After K-beauty, Japanese beauty, also knows as J-beauty, is one trend we can’t get enough of. From soft, supple skin to bright eye makeup looks and ombre lips, Japanese beauty trends are cool, funky and quickly becoming a rage on social media.
A lot of their beauty trends, especially hair looks, are inspired by anime shows. If you are into Japanese anime and follow shows like My Hero Academia or Akiba's Trip, you may already be familiar with bold hair colours. One trend that has recently gone viral on social media is split hair colour. It allows you to sport two bold and bright hair colours with a clear split in between. Here are a few ways you can get on board with this hair trend.

If you’ve got long and shiny locks, here’s a trendy way to try the split hair colour trend. Leave the hair on your crown as is and colour only the lengths of your hair in two gorgeous shades. Opt for funky shades like green and blue to take your hair game several notches higher.

Don’t want to opt for quirky colours? No worries; you can try the Cruella-esque look and sport a black and white split. If you have black hair, you’ll need to colour only half of your hair white and leave the rest as is. Super chic and timeless, don’t you think?

If going halfsies feels like too much, you can go for this less dramatic version of the split hair colour trend. It involves just colouring the fringes in a striking shade to make it stand out. You can also go with ombre split hair colours or just colour the tips of your hair.
