I want to make a skunk's tail but that would require the strands to be half white and the other black. How would I set up the hair particles to do this?

Using the hair-info node's 'Intercept' output and a colorRamp node, you can control the color of a particle hair strand from root to tip. enter image description here enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ @EricHuelin - viewer in material nodes comes from the node wrangler addon. Ctrl-Shift-Click on a non-bsdf node to create it. It is simply an emission node re-named to viewer. $\endgroup$ – sambler Nov 26 '17 at 8:44

The hair emits from the tail stem in this example. The nodes set up uses the color ramp for each hair, the root is on the left side of the ramp. If you cut the hair or make it longer the ramp will scale for each strand.
