Personally, I absolutely adore the concept of slicking hair down and using eye-liner along the parting – it’s really innovative and quite exciting, but I wonder what the reality of applying it is? And, maybe more importantly, removing it! If you want to give it a go, you would be best to apply some serum to get your hair really sleek before tying it back. There is no hard and fast rule about where the parting needs to go – it would look just as beautiful on the side as it would in the middle, but I think you’d really need to take your hair off your face and keep it bound and the back otherwise you run the risk of someone pointing out you have ‘something in your hair’…the look needs to be dramatic and statement! I’d love to see this look with red liner, purple or a really shocking blue and think it would work especially well on ashy white blond as the contrast would be very marked.

If you decided to give it a go, send me your pic at and I’ll publish a selection.
