5 minutes

Apply a gel evenly to damp hair. Using a medium heat setting, blow dry the hair. When hair is mostly dry, part hair, and finish drying, using the air flow to direct hair where needed. Finish with a pomade or a texture spray, and use your fingers to position and style the hair on either side of the part.

5 minutes

Towel dry hair. Add a curl taming cream or mousse specifically for curly hair. Let hair air dry, or use a blow dryer and diffuser while scrunching hair for faster drying and tighter curls.

What to tell your stylist

Love this haircut? Here's what to tell your stylist so you can get this look.

"I’m interested in a side part haircut for my child. We'd like to keep the top longer, allowing for versatility in styling, and have the sides slightly shorter for a neat appearance. Please ensure the top is left long enough to experiment with different styles, such as slicked back, tousled, or combed neatly to one side."

If you're unsure about the best type of side part for your child, don't hesitate to consult with your stylist on the options that will best suit your child's hair texture and face shape.
