Middle Part.

6:29 PM

In junior high, I remember having an in-depth conversation about middle parts with a lady I babysat for. (Now let's keep in mind that I was at the peak of my extremely long and painful awkward stage. But that's a story for another day.) We decided that it pointed STRAIGHT to your nose and was in no way flattering. This is when I switched to a side part and left my hair there forever. I just have never been able to bring myself to part my hair down the middle.

Until Saturday.

I tried it. First time since 8th grade. Sent my sister a picture asking if I could show my face in public.

It was fun doing something different, but I still haven't made up my mind about it. I think if I can keep it from going super flat on top, I'd feel a lot better about it. I know, I know. My life decisions are really rough.


How do you feel about middle parting your hair?

Also, t minus 5 days until Christmas Extravaganza 2011 begins. So excited I can hardly stand it!

  1. That's the same reason I side part too, since middle school! I just can't bring myself to change it either- I'm way to self conscious of my nose!

  2. I love it!!! I think as long as your hair has some good volume and waves the middle part is pretty!!!

  3. I've seen a lot more middle parts in pictures of people. Like the person above said: volume and waves. Also...I think one would need to have some makeup on. Cause it's going to point straight to the face...so that's probably why I shouldn't ever do it.

  7. I think the middle part looks great in that picture! I also have had a side part for as long as I can remember, but I have flat hair. I agree that volume on top is key to making that middle part look good!

  8. It looks good on you! I'm with you on the going flat on the top part. If I could get my hair to not fall really flat when I part it in the middle, I'd do it.
