What Is Rose Blonde Hair?
Blonde hair will always be in style, but this year it’s getting a refreshing update. Rose blonde hair is a new spin on blonde hair featuring warm rose gold tones. The best part? Rose blonde hair can complement any skin tone, meaning it’s sure to look positively stunning on you!
How Should You Prep for Rose Blonde Hair?
If you already have blonde hair, then you can simply add rose gold tones to your hair to get the look. But if you have black hair and want to rock rose blonde hair, then keep in mind that this is going to take some work. Lightening your hair will require bleaching—and the darker your starting shade, the more time it’ll take to achieve your desired level of rose blonde hair. Of course, you don’t necessarily have to go for a full head of rose blonde hair. If you want to dip your toes into one of 2018’s hottest hair color trends, you can also try it out with ombré hair by just dyeing the ends of your hair.
How Can You Get Rose Blonde Hair?
What do you get when you pair rose gold hair with blonde hair? An absolutely gorgeous, totally on-trend for 2018 shade known as rose blonde. There’s just something so pretty about how rose gold tones pair with blonde hair—so we have a feeling you’re going to want to get in on this hair color trend.
Now it’s time to decide if you want to go to the salon or DIY your hair color. For dramatic hair color changes (such as going from black hair to rose blonde hair), visiting a pro colorist is often the best idea, as they can guide you through the process from start to finish. If you’re more of an at-home hair color kind of gal, then try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Rose Blonde Collection, which comes in Medium Rose Blonde and Dark Rose Blonde. These two rose gold shades feature beautiful warm luminous rose gold tones. Keep a box on hand so that you can touch up your rose blonde hair color when your roots grow in.
What Do Pros Say About Rose Blonde Hair?
Rose blonde hair is one of two hair color trends we're loving for 2018. “Both rose gold and grunge-inspired hair color shades have taken over as digital sensations, editorial obsessions and are now trending in professional,” says Daniel Moon, L’Oréal Paris Hair Color Consulting Colorist and owner of LA-based HAIR salon. “What I love about the new Superior Preference Rose Blonde and Féria Grunge collections are that people are now empowered to recreate the trends themselves at-home.” Read our article, Grunge Goes Glam: How to Get ‘90s-Inspired Smoky Gray Hair with a Twist, for more on the grunge-inspired hair color trend.
What’s the Best Way to Take Care of Rose Blonde Hair?
Once you’re done with your rose blonde hair dye job, take a look at your hair care routine. Color-treated hair requires special care, so reach for a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for colored hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner. Make sure to turn down the temp in the shower as well, since hot water can strip your strands of essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller.
What’s the Best Way to Style Rose Blonde Hair?
Try styling your rose blonde hair into a bouncy blowout. Start with a hair mousse or heat protectant spray, such as the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse or the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray. Then, pick up your blow-dryer and use a round brush to dry your hair. On days when you want to air dry your rose blonde hair and go, spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray and let your hair air dry.
