are frequently tempted to cut, colour, curl or braid our locks, many of us forget to experiment with the part of our hair.
  • This habit can be a mistake. By parting hair strands in the same way on a regular basis, you risk falling into a style rut or neglecting to find the look that is most flattering to you.
  • So go ahead — dare to part differently.

Switch it up

  • The easiest way to break out of a hair rut is to try parting the hair on the opposite side than usual.
  • This will not just draw the eye to a different part of the face, but it can also bring more volume to the hair.
  • Sometimes, this simple switch is all it takes to make a big difference.

Go dramatic

  • If you're looking for even more drama, try parting your hair deeply near your ear.
  • By adopting a dramatic side part, you will project a daring image that works well for formal events and special occasions.
  • If needed, use a few hairpins or a bit of gel or pomade to ensure that the hair stays in place. Check yourself out in a mirror to make sure it doesn't slip out from the restraints.

Down the middle

  • Depending on your face shape, this can be a very flattering part. Be sure to use a mirror to achieve a perfectly symmetrical look.
  • You can let your hair tumble downward or pull it back into a ponytail for an effortless hairstyle.

New life for your hair

  • You don't need to invest in a haircut, colour, or style session to give your hair new life. Don't be afraid to experiment, and play with side and centre parts.
  • Remember, the best hairstyles are fun to do and to wear.
