When it comes to a side part haircut whether you’re a man or woman, you have 3 options:
- Left side,
- Middle, or
- Right side.
Of course, you don’t have to have a part. You can go Caesar or slicked back.
For side-swept or part ideas, check this gallery out. All sorts of examples.
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 I grew up.
