If you’re anything like I am, you’ve sifted through magazines and blogs and marveled at the beauty and wonder that is celebrity hair. Then, you wander into the “Stars are just like us” section and realize that while you and your favorite celebrity may both take out the garbage, you will never possess her flowing locks. So, I ask you, what about us peasants who don’t possess Blake Lively’s perfect, spun from gold hair or Kate Middleton’s hairstylist? What about us even lesser peasants who are unskilled in the hairdo department and can’t conquer even the simplest of hairstyles? Enter the world’s easiest hairstyle that anyone can adopt: a middle part.

I know what you’re thinking–aren’t middle parts patented by the Kardashian-Jenner family? Think again! I’m always conscious of my side part wandering from normal, tame territory into crazy looking, comb over territory. But, with a middle part, I’d feel chic and put together. I know changing your part can feel a little weird at first, but it’s summer and you deserve to experiment a little! If you’re not totally convinced yet, check out these

1. It Works With Every Face Shape

There are no excuses! Middle parts for everyone!

2. It Doesn’t Have To Be Prominent

Your middle part doesn’t have to be a reenactment of Moses parting the Red Sea. You can put your middle part a little to the side or even make it a little jagged so it looks less robotic. Or both like Penelope Cruz!

3. It’s Your Bangs’ Best Friend

Sienna Miller’s middle part frames her face so well that even her bangs are smizing.

4. It’s A Perfect Look For A Summer Festival

How perfect would this go with your flower crown or flowy summer garb? Also, if it’s good enough for L.C., it’s good enough for anyone.

5. It Looks Great With A Ponytail

For the woman who wants it all: hair off her sweaty neck and Kim Kardashian’s amazing ponytail skills. 

6. It Can Complete Your Retro Glam Look

Lily Collins obviously took a page out of our Audrey Hepburn style guide when she and her perfect brows flaunted this off center middle part.

7. Everyone’s Hairspiration, The Duchess Of Cambridge, Does It!

She puts the “mid” in middle part! Lame jokes aside, Kate Middleton and her hair are arguably two of the greatest wonders of the world and that should be reason enough to change your part.

Bonus: Boys Can Do It Too!
