What does your hair part say about you? Other than serving as evidence that you actually comb your hair, you probably think it doesn't say much about you. Well, according to the Hair Part Theory, there maybe more than meets the eye.

The Hair Part Theory suggests that in addition to keeping your hair out of your eyes, your part actually affects the way others perceive you. (Awesome ... yet another way in which we need to start scrutinizing ourselves!)

According to this theory, a left hair part draws unconscious attention to the activities controlled by the left hemisphere of the brain. Traditionally, these brain functions have been linked to masculinity (analytic stuff and endlessly talking about themselves).

A right hair part, on the other hand, draws unconscious attention to the activities controlled by the right hemisphere of the brain. As you've probably already guessed, the right hemisphere controls the feminine functions (emotional stuff and mother-resentment).

As the thinking goes, if you want to emphasize the more masculine parts of yourself, you should part your hair on the left. And if you want to emphasize your femininity, part your hair on the right.

While the Hair Part Theory smells a lot like pseudo-science, it does make me wonder what it would mean to have a part-preventing cowlick on one side of your head.
