Switch Up Your Look with a Double Part Hairstyle

Two parts, one edgy hairstyle.

It can be easy to get into a styling rut and feel like there’s nothing simple enough you’re willing to try that will give you the new look you want. Not everyone who wants to switch up their style with something drastic like a new color or cut, and we totally get that! We’ve been loving easy style changes to create a whole new look, that doesn’t have to last more than a day. One of the coolest looks we’ve been loving right now is a double part hairstyle. Check out how easy it is to create this fun look:

How to Create a Double Part Hairstyle

Start with Straight Hair

While you technically don’t have to straighten your hair for this style, we think the part will look most noticeable and dramatic if you start with the sleekest base possible. You could even just blow dry your hair if you don’t like to use straighteners. Whatever you choose, make sure to use heat protectant to avoid damaging your hair. We love Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray because it also leaves you with a super soft finish.

Separate Your Hair into Three Sections

Create three different sections, take a small section of hair from the front, horizontally from all around the crown of your head. Split the back section into two, vertically. This will give you the start of a double part!

Add Gel

Give your hair a slick and shiny finish by adding gel to each section. TRESemmé Extra Hold Hair Gel will give you the perfect finish. Make sure you add enough so that your hair is perfectly smoothed down and flyaway free. This double part look is all about being extra slick.

Secure Each Section

Use bobby pins to secure the front section discretely in the back. For the back two sections, go for two tight buns to add to the slick updo. Make them low buns or semi-high, but if you put them too high they’ll take away from the double part.

Finish with Hairspray

Give your look extra hold and shine with some Bed Head by TIGI Masterpiece Shine Hairspray.
