How to Switch to a Middle Part in the Hair


Changing your part can be quite the ordeal—once you establish a part and brush your hair that way regularly, hair tends to rebel if you decide you'd like a new look. Thankfully, a chic, retro middle part is the natural part for most people and you can retrain your hair to part in the middle with a few simple steps.

Things You'll Need

  • Fine-toothed comb
  • Spray bottle

Tell your hairdresser where you'd like your part to be when you go in for a haircut. Your hairdresser can cut your hair in a way that will make your middle part cooperate more with the rest of your hair.

Fill a spray bottle up with warm water and apply a fine mist to the top of your head. Slightly moist hair will be more cooperative when you start working on your part.

Create your part with a fine-toothed comb. Drag the comb down the center of your head, starting at the front, and move any unruly strands of hair gently to their correct side of the part.

Use a blowdryer on medium heat right down the part area; the heat will keep the hair in place.

Fluff the hair around the parted area gently to give it extra volume; you don't want it to look flat or unnatural.

Repeat these steps as necessary. Repeat more if your hair is particularly stubborn and doesn't like its new part.

Tips & Warnings

  • Changing your part will be easier if your hair is on the thinner side; people with thicker hair will find it harder to change the part.
  • People with a widow's peak would probably do better to opt for a side part.
  • People with crooked noses or asymmetrical facial features might also want to forgo the middle part, according to the fashion experts at BellaSugar.
