I have relatively flat roots and am always looking for something, be it a product, hairstyle, or tip, to add some boost to my hair. In the TikTok video, the user simply switches her part to add instant volume to her roots. Now, I know what you're thinking: people rotate between a middle part and a side part to add volume all the time. But in this video, she went with the classic (and by classic I mean totally old-school, throwback) way of parting your hair: a zigzag.
I can vividly remember asking my mom to part my hair in a zigzag, securing my glittery butterfly clips in place, and heading off to school feeling like the coolest kid in the world. While this attempt at the hairstyle was for the purpose of volume and not to look trendy, I felt nostalgic just the same.
