Rose gold hair isn’t new to the beauty scene, but its concentrated counterpart, rose gold highlights, have only begun to make their appearance. This hair color trend is exactly what it sounds like: orangey-pink metallic highlights laced throughout your mane for strands that are full of dimension and life. It’s safe to say we can’t get enough of the look, and neither can our fellow hair color aficionados. Ahead, we share how to get rose gold highlights to bring the trend to life.
How To Get Rose Gold Highlights
When it comes to giving rose gold highlights a try, there are two options: head to the salon or DIY them at home. If you opt for the former, do yourself a favor and scroll through Pinterest in search of a plethora of inspiration pictures. Trust us, your colorist will thank you. If you’re more of a DIY gal, you’ll be happy to hear that rose gold highlights can be easily achieved at home with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Rosegold. This temporary hair color spray can be applied wherever you’d like for the perfect metallic twist. Since the color washes out in just one shampoo, you don’t have to stress over potential mistakes or long-term commitment.
How Long Do Rose Gold Highlights Last?
Factors like how often you wash your hair and the type of rose gold hair dye that’s used to highlight your hair will play a role in the lifespan of your rose gold highlights. That said, a hair-care routine for color-treated hair will help your color stay vibrant longer. Swap your go-to system for the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
6 Rose Gold Highlight Ideas
There’s more than one way to try rose gold highlights. If you’re in need of some hair color inspiration, consider one of our rose gold highlight ideas below.
#1. Rose Gold Highlights On Brown Hair
One of our favorite ways to rock the rose gold highlight trend is by adding them to a brown base. The warm-toned metallic hue will help bring out the warm undertones in your brunette mane.
#2. Rose Gold Balayage
If you’re a fan of low-maintenance hair colors, then rose gold balayage highlights are the technique for you. For this look, your colorist will hand-paint rose gold strands throughout your mane where the sun would naturally hit. Since the color will be focused at your mid-length to ends, you won’t have to worry about regular salon visits as your hair starts to grow.
#3. Blonde Hair With Rose Gold Highlights
Those with blonde hair don’t have to pass on the rose gold highlight trend. In fact, rose gold highlights look equally as stunning on blonde hair as they do on brunette strands. This metallic color is perfect for adding subtle definition to a champagne blonde base.
#4. Rose Gold Money Piece
Put your rose gold highlights front and center with a rose gold money piece. Rather than having rose gold highlights throughout your mane, your colorist will paint your face-framing strands for a look that pops.
#5. Rose Gold Foils
If you’re one for an upgraded classic, you can’t go wrong with rose gold foil highlights. For this look, your colorist will create uniform rose gold highlights throughout your hair for an all-over dimensional look that glistens.
#6. Rose Gold Highlights on Red Hair
Brunettes and blondes don’t have to have all the fun—redheads can too! Rose gold highlights are a great way to accentuate natural red hair without going overboard. We particularly love them on a ginger base, as they beautifully emphasize the red undertones.
