Mother hath spoken. And who are we to question her? No stranger to faking hair cuts and styles (for example faking a bob at The Eras Tour premiere), this time she styled her bangs to a side swept style and paired up with soft brushed out waves with a hint of retro, 1950’s touch.

Hollywood glam is what the Greys Anatomy actress turned up with at the Emmy Awards this year. The do looks fun to replicate for a day out with your friends or a solo date.

The side part has certainly proven itself to be highly versatile. Whether the mane is long or short, straight, curly or wavy, there’s a way to make it look flattering on all types. If you’re one who was already in on this little not-so-secret secret then congratulations, and if like me you’re someone who has always stuck to the middle part, maybe give one of these a try.
