If you’ve looked at what’s trending on your social media feeds lately, then you’re well aware that rose gold hair is the it hair color of the moment. And, if you’re like us, you’re swooning with jewelry-toned hair envy. With beauty bloggers, social media cool girls, and Hollywood’s hottest celebs illustrating just how versatile rose gold hair is for all skin tones, it’s not surprising that you’d want to get in on the season’s must-try hair color trend and rock your very own rose gold hair color. In an effort to bring rose gold hair to life, we’ve outlined the basics of this can’t-look-away hair color. Keep reading to find out how to dye your hair a rose gold hair color at home and how to take care of rose gold hair once you have it with the right shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask for colored hair, and how to style rose gold hair with a variety of styling products, including air dry hair spray for beachy waves.
Just like any big hair color change, it’s important to know what you’re getting into first. In order to dye your hair rose gold, you’ll need to bleach your hair first (unless you have blonde hair or your hair has already been lightened). And the darker your starting shade, the more sessions it may take to reach your desired rose gold hair color. Plus, keep in mind that there are actually a few different types of rose gold hair, which we’re outlining for you below.
To get a true rose gold hair color, use the L’Oréal Paris Féria Fashion Metallics in Rose Gold, which comes with a developer creme, conditioning developer, hair serum, and conditioner. This rose gold hair color is perfect for the more daring individual who wants an intense hair color that really stands out.
For a more classic blonde with a touch of rose gold, use 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. (Read our article, Rose Gold Hair Gets an Update: How to Get Rose Blonde Hair, for more on rose blonde hair, one of our favorite hair colors for 2018.)
If you’re looking to temporarily test-drive a super-metallic rose gold hair hue before making a commitment, pick up the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Rose Gold. To use, shake the can well, then hold it 4-6 inches away from dry hair and spray (style your hair first before using). Hold the can as upright as possible and use a piece of paper to guard your face or direct where you want to spray rose gold color. Wait a few minutes for your rose gold hair color to dry completely—and don’t spray too much. Your rose gold hair color will become more visible as it dries. Keep in mind that color can transfer, like makeup.
As with all colored hair, rose gold hair should be shown the care it deserves! So, follow our tips below for caring for rose gold hair.
Turn down the temp in the shower. Super-hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, which can make it feel drier and look duller. Help prevent that by turning down the dial and rinsing off your rose gold hair in lukewarm water instead.
Choose hair care products formulated for color-treated hair. Consider using a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm. Massage shampoo into wet hair, lather, and rinse, then follow by applying the conditioner, leaving that on for one to three minutes before washing out. Swap out the conditioner for the hair mask once or twice a week.
Keep heat tools to a minimum. Pair your rose gold hair with easygoing waves or curls. Air dry your hair with heat-free styling products, like hair mousse, hair cream, or hair spray. Use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to style your hair sans heat. If you would like to style your rose gold hair into a sleek blowout, make sure to use a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, first.
Now that you know what goes into getting rose gold hair, it’s time to move onto rose gold makeup. Check out our article, How to Do Rose Gold Makeup.
