How to Add a Pop of Color to a Bob Haircut

Looking to highlight your face with something a little bolder than blonde? Don’t discount the Money Piece—it’s one of the best ways to make a big, vibrant bang with fewer bucks. @Mariel_Darling showed us how easy it is to get a pop of custom color on her bob haircut before heading out for the weekend, without spending $$$.

The money piece makes a big statement on a low budget by framing the face and brightening the features, but it doesn’t have to be blonde to make an impact. Take your hair to another dimension in this step-by-step guide to adding a pop of color to a bob haircut. Don’t have a bob? Good thing the money piece looks great on any hair length and face shape. Change our minds.

Low-risk, low-maintenance AND high impact on all hair textures and types? Show me the money.


STEP 01: 

Prep your area for a mess-free, stain-proof experience. Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • Gloves
  • A black towel and/or cape to cover clothing and surfaces
  • Freshly washed, dry hair

STEP 02:

Pick your poison. @Mariel_Darling mixes her own custom color with Pastel Pink and Pastel Blue for a warm lilac we love, but the possibilities are endless.

STEP 03:

Separate hair based on desired thickness of money piece. Start with a small section if you’re on the fence—but get ready to fall in love.

STEP 04: 

Wearing gloves, saturate strands with your shade of choice. Grab a coffee/book / Wordly and let the color sit for 15-20 minutes.

STEP 05:

With cool water, rinse hair and squeeze excess water out with a dark towel to avoid stains.

STEP 06:

Dry and style as usual. Try to stifle the regret that you didn’t try this easy, game-changing look sooner.

Low risk, high reward: that’s just good economics. Grab everything you need to create a priceless money piece and tag us @overtonecolor with your color concoctions.
