Yesterday, when i side fringe (or bangs as you call them in the US) just wouldnt sit right and i had no time to wash my hair again.

So, for the first time since i was about 10..i put my hair in a middle parting.
For some of you, this is no big deal…
But i have had my side fringe for ages and always laughed at how my hair looked with a center parting.
I did the “Lauren Conrad plaits”
What do you think?
I was actually surprisingly happy with it.

If you’re wandering where i am..i was helping out in my mums shop “The Frock Exchange” yesterday in Bath city.
I will do a blogpost on it because if yoou are ever in Bath..or you live there. You should definitely check it out.

  13. You look so nice with a middle parting, it really suits you :)

  14. Your hair looks really nice and hippy chic. The middle parting really goes with the loose waves and the top you're wearing. I was wondering where you took the photos, I was thinking "why does she have a CCTV monitor and a PDQ machine in her house???" lol!

  23. It looks so cute on you! But you always look great :)

  24. pretty! i prefer it! <3 x

  25. you're beautiful

  26. Jean

    So this more often your face looks gorgeous uncovered.

  27. this makes u look more girl next door- and the side part is more sultry
    so this is cute- mayb a day look and the side part cud be a night look :P

  28. so cute you should do this more often :)
    It suits you too :)
    I bet you can do anything with your hair like dye it green and you will still look nice :(
    So lucky :P

  29. J

    You definitely pull it off, looks great! x

  30. adorable!!

  31. Ali

    wow… lucky to be able to pull it off
    do you use mac msfs to make your face so glowy? am thinking of buying one coz i really love the 'lit from within' look!

  32. I prefer it! Looks great.x

  33. It definitely suits you… I even like your hair more this way than your "normal" one. This one makes you look younger and fresher, I think!

  34. Mrs. W

    aw! it looks great! and I love how my friends 'across the pond' called braids 'plaits'. too cute! ; )

  35. Caz

    I think it looks cute and you have gorgeous long hair to make it work well :)

  36. it suits you very well!!! I actually like this better than your side bangs. I know what you mean, and I definitely can't do middle part, because it will look awful on me.

  37. LOVE your hair! You look like a beter version of an Olsen twin girl!

  38. I really love it, you should do it more often! Also, I was going to say I love the room of wherever you are, that's neat your mum has a shop!

  39. lola

    really really it

  40. Ondine

    yes yes yes! dare I say I prefer it to the side parting……?!

  41. Elle

    i like it, there isn't enough middle parting love! I have always had mine like that i look strange otherwise. Elle x

  42. u look gorgeous…!…both side and middle part works 4 u ..but i think mid part woks best :)
    like u, i've always had a side bangs…its a big deal for me to have it part in the middle
    i've always tried to do the mid part but it looks weird…but maybee if i do it like u(loren conrad braids)it might work

    thanks alot 4 the post

  43. it looks really nice like that, i no how you feel i try parting mine down the middle and im alwys ummming and rring

  44. Angel

  45. I think you could wear your hair any way you want. it'll always look gorgeous.

    Hey you look lovely!!! and may i know whats the lip combo you use? It has a natural peachy tone in the picture!

    PS: You really not thinking about making videos? You should!! I'll totally wanna watch it:)


  70. @Anon (Jaded_lauren) – Hey lovely!I was wearing the new Colour Crafted lippy from the colour craft collection at mac with Babysparks dazzleglass on top :) x

  71. Lyd

    Your hair is lovely, really.
    I have read in one of your posts that your samsung phone cuts out the calls in like 10 mins…MINE DOES TOO!!! so IT IS the phone…I thought it was the elevator just outside my room that gave me poor signal!

    Also, how do you find the garnier eyes roll on? I have given it a try, but haven't noticed any change so far… :S

    can you reply on my blog? it's hard to keep track with the 10000000000000000 comments you get on yours :)

  72. what makeup are you wearing on ur face, you look glowing?

  73. @littlemissmakeup – I was wearing daft pink blush from the new mac colour craft collection on my cheeks/cheekbones :)

  74. theyve sold out of that now online, gutted. Im contemplating either gentle mineralized blush or moon river mineralized blush duo as maybe a dupe, what do you think?

  75. Lisa

    Damn you've made me want that blush now!!! You look so glowy, what foundation are you wearing if you don't mind me asking? Your skin looks flawless!

    Yeah your hair really suits you parted in the middle – very cute, especially with the LC braids :)

    Loving your blog btw, have just discovered it! x

  76. I love the hair!Its gorgeous,I want to try it out myself but mine wont look nearly as good,its not long enough :(

  77. Kerry

  78. kati

  79. MW

    so pweety ;D

  80. Your face is how cutie[=

  81. Your skin looks amazing here, your so pretty

  82. Lisa

    I know exactly what you mean about it being a big deal. Decided after years of a side parting i would go centre and I was so conscious initially! But growing to love it now and think it suits my face better anyway.
    Your hair looks wicked.

    Lisa (from UK)

  83. I think this looks great! I've been wanting to try that myself for a while but I haven't ever gone for it, I'm not sure if it will suit me but I'm willing to give it a try :}.
    p.s I love your blog, I found it by google images, I searched "middle parting" and found two pictures of you. I became so interested that I decided to create a blog for myself. Btw I love the plaits and I'm from the UK. :}

  84. I would loveee to see your moms store
    Im so jealous
    plus your hair looks fabulous, trying out the middle part myself

  85. Heya love ur blog ….where is ur top from its really nice and would it still be in stock …Thanks x:D

  86. I really love this! I started using a center parting after growing my fringe out and I'm really getting into it. They look more mature I think!

  87. PERFECT! you look absolutely AMAZING Zoe! bloody gorgeous girl.

  88. Melanie

    I really love this look on you.. You have inspired me to try this myself.. thank you!!! :) xoxo

  89. looks prettyyy! :D

  90. Lim

    oh … very very nice … so cute. I really like your style./Kissing Games|/

  91. Chloe

    Makes you look your age, in the nicest way possible. You look very mature and beautiful x

  92. Sol

    U look great! its funny cause I just did the same a couple hours ago with my hair and looking for other ways to do my hair with the middle parted bangs and found ur pic! My comment is probably really old but its good to know that im not the only one struggling with the change :D

  93. Alice

    I google imaged 'Lauren Conrad Plaits' to see them in more detail and the first picture came up;) I love this hairstyle on you, it looks really pretty.
