How to find your natural part

Chances are that you’ve been parting your hair the same way for the past decade. Have you ever stopped to wonder whether your go-to middle or side part is your natural part? Failing to find your natural part prolongs the time you spend styling your hair. Those moments when nothing you do to your hair seems right are sometimes the direct result of working against what your strands want to do naturally. So, don’t be afraid to switch up your part. You’ll have nothing to lose, but you will gain a new, refreshed look. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind the next time you style your hair.
Materials
- Hair clip
- Ponytail holder
- Spray bottle filled with water
- Blow dryer
- Paddle brush
- Flat iron (optional)

Instructions
1. Clip a small section of hair up on top of your head, at your crown.
2. Pull the remaining hair in the back into a low ponytail.
3. Unclip the top section. If your hair is dry, use the spray bottle to dampen it at the root area.
4. Blow dry the top section of your hair in several directions while using a paddle brush to create movement at the roots.
5. Pull the section of hair back and gather it together as if you're creating another ponytail, then push your strands forward slightly. You should see where your hair wants to separate naturally.
6. Tilt your head to find natural parts that are closer to the side.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 until you find a natural part that best suits the style you want. Remember to let your hair fall in the direction it wants.
8. Remove the ponytail holder, and style your hair with a curling iron.
