The Middle Part vs. Side Part Debate Is Leaving Out 1 Important Contender: the Zigzag Part

Danielle Jackson

Over the last month, there's been a lot of talk about the way you part your hair. Here's the gist: recently, someone on the internet officially decided that side parts are out and middle parts are the new symbol of coolness, and people on both sides of the debate (including us) had some strong opinions. Yet, there's one style that's being left completely out of the conversation: the zigzag part.

Zigzag parts were popular in the '90s and early 2000s, often worn by stars like Christina Aguilera and Mandy Moore, but with all this talk about parts these days, we can completely see why they're making a comeback now. These kind of parts can add something extra to any hairstyle, and they work well for people who might think both side parts and middle parts are a little too plain for their liking.

We're seeing lots of people (rightfully) showing love for zigzag parts on TikTok, so we decided to give them a little more shine. If you're feeling nostalgic and you're in the mood to revisit a forgotten hairstyle, read ahead to see a few takes on the zigzag part trend that we love.
