Want to try this trend? Here’s how to pull it off without looking like you just stepped out of Freaks and Geeks.

Step 1: Smooth your hair

Unless you’re feeling extra fond of the ’80s, you want a smooth, sleek foundation for your asymmetrical part, so start by brushing out any tangles in your hair first.

To give your hair a little shine, apply a small bit of smoothing cream like Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream. If you have particularly thin hair, skip the cream, as it can make your locks look more greasy. For more volume, try a boosting powder like Eufora Powder Lift.

Step 2: Part it

Hold a comb to the highest part of your eyebrow and part your hair above it, then work backwards with it through your hair to create a side part.

Step 3: Finish it off

Spritz on a finishing spray to keep your hair intact all day long.

Voila! You’re good to go.

This part has room for tons of variation, so play with it to determine your favorite style. If you want to add some extra flair, try using a colorful clip or a couple bobby pins on the wider side. To keep your hair out of your face, pull it into a ponytail or bun after making the side part.
