For many it is difficult to decide on coloring even in natural tones. But there are those who cannot imagine themselves without changing their hair color, and the bolder and more original this color is, the better! If you have already tried a lot (from ombre, contrasting strands and tips of colors to neon roots), split coloring will give you new sensations.
WHAT IS SPLIT COLORING?
This is a technique in which the hair is divided into two sections to be dyed separately, in different colors. Most of the time, for split coloring, they do a classic parting down the middle; The result is a two-tone look with different shades on the right and left sides of the part. To create parted hair, as a rule, bright contrasting colors are used: blue and pink , purple and acid green, lilac and mint. But you can choose a more relaxed combination, for example, the color of milk chocolate and blonde. Or, for example, split hair color with black and white, combine blonde with brown or red with black.
True, most still prefer to dye their hair in the split technique, using bold and unusual shades. Like "Neon Mermaid" by L'Oréal Paris.
In fact, there are many options for split staining. It is not necessary to make a straight straight parting. Divide your hair into sections of your choice. You can, for example, separate the upper layers of threads from the lower ones, make a diagonal parting, or create not two, but three or more color blocks. The result depends entirely on how far your imagination can go.
WHO IS SPLIT COLORING SUITABLE FOR?
To say that this technique may be contraindicated for someone is impossible. Some girls are crazy about parted hair, and someone thinks that the idea of dyeing their hair, parting it, in different colors is crazy. Not sure if split hair color will work for you? Well, this is a matter of taste, but you will surely be inspired by people who are not afraid of bright colors and boldly experiment with their image.
If you like your natural hair color or a color you've recently done, leave this shade on top. Separate the lower strands, making a horizontal parting at the back at the level of the ears, and additionally color them alone. If you are ready for a complete transformation, then a standard parting with a straight parting will do. Read about the 2021-2022 color trends here.

SPLIT COLOR TECHNIQUE FOR HAIR OF DIFFERENT LENGTHS.
for short hair
Girls with short, tomboyish pixie cuts can create many different styles of parted hair. The division of the hair into sections in your case will be clearly visible. Consider the shape of these sections. Making a straight parting is as easy as shelling pears, but there are more original solutions. For example, a straight line can be replaced with a zigzag. Or separate a wide hairline from the face and get a colored frame for it, and dye the main part of the hair at the back in a different shade.
For medium length hair
If you have shoulder-length hair or, for example, long hair, then the color division approach should be a little different.
In addition to the usual parting, you can try the option with the parting of a wide strip of strands near the face. As well as a horizontal division with the creation of a contrast between the threads of the upper and lower layers.
for long hair
Girls with long hair can safely use the same parting color options that are relevant for medium hair. One of the most “safe” options is a parting with an emphasis on face-framing strands. This technique allows you to leave the original color on most of the hair.
However, if you use a dye with a proven gentle formula and know how to care for your hair after the procedure, you can dye all your hair. By the way, if the hair is long, split coloring with an ombre effect will look interesting: choose your own color scheme for each side and create a transition from a darker shade at the roots to a lighter one at the tips.
TRENDY SPLIT COLOR IDEAS
split with straight parting
This is the basic option. Make a part and dye your hair on the right and left in different shades. Even if in life you comb your hair back or throw it to one side, the result will still look beautiful and spectacular.
Split in natural tones
The sections you divide your hair into do not need to be the same width. One may be more, the other less. And it is not necessary to use flashy and flashy colors. You can choose tones from the natural range. Dark brown on one side, blonde on the other. This is the perfect color for those who can't decide which is better, whether to be a blonde or a brunette.
You can "stay yourself" on one side and dye the other part of your hair in one of the neon shades. To avoid the usual two-tone coloring, "hide" a few contrasting strands in the middle layers of neon hair. In addition, they can be decorated with an ombre effect with iridescent dyes.
Split coloring with gradient
You can create a gradient effect on each side separately. To maintain contrast between the two sections, use shades from either side of the color spectrum for the gradient.
Parted hair with bangs accent
If you wear bangs, in your split coloring you can highlight it with color. And also take a couple of strands from the face. The shade of the main mass of hair cannot be changed. Or, if you like, paint in a contrasting shade.
Parted with light strands on the face
If there is no explosion, do it differently. Separate the strands from the face and paint in a contrasting tone. Brunettes can lighten them. And blondes - experiment and complement your image with colored threads. Blue, purple, lilac, turquoise, mint, pink - these and many other shades will do.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DYE YOUR HAIR WITH THE SPLIT TECHNIQUE?
