Earring Guide pt 1

How to wear: Hoops

There are so many styles of earrings on the market but perhaps the main one where people can get a little stuck with are the ever popular hoops. With a number of closure designs, some can be a little trickier to put in than others. This guide looks at the endless hoops and the hook closure hoops and how to wear your hoops with minimum difficulty. Once they are in place they should feel comfortable and secure all day long.

Before you begin it is handy to have the following:

  • Mirror
  • Cotton pad misted with water or mild cleanser
  • Good lighting

Okay lets get started!

How to ear: Endless hoops

Smallhoops010

These are seamless and designed to move freely (360 degrees) through the ear.   These hoops are suitable for cartilage piercings and other body piercings as well as on the earlobe.

  1. Prep the skin by swiping a damp cotton pad over the ear lobe or area of the piercing. This ensures that you have a clean base and removes any grease or chemicals that could transfer onto the earring
  2. Take the hoop and carefully twist it apart to open
  3. With one end insert the earring into the hole and once it has gone through take the other end     and with your fingers and thumb squeeze the ends back together so that they are flush. Adjust until you can turn the hoop smoothly through the ear without catching.
