By now, middle parts have solidified themselves as a retro trend that is definitively "back" and apparently going as strong as ever — thanks in part to models like Kendall Jenner. These influencers have taken the look from childhood school picture day to edgy modern trend.
Middle parts work well with a range of styles, including ponytails, updos, waves, and braids. If you're feeling bold, go with a sleek, fashion-forward look — or, if you're not quite as comfortable with sleek-hair middle part, use it as a way to step up your classic curls. Either way, finish it off with a product known to minimize flyaways. Vanessa recommends Bumble & Bumble Semisumo Pomade ($29).
