Changing up your part can change your your look in ways you can’t even imagine, but the wrong kind of part can accentuate the features that you don’t want to put in the spotlight. To help you out and make things easier for you, here’s a guide to finding the perfect part for your face. Girls, reach for your combs as you read...
1. If your face is round

If you are not sure about which side is the best for a deep side parting, just cover one half of the face with paper while looking in the mirror. Both the sides of your face are not symmetrical and we bet you might even have a ‘favourite’ side.
2. If you have an oval face

3. If your face is heart shaped

If your hair naturally parts in the middle, then with the help of a fine toothed comb, part your hair while it’s wet and blow dry. We bet you’ll love your new look!
4. If you have a diamond shaped face

Also, diamond shaped faces tend to have smaller foreheads so it’s better not to have bangs otherwise your face will look even smaller. But if you do have a fringe, just grow it out and go with a side swept hairstyle. Hairstyles with wavy textures look great on this face shape.
5. If your face is square shaped

6. If your face is triangle shaped

Parting your hair slightly off the center line will help in balancing your features. You can even choose to have side bangs as they will cover your forehead and make it look narrower.
7. If you have an oblong face

Bangs help in making your face look a tad shorter. Also, opt for a haircut with layers so that it brings out your strong cheekbones.So girls, what’s the perfect part for your shape?
