Even as we enter the new year, we’re still not ready to say goodbye to the two-toned hair trend and neither are our favourite K-pop idols.

Well, Blackpink’s Rosé, has recently switched up her iconic platinum blonde tresses for two-toned highlights and we’re all for this new style.

What exactly is the two-toned hair trend and what makes Rosé’s stand out? We’ll spill all the details and share the top salons to upgrade your look for less!

The hair trend took off when Blackpink’s Jennie was first spotted with black hair that had a pop of blonde in her fringe. Since then, fellow K-pop stars and fans have served up their own iterations of the look.

Whether you choose to highlight your fringe or keep your blonde shade hidden under an outer layer of black hair, there’s no denying how versatile and flattering the two-toned hair trend is.

While these hairstyles have been loved by various K-idols like NCT Dream’s Renjun and many others, you’re probably curious to know what makes Rosé’s new look different from the rest.

Why we’re in love with Rosé’s new two-toned hair

The huge difference is the reverse Rosé has pulled on this trend. Instead of having the majority of her hair black, she has left her entire head strawberry blonde and accented it with streaks of black highlights.

A style like this is reminiscent of the 2000s two-toned hairstyle that most millennials will be familiar with.

We love the unique twist Rosé has spun on the two-toned hair look. While it definitely helps you stand out from the crowd of dark-coloured hair, the style doesn’t take it too far with only subtle streaks of black here and there.

The black strands also give the entire look an intriguing edge, striking the perfect balance between elegance and edgy. Since her bangs are also dyed a dark colour, they add a subtle shadow effect that nicely frames her face and makes it appear slimmer.

Want in on the trend? We’ve got you covered. Here are the top hair salons you can trust your tresses with.
