When you think of high style, the last place you may think to look is at the part in your hair. What? It's just a comb dragged in a straight line at the place your hair normally falls, right? Wrong-o. Hair styles are stepping over to the extreme side with deep parts that create a dramatic, sideswept and -- dare we say -- unnatural movement of the mane. Not to worry, Donald Trump; while these stylish parts teeter on the verge of a comb-over, they don't come close to stealing your thunder. Who knew a part could be a fashion accessory?
Style your hair as you normally do. That means, if your hair is wavy, scrunch it with gel or styling lotion. If you like it super-sleek, iron or blow dry it to your liking. Like to rock the curly Qs? Curl away. The beauty of the deep part is that it works with all lengths, cuts and textures -- even those of natural ladies. Since hair usually styles better on the day after a shampoo, don't bother washing.
Take a rat-tail, fine-tooth or any other kind of comb, and create a part that is at least several inches deeper than normal -- that is, further down toward your ear from your natural part. Start at the outer edge of your eyebrow and drag the comb to the back of your crown. Keep the line straight or add extra emphasis by dragging the comb at a diagonal from just above your ear up to the middle of your head.
Sweep up your hair toward the back to create a chic pony if your hair's long enough, or tuck the short side of your parted hair behind your ear for a cute, flirty look. Spray your deep part in place with some finishing spray.
Pin your deep part back with a jewelry barrette or bobby pin. Better yet, let the long, loose fringe drape over one eye. You don't really need to see where you're going anyway, right?
