Balayage, opal, and even denim colour trends have encouraged us to experiment with our hair, and the latest rose gold trend looks set to be the hottest hair colour this summer. Metal items with rose gold tones have been all over our interiors, dominated our accessory collection, and even been featured in what we wear. Now stylists are expertly introducing hints of gold and dusky pinks to copper tones, to create a gorgeously wearable tone. It's a pretty take on the cooler shades of the blonde balayage. The rose gold colour is made up of four base colours brown, pink, blonde, and red which can be personalised to suit any hair texture and length. Being relatively low maintenance it only looks better as it softens and blends: the perfect mix of grown up grunge!
Emma Roberts and Sienna Miller's colourists have clearly taken inspiration from the catwalks with their desert rose colourings. Carven showcased feminine soft colours, whilst Vivienne Westwood took the trend and gave it a twist with models wearing rose gold coloured wigs. But this tone is not just reserved for celebrities or high fashion models, it can work to suit anyone looking for a fresh summer look. Fancy a bit of a change? Here's The Chapel's guide to achieving gorgeous rose gold locks.
Keep your cut sharp and wear your hair straight to enhance shine and really show off this multi-dimensional colour. But if perhaps you prefer a more relaxed look, add loose waves to give your colour a sense of fluidity. Use shine spray or serum to calm flyaways and make the light bounce off the hair shaft.
Soft updos with twists and loose braids will work perfectly with this trend. What's more wearing your hair up and blasting with dry shampoo will allow you to skip washing and give your colour longevity. Try weaving contrasting metal accessories through your hair to add interest to your updo. Combine with delicate copper grips and slides, high shine eyes lined with natural brown eyeliner, and finish with a matte lip. Fresh dewy skin with rose gold hair gives a great natural finish, and a truly spellbinding finished look.
Rose gold colouring can be striking or subtle : an adaptable trend which really can work for anyone. It's definitely worth gathering inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest which will help to build your own rose gold colour board full of the shades and styles you would like to achieve. Visually being able to show what colour result you are looking to achieve will help you to communicate with your stylist, and help them to envisage the look you are going for.
