For a more refined look perfect the hairstyle with a back-braid which works great for short and long hair. In Hervé Léger spring 2013 collection the part was styled up with a wet look finish. In an other interpretation of the wet side part, Custo Barcelona took it to the next level by using a copious quantity of gel into the hair and styled it into a sleek pony tail, creating an androgynous hairstyle. Aside from the more complicated look, the side part also looks great in a effortless, natural way, like the long side braid or the fish plait. Even if your hair is not long enough, you can still get this great, summer look by adding real human hair extensions for more volume and length. If braids are too much work, maybe twisting your hair is an option for you. Start at the side part, work it across the hairline, along the side of your head and pinn it at the rear. You can wear it loose or in a low pony tail/bun.
