SIMPLE YET STYLISH - CENTRE PARTINGS

SIMPLE YET STYLISH - CENTRE PARTINGS

The new Dior pre-autumn/winter 2013/2014 show released in January features some sleek centre parting hairstyles which are officially back for good in 2013. Centre partings have been out of fashion for a little while now, as hairstylists turned towards sweeping fringes and ponytails in 2012. Dior’s centre partings were neatly manicured, matching the immaculately designed clothing. centrepartingTWO Each model sported shoulder blade-length hair that was kept off the face by tucking it behind the ears. This emphasised the models' faces, with the centre partings complementing the clothing in every photo. Hair in the Dior shoot also had a glossy finish, making it look luxurious and rich. centrepartingFOUR Despite their simple appearance, centre partings can actually be quite difficult to pull off. Those that suit them though should use this style to their advantage – its simplicity can effectively draw the eye. centrepartingTHREE_1 It's not the first time that Dior has highlighted the centre parting, either. In the Dior autumn/winter 2012-2013 show (pictured), centre partings were used to great effect. The hairstyle drew attention to the clothing on show, while also ensuring the models remained elegant. Centre partings are ideal for those with excellent bone structure, as it shows off the cheekbones and jawline. Poker straight hair can be achieved by using the Hershesons Titanium Ionic Professional Straighteners, although wavy, tousled locks also look excellent when paired with a centre parting. Adding a fringe to the centre parting can also recreate this style, so depending on your mood you could go for a super-straight centre parting or a fringe to soften the face.
