In the past few years, it has become quite popular for women to sport more than one hair color at a time; the combinations become more and more outrageous and daring, and this freedom of styling can only be embraced, because it means something very important: society has become more understanding and people are no longer compelled to follow a specific set of rules when it comes to their public appearance. Nowadays, you can be just as respected and admired even if you have pink and blue hair as long as what you do and how you behave is acceptable. And since we’re speaking about pink and blue hair, we’ve come nearer to the subject we want to approach today, and that is two tone hair color ideas.
We thought more of you might be interested in trying some of these new hair color trends, so we want to help you with a few two tone hair color ideas and give you a few tips about how to achieve them. To begin with, you have to understand the responsibility you’re taking on with a style like this, because it has to be maintained more often than other, simpler hair colors. And if you don’t have the time to do this, then you will end up with a nondescript hair color that will look like a sad experiment. Now we want to draw your attention to the first photograph we chose to exemplify the subject. You will notice that with two tone hair color, the haircut is also very important. Our first model opted for a very stylized and asymmetrical bob which is very short at the back and much longer in the front. There is an overlay resembling a bowl, or a more classic bob, and the long streaks of hair falling on the shoulders give it that special something. Here, the model didn’t opt for something very dramatic where hair color is concerned, and besides her beautiful, pure black hair color, she added a brownish, pinkish streak over her bangs.
This is a more unusual variation of two tone hair color, and her patch of color is quite unusual as well, because it has several nuances, including some blonde and even red. The second example of two tone hair color ideas is, as you can see above, more straightforward. The delineation between black and blue is clear; the model’s haircut resembles 80s haircuts with thick bangs, except her hair is straightened; having a pure black hair color basis, the model opted for a very intense blue for the bangs, which extend all the way to the middle section of the head. The color she sports can be very difficult to achieve, especially since you can notice some green or even purple streaks in there. She definitely has to go to the salon regularly, otherwise that color can lose its shine.
Finally, we want to present you another different type of two tone hair color ideas, one where the two colors intermingle more; in the picture above, the model opted for a more classic bob, except her bangs are very dramatic; they start on one side of the head, right on the edge, and sweep over the right eye and face. The main color she opted for is a very extreme platinum blonde, actually a very popular color these days; the second tone is a very raw pink, almost red, which she added in thin streaks at the front of the hair, where it frames her face. This simple trick turned her now-common hair color into something attractive and eye-catching. It is very difficult to achieve this style, and only a professional hair colorist can get you the right results.
All in all, you can experiment with whatever colors you want for two-tone hair colors, and you can even choose to have them in equal parts of the hair; you can just color your bangs or the underside of your bangs, the outer layer or inner layer of the hair, or even Cruella De Vil style, by having the two colors separated by your hair parting.
