Women's hairstyles tend to be structured around a parting. Usually a centre parting, or a side parting to create volume
. But for men it's a whole different story. Here's a look at men's partings.
While the slick, wet-look trend
features a parting, other popular men's hairstyles do not. "Men's hairstyles don't really use partings. Though as there are so many different men's hairstyles, it's pretty hard to generalise. In any case, men's hairstyles tend to focus less on the parting and more on the movement that the style creates. Partings are rarely used in men's hairstyles to create structure, unless you're after a particularly distinct, rock hairstyle."
Partings tend to feature in longer hairstyles. "Short haircuts are rarely structured using a parting. However, long hair is always separated using a parting. It is generally worn in the centre as this is the way hair naturally falls. It is rare to see side partings on men with long hair." Our tip :
If you want to wear a parting, by all means do! "Contrary to popular belief, a parting does not necessarily make you look older. It will give your style a more classic edge. For a neat, well-defined parting, use a comb
to create it in your position of choice." © DR © Jean Louis David
