Men’s side part hairstyles and parted haircuts have been popular since the 1940’s. This is because the side part haircut is classy, clean, and professional, offering a classic look that is timeless. But modern parted hairstyles have also become popular, pairing the hard side part on top with a fade or undercut on the sides.

Best Side Part Hairstyles For Men
There are different ways to part your hair, but they all start with the type of men’s hair part you want and whether you want a hard part vs a soft part. There is the classic side part hairstyle, which incorporates a hard part that splits your hair, combs it all to one side, and slightly exposes your scalp.
Then there is the modern side part, where the parting of the hair is not as pronounced, resulting in loose flowing, textured top. The natural styling of short and long parted haircuts makes the cut flexible, and guys can style their hair into any number of cool hairstyles.
How To Part Your Hair To The Side
After determining which side part hairstyle you prefer, you must choose how short or long you want your sides and top. All side parts require shorter hair on the sides and longer hair on top, so the length of your hair is really a matter of preference and where you want to place the part.
To style your side part, apply gel or pomade evenly throughout your hair. For thin hair, a pomade is the better option. Now, brush your hair forward to find your natural part and then comb down the sides. As for the front, you can choose to brush straight to the side or brush diagonally to create some lift. You may even be able to create the quiff hairstyle.
Hair Products For Side Part
The best hair products for a side part depend on the style you want and your hair type. We suggest you pick a top-rated pomade, wax or clay for the perfect side parting.
Generally, for thick hair and a shiny finish, we recommend a good pomade from Suavecito, Layrite or Baxter of California. These pomade brands offer a strong hold with a medium to high shine for a slick finish. For a textured finish that will make your hair look more natural, wax or clay works better. Hair wax is generally medium to strong hold with matte to low shine, and is perfect for a loose part. Clay works best for guys who want their hair parted to the side but with plenty of volume and movement.
