How to Style Mid-Length Hair #3: Change Your Part, Sweetheart

There couldn’t possibly be an easier way of how to wear mid-length hair. Rearranging your part makes for the perfect, “je ne sais quoi” effect. People will notice a difference but won’t be able to put their finger on it and all thanks to a very subtle change with your comb and roots. The style is truly a no-brainer, so you can focus on making sure your strands are in mint condition. The pros love Biolage R.A.W. Re-Hydrate Mask - it’s a natural concoction with shea butter and Moroccan lava clay that turns dull hair into lustrous silk. Whether you’re feeling reminiscent of your younger grungier days with a deep side part or you’re digging wetlook runway vibes with a part that is dead central, treat your look to this insanely easy change-up.
