The first time I straightened my hair, I felt like a whole different person. Because straight hair has the power to transform you from drab to fab.

5. Side Swept

You know where you’re going wrong with your hair? You’re parting it wrong. If you feel like your hair is making you look boring and way older than your age, you’re probably parting it down the middle. The solution is quite simple, really. You just have to start parting it on the side. Parting your hair right on top of the middle of either eyebrow helps in creating asymmetry in your face, resulting in face-flattering angles. It is also a great way to grab attention and enhance your features.
