Siblings and sociologists John and Catherine Walter have researched how a person's image is affected by his or her hair part. Whether you part your hair on the left or right side of your head -- or not at all -- influences how others perceive you and possibly even how you perceive yourself. The idea behind their theory is that your hair part alters how others interact with you, thus altering how you interact with them, and so on.
Warning! The theory is a tad bit sexist, but here’s a link that discusses the study.
This is the hair-part breakdown, according to the Walters:
Men who part their hair on the left are often popular and successful. People perceive them as strong.
Women who part their hair on the left are considered reliable and intelligent. It's a smart move for those who work in politics or business.
Men who part their hair on the right are seen as radical and open. These men should be strong enough to overcome the stigma against men with this part.
Women who part their hair on the right are viewed as gentle and feminine. Because it is a more traditional style, it can affect how seriously they are taken.
People who don't part their hair, can't part their hair due to baldness or use a center part come across as trustworthy and wise.
I don't know about you. But I like my hair parted to the left with not that much scalp showing. I really dislike all my parts showing after retightening it.
