The Middle Part Trend: Transform Your Hair With a Mini Makeover

This instant makeover will completely change your look.

Along with the colder weather comes the inevitable shift in fashion and beauty trends. Effortless, I-just-rolled-out-of-bed looks are at their peak and opting for a hair trend like the middle part will take this easygoing look to the next level. The middle part trend is one of those transformative hacks that quickly takes an oversized sweater and jeans from grocery shopping material to off-duty model status in seconds. There’s just something about the neat and edgy line of a middle part that gives the impression of an intentional and high fashion look usually reserved for bloggers and celebrities.

It’s easy enough to recreate your part and redefine your look with another perspective: simply brush your hair back and use a rat tail comb to create a straight line down the center of your hair. If you find that your hair is a little more stubborn, you can blow dry your hair in the direction of a center part after you’ve washed it. This will reset your strands and help them fall much more naturally in the direction you’re aiming for.

You might also consider using a smoothing shampoo and conditioning system like Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner to smooth your strands and make them a bit more manageable before redefining their direction.


If you notice new flyaway hairs popping up when you recenter your part, don’t be surprised. If you’re used to wearing your hair in one direction it can be hard to retrain it all at once. Try using TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2 to smooth down those flyways and keep your style sleek. Whether you opt to wear your middle part with your hair down, half up or thrown up into a ponytail, this hairspray will help keep those baby hairs in check.
