Zigzag Parting

close formula

 This one gets points for originality! Julianne Hough’s insane zigzag part stole the show at last night’s American Music Awards. Go-to stylist Riawna Capri of Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood designed this unique look, that takes a bold, somewhat slanted approach to the traditional center part. The finished look is sleek, eye-catching and showed off her beautiful ashy blonde shade perfectly. Here’s how Riawna did it!

Start with dry, straight hair. Create a deep angled part in the shape of a V. The key is to brush that piece forward and smooth it down with UNITE TRICKY Spray Waxto keep the part clean of flyaways.


Next, do the same thing by creating another deep V, brush that piece forward and smooth down with UNITE TRICKY Spray Wax. Continue to do the same until you have created the size you want.

Next, tie all the hair from behind the ear into a ponytail, that way you don’t mess up the parting. Then take each side and add it by placing a hair tie it to the pony very carefully. The trick is, you want to make sure to have all the hair brushed forward to disguise any scalp lines. This is the key to NOT having it look like the 90s zigzag part.


For the mini bun, loop her short hair once, allowing the ends of the hair to come off to the right side in an upward 45 degree angle.
