New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to break out the bow tie and ready the pomade for a night of classic style. Whether you’re looking to reinvent your look before the ball drops or your guy friends have been bugging you for advice, why not try a different part?
According to an article written by ModernSalon.com, the type of part worn can greatly impact an overall look. We were particularly intrigued by the second of the three options discussed. The second look was dubbed “classy, clean and timeless.” We couldn’t agree more.
While men’s looks for 2013 featured a bit more volume especially near the front hairline, the sleek side part was more refined.
What you’ll need to achieve the look:
- A fine tooth comb

The sleek side part harkens to those seen in Bottega Veneta’s 2014 spring/summer show but less severe than the high part featured in the Dior Homme 2014 spring/summer show. The look falls on the opposite end of the spectrum from the platinum fringe of Calvin Klein’s 2014 spring/summer show.
The trick to master the look is applying enough pomade to hold the hair in place without weighing it down.
To truly evoke an air of sophistication, pair the sleek part with a white shirt, black bow tie and maybe even a pair of cuff links. Looks like the slick side part have a way of re-inventing themselves through the ages from the ‘20s version to Don Draper’s rendition of the ‘60s.
What screams 2014 more than timeless style?
