These days it is simply not enough to color your hair with just one color. Now, you can add a little bit of extra spice to your hair with 2 different colors! Many stylists these days are becoming trained to use 2 different colors for their clients. This is a very good skill to have and if you find that your stylist can do this, make sure that you take advantage of that!

The first thing that you need to look at first is your style. You need to ensure that you have that bold style. This style is usually common among those who are very self confident. Going bold with 2 hair colors at the same time is another great sign of self confidence. Once you decide to actually take the leap you need to choose your colors. Ensure that the colors you choose match. This is a very important aspect of the process. If the colors you choose do not match, then everything is going to look a little bit strange. Talk to your stylist about the various color schemes that might work for you. From there you need to think about the color placement. Most people get the bottom portion of the hair dyed darker than the top portion.

Red Hair Color Looks Fabulous

Two of the most famous blonds of Hollywood, Blake Lively and Scarlett Johansson became redheads of late as a requirement for their new movie roles. They both look gorgeous and the red hair looks fabulous on them. If you are a certified blond and you are tempted to go red, here are some things you need to know:

Layer the colors
A single or solid color may emerge as flat and without depth. To avoid this, layer several variants of red over each other. This way it will appear as one color with a lot of texture, and not just one chunk of red. A darker red can be applied on the scalp and a lighter version for the rest of the hair. Add a fine brownish-red lowlights right through the hair and put restrained highlights on the ends so that the hair does not look too dark. Another way to create depths on red hair is to have a lighter top, maybe a bright copper tone with specks of golden hues, with dark red underneath.
