The Great Divide


THE NO PARTING PARTING

"A parting can completely change the dynamic of your face,” says Bruce Masefield who created four looks for The Great Divide series on Get The Gloss. “The no parting parting is a ‘suits all’ look which enables you to create a subtle break in the hair without being too definite. The look is timeless and looks effortless. It’s less about bed-head and more about soft, chic hair. Hair should have a beautiful texture and a dishevelled finish, but shouldn’t feel over-styled. Think laid-back, lived-in and un-done”.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK BY BRUCE MASEFIELD:

Step 1: Blow dry hair smooth, and brush hair back before letting it fall into a natural divide. Do not perfect the line.

Step 2: Use a wide-barrel curling iron or styling wand, take 1-inch pieces of hair and wrap around the barrel. Release the curl after about 5-10 seconds.

Step 3: Let the curls cool; playing with the curls when they are warm will just make them drop.

Step 4: Separate the curls using your fingers, pulling gently down to give an effortless and dishevelled finish.

Step 5: Spritz your hands with a sea salt or dry shampoo, such as a Sebastian Drynamic and rub down the mid-lengths and ends to enhance teased textures which will fall elegantly down around the face.
