Going from 1 Shower Head to 2

I am remodeling my master bathroom. I am needing advice as to how I can make my current shower head and add an additional one. I would like to have the option to have only one at a time working or both. Any advice would be great! Thanks

Does the mixer valve put out enough water volume to feed two shower heads?

Most dual shower head showers have two separate mixer valves--or use a single high volume mixer valve that is fed by dedicated 3/4 inch pipes.----Mike---

The simplest way I have ever seen is the Kohler K-9511 This diverter allows two shower heads one stationary and one on a hose. I plan on using this in my master bath when I get to it.
