The deep part has been a mainstay on the runway for years and spring NYFW 2015 was no exception. But what if you’re not really into the sleek look, or want to ruin a fresh blowout with a deep part? Well you’re in luck, because today I’m showing you two cool ways to rock the deep part in a non-sleek way.
THE PARTY PART
First up, the reverse deep part. I love a deep part and it’s easy to rock without sleeking your hair with gel or pomade. In fact, styling in this fashion can completely revive a blowout or change up your look in fresh, easy way. Here we have Stephanie Vendetti of How To Be a Redhead modeling this fierce trend for fall.
What You’ll Need:
- – Volume/Teasing Spray
- – Root Powder (if hair isn’t freshly washed)
- – Teasing Comb
- – Curling Iron
Part your hair to the opposite side you normally wear it, for instant volume. If you normally part your hair down the middle, part it to the side where it lays the best—and offers maximum instant volume.
Next, spray volumizing hair spray to add/keep volume. I like using Not Your Mother’s She’s A Tease Hairspray for adding volume and absorbing scalp oils. This little ditty acts almost like a volumizing hair powder or you can use NYM’s Girl Powder for extra lift, oil removal.
Start curling layers away from the face to create face-framing, windswept waves. Adding waves and curls helps to keep your new part in place. Curl and frame along the face on both sides of the face. A 1 or 1 ½ inch curling iron is best.
Spray hair in place and push hair forward to further exaggerate part—creating a peek-a-boo effect with the part hovering over the eyes…talk about sexy! I love this look for fall!
THE BRAIDED PART
For our next look, try parting your hair with a cascading braid to achieve a deep part with interest and barely any need for product. This is a great way to preserve a blowout or change things up for fall. Here we have Adrienne Vendetti of How To Be a Redhead modeling this fresh braid for fall. Say goodbye to the greasy side part and instead try this!
What You’ll Need:
- – Volume/Holding Spray
- – Root Powder (if hair isn’t freshly washed, or on the oily side)
- – Parting/Teasing Comb
- – Clear rubber band
Begin creating a 3D French braid by braiding hair from underneath so the braid has more volume and pops! Create your cascading braid by only grabbing hair from the back of the head versus the front and back as illustrated below. Borrow hair from the back until you get to almost the end of your strands.
Once you’ve reached the end of your strands, tie your braid with a clear elastic band. Have fun wearing as-is or pushing your hair all to one side (both styles demonstrated below).
