Side Part Body Wave: 4 New and Unique Ways to Wear the Hairstyle

Setting trends wherever you go.

Are you looking to ditch the typical middle part look but you’re not completely sure how to get out of your comfort zone? Then you should consider trying a side part body wave – a beautiful way to transition out of always wearing the middle part look!

A body wave is a looser type of wavy hair that can be achieved by using a larger curling roller on a curling iron. This look can be worn as a natural hair protective style when styled on a human hair weave or wig. It looks especially sleek and polished when worn to the side. 

Here are a few different ways you can style the Side Part Body Wave Look:

1. Layered Side Part Body Wave

A beautiful way to wear your body wave is in a layered cut. This will not only create an intricate look but will also add more volume to your hair if that’s your forte. Use Suave Professionals Firm Control Finishing Hairspray to help hold the layers in place all day! 

2. Crimped Body Wave Ponytail

Wear your side part body wave in a ponytail for a sleek yet laid-back look. To add a more creative twist to your body wave, wear it in a crimped style. To achieve this look, after loosely curling your hair with a curling iron, use a crimper to enhance the look. When slicking down the top of your ponytail, use Suave Max Hold Sculpting Gel to establish a firm hold.
