We’ve even got two ways to style it, so choose the one that’s to your liking and give it a shot — what have you got to lose? how to wear a deep side part 

Get the Look: The Sleek Side Part

Step 1: Spray heat protectant onto your strands, like L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray. Then run a flat iron through you hair so it’s super straight and smooth. Step 2: Use a comb to make the part, and then section off the hair near the forehead. Twist it down toward your chin, stopping before your ear and insert a bobby pin to give it lift. Step 3: Spray a finishing shine spray like Kérastase Touche Finale Supershine Polishing Serum.  

Get the Look: The Curled Side Part 

Step 1: Apply a heat-protecting spray that holds curl, like Redken Iron Shape II - Finishing Thermal Spray – Heat Protection Hair Spray. Then use a 2-inch barrel curling iron to add soft curls framing the face. Step 2: Finish with a medium-hold hairspray, like Garnier Fructis Flexible Control Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray.   Which of these looks do you prefer?
