Cruella de Vil Isn’t The Only One With #SplitHair — Instagrammers Rock The Divided Look

#SplitHair hashtag may be inspired by Cruella de Vil and other fantasy characters.

A new hair trend is circulating, and Instagram users are showing their Cruella de Vil sides with the #SplitHair hashtag. Similar to Cruella’s iconic divided half-white and half-black hair, these dye-hard color lovers are creating two-toned hairstyles that split down the middle.

The trend is growing across Instagram, and you can find hundreds of images there under the #SplitHair hashtag, but here are a dozen particularly eye-grabbing ones we found. Check them out and see what you think.

Here is an example of black-and-white hair with an interesting mirrored effect.

Although the trend is being described as ‘Cruella-inspired,’ most are more colorful than the 101 Dalmations villainess’ monochromatic locks.

This is my personal favorite — the colors are awesome and look amazing with her eyes.

Here’s another amazing example, from a young woman who has also done her makeup in matching bright colors.

There are also some split hair afficionados who manage to make the style look totally casual.

Youtuber Phoenix takes the style a step further, with an additional splash of color in this three-toned style.

Here’s another three-toned look — this color lover has blended a bright pink and a bold blue into her natural dark hair.

A lot of people are also exploring the style with two shades that aren’t as stark a contrast — like this blue split hair below.

Others pick colors that contrast boldly, and really catch the eye with bright tones.

Red-and-black is a popular color combination that we’re seeing, and it looks good in a wide variety of styles and lengths. The long hair in the photo below would be impressive in any color, but it’s very striking in red and black.
