Nobody saw this discussion coming: On TikTok, users are currently split into two camps - Generation Z and Millennials. Some criticize the supposed trends of the others. And thus almost trigger identity crises. Because suddenly the side parting, which was considered a reliable hairstyle by the millennial generation until the end, should be out. Instead, the trend of the hour: the middle parting.
The debate was triggered by a TikTok user who firmly believes: None: r looks better with a side part than a middle part. Those who wear side parting are only confessing that they belong to the millennial generation - that is to say, to be old, so to speak. The reactions were not long in coming. While some were offended, most responded to this announcement with humor. The side parting is not out, just proof that you are an adult, as a user “Mommahorsetales” finds. In addition, everything old is coming back as a trend. Generation Z oversize jackets and tube tops were worn by millennials as early as the nineties.
But apart from the in-out discussion on TikTok, what is true of the fashionable thesis that the middle parting is a trend and the side parting is a hairstyle of yesterday? While the question of the parting ultimately remains a matter of taste, the following three advantages of the middle parting can be noted in particular:
In addition, the middle parting stands for every face shape, from round to oval to oblong or angular. If you have an elongated face, you should only make sure not to style the hairstyle with a center parting too smooth, then nothing stands in the way of the trend look.
No matter whether you belong to the TikTok team of side parting opponents and declare the middle parting to be the trend hairstyle of the season, or stand by your side parting and don't want to tick it off after years of reliable wear because of an Internet discussion: One thing is certain that everything will come back. And the next generation will most likely be amused by the current trend towards parting in the middle, in order to differentiate themselves from the "old" with their own hairstyle (perhaps the side parting?). After all, that has always been the case.
