Invasion of the Middle Part

The middle-part reigned at London Fashion Week. Brands like Pringle of Scotland, Paul Smith, and Jonathan Saunders sent models down the runway with center-parted strands flowing into loose, textured ends. Nothing too straight or too styled, just perfectly imperfect. Center-parts are great for framing the face, but unless your visage is  faultlessly symmetric, it’s better to make it slightly off of center, so you don’t split your face down the middle. 

Step One: Anyone with shoulder-length or longer layers, can recreate a similar style to London’s runways. Start by towel-drying hair, apply Bb. Tonic from roots to ends and then use a comb to make a slightly off-center center-part which is more forgiving then going straight down the middle.

Step Two: Apply Bb. Styling Lotion on your roots followed by Defining Creme from mid-lengths to ends.

Step Three: Blowdry loosely from roots to ends, using hands to encourage a loose, lived-in texture. Through the top, keep straight the first 2-3 inches of hair.

Step Four: From 3-4 inches from the root, down to the ends, use hands to wrap small sections of hair into tight little twists. Hold twists in hands and blowdry twists up and down on high heat with the nozzle always pointing down. This will encourage a loose, easy, wave cascade.

Step Five: If the wave fails to take, use a curling iron or wand to create artful tousle.
