Fall is here: vampy lips, darker nails, and crimson hair have been popping up everywhere. Bored with my brunette to blonde ombre, I decided to try the Etude House Hot Style Bubble Hair Coloring in the shade Sweet Orange. I did my research and this is not a permanent dye. It admittedly does not cover grays or lighten hair several shades. On my already pre-lightened ombre, the color evened things out and left a coppery impact on my blonde ends. It has a very mild scent (it is ammonia free) and the Silky Perfumed Treatment (Conditioner) has a pleasant, perfumed scent that leans more towards a children’s perfume.
Etude House Hot Style Bubble Hair Coloring
Included in the box are the colorant (#1), the developer bottle (#2), plastic gloves, a vinyl gown, and the Silky Perfumed Treatment. Instructions are provided in Korean, so I hopped on Amazon for a translated step-by-step.
Like similar boxed colors, with gloved hands & gown put on, pour the colorant into the developer bottle. Cap & tilt the bottle back and forth gently to mix. Dispense foam onto hands and apply from roots to ends. Process 20-40 minutes (I processed 35.) Rinse hair with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. Apply the Silky Perfumed Treatment for 2-5 minutes and rinse.
The process was easy, painless, and the pleasant scent was appreciated. My hair color was evened out with a warm auburn hue and my ends were still lighter with a little blonde peaking through. Unfortunately, the color does not last long. After a few washes, it fades considerably. I knew that going in. Other reviewers stated that they got bold results when they used the product twice. I compare the results to using a boxed color like Natural Instincts. It will color your hair but it won’t damage or lift the color.
Etude House Hot Style Bubble Coloring comes in 6 shades and retails for $11.52 on Amazon or $9.80 (plus shipping) from Etude House. Sweet Orange is a beautiful, warm shade & a great transition into fall hair color!
