If Gen Z's recent stance against side parts didn't make it clear enough (we maintain that they can be cool if done correctly), hair parts are wildly powerful.
They have the ability to totally transform your look, taking it from polished and sultry to chic and undone with a simple flip. It's definitely a quicker route to changing up your vibe than going from blonde to brunette, that's for sure.
Don't believe us? We've got proof. Here are 17 celebs who prove the power of the part...
Hadid's glossy, soft waves work perfectly with either part. We can't choose a fave.
Bieber is gorgeous with both, but damn, the side part shows off the brows beautifully.
Shahidi rocks a centre part for a fresh vibe and a side sweep for a more glam one.
Gomez flips Shahidi's approach, embracing a flip for day, and a striking centre-parted situation for night.
Robbie with a middle part? The epitome of beachy beauty. Robbie with a side part? Polished perfection.
Mitchell's preference? A centre part for tousled texture and a side one for sleek strands.
Hale's face is framed stunningly by both, but we love the space the centre split allows her bushy brows.
Whichever part she opts for, there's no doubt Mendes wins the superlative for 'glossiest hair'.
Anyone else getting Elena Gilbert vibes from the centre part and Katherine Pierce ones from the side?
Hudgens is something of a part chameleon, switching often to suit her desired aesthetic.
Reinhart sans her Riverdale pony? Yes, please. She looks great with a down-do (regardless of part), after all.
Roberts' consistent makeup aesthetic showcases just how the striking effect of a part can be.
To all the side parts we've loved before: sorry, but we're obsessed with Condor's sleek, chic middle one.
There are side parts, and then there are super deep side parts like Lovato's. Utter wet-look perfection.
Hough is definitely a hair chameleon, but our fave look has to be her vanilla blonde centre-parted bob.
Jenner proves both parts can be very glam, using centred for a sleek look and side for extra volume.
Hadid is heaven no matter what; that being said, her deep side part is something of Old Hollywood magic.
