With hair that's black on top and blond on the bottom, you've definitely got a rad, rockin' style. That's some serious contrast you've got going on, and it looks fab with the right styles. You can either leave your hair loose to keep the blond hidden, or show off the ferociousness of your two-tone hair with an updo style. You've already got the uber-fun dye job -- now you just need a super fab style to go with it!
A loose, straight style keeps your blond color covered up, unless you pull your hair over your shoulder -- if it's long enough -- or pull some hair up on one side. On freshly washed hair, blow-dry your hair with a round brush until it's completely dry. Blow-dry in layers, working from the bottom up. This way you don't end up with any damp spots and major frizz later on.
Loose curls are always stylish and chic, and this style lets you show off your black hair with flashes of the blond from underneath in your big, bouncy curls. To get curls that actually last --nothing's more frustrating than creating curls only to have them fall limp minutes afterward -- work a volumizing spray on freshly washed, blow-dried hair. Use a 2-inch-barrel curling iron to curl around the bottom half of your hair from one side to the other. Use a bit of hairspray to keep your curls from falling flat.
A half-up style looks really rad with two-tone hair when you've got one color on top and one on the bottom. Especially if you've got even amounts of each hair color, so you're basically pulling up all the black hair and keeping the blond hair down loose, creating the most contrast. Rake the top hair back with your fingers and use a claw clip to hold it in place at the crown of your head.
A braided pullback style is so effortlessly chic. You'll look like you just walked off the front page of a fashion magazine, even though it only takes minutes to do. Flat-iron your hair straight and part it to one side. Pull up a section of hair about 2 inches wide, at the front of the side opposite your part. Braid down the hair, leaving a few inches of hair loose at the ends. Pin the braid against the side of your head with a bobby pin.
Your black-and-blond hair is going to look anything but rad if you let it fade out. Keep your color vibrant and fresh with gentle hair care products, namely your shampoo. Washing your hair with shampoo that's full of harsh ingredients is only going to end up stripping out your hair and drying it out. Always condition your hair after shampooing, and use a thermal heat protectant before heat styling to protect your hair from damage.
