If you’re a dedicated fashionista, or a fashion school student, you’re well aware of the fast-paced changes facing the fashion industry every single day of its existence. It seems like every time you turn your head, there is a new designer making headlines, or a new style trend that you can spot all over the streets. It seems like the new year has inspired a lot of bedheads to spice up their hairdo. One of the latest spotted fashion trends is the two-tone hair swoosh, and you can see it all over the streets of New York City, Milan, and other fashion-forward cities. If you are looking for a way to re-invent yourself to the world in honor of the new year, then listen to this fashion school expert guide to achieving the two-tone hair coloring look. If you add a little unexpected color to your hair, you’ll surely turn heads anywhere you go.
The first step, is to part your hair in a horizontal line all the way around the perimeter of your head. It doesn’t need to be perfect, but once you have a reasonably straight part, separate the top half of your hair from the bottom half. You can do this by clipping the top half together in a pile on the very top of your head, and make sure there are no straggling hairs hanging down. Once you have a clean separation between your top and bottom hair, it is time to start applying the color. Most commonly, people try a lighter color on top which fades into a darker color on the bottom. However, the two tones in your hair coloring are YOUR chance to be creative, so you should choose any two colors you want that compliment each other and your facial coloring. If you want an extra-special look, go for a pastel color mixed with blonde, or any other natural hair color. Just make sure that if you go for a pastel tone, that you fade the two colors together artfully. Start with the top, and comb the hair dye in thoroughly, from the center moving outward. Once the top is complete, cover your dyed hair with plastic wrap, or a plastic cap, and repeat the same process with the bottom half. Once you have worked the dye into your hair, allow plenty of time for it to process. Once the dye is fully soaked in, rinse each section of the hair off separately, and then blow dry and/or style it accordingly. If all goes well, the result will be a mesmerizing, two-tone hair swoosh that can add a splash of vibrancy and color to anybody’s look!
