What do Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Zoe, Olivia Palermo, Elle Fanning, Karlie Kloss, Elizabeth Olsen and Jennifer Aniston all have in common? Well, aside from being major celebrity Fashionistas, all of these fabulous ladies execute the same hairstyle: the super-chic center part. Although its popularity has been tangible for a while now, the center part has recently gained significant attention within the fashion world. Specifically, back in January of this year, Teen Vogue published an online editorial discussing this trend, illustrating that its implementation serves as a quick and easy way for Fashionistas everywhere to switch up their look. The spread also illustrates the style’s red carpet appropriateness, demonstrated through the celebrities listed above. However, red carpets are not the only places that Fashionistas can don a center part; in fact, this look is arguably one of the most versatile yet, with its wearability ranging in intent from casual to runway.
This Fashionista exemplifies this exact versatility: although the center part has been spotted at numerous fancy occasions, it can also be sported to class as well. With her locks loose and naturally wavy, this Fashionista exudes an element of simple sophistication primarily through her hairstyle. She looks effortlessly chic which, in my opinion, is the best type of chic there is. Her center part is further complemented by her simple sunnies, fluorescent salmon thermal (brights are in for spring, after all), cuffed skinnies and black ballet flats. Rocking the perfect daytime look, this Fashionista is simply (pun intended) show stopping and radiant.
Executing the center part starts from the moment you step out of the shower. When brushing out your freshly-washed tendrils, part your hair down the middle with a comb to make sure that the part is straight. Then, blow dry your hair as your normally would (don’t forget to add a heat protecting product!), making sure to blow heat from above to tame any fly-aways or cowlicks you may have. This look works with both waves and super-straight hair, so don’t hesitate bearing your natural tresses. When you have finished blowing your hair, apply a shining serum (this one is my absolute favorite) and you will be ready to go!
