->''"Interest in your bold rejection of social norms as evidenced by your dyed hair."''
-->-- '''Wealthy, Successful Protagonist''' to [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Lead Female]], ''WebVideo/ATrailerForEveryAcademyAwardWinningMovieEver''

A character with hair of dramatically varying shades. Often, each individual shade would be perfectly normal (at least, [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair by the standards of its medium]]).

Often the result of being LockedIntoStrangeness. A SuperTrope of SkunkStripe. See also KaleidoscopeHair, which changes color, DelinquentHair and AnimeHair.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Half the hair on Jio's head from ''Manga/SixSixSixSatan'' is white, to go along with his heterochromia. Being possessed by Satan does wonders for his personal appearance. After the {{Timeskip}}, the wonders [[{{Bishounen}} aren't just for his hair]], but his hair still is one hella uncommon for the place where he lives.
* Olivie from ''Franchise/{{Angelique}}'' (blonde/golden and dark pink/red). Some character designs also threw green into the mix.
* Guts of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' gets a white streak in his hair after using the cursed Berserker Armor for the first time.
* Hinoki Sai from ''Anime/{{Betterman}}''. She has brown hair with the exception of her bangs which are red and green. Although the majority of her flashbacks suggest that the rest of her family have the same unusual quality.
* Birdy from ''Anime/BirdyTheMighty'' has strange red and white hair; its exact appearance varies depending on the adaptation.
* The {{Shinigami}} Ronald Knox in ''Manga/BlackButler'' has blond hair at the top and darker underneath, similar to H-neun.
* In ''Manga/BlackJack'', half of Dr. Black Jack's hair became white after a land mine blasted his head apart when he was a child.
* A short-lived ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' villainess, Berenice Gabrielli, had white and black hair.
* Shura Kirigakure from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has hot pink-colored hair with yellow ends, in a manner that evokes the likeness of flames.
* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' has two characters with black-and-white hair, Akutagawa (black with white ends) and Q (white on the left, black on the right).
* Gotenks from ''Anime/DragonballZ'', being the result of a FusionDance, has purple and black hair.
* Sena of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' has brown bangs, while the rest of his hair is black. This is probably a case of AuthorAppeal, since the main character of the artist's other manga, Blust, has black bangs with brown hair.
* ''Manga/FruitsBasket'': Hatsuharu has black and white hair, in the same style as H-neun and Ronald, but it's naturally that way for him (because his [[EasternZodiac animal]] is the cow). Since it looks like the darker bottom part is his roots, he's the only one accused of dying his hair an "unnatural color", despite the [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair rainbow varieties]] among the cast not likely to be found in Japan. At least for the others, it's one color per person. (He promptly demonstrates his innocence, [[HilarityEnsues with the expected results.]])
* Rose Thomas from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has brown hair with pink bangs in [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the first anime]], black hair with pink bangs in ''Brotherhood''. It's highly unusual in the naturalistic series where people mostly have common hair colors. The series is set in a technologically advanced early 1900s so it's likely Rose dyes her hair. [[spoiler:Her Earth counterpart Noah in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistTheConquerorOfShamballa'' has completely brown hair to support this.]]
* For most of the series, Bleed Kaga from ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'' has green hair with orange triangles on each side of his hair and a black tail.
* ''LightNovel/GroundControlToPsychoelectricGirl'''s Erio has very light blue hair but at times gains crystal-like glitter (that can flow off her without ending). Other characters notice this, mainly Makoto, but never mention it out loud.
* Kaite Madigan from ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray'' has black and blond hair as a result of his [[DesignerBabies genetic enhancements]] not coming out quite right. [[HumansAreBastards His parents gave him up for adoption because of this.]]
* ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'':
** Kenma Kozume has dyed blonde hair with black roots, often leading to opponents comparing it to pudding as well as earning him the InSeriesNickname of 'pudding head'.
** Nishinoya Yuu also has black hair with a tuft of beige at the front.
* Anzu from ''Manga/HanamaruKindergarten'' has her mother's blonde hair in the front and her father's brown hair in the back. This is completely natural.
* In ''Manga/HekikaiNoAion'', Yuzuki and Shizuki have black hair with blonde bangs.
* Hikaru from ''Manga/HikaruNoGo'' has mostly black hair; his bangs are blonde.
* When the {{magical girl}}s of ''Anime/IlSolePenetraLeIllusioni'' transform, their hair gets rather longer and gets a gradient effect. Fairly subtle for most characters, but Priscilla's starts brown, turns red, then ends up white.
* ''LightNovel/ItsukaTenmaNoKuroUsagi'' has several examples of gradient hair. Himea has pink to blue hair with sparkles, Haruka has brown hair with purple ends, Aomi has a similar style with yellow hair, and Mirai occasionally has yellow to purple and light blue hair.
* Yoshikage Kira from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' part 4 gets Norman Osbourne green-and-black stripes at one point.
* Yukari from ''Anime/{{K}}'' has ([[AgentPeacock dyed]]) purple hair with blue parts over his shoulders on either side. Notably, none of the other characters have unnatural hair colors (except for [[MysticalWhiteHair white/silver/slight pink tone]]) besides Yukari and [[FieryRedhead Mikoto]], who WordOfGod says dyes it. Misaki's is canonically "chestnut", and the Blue Clansmen with blue hair actually have [[PurpleIsTheNewBlack black hair]].
* In ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'', when Shizuku [[PowerDyesYourHair activates her Kampfer power, her hair turns white on the inside]], sometimes rainbow.
* ''Anime/KillLaKill''
** Heronie Ryuko Matoi has black and red hair, the red coming from [[spoiler:her status as a Life Fiber hybrid]].
** Ragyo Kiryuin has rainbow hair. For the record, LightIsNotGood is in full effect here.
* ''Anime/{{Kiznaiver}}'':
** Katsuhira's hair is off-white and brown.
** Nico's hair is orange with (dyed) teal streaks.
* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'':
** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': Sheryl Nome has pink hair with blonde highlights, or vice versa.
** ''Anime/MacrossDelta'': Freyja Wion has pinkish-orange hair with blond tips and roots, while Mikumo Guynemer has purple hair with blue-gray highlights. Justified by the former being [[HumanAliens Windermerian]] and the latter being [[spoiler:an ArtificialHuman]].
** The [[HumanAliens Zolans]], introduced in ''[[Anime/Macross7 Dynamite 7]]'', seem to have two-toned hair as a racial trait.
* Negi and his father, Nagi, from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' have auburn hair on the top and black hair in the back.
* ''Anime/MarginalNumber4'' has idol duo Lagrange Point, both of whom have blue and purple streaks in their hair.
* In ''Manga/NewMazinger'' -a ''Anime/MazingerZ'' spin-off- [[NotAsYouKnowThem Major Kabuto]] is black-haired, but his hair's central part is red.
* The anime adaptation of ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' gave all the female dragons colored tips.
* ''Anime/{{Nanbaka}}'' has cell 13's prisoners - three out of four of them have this trope. Specifically, Rock has purple hair with a large red stripe through the middle, Jyugo has black hair with red tips and Uno's hair is pink and orange.
* Jibril from ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'' also has rainbow hair, starting with a red-ish pink at the top and going all the way down to purple.
* ''Manga/NurarihyonNoMago'':
** Rikuo's normal hair is brown on top and black in the back and when, turned into a demon, his brown hair turns white.
** Yuki-Onna/Tsurara has a hair color similar to Rikuo's demon form as well, only bluer.
** Gyuuki's hair is green and black in the same pattern as Tsurara's.
* Seikichi from ''Anime/OhEdoRocket'' has a spiky orange fringe in the front and a fairly normal brown ponytail in the back. Interestingly, it's similar to Negi below, and Sora comments on this in a dub ActorAllusion.
* Rebecca Miyamoto from ''Anime/PaniPoniDash'' has hair that is part blonde, part pink. Presumably, it's because she's [[ButNotTooForeign half-American and half-Japanese]].
* Stocking from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' has dark blue hair with pink highlights. Furthermore, her hair seems to be blue on the outside and pink toward her scalp.
* ''Anime/{{Potemayo}}'' is full of gradient-haired characters, and some of them are two-colored, such as pink/blonde on the titular [[{{Moe}} moeblob]], purple/magenta on Guchuko, and blue/green on Nene.
* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** In the manga, the rare color renderings of Akari Unryû give her greenish hair with two pink stripes.
** Prince Herb of the Musk Dynasty (pronounced like the plant, not "Herbert") has long white hair that goes pink at the ends, except for his front bangs, which are navy blue.
* In the epilogue of ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'', [[spoiler:Moka's hair turns white and pink, since [[SplitPersonalityMerge her two personalities have become one]].]]
* Gai from ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'' has blond hair with brown tips.
* Death the Kid from ''Manga/SoulEater'' has black hair with three white stipes that only cover half of his head, a fact that greatly annoys him because he has OCD and is extremely obsessed with symmetry. This is in a series where many characters have close-to if not exactly realistic hair colours. Kid's case is unusual and down to genetics (for want of a better word). Death is a Shiningami and those lines are the Sanzu Lines. When they connect, he will become a full Shiningami and succed his father. [[spoiler: Near the end, he connects all of them, Lord Death fades into dust, proud of his son growing up.]]
* ''Anime/StarDriver'''s Takuto has deep red hair normally, but gains a brighter red color and yellow bangs when he Apprivoises.
* In the world of ''Anime/StrikeWitches'', where {{Magical Girl}}s grow animal ears and tails when using their magic, Erica Hartmann just gains black highlights at the ends of her bangs.
* Nia from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has pastel blue and yellow hair, layered in such a way that one might think the blue parts were the shadows at first. Slightly less noticably, Kittan's is blond on top, but the sides, back, and eyebrows are either brown or black.
* Sunny in ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'', though each color tells what purpose his hair's many feelers are used for.
* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'': Lum in the manga had full-blown rainbow-colored hair that seemed to shift colors, yet this is hard to tell because colored images of it were often inked over a majority of it. As the manga progressed, Creator/RumikoTakahashi changed Lum's hair color to green to match the anime, as it was changed there.
* [[YouAreNumberSix H-neun]] from ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' has blond hair at the top, and brown under it. In the flashback parts, his hair is all brown, implying that he dyed the blond part.
* Bear from ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' has half of his hair as brown but the top is black. It's possible either one is dyed.
* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'':
** Yugi Mutou has purple, black, and blond hair, and it is implied that his grandfather looked like this when he was younger.
** The Pharaoh was shown with these hair colors when he was born, but his dad has black hair, like a normal Egyptian. Some suspect that he got his hair from his unseen mother; on the other hand, anime hair doesn't exactly have to follow logic and science.
** Almost everyone from ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' has this to various extents. For example, Yuma's is pink and purple.

[[folder: Audio Plays]]
* ''AudioPlay/ExitTunesPresentsACTORS'' has Mike Enjouji, whose hair is fire-engine red save for one gray streak.
** Phys Ed teacher Kagetora Chouno has an undercut where the top part of his hair is reddish-brown and the bottom part a darker brown.
** Broadcasting Club VP Seijun Yuyama has teal hair with highlights in a lighter shade at the tips.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'':
** Delirium has blondish-reddish-purplish-whatever-she-feels-like hair. It both changes color on a regular basis and is generally multicolored at any given time.
** Rose Walker also has multicolored hair. It's blonde, red, and blue in ''The Doll's House'', and then red with a blonde streak when she resurfaces in ''The Kindly Ones''. Toward the end of the series, possibly as a symbol of finally coming to accept herself, she goes back to her natural color . . . which is ''puce''. (Her grandmother and mother are also shown to have this hair color, meaning that yep! it's real.)
* Melaka Fray from the comic books ''ComicBook/{{Fray}}'' and ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' has blue and purple two-toned hair.
* ComicBook/{{Rogue}} of ''ComicBook/XMen'' has a white streak in her brown hair. Jury's out as to just how she got it.
** TheMovie: LockedIntoStrangeness;
** The Comic: FlipFlopOfGod. Initially, she was drawn to be a woman in her sixties--the white streak was graying hair. When her age was settled down at being seventeen, the white streak was referenced as being dyed. When her backstory was established, she had the white streak even as a thirteen-year-old. While it's possible it was dyed, fans were unsure, since the placement of the white streak varied quite strongly whenever her look was changed. Finally, in her solo series, her hair is shown with a white streak from when she was a toddler, making it a physical mutation.
* ComicBook/NormanOsborn from ''Franchise/SpiderMan'' is drawn with red hair with black stripes, though it's possible that his hair is just in waves and that the red is to show the raised areas.
* Franchise/{{Batman}}'s ComicBook/TwoFace has black hair on his normal side of his face and white hair on his scarred side ([[DependingOnTheArtist when artists don't just make]] [[BaldOfEvil his left side bald]]).
* In the [[ComicBook/{{New 52}} 2011 relaunch]] of ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'', ComicBook/HarleyQuinn of Franchise/{{Batman}} fame has hair that is half red, half blue.
* The titular ComicBook/{{XIII}} has a white stripe of hair, the result of being grazed by a bullet.
* Melissa Gold, a.k.a. Songbird of the ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} has white hair with pink streaks. It's apparently natural.
* ''ComicBook/WarOfKings'', trying to make the Inhumans look more, well, inhuman, drew the dark stripe and circle in Crystal's otherwise reddish-blonde hair, which in earlier stories seemed to be [[HairDecs a weird hairband]], as her actual hair colour.
* Abby in ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' has white hair with a black streak on each side - sort of reverse {{Skunk Stripe}}s.
* It's almost easier to name ''ComicBook/JemAndTheHolograms'' characters who don't have their hair dyed multiple shades. The Misfits have theirs as DelinquentHair:
** Pizzazz has a green mohawk that has some blonde and red highlights, with her natural black hair sometimes showing underneath.
** Jetta has black hair with white highlights.
** Stormer dyes her hair blue but has some of her naturally black hair uncolored.
** Blaze has red hair with blonde highlights.
** Clash has red hair with blue and green highlights.
** Rio has his hair in two different shades of purple.
* ''ComicBook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool'' has blonde and pink hair.

* [[DarkSkinnedBlonde Nestis Towadi]] from Fanfic/DJINNWayToHome has platinum blonde hair with brown streaks, the result of the MixedAncestry from her Native American father and blonde mother. Nestis is sensitive about her unusual coloration, but the only person who criticizes her hair is the local AlphaBitch. Everyone else loves her look, especially [[GenkiGirl Ingrid Hale]] who is borderline ''obsessed'' with Nestis' hair.
* From Webcomic/KillLaKillAU, Ragyou also has this true to canon, usually. It also serves as KaleidoscopeHair, apparently, as it reacts to her mood, as was shown in a few comics.
* FanFic/LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami takes this UpToEleven, when Dark transforms into Du'arq, his Shinigami form, his hair is said to change to "every color of the rainbow but only in dark black like oil or something."
* Creator/DetsniyOffSkiword has used this at least twice. In his Kid Icarus fanfic, [[RonTheDeathEater Pit2]] gains "Dark Black Rainbow Hair" in his SuperMode. In his ''VideoGame/NintendoWars'' fanfic, his [[SailorEarth new CO, Dusk]], is said to have hair that is black and blue.
* The “Urb” G'heddi'onians in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' usually dye their hair several or many colors. And when George becomes one so he can sneak around [[FloatingContinent the Flying Island of Tipaan]], he gives himself full rainbow hair.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Cruella de Vil from ''Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'' has hair that's half black and half white. (According to some, this symbolizes that she's TwoFaced.) Perhaps surprisingly, this is carried over from the book rather than a Disney invention. See the Literature section.

[[folder:Films -- Live Action]]
* The patchwork man in ''Mr Stitch'' has multicolored hair across the spectrum of possibilities for a human scalp.
* In ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', Knives tries to dye her hair blue in order to compete with currently-blue-haired rival Ramona. She winds up with hair that is half blue and half (natural) black. Then she gets her highlights punched off and the whole thing is for naught.
* In ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'', Diane Freeling's trip through the afterlife to rescue her daughter leaves her with a streak of white at each temple. She is reluctant to dye them back, thinking they look "punk" (and possibly seeing them as a badge of pride).
* ''Film/HarryPotter'': Narcissa Malfoy has white-blonde hair that she ties back and dark brown hair that hangs loose.
* Instead of the MysticalWhiteHair implied in the book, the film adaptation of ''Film/CloudAtlas'' has the Fabricants go for a more traditional Asian hair cut, but with a few colored streaks in their hair.
* In ''Film/PacificRim'', [[http://www.filmofilia.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/PACIFIC-RIM-Rinko-Kikuchi-As-Mako-Mori.jpg Mako Mori]] has some bright blue mixed in with her natural black hair, due to exposure to the poisonous agent Kaiju Blue.
* Blink from ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', has dark hair with purple streaks.
* Karai from ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'', has black and pink hair.

* In ''Literature/TheFairyRebel'' by Lynne Reid Banks, a girl is born with a patch of blue in her mostly-brown hair, due to a mix-up by the fairy responsible for her birth.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Death's granddaughter, Susan, has snow-white hair with a black streak, as opposed to the stereotypical ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' jet-black hair with a white streak.
* The heroine of Creator/VCAndrews's ''Literature/MySweetAudrina'' frequently describes her color as "chameleon": a mixture of platinum blonde, chestnut, red, gold, and white.
** Not to be outdone, her rival in the same book has ''apricot''-colored hair.
* In ''A Quest for a Maiden'', the main character was hit on the head by her older sister, who was possibly a witch. Instead of getting a bruise, she got a streak of white in her brown hair.
* Ghiscari people from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' are described as having a mixture of red and black hair.
* The titular character of the Pan Kleks ("Mr. Inkblot") stories from Poland is often depicted as having rainbow hair.
* The ''Literature/TainBoCuailnge'' describes [[Myth/CelticMythology Cu Chulainn]] as having three different hair colors at once:
-->You would think he had three distinct heads of hair -- brown at the base, blood-red in the middle, and a crown of golden yellow. This hair was settled strikingly into three coils on the cleft at the back of his head. Each long loose-flowing strand hung down in shining splendour over his shoulders, deep-gold and beautiful and fine as a thread of gold. A hundred neat red-gold curls shone darkly on his neck, and his head was covered with a hundred crimson threads matted with gems.
* As noted above, Cruella de Vil of ''Literature/TheHundredAndOneDalmatians'' had hair that's half-black, half-white. After she goes through a short but thorough HumiliationConga that was sadly left out of the Disney version, the black half goes white and the white half goes ''green'', apparently from stress.
* Louis Veyrenc de Bilhc, from Fred Vargas' novels (introduced in ''This Night's Foul Work''), has brown hair with red stripes. This is because when he was a child, he had been attacked by kids from the neighboring village ; they had slashed his scalp with glass shards, and where he had been cut, his hair grew back red.
* ''Literature/ArtemisFowl: The Lost Colony'' has Billy Kong, a mercenary with a criminal record in Taiwan, who nevertheless has several (unspecified) colors in his "manga hair." FridgeBrilliance may be involved here: it's implied that this, plus his slight build, leads people to underestimate him and not suspect that he's a professional assassin.
* The Alethi in Literature/TheStormlightArchive have black hair, but if you are not pure-blooded Alethi your hair will naturally be a mix of black and something else, such as blond or auburn. There is also a people called the Irali which have gold hair (not blond, metallic gold) which behaves in the same manner.
** In ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', by the same author, the Royal House of Idris have hair that changes color in response to their emotions. When a character is feeling several emotions at once, or trying and not wholly succeeding in controlling their hair, they may have only some hair change color.
* ''Literature/AvalonWebOfMagic'' combines this trope with PowerDyesYourHair. When Kara's magic manifested for the first time in ''All That Glitters'', her hair turns rainbow.
* In ''Literature/{{Newsflesh}}'', the character known as "the Fox" [[spoiler:formerly Elaine Oldenburg]] started with naturally red hair, then added white with black tips.
* In the ''Literature/WaysideSchool'' books, Louis is described as having a mustache of many colors.
* The protagonist in Caroline B. Cooney's ''Literature/LosingChristina'' series has hair that is a combination of silver, gold, and sable

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Andros from ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' has hair in alternating stripes of black and blond. Somewhat unusual in that he's the only person on the show to have hair like that -- we even see two other members of his HumanAliens species, and they both have blonde hair, though Zhane's contains spots of barely-noticeable silver.
* Merrick in ''[[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Wild Force]]'', too, has {{Skunk Stripe}}s, but in a more subdued way -- two white locks on his otherwise dark hair.
* ''Series/SpaceCases'':
** [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Catalina]] has rainbow hair, but she's a native of one of Saturn's moons.

* ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'': Season 5's Jakob dyed half his hair red.

* The song "Five Colours in her Hair" by British boy band [=McFly=].

His ''other {{Expy}}'', [[VideoGame/EndlessFrontier Kaguya Nanbu]] also exhibits this trope with black hair and red. [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsReversal Raul Gureden]] has black-red hair. [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsNEO Rivalis Muilove]] has blonde/red hair.
** [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ibis Douglas]] similarly has red-orange/black hair, her black hair purely localized near her sideburns.
* Kaguya Nanbu has red and black hair (as does her father) in the ''VideoGame/EndlessFrontier'' spin-off, in the same pattern as their namesake. Emperor Nanbu's even carries over to his ''beard''.
* Karen of ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon64'' has brown hair with blond bangs. She has this in all her appearences, other than ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonDS'' and ''Cute'', which is justified because that is not the same Karen (it's the original Karen's inexplicably identical descendant).
* Eugene Chaud of ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' has a white 'shroom and black sideburns.
* Atlas from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX Advent'' has a large patch of [[FieryRedhead red hair]] covering the rest of her brown hair.

* Lilith and Peri from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' both have blue hair with the bottom half being a different color. It's blue and red in Lilith's case, and blue and pink for Peri. Lilith's case is justified by matching the scales on her [[MorphicResonance dragon]] [[VoluntaryShapeshifting form]].

** Natsume's is red with white streaks.
** Sora's is blond with a green streak.

* Surprisingly enough, for the most part, it's justified in ''Website/GaiaOnline'''s [=NPCs=].

** The late Vladimir Von Helson's {{Skunk Stripe}}s are attributed to aging, as is Edmund's white beard.

* Doc Hammer's (Of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' fame) hair naturally grows in shades of blond and black. He attributes this to "a pigmentation problem or a birthmark or something".
* While not natural, thanks to advancements in hair-dye, hair can be "low-lighted" with shades more intense than the original hair color. Since permanent dyes exist, and hair grows from the roots outward, even if you dyed your entire head, in a few months you'd have multi-colored hair.
* The story goes that when the pilot of ''Series/{{Alias}}'' was being produced, a girl was spotted on a college campus with horizontal stripes in her hair. A producer offered her $100 to cut a lock of it off, as one of the stripes was the exact color they wanted for Sydney's wig.
* Many dogs and cats have multiple colors in their fur. In some dog breeds, such as Pomeranians, this is sometimes referred to as a "parti-color." The tabby coloration in cats is another example in animals.
