Gen Z vs. Millenials: Hair Edition



A debate is raging on TikTok that is even more divisive than politics. In fact, it's about how you divide the hair on your head.

Gen Z'ers believe that center parts are where it's at. They think that your side part makes you look like an Old! Meanwhile, Millenials + Gen X + Gen Y are into side parts.

America is split... down the center and down the sides!

Which way do u part your hair?

Center
194(21.4%)
Side
475(52.4%)
Both
189(20.9%)
Neither
48(5.3%)


Ready for some hair wank? what's your hair look like now, ONTD?

i usually go for a side part but i switch it up depending on the vibes i'm going for. but usually even my "center" part is slightly of center because i cannot be bothered to get it perfect.

i am due for a color refresh so i think i will do that tonight. my husband trimmed my hair a couple months ago and it turned out pretty good, but he was nervous and afraid to cut so it took forever. i'm going to try to encourage my natural waves and give my hair a break from heat styling again
My mom insisted on parting it where it naturally parts when I was a kid. So I've always had a center part. Everything else feels awkward to me.

But my hair is now usually in a ponytail so it doesn't even matter!
That majority of my life, I've had shortish hair... now that I'm in my thirties, I've let it grow and it's down to almost my butt and the side part is strong. However, I felt called out in a tiktok and tried the centre part — not sure how I feel about it, but it interesting.
I'm on the cusp of millenial/gen Z (1996)and I side part my hair! but thats just because a middle part makes me look like Weird Al
OMG THAT'S WHO I LOOK LIKE WHEN I MIDDLE PART

My hair parts naturally on the side, so I never had a centre part.
Side-part because middle-part makes my brows look really bushy. Idgi, they look good when I side-part so it's not a matter of plucking.
I'm usually a side parter, but the side started thinning so I'm middle parting for now.
I have a widow’s peak and an aggressive cowlick, so my hair naturally tends to a side part. It would take nothing short of an act of god to get it to stay centered. 😂
I think the only time the side-part looks dated and old is when someone still has those thick tapered bangs of the mid 2000s. My hair is really long, about to my ribs, but I don't have any bangs so if I side part it, I still just look like a hippie mermaid.

Whenever I have bangs tho, I always cut them myself, and they kind of middle part on their own. I usually use Sienna Miller in Alfie and Jen Aniston in Rock Star as my reference photos.
i haaaate I'm late to this post. I really need some hair advice. Due to fuck ass Covid, i've been having ot color my own hair with one of those Loreal color boxes and i have fucked my hair up!!! I don't know how to get rid of that brassy color where my roots are.
Do you have access to some Olaplex? And some sort of purple toning stuff?
I bought some! I'm gonna try it but kinda scared to lol
I hate this debate lol it really does depend on the color of your hair AND the shape of your face/head. Come on.
As a zillennial (although the 90s didn't come to where I live until like the year 2000 lmao) middle parts are SO unflattering on 99% of people. The highlighting of asymmetry!
I can't do middle-part because in the middle, there is a cowlick. There's no way that it's going away. LOL
Uhm.. my hair parts where it naturally parts 'cause it's I dunno... your natural hairline?
I do both. If I want more side-swept bangs then I do a side-part but if I want curtain bangs then I'll part it in the middle (esp for putting it up in a ponytail).

But honestly, this whole debate is stupid bc some people just look better with one or the other, so who cares which they do.
