How to Comb Hair

Q: Are men supposed to comb their hair to the left or to the right? I have been told that men should comb their hair over to the right and women to the left. Is this true?
 
man combing his hair to the right A: The left-right question stems from long traditions that called for certain differences in menís and womenís fashions and fashionability. For a long time, certain menís and womenís garments were made differently. Womenís blouses were made with the buttons on the left, with the buttonholes on right. Menís were constructed in reverse fashion. It was the same with trousers, jackets and other forms of clothing that were designed with menís and womenís varieties.
 
      Whether the fashion traditions inspired the grooming or it developed independently as a coincidence, it became customary that menís hair would be parted on the left (combing it toward the right side), and womenís (where appropriate) would be parted on the right.
 
      However, with the advent of unisex styles in both hair and clothing fashions, the question of left and right dominance has become more arbitrary. In some cases, there is still a difference, but in many cases the dominance of right over left has no bearing whatsoever.
 
      I would argue that if you are wearing a traditional menís haircut, you can follow the convention of parting your hair on the left side, but you neednít feel confined to this convention.
