When you picture split colored hair, or hair that’s sporting two shades right next to each other, you’re probably thinking of Cruella de Vil. Well, think of evil puppy murderers no more. This split colored hair trend has taken off on Pinterest and with good reason.
Split colored hair can range from statement trend rainbow colors to sophisticated natural shades. Below are some of the most popular ways to wear the look. How cool would these colors look in a box braids bun?!
Which is your favorite split colored hair look?
Black and bright neon shade
The punky statement look of neon hair next to black hair is perfect for people with naturally black hair. It’s a unique look for half the effort! And the black half helps the bright shade pop all the more.
This look also works well with the pastel hair trend. Contrasting pinks with cool blues look stunning.
Bright and pastel
For the contrast queens out there, a bright shade like ruby red looks stunning next to a pastel shade like granny grey blue. Or any other bright and pastel combination looks stunning, for that matter.
Another common look is to find some of the brightest rainbow shades you can and wear them next to each other. They’ll look stunning if you braid them together.
Platinum and dark
Another look is to go blonde next to a dark brunette for a unique, yet slightly more conservative, look. You could split it down the middle, have one shade go over the center or have only one chunk blonde or dark.
These are some popular ideas to get you started, of course. Feel free to experiment on your own. You could even combine blazing orange with pastel pink, if you wanted. Don’t shy away from pigtails with this cute split colored hair look either!
Getting this look is a very straightforward process. It’s a matter of dying the sides of the head separately. Make sure to brush and clip the hair apart, dividing evenly where you want the different colors to go. This is usually down the center, like tying pigtails. Bleach any hair you want to have a bright rainbow color, if needed, as rainbow shades show well on only light hair.
