Only recently, middle part haircuts have been part of how I style my hair. Why? Because I have ultra-thick, curly hair, and I thought a middle part would look ridiculous on me. However, after seeing several celebrities rocking the middle part, I gave up all my inhibitions and decided to try it.

The result: I am in love! Switching from a side part to a middle part hairstyle can give you the right amount of change you may have been craving. Keep reading! I’ll teach you everything you need to know about a middle part hair cut, including how to style a middle part, the best face shapes, and more!

#1: Mid-Length Hairstyle

A mid-length hairstyle is a simple yet beautiful style perfect for anyone who desires an easy-to-style, wearable crop. The mix of mid-length hair and a center part line forms a striking sense of symmetry throughout the hairstyle that can suit anyone’s style goals.

#2: Silvery-Grey Sleek Bob for Fine Hair

Rock a trendy new look with a silvery gray sleek bob if you have fine hair. A trendy bob with a middle part is one of the most popular styles. If you wear your hair parted another way, it may take a few days for your hair to fall correctly. Ensure your bob falls either right below or right above your shoulders, so it’s not at an awkward length.

#3: Middle-Parted on Long Blonde Curled Hair

If you’re looking for a bold style, a middle part can elongate your facial features. Consider if your face is round, diamond-shaped, pear-shaped, or oval.

#4: Middle Parted and Curled

If you’re looking to include a middle-parted and curled hairstyle in your daily routine, ensuring that you have the right tools is key. I suggest starting with a good heat protectant and a styling tool. The best styling tool for achieving voluminous waves is an inch-and-a-quarter curling iron.

Try a haircut with blonde balayage because it’s in style for women with short hair. This versatile look adds dimension to your hair and will give your hair a sun-kissed effect. The part gives a symmetrical, balanced look, while the blonde balayage adds brightness and contrast. These features work well for those who want to enhance their facial features and create a more feminine look. It helps to frame the face and draw attention to the eyes. Maintain and style this haircut by using a heat-protectant spray before blow-drying.

#7: Softly Layered Brunette Hair

A brunette hairdo with soft layers is versatile and elegant. It’s a great choice for women who want an effortless look. The subtle layers add movement and texture, which creates a soft and natural appearance. A center part enhances facial symmetry and suits various face shapes. The style is most suited to those with medium-length to long hair. It works best with straight or slightly wavy textures. Gentle layers provide dimension and frame the face beautifully. Adding a smoothing serum to your hair before blow drying is a good method to give it some shine.

#8: Adorable Brunette Hair

A middle-parted hairstyle on brunette hair is perfect for those looking to add charm to their appearance. The part divides the face evenly, highlighting facial features and creating a balanced look. This style works particularly well for brunettes as it enhances the depth and richness of their hair color. It also creates the illusion of a slimmer face shape. Styling this look is straightforward. Apply a heat protectant to your hair. Then, use a flat iron to make your hair sleek and straight. Finish off with a light hairspray to keep your hair in place throughout the day.

#9: Long Sleek Slob Haircut

For women with long faces and straight hair, a long sleek slob haircut with a center part can be a perfect choice. The length of the slob elongates the face while the parting frames it. This results in a flattering and balanced look. This haircut is versatile and can work for both casual and formal settings. Maintaining the sleekness of the cut requires regular trims and smoothing products. To style, I suggest using a flat iron to straighten the hair and add shine serum for a polished finish.

#10: Dark Blonde Balayage on a Bob

I LOVE the dark blonde balayage! This cut shapes her thick hair, and the color adds a soft, rich dimension to her hair that will be low maintenance. If you want this look, ask for your options at your next salon visit.

Instagram @yukistylist

#11: Mid-Length Internal Layers

You can add texture and movement to the hair by adding internal layers. It means weight removal without elevation. Or ask for concave layers to create layers through the middle. The best way to style this cut and show off the movement is by adding texture-like waves to the hair.

#12: Rooty Middle Part

Rooty middle-part hairstyles are a low-maintenance yet chic look. The roots are kept darker than the rest of the hair, creating a natural gradient effect that you can wear easily. Adding face-framing layers for those with longer hair can help create a soft and flowy mane. To style, I recommend using a lightweight oil or serum to add shine and smoothness to the hair. Use a straightening iron to create a sleek middle part, then finish with a light hairspray. Avoid using any products that will wear your hair down, and you want your face-framing layers to stand out!

#13: Makeover for Soft Light Brown Hair

Opt for a makeover with a soft, light brown color. If you want to wear your hair with a center parting, you will want to follow style vs. fashion. Middle partings work great on round, diamond, and triangle face shapes. As they create an elongating effect. Ask for a few ways to part your hair to decide which suits your face best.

#14: Bright Platinum Medium-Length Hairstyle

Platinum hair color is bold and striking when paired with a medium-length hairstyle. This hair color works best for those with fair or olive skin tones. It suits hair that is naturally straight or has a slight wave. Maintaining the brightness of this color takes careful attention. It’s helpful to schedule regular treatments and toners as they can easily fade or turn brassy. Styling this look requires a smoothing serum or oil from the mid-shaft to the ends. Avoid the roots to prevent greasiness. Finish with a spritz of shine spray to show off the vibrant color and healthy shine.

#15: Layered Wavy Hair

You’ll love the pretty style of layered wavy hair. Trim your lengthy hair to keep it healthy, and add a layered style for a subtle lift. Note that if you style your hair with a curling iron and a heat protectant, it will become shiny and smooth. You’ll love the effect. Remember to apply a light hairspray, both before and after combing, for excellent hold.

#16: Creamy Blonde Hair

A creamy blonde is trending. One of the most sought-after blondes is a soft-rooted color melt. The best option for low-maintenance blonding is to diffuse lines of demarcation. Your first session will be all over blonde highlights. And tipping out the ends will give you brightness when between maintenance sessions.

#17: Beautiful Copperish Waves

This beautiful copperish waves style is perfect for mid-length hair. Be aware that a middle part doesn’t work for everyone. Allow your stylist to determine if it will work with your face shape, hairline, and cowlicks. To style this look, start by blow-drying the hair in sections with a round brush to give the hair lift and volume. Then, use a curling wand or an iron to curl the hair in sections. Finish the look by brushing out the curls to give the hair a softer, more natural look. To maintain the style, use a light-hold hairspray and avoid heat styling tools.

70s-Inspired Modern Shag with a Center Part on mid-length Asian hair

#18: 70s-Inspired Modern Shag with a Center Part

A 70s-inspired modern shag with a center part is the best way to incorporate a retro vibe. Add in a soft curtain fringe and textured face-framing. Both transform into limp haircuts. Give your stylist references photos like this one to communicate your wanted shape. Air-drying haircuts like this are a great way to embrace your natural texture. Try a co-wash product to enhance that, like Hairstory’s New Wash Original

Loose & Wavy Bob with a Center Part
Instagram @tabcutshair

#19: Loose & Wavy Bob

This loose and wavy bob is one of the hottest trends right now. It’s a great look for those with medium to thick hair types. The waves add the perfect amount of volume while maintaining natural movement. For face shapes that are oval or square, this hairstyle will show your features in all the right ways!

#20: Gorgeous Blonde Blowout

Consider a middle part hairstyle to compliment your oval face shape. Add medium-length layers to help add volume. This style uses a round brush and a hair dryer to create a smooth and sleek look. It frames the face and accentuates the layers.

#21: Soft and Ashy Hair

If you want the perfect hair, your first step should be getting a sharp part. To ensure it’s straight and even, it helps to use a rat tail comb, not just your fingers. After that, use styling products like mousse or texture spray. Your hair will look like it has more texture and body while blow drying with a round brush. Add volume at the root by over-directing your round brush. Finally, finish off with hairspray for hold. This way, you don’t have to worry about how long-lasting your hairstyle is throughout the day!

#22: Soft Ash Blonde Medium-Length Cut

A soft ash blonde is one of the best and most popular tones when highlighting. This color can also be difficult to achieve as we all naturally have warm undertones in our hair. When you think about changing your color, please come prepared for your appointment with pictures. This will help you and your stylist to be on the same page.

#23: Blonde Balayage

When it comes to all hairstyles, blonde balayage is a great choice. Its subtle painting technique provides the right amount of dimension and movement. That way, you can achieve highlights without committing to high-maintenance colors. To prevent breakage and dryness, use moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. Also, try a nourishing hair treatment. Oway and Hairstory have great options for colored hair.

#24: Medium to Long Ash Blonde Hair

If you want to show off your icy blonde hair, make sure you’re styling your hair with a centered part. Curl your hair away from your face. This will overdirect your fringe area so that your hair flips out. This is a great way to open your hair, giving it a fuller appearance.

Flawless Shag with High Layers and a Middle Part
Instagram @yukistylist

#25: Flawless Shag with High Layers

A flawless shag with high layers is the “trendy girl” style of the year. Remember to ask your stylist for a razor haircut for the best results. It will add extra texture to the ends and layers for texture and volume.

#26: Extra Long Hairstyle

Try adding a heavy layered frame if you need shaping to your long length. A center part can give you more narrowness on your wider set face. The layers with a mid-part stack the hair, giving you more movement and reweight from your long hair. When in doubt, ask your stylist how short you should start framing your face.

Gorgeous Middle-Parted Lob Cut

#27: Gorgeous Lob Cut

Why not ask for a lob cut? Try to maintain the length around your face to give a strong shape. Give attitude by drying in a center parting and adding some loose curls. Allow cooling, then shake out for added volume and a stacked finish.

#28: Jet Black Lob with a Part in the Middle

There’s nothing more powerful than a jet black lob with a part in the middle. One of my favorite classic looks! A lob is one of those things that always stay in style. Ask for a soft black if you want a little more reflect, or you can add blue to your color formula for more depth. If your hair is finer, keeping the layering light is important.

#29: Jaw-Length Tousled Bob

Are you looking to bring your limp hair back to life and rock a style with your hair parted in the middle? Ask your stylist if a jaw-length bob will suit your face shape. This length will accentuate a strong jawline and bring attention to your face. If your hair is generally straight, you will need to put a little effort into giving it body and texture. You can give it a soft wave with a curling iron. I also like using a sea salt spray to give it extra texture. Ask your stylist for product recommendations.

#30: Center-Parted Wavy Bob with Ombre

If you’re looking to shape a wider set face, try a center part. Symmetry is best for covering the width of your facial features. And it brings attention to the center of your face. I suggest brightening up your color with a golden blonde ombré. This will also soften your facial features.

#31: Long Shaggy Copper Hair

The biggest advantage of long shaggy hair is the low-maintenance style. Copper hair color has been a popular request lately. However, a former drawback is color fading. Color-depositing shampoos like Celeb Luxury’s “Viral” help to keep colors vibrant between visits.

Pay attention to the tones you like on yourself. That will help you pick a color that compliments your complexion. If you are in between options with some inspirational photos, they should be able to get the best hue for you.

#33: Vintage Style

When it comes time to try a new style, opt for a middle part for an exciting change; it can instantly change your look. If you’re worried a center part will drag you down, try adding curtain fringe or framing to soften it. For products, use a texture spray to give a modern finish.

Light brown color has become increasingly popular as a color request. If you decide to style your hair with a center part, you can create a lived-in look with curled ends. The drawback is that the style has evolved to a trendier style, but the pro is that it’s this era’s timeless style.

Voluminous Curly Cut with a Middle Part

#35: Voluminous Curly Cut

If you’re looking for a voluminous curly cut, try to find a stylist in your area that specializes in the Rezo cut. A bespoke technique that creates volume within the silhouette.

#36: Bright Ash Gold Mid-Length Hair with Soft Waves

Multi-dimensional hair is one of the best, more universal styles you can get. Bright, ash gold coloring on mid-length hair gives the illusion of thicker, fuller hair and suits all skin types due to the naturalness of the color. Don’t forget to ask your stylist to add soft, beachy waves to your look! This will also give you the illusion of thicker hair!

Shaggy Middle-Parted Curtain Bangs
Instagram @yukistylist

#37: Shaggy Curtain Bangs

Shaggy curtain bangs are an ongoing trend. You’re going to want to take time to style this haircut. As natural as it looks, it does require a bit of manipulation. Use hair products or blow-dry or comb your hair in the right direction. The universal rule is to brush all your hair in front of the ears and bang the area forward, towards your face. You will want to do this while your hair is still slightly wet so that it sets your style once it fully dries.

Middle-Parted Tousled Dark Blonde Mid-Length Hair

#38: Tousled Dark Blonde Mid-Length Hair

If you were considering how to rock the lived-in look, go for styles like a tousled dark blonde. Some women only highlight once a year, while others highlight throughout the year. Full, partial accent highlights work to maintain the intentional lived-in look. Consider speaking with a salon professional to help solve this problem.

#39: Dark Auburn Choppy Bob

Fall is in the hair, and mood boarding can help you get inspired for seasonal colors. A dark auburn choppy bob is a popular choice, but I recommend you come prepared with some photos.

#40: Peach Loose Curls

Try peach loose curls to spice up your blonde hair without too much commitment. Ask your stylist to add extra layers and texture for more voluminous curls if you can. Peach is a smart choice for blonde hair because it’s light enough that it won’t be too difficult to remove if you want to go back to blonde.

#41: Copper Mid-Length Hair

Try a copper mid-length hairstyle if you love warm tones. Copper tones compliment women with a warmer skin complexion. Part your hair in the middle and curl your tresses away to show off your facial features.

#43: Long Hair with Ombre

Long hair with an ombre is a great way to add a pop of color without the commitment of coloring the whole head. An ombre is easy to maintain, requiring no root touch-ups or maintenance appointments if correctly done.

If you want a lived-in look, scrunch in salt spray to bring out the natural texture. For a more refined look, use a one 1/4-inch curling iron. It also looks super cute, blown out smooth, or flat ironed!

#51: Long Precise Bob

Consider a long, precise bob. The cut is simple, and there’s beautiful drama in the angle by the front of the face. It’s eye-catching next to the soft and subtle round shape cut into the back.

#59: Long Layered Cut

A long layered cut is great for women with longer faces. It’ll give style and shape to otherwise long, boring locks. Having a part can bring symmetry to the entire look. But it can also draw out the asymmetric features of the face. Longer layers will help soften the look around the bottom and sides of the face.

#60: Lovely Long Bob with a Part Down The Middle

Go glam even in your comfort zone as you fashion the most elegant lob. Partnered with soft, beachy waves, this medium cut casually frames your face for a flattering effect.

Thick Hair with a Center Part

#66: Thick Hair with a Center Part

Thick hair with a center part is great for evening out the heaviness on one side. Many women end up having an uneven weight of hair from parting on the side. The center part allows for more face-framing layers and a more symmetric finished long hairstyle.

Long Curls with a Middle Part
Instagram @alyssarxs

#67: Long Curls

Long curls create loads of widening volume. This works well for slimmer face shapes. Instead of focusing on the height, which can make a slimmer face look more extreme, go for center part hairstyles. These fill out the areas we lack and amplify the shape in your stunning curls.

#68: Long Blonde Hair

Go for long blonde hair if you’re looking for a classic beach babe vibe. Add some waves and a vibrant money piece to compliment the texture and face-framing. Balayage is a great color choice if you’re a low-maintenance lady going for a bold look.

#69: Very Short Bob with a Center Part

Go for an edgy take on a very short bob with a center part. This style is best on fine to medium textures. Thick hair may need an undercut or a lot of texturing to keep the silhouette of this cut piece-y.
