Hair trends on the red carpet typically go by way of style — updos, waves, slick ponytails, and more. But, at this year's Oscars, the trend wasn't about the 'do, it was about the part.

Center parts were trending on the red carpet — which makes sense because they're also trending IRL — but it was interesting to see them in a more elegant and sophisticated setting. Stars showed off just how versatile these parts can be with curls and blowouts, updos and even man 'dos. So, for anyone who says middle parts are boring, we direct your eyes to the following stunning stars to prove just how wrong that sentiment truly is.

Chloë Grace Moretz showed off our favorite way to wear this part: loose, volumized, beachy waves. To create that loose texture, hairstylist Gregory Russell used Matrix Style Link Texture Builder spray on Chloe's hair.
