2-Tone Color Without Bleaching

Hello there! In this article, we’ll talk about the details of one of our coloring style - Yinyang 2-tone color without bleaching. Basically, everything about this coloring style, the origin, the photos, color choices, and also the promotion of this coloring style at the end.

Before that, let me start with a photo of this Yinyang 2-tone color.


If you have been following us since 2019, this should be quite familiar to you. This is a Dark Purple base with Copper on the inside.

That’s right, Yinyang 2-tone color consists of 2 different layers of direct color without bleaching or lifting. You might think it looks similar to the underlight or earloop highlights.


This is partially modeled after that as we’re trying to create a non-bleach option for this kind of 2-layer style. Before our Japan Smoky Color days, there were many requests from our customers asking if we could do something similar to the underlight but in a less damaging way, in other words, without bleaching, and we came up with this!


What makes it different is that usually for the underlight, the hair will be bleached around the lower half of the hair but for the Yinyang, the inner layer can be dyed at a higher position, giving more emphasis on the second layer.


Without any bleaching or lifting, you can do colors like the different shades of brown, dark/light/normal brown, dark red, dark purple, copper, dark green, bluish green, and gold.


Let’s take a look at more examples


Dark Brown with Light Brown



Dark Green with Light Green



Dark Purple with Brown



Dark Purple with Light Copper



Light Brown with Light Green



Bluish Green with Red


Most of the photos are taken under exposure to sunlight so you can see the light reflection on the hair. Without bleaching, for example, for the Bluish Green above, it will be a subtle bluish-green color for the outer layer. Let’s take a closer look at the hair. You can see the red inner layer better in this photo below. Green tones with red is a very good combination with good contrast.

Also, as this is done without bleaching, the outcome will depend heavily on your current hair color. For example, if you have been consistently coloring black or dark brown, the outcome will be darker in comparison with somebody with light brown hair.


With that said, this is going to be our Service of the Month for May 2021 -

My suggestion: If you have a full-length bleached hair, you can consider doing this to transform the blonde hair into a combination that you like. As the hair has already been bleached, you have a wider choice of colors to choose from. Maybe a dark brown with ash brown? Or maybe a dark purple and ash purple? Or if you did the underlight before with the inner layer already bleached, you can consider doing this too.


Or you prefer the inner layer to be bleached and do a lighter color, there will be a small top-up for the bleaching on the inner layer. Alternatively, you might not be keen on bleaching the hair but want a lighter color, that is okay too, we have our lifting to do the Japan Smoky Color on the inner layer. Just send us a message and talk to us. We can discuss that further.

And we have reached the end of this article. This coloring style has been with us for quite a number of years, it helps us a lot as a firm foundation to pursue and create other coloring styles.


Thank you so much for reading! I will attach more photos on the inner layer done with bleaching so that you can make a comparison and decide which one you’re going for. Stay safe and healthy! :)
