How the middle part made me fall in love with my hair all over again

Believe it or not, less than a year ago I had a spontaneous idea to trade off my 24-inch long locks for a sleek and sexy asymmetrical bob. Scary, I know but I’m not kidding! Not only did I desperately want a new look but my after years of chemical and heat damage, a haircut was the only remedy to restore the health of my hair.
Am I loving the short do? Heck yes! To maintain the style of my hair, I try to visit my hair dresser every three months.

The only downside to my asymmetrical bob was having to only part it on one side. And as my hair grew out I felt like the side part was only making my face look rounder.
My hair dresser recently evened out the length of my hair and suggested I try parting it in the middle to elongate the shape of my face. So that I did.

I’m totally loving the vintage and chic vibe of this look and I’m especially digging how it frames my face. Training my hair to part precisely in the middle was a little bit difficult since I’ve been wearing my hair to the side for so long, but here’s what I’ve been doing to achieve a seamless middle part.

I begin by brushing my freshly washed hair back, and use a comb to draw a line down my scalp before blow drying it. Once my hair is completely dry, I use a hair straightener to guide my roots in place. Finally, I like to use a tiny pump of Dove Style+Care Frizz Proof Cream Serum to smooth out the strands and keep the part in place.
