The side part is performed by parting the hair on either the left or right side of the scalp. This part works well for achieving a look that requires more hair on one side of the head or the other. The middle part, sometimes called a center part, is designed to give roughly equal amounts of hair to work with on both sides.
Curved hair parting techniques require the individual to part their hair in a series of short straight lines that move away from each other slightly, in a curve. If you want a deeper part you will need to cut more lines.
Zig Zag Hair Parting
Diagonal Hair Parting
The diagonal part is used to cut across the top of the head in a diagonal manner. It provides an incredible amount of flair for any style designed to work with it. Typically, up-style hairdos will be the type of hairstyles that work best with this style.
If you seek a clear and heavily defined part in your hair try using a bit of pomade along the route that the part
follows. This will help to keep the part well defined in a simple and direct manner. Hair parting can be a simple or complicated process, depending on what you wish to do. However, it allows for maximum style!
