Anime is known for having many exciting and interesting characters. These characters are fun and interesting for many different reasons: their unique personalities, their special abilities, and definitely their appearances. Most characters' distinctive physical feature is usually their hair. Many characters are defined by their unique hairstyles and unnatural hair colors.
Some characters, however, aren't content with one interesting color, instead opting for a nice color combination to distinguish them. Here're the top 10 anime girls who choose to go with a two-color combination.

Rem generally views humans with disdain but is also shown to have a deep fondness for another human death owner, Misa. Rem's main hair color is a white very similar to the rest of her body. The tips of her hair is a light purple, which matches purple markings on her face.

In Nisemonogatari, Yozuru's interest in Koyomi's sisters causes her to enter Koyomi's sphere of supernatural acquaintances.
Yozuru is a famous exorcist who is respected by many connected to the supernatural. She mercilessly tries to get rid of spiritual oddities because it's what she defines as "justice." She wears her red-streaked black hair in a bob cut, which matches her composed, yet sadistic nature.

Dirty Pair Flash is a remake of the 1985 classic series, set in an alternate dimension.
Dirty Pair Flash may feature a Kei from alternate dimensions, but deep down, she's the same Kei. Both are fierce, impulsive, and quick to act, preferring to "shoot first, and ask questions later."

In the eleventh year of the Meiji era, the government made it a forbidden act to carry around a sword. Many samurai were unhappy with this decree and, as a result, the crime rate rose as many samurai rebelled. To quell the growing unrest, an inescapable lake prison was created. Soramaru and his two brothers are tasked with ferrying the criminals to the prison.
Of course, where there are samurai, there are ninja. In one of these ninja clans, the Fuuma Clan, in order to become an official Fuuma ninja, you must kill someone very close to you. In doing so, your eyes turn violet and your hair becomes pure white. Nishiki, however, ran away in the middle of a ritual, and became a "half-baked."
As a half baked, half of her body carries the distinct features of a Fuuma: the white hair and violet eyes. The other half, however, maintains her appearance before attempting the ritual. As a result, Nishiki has perhaps the most interesting and unique bicolor hair, a perfect 50-50 divide of black and white hair.
