The centre might be where hair sits if you want to rock a 60s or 70s vibe in 2012.. but for those looking for a part that offers up more of a fashion-forward vibe then your 2012 hairstyle is all about the side part!
Wear it left, right, up, down, wet, dry, when you’re in a hurry or taking your time… it doesn't matter. What matters is that in 2012, if you’ve got the hair to suit the styles, you move your hair part to the side.

The side part challenges the fringe / bangs to dominance in 2012, with the length of the hair sweeping across the forehead and the shorter part tucking behind the ear.
J. Mendel’s spring 2012 show used the style to great effect, with TIGI hairstylist Paul Hanlon creating a look that interpreted the part with a thoroughly modern haistyle of texture, waves and shiny, though not wet, product. When you look at the pictures you’ll see it’s a style that is visually stronger for those with long hair, or at least mid length hair.
This is one interpretation of the side part that is less dependent on your hair and more dependent on your face shape. Tightly slicked and inline with 2012′s wet hair look, this sharp parting has a masculine quality and works with everything from a short cut through to longer hair. Custo Barcelona worked with long hair for their spring/summer 2012 catwalk, working gel into the hair to give a head turning factor to an otherwise simple, androgynous hairstyle. At the rear they styled each model’s long hair / hair extensions into a sleek pony tail.
This is a great look If you pop in some leave in treatment oil instead of gel! That way not only is it stylish but you are treating your locks with some much needed love.. Coconut is my fav!
If the wet look is too much for you then try something along the lines of adding a clip..
This is a look I love doing! Its feminine, perfect for the office and is very versatile! Tucking the hair behind both ears, Lela Rose’s spring 2012 show complimented the side part with light texture and a hairline twist. It’s that twist that is the eye catching detail for this particular interpretation – it starts at the side part, is worked across hairline, along the side of the head, before being pinned at the rear.
If the side parting that’s worn long at the back and tight on the sides has a casual air, then it’s safe to say that this take on the style is very elegant!!
