One thing you may not actually realize when it comes to finding a new way to style your hair is that it can be as simple as changing the direction of your parting. This can be a great way to mix up your side part haircut or middle parted hair. Either option is a quick and surefire way to update your look in a stylish (and easy!) way.
So before considering a new haircut, try styling your medium length hair a different way for a change without having to nip a few hairs. Our top pick of the moment is the side part. Once you master this simple styling trick, you can eventually move on to bigger (a pompadour, perhaps?) and more stylish (a sleek combover, maybe?) hairstyles. But for now, let’s stick to the basics. Here’s how to style side part haircut on medium length hair.
Side Part Haircut Tutorial: Easy Way to Style Medium Length Hair
Wash your hair with the Dove Men + Care Thick & Strong Fortifying 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner and towel-dry your hair. If you’re short on time or need of some volume at the roots before styling, then you’ll need to blow-dry your hair.
Apply some styler.
Opt for a pomade or gel, depending on the look you’re going for. To create a style that stays in place (and to show off your side parted hair) use a gel like Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play Firm Finish Gel (not pictured) to slick your hair down (including pesky cowlicks) with a healthy shine.
Mold hair into shape.
After applying your styling product, mold your hair into the shape you like and let it dry in place for a few minutes. Be sure to style hair in the opposite direction of your part to make it much more prominent.
