The classic Side Part is more popular today than ever. The look is cut clean on the sides with a longer bang, usually styled back. Wear it neat and tight or relaxed and side swept, it’s perfect for every occasion from landing the promotion to the big date.

Make it yours. 

  • 1

    Dampen the hair and comb it to part in the direction it naturally falls.

  • 2

    Select a guide comb for your Wahl clipper that will give you a nice clean look around the back and sides, such as a number 3 or 4. Note the hair on the sides and back of the head will stay shorter than the hair on top of the head.

  • 3

    Start cutting in front of the ear and work around the head clipping in an upward motion. Then using longer guide comb cut the next few inches up. Using a rocking, upward motion, blend in between the bottom and middle section. Note: do not clip above the part.

  • 4

    Use the clipper-over-finger technique to cut the hair in section 4 to desired length. Cut the bangs last. Use your clipper with a longer guide comb to blend sections 3 and 4.

  • 5

    Using the inverted clipper technique or a Wahl trimmer, clean up around the ears and the neckline.

  • 6

    Comb bangs at part to style back to one side.
