We all have our go-to middle part or signature side that is pretty much our default hairdo and we don’t even give it too much thought. But did you know that the way your hair is parted can help give the illusion of killer bone structure, emphasize your brows and enhance a small forehead or downplay a wide one? Yup, switching your part is the simplest way to change up not just your hair but your whole look. Don’t believe us? Just check out how this small change made a big impact with these celebrity looks. You can try a different part every day, or none at all!
1. Sonam Kapoor
Trust our fave style diva to change up her hair as often as she changes her sartorial style from fierce to girly to sexy. Rocking black both times, but her red carpet style couldn’t have looked more different. We think the center part adds to the fierceness of her first look, while the side parting gives the second look a softer charm.
2. Deepika Padukone
One of our fave style chameleons, DPad looks stunning no matter what. Take note of how she plays with the styling of the part as well as the position of it. From the slight side part to the totally defined and sleek side to no parting at all. She easily displays just how much it can influence your whole look.

3. Alia Bhatt
She’s been experimenting with her hair like crazy; after all, we all know that Alia never repeats a braid twice. From a no-part slicked-back do to a slightly off-center part to a side swoop, Alia shows us how not committing to a specific parting is the best thing to happen to our daily style.

4. Jacqueline Fernandez
This long-haired hottie never fails to give us major hair goals. Notice how she rocks a side part but manages to make it look different for different occasions. From a definite parting to one that’s more askew and not so severe, you don’t even need to change your side to change up your style.
5. Athiya Shetty
If you prefer a good old parting down the middle then just look to Athiya shetty for inspiration. From strong and defined to slightly off-center, she makes a strong case for the center parting.
6. Priyanka Chopra
Piggy Chops is a stellar example of a no-part do to help you stun. Pulling all your hair back for a cool braid or voluminous updo is perfect for flaunting perfectly arched brows and changing up your look entirely. That’s how she’s been wowing across the globe, after all!
