Brushing your hair to one side will avoid a blocky look. Side swept style looks fantastic for thick hair and a good option for weekend getaways.
It can be tricky to find a perfect haircut that can emphasize your face when you have thick hair with wavy texture. This side-swept style is perfect if you're looking for a new look and it's really popular now.

The side part is a classic cut and style.  Even fades and undercuts can include a part on the left or right.

Some parts are extreme on the far side while others are closer to the center.  However, it should not be confused with a combover which isn’t a part.  Other cuts that have no part include Caesar cuts, mohawks, forward tousled cuts and slicked back styles (to name a few).

The side part is a traditional, conservative style that will always be fashionable.  I think it’s a much nicer look than a center part.  When I was a kid I did the center part thinking it looked cool.  I wizened up when when I grew up.

It works for long, medium-length and short hair, although not for buzz cuts because there’s no hair to part.  It’s too short.
