Under Layer Color
This two-tone hair color has two distinct colors occupying two distinct sections of hair. One color is underneath the other color and peeks out through the upper strands. This style works well with two more dramatically contrasting colors, such as black and peroxide blond or a brown shade and a bright red. In order to achieve this style, tie off two sections of hair along the ridge on the back of your head and die those two sections separately.
Make your two-tone hair color bold by choosing an unnatural, vibrant color for one of the two tones, such as hot pink, electric blue, neon green or purple. In order to achieve the most vibrant tones, you will want to use peroxide first on the sections that you wish to color in the unnatural shades in order to give yourself a fresh palette. The other color–the more natural color–can be any shade you wish although black creates the highest contrast.
It is easy to create the two toned hair color at home. First you need to part your hair horizontally just above the ears. Then color the upper portion of hair and cover it with a shower cap. Next repeat the procedure with the lower section but with another shade. Allow the colors to sit for the requisite period of time and then rinse it out.Â

Carefully done,the look can be a great way to show both the fun and serious sides of your personality at once, in a stylish and trendy way.
