Other type of “half black half red” hair is the top half black and bottom half red. This style involves using a dark brown or black color on the top portion of your head, while leaving the ends of your hair with bright red colors. If you decide to go for this option, then it would be best if you had shorter strands in order to let out more lightness at the tips. Longer pieces can often lead to too much darkness on one side which does not fit well with having two different types of coloring. If this sounds like something that you think will work well with your own personal wants and needs, then give it a try!

COLORING IN RED-BLACK

Melting

This technique consists of dyeing only individual strands of hair, starting from the root and ending at the tip. The result always looks very stylish and refreshing. The advantages of red-black highlights:

  • Looks great on hair of any length and structure;
  • Applicable to women of all ages (the exception is very bright red strands in the hairstyles of mature ladies);
  • gray hair is safely hidden;
  • Dyeing only individual strands is much safer than applying a dye solution to the whole mass of hair;
  • Visually, hair becomes more lush and airy.

In the past, melting was only possible to lighten the selected strands insignificantly, now it is possible to color in bright red and other colors. Colorists gladly offer their clients the possibility of dyeing by one of the following methods: balayage, ombré or bronzing. In this case, the technique is chosen depending on the type and condition of the hair. The existing color and the desired result are also important.

Ombré

This type of coloring makes the hair bright and contrasting. It is important to color the hair not from the ends, but from the middle, for example. It turns out that the upper part of the hair is black, and the lower part is contrasting red. It is recommended to use ombré for those girls whose hair is naturally dark, because they do not have to make regular corrections.
Classic ombré used to be considered only the coloring for long-haired young ladies, but now hairdressers do such a change of image and for short haircuts, adding to the overall image of mischievous zador and a note of carelessness.
