The Glossy Center Part is the Ultimate Effortlessly Cool Style

This sleek and shine will have you feelin' oh-so-fleeky.

We know that the weekend is for letting your hair down and switching up your style, but have you become tired of your go-to weekend hairstyle? It’s easy to get into the habit of certain hairstyles during the week, the weekend, and deep in-between washes (updos, updos, updos!). Don’t overthink a new hairstyle for this weekend, it’s simpler than you think. Go for sophisticated, chic, and shiny with a glossy center part. A clean center part screams cool girl status and adding a sleek finish to the look will give you an even more Insta-worthy style.

The best part about this look? It’s so easy to create! We’ll take you through the main steps and products you need to take to get the ultimate effortlessly cool style.

Prep your strands

Before the real styling begins, it’s important to prep your hair for the ultimate anti-frizz and sleek finish. Start by spraying heat protectant on damp hair. Our current fave is Dove Style+Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray. The finish with this spray is seriously soft and smooth. Then, blow-dry your hair as straight as possible.

Straighten hair

Next, create a clean center part. If you feel like your style could be straighter, straighten your strands with a flat iron. If you want to keep some texture, feel free to keep your hair the way it is.

Add your gloss of choice

Now comes the fun part! You get to start bringing the glossy center part look to life. There are two great product options you can use: hair gel or styling cream. Whichever you choose, take just a pump or two and lightly spread it through your hair, roots down. It’s important to keep this a light amount because we aren’t going for a wet look, just a glossy one. If you want to go the gel route then you definitely need to try TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Firm Control Gel. This gel will add shine and hold to your style.

If you decide to go the styling cream route, then Bed Head by TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream is a perfect choice. This cream helps make your hair soft, shiny and frizz-free.

Seal it with hair spray

Once you’ve got your glossy center part just the way you like it, it’s time to set it with hairspray and give it some extra shine. Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Hair Spray will give you the perfect finish to your new style!
