Torn between two hair colors? We understand the struggle. With so many hair color trends to try, it can seem like a near-impossible task to pick just one! Luckily, the latest hair color trend is all about embracing more than one hue—and we’re not talking about using a temporary hair color spray. Half and half hair is a thing, and we’re totally here for it! Read on to learn what exactly a half and half hair color is, how you can get the look for yourself, and a few hair care tips for maintaining your new ‘do.
A half and half hair color is just what you’re likely imagining—two hair colors, equally split on either side of your head. The idea is to have a crisp, clean line down the center of your head for a symmetrical look. Yes, this hair color trend certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, but those who are looking to try something fun and bold with their hair will find there are few options that fit the bill better. There are quite a few ways to rock a half and half hair color, from subtle to high contrast. It’s totally customizable—after all, you get to pick your two colors.
Want to rock a half and half hair color for yourself? You’ll want to head to the salon for this one, as it is key that each color is expertly placed for its symmetrical appearance. Be sure to bring plenty of inspiration pictures and brainstorm color combos beforehand!
Speaking of color combos, we have some inspiration for you right here! While the options are endless, we’ve compiled a list of 10 half and half hair color ideas for you to consider.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #1: Lavender and pastel blue. Bring on the pastels! These two cool-toned shades are ideal for those who prefer a subtler take on the trend.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #2: Silver and platinum. Want to make a statement? Combine silver and platinum, arguably two of 2019’s most coveted hair colors.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #3: Black and white. Does this color combo ring a bell? We promise it won’t make you a villain—but you will be guilty of a high-fashion mane!
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #4: Red and black. There’s just something about crimson and black that creates the ultimate edgy, #baddie appearance. Don’t mind if we do.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #5: Purple and pink. Feeling extra girly? Give a purple and pink half and half hair color a try to amp up the romantic vibes. We particularly love this look when done with pastels.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #6: Platinum and peach. Another subtle option for half and half hair, this combo reminds us of a creamsicle!
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #7: Black and gray. Calling all rocker girls, this one is for you. This combination of colors will create a smoky look.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #8: Coral and teal. One of our favorite color combos (for more than just half and half hair), coral and teal are two shades you wouldn’t think would work, but totally do! This is a great option for those who want a highly-contrasted look.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #9: Burgundy and platinum. Speaking of high contrast, here’s another option for you! We’re seeing heart eyes and getting red velvet cake vibes with this half and half hair color idea.
Half and Half Hair Color Idea #10: Green and black. Last but not least, why not use your half and half hair color as an opportunity to give green strands a go? We love them when paired with a blue-based black.
Of course, if you plan to try a half and half hair color, you’re going to want it to look its best. Here are a few hair care tips to keep your two-toned mane in check.
Grown out roots are never a good look, but this is especially the case if you have a half and half hair color. It’ll completely disrupt your line of symmetry! Make sure to schedule regular touch-ups with your colorist in advance, so you don’t run into a mane mishap.
A hair care system for color-treated hair is a must. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm, which shield color from fading while instantly repairing dry, damaged, color-treated strands for nourished, protected hair and vibrant, lasting color.
While styling your half and half hair color with hot tools will look absolutely stunning, give your strands a break from heat styling when you can. As an alternative, consider trying a messy, textured hairstyle. Rub a bit of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Putty between your palms, then work it throughout your mane to create a defined, piecey look. Easy, right?
