Multi-colored hair doesn’t have to be a a nightmare to maintain. Once you have oVertone in the right shades for you, all you have to do is section to ensure the right colors get to the right strands.

Here’s one example of how to section hair to maintain two-toned hair, featuring Instagram makeup artist KD Ives (see her stuff @_gypsyglitter).
After combing her hair, KD used the sharp end of her comb to gather the top layer.

Once the bottom section was complete, all KD had to do was release the top section to apply Extreme Purple Deep Treatment there, and clip it back up once it was done. Here’s how it looked just before she rinsed:
And that’s all there is to sectioning! You don’t have to be exact every time – that would be impossible! As long as the general area you need to cover is covered, it will blend well. Here’s how KD’s hair looked once it was rinsed, dried and styled:
