Side Swept VS Side Part Hairstyles

For some people, a side swept hairstyle is the same as a side parted hairstyle. This is a great level of confusion given that the two hairstyles are fundamentally different. Before you make the same mistake, read on and make a choice between them.

Side Swept Hairstyles

In side swept hair styles, one combs or sweeps the hair using styling products to one side of the head. The act of sweeping the hair to one side is a simple one which many stylists can perform comfortably.

In these styles, the hair is kept short. In most cases, the hair is kept at an inch or thereabouts to allow for easy sweeping and styling. The hair at the center of the head is swept over shorter hair at the sides of the head.

Keeping Side-Swept Hair

Side swept hair can be easily kept owing to its short nature. Besides the high shine hair wax or the pomade, this style of hair requires very few hair products.

Once the hair has been styled as required, the individual does not need to do much rather than wait till the next styling session (which, for many, is the next day). Another trait of this hairstyle is that the hair is swept into a single direction at all stages.

The Side Part

Just like the side sweep, the side part requires keeping of longer hair at the top of the head and shorter hair on the sides. The main difference between the two styles is the length of hair at the top of the head. The side part has longer hair at the top of the head compared to the side sweep.

Hair is simply parted to the side without necessarily sweeping it there. Some space is left to the hair to grow. It means that the hair does not need to touch the shorter regions.

Keeping Side Parts

Keeping a side part may be a little more difficult than keeping the side sweep owing to the differences in the hair length. The longer hair in the side part requires more volume in terms of the amount of hair products that goes into caring for the hair.

Also, getting a style from a side part is more difficult than when handling a side sweep as, often, one does not use much gel for the styling.

Making a Choice

Both hair styles are different versions of the same approach and will depend upon the amount of hair you wan to have at the top of your head. If you prefer short hair that can be easily styled with a comb, go for the side sweep.

If, on the other hand, you prefer your hair a bit longer to allow for more styling, the side part is definitely your thing. Whatever it is you may choose, beware of the fact that both hairstyles require occasional visits to the barbershop to allow for keeping their lengths in check. The sides of the head with shorter hair also require consistent visits.
