92 Side Part Hairstyles for Men (Photos)

A young model with a side-part hairstyle.

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.

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 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.

Male celebrities like it

If you check out our male celebrities galleries, you’ll notice that many men celebs have and/or are sporting a side part style.  This is because it’s a classic look.  Moreover, there are many varieties you can enjoy – tousled, slicked, casual, etc.  It works with all hair colors and hair types… although it can be difficult or not possible with very curly hair.
