The simplest classic style can often make the most dramatic impact


Rocking a middle part is always in style. From photo shoots to a well-groomed interview and stage appearance, this gorgeous look is an essen­tial part of your pageant arsenal. It is all about having that super model red carpet vibe while you live out your glamour lifestyle dreams! As we all know in pageantry, every piece of your personal presentation is imperative to selling your brand, as well as your story. This hairstyle has become increasingly stylish because it looks effortlessly glamorous.

What You Will Need:

2 Inch Curling Iron

Chi Maximized Volume Hairspray

Metal Tooth Brush

Teasing Comb

Alligator Pin Curl Clips

Bed Headrush Shine Spray

Redken Hot Sets Spray

Step 1: Brush Out & Prepare

Begin by brushing out your hair, and then use your teasing comb or a paddle brush to add light volume before you pin curl your hair. Make sure that all of the pieces are smoothed out before you begin. The idea is to create a smooth style with depth throughout the waves. You will also want to add a heat protectant spray like Red­ken’s Hot Sets, which will also provide you with great curl enhancement.

If your hair does not hold curl well, I suggest blow dry­ing the Hot Sets into your hair and spraying Babyliss Mira­Curl generously throughout your hair before curling. You want to get in the habit of preparing your hair. This is one step even stylists miss from time to time, and it can prevent you from having a truly successful hair style. The better you prepare your hair, the easier the style out will be.

Step 2: Create the Part

Pay close attention when creating the middle part. Focus on creating a perfectly centered part that is clean and solid. Sometimes I even do a super light spray once I find the per­fect sectioning. This helps weigh that area of hair down to keep the part visible.

You will want to vary the part based on the thickness of your hair, and your face shape. With a rounder face, you can definitely rock a center part because it will add the illusion of symmetry to your face. This part also adds length to the face, which can be slimming. With a more square face, make sure that your part line is not too deep. You want to celebrate the angles of the face. If you have a more oval shaped face, you can take the part as deep as you want. This face shape is often the most ideal for this particular style.
