Dark Roots in Blonde Hair for Ultimate Two Tone Hair Style

Are you playing with the idea of coloring your hair blonde but fear the frequent root touch-ups to hide the growing dark portion of your hair? There is no longer any reason to be concerned about dark roots. This concern is a thing of the past when dark roots were taboo and had to be hidden. Hiding is no longer necessary. In fact, two tone hairstyles are now accepted everywhere including gala events. We offer a few styling tips that will help you look sassy but well-groomed until the next hair color treatment.

The two tone hair trend may have made dark roots in blonde hair acceptable. Not long ago, it was taboo to show hair near the roots, which had grown out in a different color. At that time these ‘roots’ had to be touched up. This forced many women to color their hair frequently. Today, the once taboo look may be considered the beginning of trendy two tone hair color styles. This ombré hair, for example, will do nicely until the next hair color treatment.


Having a relaxed attitude about such minor issues as dark roots is certainly a good idea. Being uptight has no positive returns and limits creativity!

Two Tone Hair Color: From Taboo to Hairstyle Option

Nowadays, women with two tone hairstyles may still be considered rebels. After all, they dare to ignore one of the old conventions, which are loaded with strict rules like ‘dark roots in blonde hair must be concealed from view’. Quite often the group of rebels grows into a minority group, which paves the way to general acceptance. It only takes a little patience. Taboos die hard. Women with two tone hair, especially dark roots and blonde ends, are well on their way to oust the taboo. There are even some stars who proudly embrace the two tone hair color trend on the red carpet. Soft waves, beach waves, and sassy bob hairstyles are particularly suitable for the dark root look.


How frequently you give hair near the roots a color touch-up is now (almost) a matter of taste rather than a matter of trying to conceal what can’t really be concealed. Modern women are done complying with rules.

Tips for Styling Two Tone Hair

Have we convinced you yet? If you are ready to wear the two-tone look or simply want to extend the period between hair color treatments we have some helpful two tone hair ideas for you. Rebels still want to look their best.


1. Two tone hair color styles look particularly chic in combination with beach waves and soft waves. Both are casual style elements, which enhance each other.


2. Two tone hair looks casual rather than unkempt as long as the hair is healthy.


3. The dark roots look better without a sharp transition from dark to light hair. Make sure that the transition between hair colors does not create discernible steps. Soft, irregular transitions are much more appealing.


4. For anybody who is unsure about creating soft gradual color transitions and about selecting the best suited two tone hairstyle for the avant-garde look, there is a Schwarzkopf Professional Hairstylist right around the corner.

Of course, there is still the option to conceal dark roots by coloring them. You will find a large selection of root touch-up kits for use wherever the root portion of the hair is visible. This extends the period between coloring your hair.
