Straight to the point!

Whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall, the sharp deep-side part will always be in style. This New York Fashion Week season, we spotted models off-duty wearing the look. It’s pretty safe to say that they took the sharp part trend from the runway to the streets.

While the look may seem pretty straight forward, we do know there are a few tips and tricks that’ll help you nail the look in minutes. Read on:

1. Use a rat-tail comb to create the part.

When creating the sharp part hairstyle, the main goal is to create the cleanest and straightest part possible. Instead of trying to wing it, use the tail of a rattail comb to create a neat part. As a rule of thumb, align your part with the arch of your eyebrow to ensure you have the right placement.

2. Use gel for hold and to tame flyaways.

There’s no room for flyaways with this style. Keep them under control with a strong hold gel. We like how Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel helps mold your hair into the shape you want and keep each strand in place. Apply as much as you need depending on your hair’s thickness and smooth onto your strands. Use a boar bristle brush to distribute product and brush hair into place.

3. Finish with a shine spray.

Last but not least is the cherry on top of your style. Finish up with a shine spray to add a glossy, or should we say, “glassy” look to your hairstyle. Spray a liberal amount of Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Spray to achieve this and you’re set.
