Rose Gold Brunettes

Metallic hair colors have been trending lately, with copper and bronze strands taking over our Instagram and Pinterest feeds. But, you might be thinking that this look can be hard to achieve if your hair is darker than blonde — without bleaching your whole head. Well, we’ve got a solution for you.

If you want to dip your toes into trying a bright, colorful shade we suggest one of our favorite trends — rose gold brunette. As the name suggests, you can add tones of your favorite jewelry finish to your hair while still keeping your natural dark hair. With the help of a few hair products, you can make all your rose gold hair dreams come true. Keep reading to see how to achieve it and how to create a makeup look that complements your new mane. 

 

What You Need to Know Before Getting Brunette Rose Gold Hair

If you want to start by testing the waters instead of transitioning directly into having permanent (or semi-permanent) rose gold hair, use a temporary hair color, like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Rosegold. This hair color will wash out after one use, giving you the perfect option if you’re slightly hesitant about this hair color trend. To use, shake the can well, then hold it 4-6 inches away from dry hair and spray on the color. Wait a few minutes for the color to dry completely. Don’t spray too much hair color at once, since it’ll become more visible as it dries.

If you want to rock brunette rose gold hair for longer than just one day but are still skeptical about committing for the long haul, you can use a semi-permanent rose gold shade so you’ll be free to change up your color again in a matter of weeks.

If you’re totally sold on this hair color trend (and who wouldn’t be?), opt for a permanent hair dye. If you’re starting out with super dark hair, keep in mind that you’ll need to use a hair color bleach to lighten your locks just a little bit. Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Bleach in All Over to give you all over lightened hair. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to play with rose gold hair color.

Use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Rose Gold, which comes with everything you need to add rose gold hues to your brunette locks. Just be sure to follow the included instructions carefully, no one wants to experience a permanent hair dye mishap.

How To Take Care of Brunette Rose Gold Hair

If you’ve decided to take the leap and get rose gold hair, congrats! It’s truly a magnificent hair color that looks good on everyone. However, it’s important to take care of your new hair color properly. That means using a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask that are safe for color-treated hair

 

Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Signature Color Care Masque.

 

You also want to make sure you’re using a hair gloss so that the color stays toned and looking fresh. Use the L’Oréal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss after washing your hair. It only takes fifteen minutes to give your strands a color boost and glossy shine.

To keep your brunette rose gold color lasting longer, try to style your hair without using heat tools. Switch to a heat free hair styling regimen, using the L’Oréal Paris CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to create effortless waves and avoid heat damage. Of course, you aren’t limited to air dried waves. You can take a break from heat tools while trying out a variety of no-heat hairstyles.


How to Wear Makeup with Brunette Rose Gold Hair

Now that you have brunette rose gold hair, you’ll want to try out a trendy makeup look to complement your newly colored locks. Using your makeup to accent your hair color is a total must and we’re here to help you do it.


Step 1. Create Your Base

To start your makeup look off right, you want to have a great base. Use the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect 4-in-1 Tinted Face Balm Foundation for a radiant, even finish which will lay the groundwork for a gorgeous look.


Step 2. Add Subtle Color

Once the foundation of your makeup look is done, it’s time to add some color to your look. Use a neutral blush shade, such as the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Lip and Cheek Tint in Ethereal Blush, to create a subtle flush. Apply this blush to the high points of the cheekbones to help define your features and give your makeup a lifting effect.


Step 3: Highlight

To continue defining your facial features, use a highlighter to accent certain points of your face. Using a golden toned highlighter will best complement the tones in your hair color. Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer in the shades Medium or Deep to your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, below and above the arch of your eyebrows, and along the bridge of your nose to reflect the rose gold highlights. 


Step 4: Define Your Eyes

The makeup look truly revolves around your eyes. By using gold eyeshadow, you will complement your hair color without creating an over-the-top eye. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Amber Rush on your eyelids, and add a bold finish by drawing on winged eyeliner — using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner in Brown to flatter your new coloring. Round out your eye makeup by applying a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Black Brown.


Step 5: Color Your Pout

The last step for this brunette rose gold hair color inspired makeup look is to choose a lip color. You want to use one in the peach family, which will complement your brunette rose gold hair without taking attention away from your tresses. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Glossy Fawn, the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick with Pomegranate Extract, and the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Satin Lipstick with Precious Oils in Radiant Bronze are all great choices.
