The double parting look was huge on the catwalk for Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 and is one of 2014’s must-have styles. So, what does the double parting look actually involve? How can you create this style at home? The pros are on hand to give you their tips to creating this unique hairstyle.
One drawback to the double parting look is that it limits the types of hairstyles you can create. ‘It’s true that having a double parting means you can’t create as many hairstyles as you would be able to usually. If you want your double parting to be noticeable, you will need to style the hair around the parting with care. You’re going to need a lot of imagination! Try some twists
if you’re not sure where to start.
Creating more than one parting isolates the top half of your hair from the rest. ‘But, it’s more than just a way to show off the crown section of your hairstyle. It’s a good way of having fun with your lengths and experimenting with different hair ties’.
When creating a hairstyle with more than one parting, it’s important that the partings are extremely neat and precise. ‘Creating a parting may seem simple but it’s not always the case. You should be able to do this in one simple sweep. To do this, comb your hair
toward the back of the head, then place your comb where you want your parting to start, brushing it backwards down to the ends of your hair. The hand that holds the comb should guide your free hand when doing this. Try creating your parting on wet hair as this makes it much easier to create a neat line and keep in mind that you should make your parting in on single movement’. Our tip:
Of course, it is possible to create more than one or even two partings in the hair, but you will need to think more carefully about how to style the hair in between each parting. Each section between the partings needs to be styled so that the parting remains on show. © Pixelformula / Fatima Lopes prêt-à-porter, Spring-Summer 2014 © Jean Louis David
