Welcome to 2018, a time when natural hair colors are being taken to the next level. Whereas once upon a time choosing a new hair color was as simple as picking between blonde hair, brown hair, black hair, and red hair, nowadays buzzworthy hair color trends are paving the way for shades like chai latte hair and, one of our personal favorites, copper gold hair. Instead of lightening your strands into a generic strawberry blonde hair color, it’s time to consider hopping on the metallic bandwagon. This is a seriously pretty hair color idea that stays true to a gingery-blonde hue. Sound like it might fit your fancy? Keep reading to learn everything there is to know about this year’s beloved copper gold hair color trend.
Copper gold hair is a pale red hair color revved up with lighter babylights that blend effortlessly for a warm hair color that borders on the edge of rose gold. Similar to strawberry blonde hair, copper gold hair mixes red and blonde tones for a shimmering, light-bending effect that instantly warms the complexion and brings attention front and center.
We’re firm believers that you should try any hair color you’d like! However, when it comes down to logistics, the warm strawberry blonde hues of copper gold hair make it so fairer complexions with naturally lighter hair colors can rock it best. That being said, if you still want to get in on the trend, ask your colorist if he or she can slightly tweak the warmer colors so that they more closely match your undertones.
Depending on your skin’s undertones, your colorist will be able to determine which dye shades will bring a copper gold hair color to life for your complexion. Where warm reds and blondes pair well with warm undertones, cool undertones are better suited with icy, neutral hues. Regardless of your starting hair color or your undertones, your colorist will be able to tailor the look to your specific needs to create a multi-faceted approach to the trendy look.
First and foremost, you should bring an inspiration picture that represents exactly what you want. From there, discuss with your colorist the different methods to obtaining a copper gold hair color so that you won’t be disappointed with the final result. And keep in mind that if you’re adding golden highlights to your hair, this will require bleaching. The darker your starting shade, the more sessions it may take to achieve your desired level of copper gold hair.
If you're more of a DIY dyer, then you're in luck. You can take the copper gold hair color trend for a spin by using the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Copper. Make sure to follow the instructions included with the packaging.
Like all shades in the red hair color family, copper gold hair will require an updated hair care routine. Here, we share a few simple ways to make the most of your pretty new hair color, so take note!
1. Use products formulated for color-treated hair. Stock your shower with a system of nourishing shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair, such as the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner. Then, once or twice a week, swap out the conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Renourishing Butter to give your locks the extra TLC they deserve.
2. Turn down the heat. It’s not just about the products you use, either. Show your strands some love by turning down the dial in the shower—after all, scalding hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving your hair feeling dry and looking dull. Rinse off in lukewarm water instead.
3. Skip the heat tools to give your hair a break. Copper gold hair looks so pretty when paired with curls or waves, so spritz some of the L’Oréal Paris Advenced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto wet hair, then let your hair air dry for natural, carefree waves.
