Having two-tone hair is advantageous for a couple of reasons. Besides making you look super hot, the different colors in your hair create depth and dimension, making your hair look full and thick. This is especially true if you have blond and brown highlights in your hair, because there is so much contrast between the two colors. Wear your hair in styles that really show off your highlighted locks and keep your hair always looking its best.
Wearing your hair down straight is one of the best ways to show off your two-tone hair. It shows off the full length of your hair so no matter how you have your hair colored -- more blond on top and brown on the bottom, vice versa, or both colors evenly throughout your hair -- you show off your highlights in all their glory. Get your hair sleek and shiny by flat ironing it and running a dime-sized amount of shine-enhancing serum -- look for a silicone-based product, not one with water as the main ingredient -- over your strands.
Flat iron your hair to get it sleek and smooth, then run some smoothing serum over your strands. Rake the top section of your hair together with your fingers, pulling it back to just below the crown of your head in a ponytail shape. Use a clear elastic to wrap around the base of the ponytail to hold it in place. Finish your chic style by misting over the top of your hair lightly with hairspray. With a half-up style you can see highlights around the top and underside of your hair.
Show off your blond and brown highlighted hair with loose, glossy waves. To achieve this style, blow-dry your hair with a round brush after conditioning to smooth it and get it silky soft. Wind up the sides and back of your hair in hot rollers, only winding each roller halfway up the hair to focus the curls at the ends of your strands. Once the rollers cool, take them out and tousle through your hair with your fingers. Part your hair to one side and run some shine-enhancing serum through it to get your hair glossy and healthy looking. Pull out a 1-inch section of hair opposite your part and press it up against the side of your head. Pin it in place.
Get a sleek ponytail by blow-drying your hair while it's damp, working in sections no larger than 1-inch each. This way you don't leave any damp spots which can end up turning frizzy later on. Flat iron over your hair and run some smoothing serum through your strands. Pull all of your hair together into a ponytail at the crown of your head and secure it with an elastic. This updo style shows of all of your highlights all around your head, is simple and fun, and gets your hair out of your face.
Taking care of your two-tone hair is really important to keep your color fresh and fab. Use hair products that are specifically formulated for use on color-treated hair. More than anything, keep your hair hydrated and healthy by conditioning after each shampoo and using a deep conditioning product once every couple of weeks. Get in to see your stylist for a touch-up when you need it.
