Short hairstyle?

i have *almost* (so close! only a few more months growth!) shoulder length 3b hair, and normally part it down the middle for the first inch or so, and then the rest is just swept back (no part) this looks okay, but is there a better way to style it? also, it looks dumb parted down the middle all the way back

Anyone? :?

    Change your part to an inch or so off to one side. I wore my hair with a center part for years, and when I changed my part to the side it completely changed my look without clipping a lock!

    Sometimes I like to clip the front/top section back like some people do with their bangs.

    My hair is right above my shoulders, but it's pretty much wavy now, not curly, and I wear it straight most of the time (I know, bad girl). I part mine on the side, or just off-center. I can't part it in the middle because I have a cowlick and widow's peak. I've always heard that on the side is flattering for most people. When my hair decides it wants to go curly or I curl it myself, I don't really have a part. It's sort of zigzagged if that makes sense. That sounds like it would look amess, but it doesn't.
