Zigzag Parting: 90S Hairstyle Trend Has Never Looked So Chic

 

In a well-known online encyclopedia, the entry on the “zigzag pattern” states that the print is a “pattern of short and straight stretches that are always lined up at the same angles so that their ends describe two parallel lines or arcs.” Sounds honest quite complicated. The lightning bolt pattern is actually super simple.

This is probably one of the reasons why the zigzag pattern is one of the oldest known decorative patterns of mankind and can be found on numerous ancient buildings and sculptures.

Zzigzag part from the 90s is chicer than ever

Admittedly, we wouldn't call the 90s antiquity. The zigzag pattern also played a major role in the decade - not in terms of architecture, but in terms of hairstyle trends. We are of course talking about the so-called zigzag vertex.

The hairstyle, in which the parting is not styled as a straight line, but in the shape of a lightning bolt, adorned many a head 30 years ago and made every hairstyle, no matter how simple, a hairy eye-catcher.

The great thing about it: Because the hairstyle trend was only characterized by the parting, the look could be worn with a wide variety of hair lengths. The zigzag parting looked just as cool on long hair as it did on a short pixie cut.

But after its peak in the 90s, it was quiet about the fancy parting for a long time - until now. Because in autumn 2021 the hairstyle trend is back. And it's as chic and elegant as seldom before.

We rediscovered the parting with influencer and content creator Alessa Winter. She wears the hairstyle for the casual and slightly rough autumn look, consisting of boots, skinny jeans, and an aviator jacket.

What makes Alessa Winter's variant of the 90s trend modern and cool in autumn 2021? Instead of a tight zigzag shape, she chooses large jags. Because the hairstyle trend consists of only three to four points, it looks much more elegant and also more adult than the small and shrill version of the 90s. Also because the Berliner only gently teases the back of the head and styles the rest of the hair in a sleek way.

An effect that is supported by the subtle colors in Alessa's look. We would rather not combine the hairstyle trend with unusual patterns or bright colors. Minimalist fashion trends in simple colors and restrained make-up are better.

Hairstyle trend: this is how you can create a zigzag parting at home

  1. For the 90s hairstyle in a modern look, first, comb your hair straight back with a comb-over the top of the head and hold it at the back of the head with one hand.
  2. Then you take the thin end of a stick comb with your other hand and draw a zigzag line with about three points from front to back. It is best to place the strands of hair on the corresponding side of the head after each prong so that there is no mess.
  3. When the parting is done, secure the rest of the hair with an elastic band or a clip, or leave it open. Make sure to smooth the hair and fix it with a spray.
