Sleek hair: Middle vs. Side hair part

  • v/s"
Sleek middle part or slick side part?

You've got your super sleek and shiny hair ready to go, but an important question still remains: what about the part? Will you go straight down the middle with a classic centre part, or take a different side and – literally – go for a side part? Vote here for your favourite way of styling sleek long hair!

Centre part

The hairstyle: Providing the perfect symmetry to the face, the centre part is a go-to classic that's suitable for any occasion.

Styling: For the most precise line all the way along the head, use a tail comb. If you suffer from a few flyaways, smooth a drop or two of serum such as over the hair for non-greasy, glossy shine.

What the editors say: Balanced and beautiful, a centre part allows the attention to be entirely on the glossy, sleek hair itself. Waves make a nice contrast with silky roots.

Side part

The hairstyle: A side part is especially flattering for those with long-shaped faces, as it widens the appearance of your features and provides balance.

Styling: Swish your hair over to one side and see where it naturally falls – this is where you place your side part. Use the Shower Shine for extra shine and strong hold along the part.

What the editors say: We love how the top section really shows off the hair's high shine, disappearing into long shimmering waves like a mermaid!
