Half and half colored braids

Just like the name implies, this type of colored braid is done with two colors. Usually black and another color. The top part of the braids is done with black hair and once it gets to the middle, it is continued with the second color, this gives the braids an ombre finish. You can also simply use ombre braiding hair in your preferred color.
