Well, I went back to the part on the right side (hair goes to left) like the first pic below. I know it's going against the swirl at my crown, but this is the way the front seems to want to go. If I have to choose between the front or back, I'd rather have the front looking the best.
I got a much-needed haircut last night, but I had it parted on the left when it was cut. Does it matter if I change which side I part it on after getting it cut. It's just a typical, men's tapered cut with a side part. I'm rocking the right-side part today, and it seems to be working.
