Parting Ways: The Easiest Trick To Update Your Look

If you're anything like us, the upcoming change in seasons means two things: September issues are on their way, and it's time to switch up our manes. But this year, we admit, we kind of like what's happening with our strands and not sure we want to take that extreme lock leap just yet (we're looking at you, Miley).
Luckily, the easiest way to mix things up on your dome is by simply switching up your part. We turned to one of our favorite style mavens, Diane Kruger, for a lesson in part diversity. Not only does she nail it every time, but she drastically changes her look without the major commitment. Here, check out the many faces of Diane and decide which way you sway.
The Messy Part
We like the casual elegance and girl-next-door vibe that a loose part creates. It's effortless yet still has some poise and polish.

The No Part
The no-part look is the ultimate in sophistication, showing off all of Diane's covetable features. Those cheekbones!

The Side-Part
She's Karl's original muse, so it's only fitting that she'd rock an extreme side-part every once in a while to showcase her glamour-girl status.

The Middle Part
There's something very approachable, but just a little retro about a classic middle part. Wearing her flaxen locks parted down the middle shows off Diane's casual (but still sexy) side.
