There’s been lots of talk lately about the “wob” or wavy bob, but I’ve been noticing that a lot of wavy bobs actually just have one wave, a symmetrical s-curve that tucks in at the cheekbone, softly emphasizing bone structure and breaking up the straight line of the cut. This single wave is more structured and strategic than a beachy tousle but still looks effortless. Click the style notes to learn to create it. –Laura Martin

centerpart

My StyleNoted colleague, Michelle Rotbart, is convinced that center-partings are going to be big this year (see post below). With the seventies craze continuing to flower, her trend forecast is probably right. You might be thinking, “great, who can’t do a middle part?!” But it is one of those styles that is so super simple that it can make or break your whole look. The problem is that unless you have perfectly symmetrical features it is going to highlight every imperfection of your profile. Not to worry, I have some great tips on how to wear this classic and soon to be trending style in the notes. — Kelly Rowe

middle parts

By now, the ‘70s have been emulated in fashion for more years than the actual decade existed. A bit over-done? Maybe. But there has to be a reason the cool kids keep coming back to the groovy era. And for me, that reason is the glamorous, rock n’ roll hair, including a yesteryear trend, the middle part. While the side part has reigned supreme the past few seasons, the middle part is definitely making it’s way back. Especially since everyone is rocking tousled, relaxed hair. A middle part is great for giving your face symmetry and even brings focus right to your eyes. And best yet, this trend is so easy to recreate. Think your ready to go down the middle?
