CENTRE PARTING

UK Ceative Director, Bruce Masefield explains that the centre parting has the ability to evoke youthfulness, "There is nostalgia to it," he says, but whilst it's very on-trend and minimalist for autumn/ winter, the look may not suit everyone. "It works well on an oval or heart-shaped face," Bruce says, "Round or long faces can wear it too but it may work better slightly off-centre. The great thing about the centre parting is that it always freshens up the face." 

HOW TO GET THE LOOK BY BRUCE MASEFIELD

Step 1: Create a centre parting with a pin tail comb - draw a straight line from the front hair line to the back. 

Step 2: Apply a heat protector such as Sassoon Professional, Heat Shape throughout the lengths of the hair, and dry smooth with a hairdryer using a paddle brush to ensure a really sleek finish.

Step 3: Straighten the lengths of the hair with hair straighteners for maximum shine and polish.

Step 4: Rub a pea-sized amount of serum between fingers such as Sassoon Professional, Diamond Polish, before smoothing over your hair and tucking behind ears.

Step 5: Carefully gather your hair into a sleek ponytail and tie with an invisible band.
