What is earring hair colouring?

If you want to try a different hair color but don’t have the colour or design you want, there is a recommended hair colour for you!

That is earring color!!

Earring colour is an explosively popular hair color technique, and many customers come to Baroque and hair nails every week.

Please read this article and try a stylish hair color that is different from the colors you have been using until now.

What is earring colour?

Earring color is a popular colour technique in which only the area around the ear is contrasted.

Women often wear their hair over their ears, and the combination of the cuteness of the earrings and the colour makes them look more fashionable, so it is highly recommended.

Earring color is a very cute and cool way for those who do not wear earrings to add color contrast around the ears, and the small bunches of color that can be glimpsed when the earrings are worn are a good accent.

3 earring color characteristics

Earring color features include

  • Minimal color so they are less painful
  • Wide variety of colors
  • Impression can be changed immediately

The following are some of the features of earring coloring.

Since the color is mainly applied to the area around the ears, people who want to brighten their hair but do not want to bleach their entire hair can do so.

Also, if you have permed or straightened your hair, bleaching is not recommended, but the impression you get by just adding a touch of colour is a feature of earring color.

It is hard to see the colour when the earring part is down, but the moment you put them over your ears, the impression will change so you can enjoy hairstyles and fashion according to your TPO!

What is the difference between earring color and inner color?

When I heard the term “earring color,” I thought to myself.

“You mean the traditional inner-colour?”

I think there are many people who misunderstand this term.

Inner colour is a method of dying the nape area (the hair on the back of the head below the ear and ear line).

Inner colour does not look dyed on the part of the hair visible from the surface, but when the hair is brushed or tied up, the colour contrast is clearly visible, making this color a design feature.

In comparison, earring colour is applied as a point of color around the ears, where the colour grows beautifully when the earrings are worn.

Therefore, it is difficult to look extremely flashy, and the most important point is that the color is most visible when the hair is worn over the ears.

This is highly recommended for people who are applying bright colour for the first time or who do not want to change the color with a lot of gusto like inner colour.

Why have earring colour become so popular?

The secret behind the popularity of earring color is that more and more customers are looking for hair colour that looks good with earrings.

Especially since entering the 2021 generation, there has been an increase in short hairstyles that create a feminine and fashionable atmosphere around the ears.

With the increase in short styles, there is a wider repertoire of colors, and I think more customers are seeking “cute colours” and “cool colours” that suit them with earrings.

I think earring colors that match the design and color of the earrings worn in the ears will become mainstream in the future.

What happens when earring color is done with black hair?

Many people may want to try earring colour but are wondering what to do because they have black hair now.

Basically, if you have black hair, even if you wear them over your ears, the earrings will make a very strong statement because the hair colour around the ears remains black.

However, since black hair is 4 levels, I highly recommend 6 levels or more to create a little contrast.

Also, if you bleach your hair thoroughly, you can create a more edgy and cool style, which is recommended for those who want to look mature.

What happens when earring colour is made without bleach?

Many people want to do earring colour but without bleaching and without damaging their hair.

Earring colour is a popular color design for the younger generation because the brighter the color, the easier it is to add vivid color.

Otherwise, if you are an 8-level brown person, you can change your impression considerably just by dying your hair with a few additional color tones such as reddish, ash, blue, or green tones.

Perhaps the best part of earring colour is that it can be enjoyed without bleaching.

How to do earring colour

The earring colour will vary greatly depending on the color and spread you want to include and whether or not you want to do a base color.

In general, for earring colour only, the process is as follows.

This customer had previously had earring color, and we will retouch the roots and add a new colour.

The bleaching part also uses a bleaching agent to brighten the root part of the hair because it is dark, and a weaker agent because the tips of the hair are already light.

After bleaching, a toner is applied to the bleached area on the shampoo table to finish the process.

In most cases at our salon, we also do color correction on areas other than the earring color.

Earring colour are also recommended for customers in their 40s and 50s

Those in their 40s and 50’s who have the image that earring colours are for young kids!

That’s not true!

We have many customers in their 40s and 50s who want to try a different hair color, and we suggest earring color to them.

I don’t want to damage my hair by bleaching.

I don’t know if it will look good on me.

I don’t want to damage my hair by bleaching,” or “I am embarrassed because my hair doesn’t match my age.

A thorough explanation of the 10 most popular straight bobs and their suitable contours.

Straight styles, such as Japanese hair straightening and smoothing, are very popular these days, but many people want to straighten their hair, even if it is not long.

Especially for those with medium or bob-length hair, many people are not sure whether to grow it out or cut it off.

In this article, we would like to introduce some bob hair designs that look good in a straight style.

I am sure this will be useful for those who are thinking of cutting their hair short to a bob, or for those who have a bob now but are thinking of extending it, so please take a look.

What contours of the face suit a straight bob?

One of the reasons why lots of people have trouble with straight bobs is contour.

Many people want to hide their complex parts.

When you have a straight bob, the hair fits around the face, which tends to be a problem for people who don’t want to show their contours clearly.

‘Should people with a complex about their contours not go for a straight bob?’ But you’d be wrong!

The ideal facial contour is an oval shape called an egg shape. Everyone is drawn to this oval shape.

In fact, the kinds of facial contours often referred to as complexes include

  • Round face type
  • Long face type
  • Rectangular type
  • Rectangular type
  • inverted triangle type
  • Diamond type
  • Base type
  • Pear-shaped type

These are divided into such categories as.

People with respective contour problems only try hairstyles that can hide the contours of their face, but they are reluctant to try new hairstyles if they feel that their contours may be visible.

The straight bob introduced here may make many people feel that it is easy to show the contours of their face, but in reality, by considering the bone structure, contours and overall balance when creating hairstyles, such as setting the length and adding layers, it is possible to enjoy straight bob hairstyles without worrying about the contours.

The way to get rid of the complex is to find a hairdresser who can offer you a hair design that suits your contours!

The case of the long-faced woman who wants a straight bob

The problem with long faces, which is often consulted by customers, is that the vertical length between the eyebrows and the tip of the chin is longer than the width of the face, so the length between the hairline and eyebrows, between the eyebrows and the tip of the nose, and between the tip of the nose and the tip of the chin looks almost the same.

In this case, if the length is set to match the chin tip to hide the long face, the contours will be emphasized even more.

In many cases, perms are normally applied to give volume to the sides of the face.

However, if a straight style is used to cover the hair without a perm, the thickness can be added with a haircut, such as graduations or layers.

The case of round faces who want a straight bob

Next to long faces, many customers who suffer from round face contours, who are the most frequently consulted, feel that their entire face looks round and they inevitably don’t want to look cute or childish.

Many people want a sharper jaw or a more mature or make-up-looking contour.

If you tend to look childish, edgy angles and long/short hairstyles are recommended.

If you have a round face, setting the length longer than the chin makes it easier to look taller, and adding length differences, such as down the front, creates sharpness at the ends of the hair, making it easier to look more mature.

Heavy hairstyles and short hairstyles tend to make you look young, like a student, so consult your hairdresser.

Does a straight bob look good without fringes?

Straight bob hairstyles with no fringes tend to look more mature and are recommended for those who want a cool hairstyle.

If you let the ends of the hair hang outwards, the look will change dramatically and you can rearrange the hairstyle.

If the fringes are too long, they tend to look heavy, so if they are set at about the chin to mouth level, they can be easily swept to the side for a good balance.

Does a straight bob with fringes make you look younger?

Straight bobs are very common with bangs, but some people really don’t want to look young.

For such people, one option is to cut the length of the straight bob into a shorter length.

Even with a straight bob, the length setting can greatly change the look and feel, and gradations and layering can also create movement, so it’s a good idea to talk to your hairdresser about the length that suits you best.

I recommend filling in the collar like in the photo to make it look compact while also creating a dynamic hair design!

Can a straight bob be permed to make it look more solid?

For those with straight bobs, many people feel they want movement.

Many people feel that they want to try curly styles if they are always straight with a down style.

For those people, we recommend using a curling iron to create curls or giving them a larger perm such as a digital perm, which looks great.

Straightening your hair can make it harder to do perms, later on, so you should try to enjoy straightening and perming while using acid straightening or hair improvement treatments.

Straight bob and black hair are popular hairstyles for students.

The most popular straight bob style for students is black hair.

With black hair, it tends to look heavy and often fails in a cocky way.

When bobbing with black hair, care must be taken in the way the collar is cut and around the face.

After that, it is very important to adjust the overall volume of the hair and make sure that the back volume is not extremely heavy.

If you are a student or have had the experience of being unsuccessful with a straight bob with black hair, you should pay attention to the above points.

Straight bob hair designs are suitable for people in their 30s and 40s.

Rounded, straight bob popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Shorter bobs are popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Hair gradually becomes thinner and less voluminous, so setting the length short will make you look more like an adult woman.

By keeping the neck area tightly packed tight, it looks more mature.

Even with a straight bob, it is easier to create a more feminine look by cutting the ends so that they are soft and rounded.

Light, high-tone straight bob popular with people in their 30s and 40s.

Otherwise, a straight bob combined with a lighter colour is also recommended for people in their 30s and 40s.

Even with a straight bob, you can change the impression of the look significantly by using high tones.

A lighter straight bob is less likely to look heavy and can express lightness, so it goes well with a variety of lighter clothes.

Is a straight bob not enough volume for people in their 50s and 60s?

In their 50s and 60s, aging hair tends to become dry and the top volume tends to flatten and collapse.

Straight bob with layers and tiers is very popular as a hair design that suits such people.

Cutting the hair down to a short bob length makes it easier to style yourself and gives you more volume at the top, making you look younger.

In their 50s and 60s, people tend to rely on perms, which in turn damage their hair and result in hair designs that don’t suit the times.

If you can find a hairdresser who specializes in short hair in your 50s and 60s, you can have a more youthful hairstyle.

Straight bob with a neckline that looks good on people in their 50s and 60s also creates a fashionable Mrs look.

The neckline bob is popular with people in their 20s and 30s, but by creating this neckline, you can cover up the bone structure and emphasize the vertical length of the hair, creating a more slender atmosphere.

The ends of the hair should be set heavier, and the haircut should not be crispy and should give a shiny look.

There are many stray bob styles that can be enjoyed in your 50s and 60s, so enjoy hairstyles at any age.

What do you recommend and how much does it cost to get a straight bob?

At Baroque hair and nails, we have many customers who want to improve their frizzy, wavy, and damaged hair.

To create a hairstyle that suits a straight bob, it is easy to style by yourself if your hair has shine, texture, and manageability, and it is also easy to be appreciated by others.

【2022 Edition】Digital Perm Style Special by Length

Digital perm styles are still very popular in 2022.

Many people with short hair, bob, medium, and long hair come to Baroque hair and nails for digital perms.

If you are thinking about getting a perm, or even if you have never had a perm before, please take a look at the photos of our customers who have had a digital perm done at our salon.

Digital Perm×Short hair

If people with straight hair or thin hair wear short hair, it will inevitably look poor.

However, perms give volume from the top and make short hair look more stylish.

If you have short hair but want more volume and movement, try a perm style.

Digital Perm×Bob hair

Bob styles often wear straight styles, but permed styles are also highly recommended for their atmosphere.

When bobbing, it is inevitably flat at the top and difficult to create movement at the ends of the hair.

If you want volume in your hair to match your makeup and fashion, by all means, try a perm style.

Digital Perm×Midium hair

Many people with medium hair are probably wondering whether to grow it out or cut it.

In such cases, try a digital perm.

Giving a perm to medium hair that has little movement will give it more volume and make it look more stylish when your hair is tied up.

Digital Perm×Long hair

Digital perms work best with long hair.

It is highly recommended for those who have long hair but want more movement and volume.

Instead of strong curls, larger curls should be applied to the entire hair to create a glamorous look.

Larger curls and styling are easy to do and recommended for beginners.

Styling products with digital perms

After the digital perm, it is important to style the hair well.

There are two main types of styling products: cream and oil.

The cream type is applied once to wet hair and lightly applied from the middle to the ends and dried.

After the entire hair is dry, it is recommended to apply a little to the ends and other parts of the hair to make it shiny.

The oil type may be applied in the same way when the hair is wet, or it may be applied to the middle to ends of the hair after the entire hair is dried.

Both protect hair from drying and damage, so be sure to apply a styling product after a digital perm.

Hair salon with a good digital perm in London

At Baroque Hair and Nails, many customers come in for digital perms.

We use perm products and treatments that minimize damage to the hair.

That’s why the result after the perm is very shiny and easy to style.
