Split Hair Dye Ideas: Half and Half Hair Color and Styles

Split hair dye like all hair trends has moved from just being a straight down the middle split of color for 2022. The half and half trend does not have to be classically what we have already seen and it’s nice to put a twist on trends, so you have your own individual look. Saying that, we love the classics. Check out the below pictures of split hair dye ideas, so you can decide the half and half hair for you.

Split Hair Dye Ideas: Half and Half Hair

Classic Split Hair Dye Color

The ultimate classic split hair dye look, half and half, black and white, clean definition split down the middle. I love the opposite ends of the spectrum used for this split hair dye look – clearly making a statement for 2022.

Split Hair Dye Underneath

This look has shifted from the color part being vertical. Instead, the split hair dye color technique has been done horizontally. This half and half hair dye trend is less obvious, and more like a hidden color. You can show it off by wearing the hair up or hide it by wearing the hair down. A great day-to-night hair color idea, and we love it.

Maybe you’re a blondie that doesn’t want to lose the blonding work that goes into your hair. Blondes can go for a low maintenance split hair dye by using a color that fades out. Think two shades of toners or a pastel color approach. Great for an occasion like a festival, giving a gentle contrast of the spit hair dye trend.

Split Dye on Mens Hair

I don’t like to do a category specifically for men because I feel whatever your gender, go for it. However, a lot of people google split dye for mens hair and this trend for me is genderless, whoever you are, roll with what you want to do with your look. The guy’s rock color just as well as girls, and every gender going.

Split Hair Dye on Curly Hair

Split hair dye can look cool on curly hair too. The look is a high contrast half and half hair trend, but also curls add a new dimension. The definite line between the split of color can be blurred by hair texture, but can still rock. Curls add energy to a look and we’re feelin’ it.

Bright Split Hair Dye Color

Split hair dye is a split trend, so why not enhance the split look by going super bright? This half and half hair look are made for those people that want to make a statement with their hair color. So, go to your hairdresser with an idea of your favorite hair tones, and ask what is achievable, or best.

High Contrast Split Hair Dye Ideas

Split Hair Dye Bright Contrast

High contrast is an idea I love, half and half hair can be super playful. Color on the color wheel has tones that cancel each other out because they are opposites. Think primary colors Red, Yellow and Blue. The opposite to red is green, the opposite to yellow is purple, the opposite to blue is orange. These colors make each other ”pop” and it’s a fun way to play with color theory and contrast. There’s an array more on the color wheel so ask your stylist.

Split Hair Color on Short Hair Ideas

Short hair bares all when it comes to color and the split block color technique will be an obvious look. So long as you’re happy to rock a half and half hair look, split color looks super cool on short hair. My personal favorite is a split-color mullet hair style – very edgy.

Balayage Split Hair Dye

Thinking low maintenance split dye? Balayage split dye hair may be the option for you. Keeping your natural tone on the root and adding split dye to the ends can look epic on a balayage. Or, if it isn’t the maintenance you’re worried over, go for a balayage with a contrast, maybe you just want dark roots and split dyed ends.

Split Dye Hair with a Side Part

This look can be colored a few ways. A split dye could be split at the hair part, or a split dye could be rocked colored in a middle split, but styled by parting the hair on the side. I like both and rules were made for bending, then breaking so go for the side part split dye look if it’s a bit of you.

Split Ombre Dip Dye Color


Ok, this is not one I’ve seen as much but I like the idea and it’s pretty playful. Ombre split dye in my mind is all reference to Harley Quinn. Her hair is blonde but the ends have had a split dye on either half going pink and blue. This is a good low maintenance option too, so if you like low commitment maybe this split dye hair idea is a good option.

Split Dye Bangs for 2022

So, don’t want the full split dye hair trend but want to embrace the style? Why not try split dyeing your bangs? It adds the element of split dye and looks really cool on either a full blocky fringe or a jagged pixie look. Either way, split dye’s a trend for everyone, whether it’s bold, hidden, genderless or short. Whatever’s your thing – go for it.
