A center part is a daunting concept—much unlike a side part, which is easy to hide behind, it opens your face up and puts your features front and, well, center. But the look doesn't have to be scary, and you certainly don't need to have a perfectly symmetrical face to pull it off. Let these ten flattering examples serve as inspiration for your next hair style.

Most half-up hairstyles work best with a side part or none at all, but Rachel's center part is a great complement to her bold makeup.

Nicole Richie
Side braids are all the rage right now, and they work with a center part, too. Copy Nicole's look by braiding down the hairline on both sides and bringing them together at the side to create a single braid.

Naomi Watts
Naomi's center part adds subtle volume to her layered bob. Tease your hair at the root for a similar look.

Lea Michele
Even Lea, who has blunt bangs, has played with a center part. But make sure to not part too far down the head because it can end up looking too severe.
