Until a few years ago, rose gold was nothing but a swatch on a colour wheel. However, within a few years, everything changed. Suddenly, jewelry had taken a blush tinted turn and every big watch brand now had a rose gold variant. Since the gentle colour makes a wonderful addition to any wardrobe and accessory stash, its popularity is not all that surprising. But little did we know that it was only a matter of time before rose gold made its presence felt in the beauty industry as well, even more surprisingly, in the hair colour department.
Completely in sync with the light tones that summer’s recognized for, the rose gold hair colour has risen to popularity at the right time. It all began at Coachella 2016, when Hollywood actress Emma Roberts debuted a new hair hue termed as ‘Desert Rose’. The keen eye of beauty addicts caught the look and then began implementing it, while personalizing the shade.
In the world of hair colour, rose gold is a delicate copper tone with flecks of pinks. This creates a warm pink-toned shade that is not only wearable but is also subtle enough to actually wear to work. With a trend of this magnitude, it didn’t take much for A-listers like Zosia Mamet and Katy Perry to ride the rose gold wave. Reminiscent of the Pantone locks trend with its delicate hues, we’re predicting that this trend is here to stay.
Expert hair colourists recommend the rose tint for individuals with dark eyes and yellow undertones to their skin. However, the colour can be tweaked according to one’s skin tone for it to be ideal. If you are looking to get with the rose gold hair colour shade, direct your hair colourist accordingly and carry an image for reference to show them exactly what you want.
