Peek-a-boo is the familiar “coo-coo-ca!” that we have all played with our babies. First, we hide our eyes with our hands and then suddenly reveal them. This movement causes laughter in the baby, which is quickly transmitted to us.
For adults, a baby’s laughter is the greatest pleasure. So, the repetition of this interactive game is done over and over again. Peek-A-Boo!
Ku-ku-za! Now also in the hair!
If you want a change in hair without touching the color of the base, I found the solution! Peek-A-boo hair!
Just by the name alone we understand that it is something hidden and revealed. But let’s go and see what this peek-a-boo is that we’re going to be quite busy with in 2022.
What is peek-a-boo?
Peek-a-boo is a colour technique in which the inner parts – which are hidden – have a different colour from the rest of the top. Essentially, when the hair falls naturally, the technique is not revealed. But when the hair is styled in the curly-wavy style, then an amazing sight appears. A feast for the eyes!
However, the peek-a-boo becomes even more impressive when the hair is in braids or caught in a pony tail.
Where did it get the name?
Which Hollywood star was the first teacher? Actress Veronica Lake, in the 1940s, was the first to appear in film noir with the peek-a-boo technique in her hair. Of course, it was the image of the sexy, femme fatale, blonde with the long broken hair that caught the eyes of the male population. But also many women wanted to look like her and so the peek-a-boo was “worn” a lot in the hair. It was a look that exuded mysterious beauty.
The peek-a-boo today
By changing the color at the bottom of the head, you create an effect you’ll love! The peek-a-boo becomes even more impressive when you choose bright colors like blue, green, turquoise or even pastel combinations! I won’t hide from you that my favorite is the rainbow peek-a-boo!
You can also discolour the fringe, as well as the side sections. As you can see, the options are endless and each one is different!
And I saved you something good for last! Maintaining the peek-a-boo won’t tire you out, since the color inside the hair can fade or go down quite a bit without being noticed. All you need to do is use a Color safe shampoo and a moisturizing conditioner.
Did I convince you? If not to continue….
