FOR THOSE TREND DABBLERS AMONGST US WHO HAVE TRIED ALL COLOURS AND STYLES, CULTURE HQ HAS ANOTHER ONE FOR YOU! THOSE SO TRENDY IT HURTS GIRLS (AND THE OCCASIONAL GUY) OF SOCIAL MEDIA ARE SPLIT DYING THEIR HAIR – SAY GOODBYE TO OMBRÉ, RAINBOW, LILAC AND PASTEL… IT’S ALL ABOUT THE COLOUR CONTRAST OF HALF-AND-HALF!

The split hair trend involves the hair being parted down the centre then dying each side a different colour. Sounds easy, right? Well, it’s not for the faint hearted. Rocking this super edgy and cool ‘do could put your head into a spin trying to find an outfit in your wardrobe to match.

If you’re one of the commitment-phobes of the world who can’t decide on or commit to just one colour, split-dying is the answer to your hair prayers. Think fashion colour blocking, but with hair. Get creative with your colour combos – one side red and the other orange, or simple monochromatic – the options are endless!

Indecisive, and a little daring, when it comes to your ‘do? Make like Disney’s chicest villain (lookin’ at you, Cruella!) and embrace the trend! If we’ve piqued your interest, be sure to follow the trend on Instagram via the #splithair hashtag.

Is the look beautifully bold, or a daring disappointment? We’ve spent some time (okay, a lot of time!) stalking the hashtag, and have found some of our favourite takes on the trend… Love it, or loathe it? Let us know!
