Side Part Requirements
While the length of hair on the sides and neckline can vary, a classic side part shouldn't get too short: Start with a #2 or #3 buzzer setting and work up to a #3 or #4 on top. Work with your hair's natural shape to determine where you should part it.

How to Style a Side Part
1. Start with clean, towel-dried hair.
2. Use a blow dryer on high heat for longer hair if you want added volume.
3. Take a dime-sized amount of styling cream for a looser, casual look, or a firm clay or pomade it you want more volume and hold. Work the product into your hair, beginning at the roots and starting from the back of the head.
4. For a clean part, run a comb lengthwise from the back of the head to your forehead, then separate the hair. For a messier part, just separate with your fingers.
