Centre Parts Are Back As A Sleek And Chic Hair Trend

While a slick middle part may have once been a classic schoolgirl hairstyle, centre partings are now stealing the spotlight as a rising trend. If you once wore your hair expertly divided down the middle with two accompanying pigtails, you can embrace the style again. However, the girlish plaits of yesteryear have been replaced by softly falling tendrils and gentle yet voluminous waves.

Among the stars, middle parts are officially front and centre as a surprisingly popular look. Model Jourdan Dunn recently rocked a centre parting, along with chic wispy side bangs and an upswept style. The 26-year-old British beauty’s golden highlights brought a sun-kissed, summery effect to her looks, while the part kept her hairdo looking chic and professional.

Blonde bombshell Kate Bosworth has also sported the look, with a soft yet tidy part perfectly separating her platinum tresses. The actress’ medium length haircut and subtle waves certainly help to create a timeless and elegant statement.

Staying true to her classic red carpet beauty, Olivia Munn also proves that a neat centre part can help to bring definition to long jet black locks. Her wavy tresses and longer length are the perfect antidote to the severe part, which brings the focus to her refined facial features.
