Pastel hair is still a hot trend this year. Some have chosen to go bold with purple and turquoise. Others have opted for more subtle change, such as lavender or light pink. If you're thinking about joining in on the trend and choosing rose gold hair, check out our guide to decide if this look will work for you.
Is Rose Gold Right for You?
Not everyone can pull off every color. The rose gold shade works best for those with a fair complexion, pink undertones to their skin and hair that naturally has red tones. Because rose gold is a light shade, it's much easier to create for those who have blonde hair.
Subtle or Solid?
For those who aren't sure about diving into the colored hair trend, or those who may not have the ideal complexion for rose gold, highlights may be the solution. Bringing color to just a few sections of hair can give any cut a more feminine and glam look.
For more of an impact, choose a rose gold ombre. This is a great solution for brunettes as well as those who don't want to put as much effort into maintaining an all over look. Finally, choosing an all-over rose gold can give your hair a fun, funky, cotton candy look that will spark hair envy everywhere you go.
Rose Gold for Brunettes
While naturally light hair is easier to transform into a rose gold shade, brunettes can get in on the trend as well. The trick is to develop the color through a series of several steps. First, your stylist will lighten the ends of your hair to become a bright blonde. Then, a hair painting technique can be applied to the ends, as well as through highlights starting at the top of the hair. Finally, a gloss layer can pull the look together, preventing the transition from brunette to rose gold from looking too harsh.
Maintaining the Look
Because pastel shades are becoming so popular, many at-home hair care brands are trying to cash in on the trend. However, there aren't any at-home products that will allow you to freshen up a rose gold look while keeping it pretty and polished. You'll need to be willing to go back for frequent salon visits to keep up with your look.
