Amazing Sew-In Bob Haircut With Golden Blonde Hair Color

Bobs are an awesome cut that showcases the movement your hair makes as you walk by. Many Black women have taken the bob to a whole new level by incorporating this elegant haircut into a protective hairstyle. Using human hair additions over your own hair, professional hairstylists throughout the Black community are creating artistic and innovative sew-in bob hairstyles that look great and keep your own hair safe from the elements also. 

Mikiko also gave her model a customized golden blonde hair color that highlights her natural features. The color also accentuates the layers in the bob haircut. This model had tried an at-home color system beforehand. Mikiko went in and devised a precise formulation that would create the exact hue the model was going for. Then she duplicated that process to create that color for the human hair extensions used in this sew-in bob hairstyle.

Human Hair Additions Give This Bob More Versatility

Mikiko insisted on using human hair additions to create this sew-in bob hairstyle. Human hair gives the professional hairstylist more versatility. You have options like creating curl patters with heat that aren’t available with synthetic hair additions. Mikiko was careful to choose a texture of human hair additions that precisely matched her model’s own hair also. The hair additions are more responsive to the angles and layers of the bob haircut also. Mikiko went a step further and feathered this sew-in bob hairstyle to add texture and give her model a softer look.

Let’s Talk About Healthy Hair

While many Black women love to wear sew-in bob hairstyles, some have overlooked the need to protect their own hair as well. Mikiko Boyd is careful to give her clients a detailed, healthy hair maintenance routine. She starts off with an in-depth client consultation on your first visit. Once Mikiko has a definite understanding of your desires and the type of environment your face on a daily basis, she creates a plan that will give you your dream hairstyle and keep your hair healthy at the same time.

Mikiko started this sew-in bob hairstyle by giving her model a protein treatment a week before the sew-in. Protein treatments infuse nutrients into the hair and build the porosity levels in the hair. It also helps the color to process evenly.

On the day of the install, Mikiko braids her model’s own hair leaving the top out to blend in with the hair additions. Once the human hair additions are installed, Mikiko cut her model’s hair into the feathered bob hairstyle and applied the custom color application.

Taking Care of Your Sew-in Bob at Home

Mikiko gave her model an incredibly simple home care routine also. She needs to only wrap their hair at night with a silk or satin bonnet. Then use some type of silicone-based shine spray during the day. The shine spray should be weightless and oil-free also. Mikiko recommends using Influance S-3 Spray.
