No need to dig out the scissors or make a drastic change to your hair this season. There’s one fall hair trend that works on just about every hair type and length — the side part. We get inspiration from some of our celebrity hair crushes, plus the how-to to get your started.

Emma Watson

With her
short, tomboy haircut, it might seem like the English actress would be limited in her hairstyle choices. Not so. This fashionable slick lets her avoid too mature of a look and is totally suitable for her age.

How to get the look:

“This look, which is perfect when your hair is starting to grow back, starts out with wet hair. Create a neat part with a comb, setting it with an easily-workable pomade. Once in the hair, the product sets and leaves behind a wet-hair effect. Once slicked back, the hair is tucked behind the ears using a comb,“ says Didier Bichon, hair stylist and owner of Garcons Coiffeurs. The result is a neat and elegant look but be forewarned — its emphasis on the face requires a flawless makeup job.

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston always has gorgeous hair, no matter which way she parts it. Her straight and golden hair is most often parted down the middle but we’re loving this part on the side.

How to get the look:

“This style is very easy to reproduce, but the trick is not to part the hair before it’s dried! You want to bring a little volume to the top, and to do so, you have to work the roots against the natural flow of your hair. Parting the hair is the last step in order to maintain volume” explains Bichon. The contrast between the color of the roots and the ends helps to add depth and multiplies the volume effect of this look. We also love how Jennifer keeps her hairstyles polished, and this look embodies the trend while still looking classic.
