We just can’t get enough of rose gold hair.
It’s a massive trend of 2018, and we just can’t get enough of looking at fabulous rose gold colour sensations through our rose-tinted glasses!
Don’t believe us? Iskra Lawrence said goodbye to her blonde, Bella Hadid combined her rose gold hair colour with dark roots, Elle Fanning showcased her rose pink hair on Instagram … and the rose gold hair colour hits just keeps on coming!
Is that because rose gold hair looks awesome on absolutely everyone?
We think so! Here are some of our absolute favourite rose gold hair colour ideas:
1. Rose gold ombre
If you’re not quite sure how your boss will react, try this for a toe in the water – rose gold ombre hair. It’s perfect for a brunette, as it only fades into rose pink at the ends.
2. Rose quartz
If you caught Alexander Wang’s Spring Summer 2018 show, you already know all about rose quartz hair. It’s like throwing orchid and lilac into a pot and getting peach hair at the end, with a result that’s easy, practical and still edgy.
3. Metallic rose pink hair
If your rose gold colour preference edges towards the more purple end of the pink scale, you’re probably reaching for dark rose gold hair dye. It’s a rose gold hue that’s almost metallic, and it works best if you crank up the shine.
4. Platinum rose gold hair
For blondes looking to leap onto the rose gold hair colour bandwagon, this platinum variety is an easy first step. We love the lilac magenta root fade/ombre too! We’re talking about rose gold highlights applied in a freehand balayage technique. And this colour and style can also work particularly well if you have a traditional bob style to boot.
5. Red rose gold
If even brighter and even shinier is your cup of tea, try pouring a bit more magenta and pink into your rose gold hair colour. It’s strawberry with the volume turned up, so make sure you love a bold step into the world of rose gold hair. Support this look with professional hair care which is kind to rose gold colour.
6. Peach rose gold
If bright and bold is a step too far, try breathing some fresh warmth into your rose gold hair colour with a touch of peach. This gorgeous colour is particularly easy for those with lighter hair colours. Wella have released some new coral tones in their Colour Create range – mixed with some pink and you have a definite peach rose gold winning formula.
7. Smoky rose gold
For someone with a busy lifestyle who wants a lived-in rose gold colour straight off the bat, try rose gold with a smoky twist. This look requires a full head of colour: the roots and base colour are applied, the lighter sections are achieved through the application the free hand colour balayage technique to lighten the hair in the right places. The lighter hair is then toned with the perfect smoky rose gold formulation.
8. Strawberry rose gold
This variety of rose gold hair is for a dash of lilac and pink on a platinum blonde head – maybe there’s a small amount of truth to blondes having more fun? Especially when they have strawberry rose gold hair! Red heads and brunettes fear not! Just ask your stylist at Lily Jackson Hair and Makeup how you can get some strawberry rose gold love too: root stretch or root fade, balayage or ombre are all available to you. Just ask your stylist.
9. Lilac rose gold
Lilac rose gold highlights are a great way to explore the exciting world of purple, without looking uber drammatic. Just remember to keep these amazing lilac rose gold locks looking good, you need a great shampoo and conditioner and styling products with heat protectants.
10. Light pink rose gold
If you love your layers more than you love the idea of pink hair, experiment with rose gold by going light. Often, it’s the subtle variety with soft bursts of colour that catch the most attention, anyway.
