    To get the look of Melanie Martinez all you need to do is part the hair in the middle, from the front to the nape of the neck with a fine comb, keeping the hair on one side of the head out of the way using hair grips. Then, either colour one half of the hair dark blonde and the other half black, or why not try another colour combination. You may like to try keeping your natural hair colour on one side and colour the other side with a darker or lighter colour.
