We cannot get enough of rose gold. We want our jewellery rose gold, our stationary rose gold and even our laptops – you guessed it – rose gold. It’s an unbelievably pretty hue, and we’ve yet to reach rose gold saturation point – in fact, if anything, it’s hotter than ever right now. The latest way to show your love for this chic metallic is on your locks – that’s right, rose gold hair is now a thing and we are very into it.
Emma Roberts was the first to pique our interest in this new shade, after sharing a snap of her freshly-minted tresses. It’s less coral than strawberry blonde, yet softer than auburn, and (if you use enough conditioner) you can even pack in the mirror-like shine of the metal itself. On Emma’s alabaster complexion, it adds a flash of summery warmth to her cheeks, but if you’re more tan, you could opt for a shades that’s stronger on the red tones.
Of course, other A Listers have been at it as well. Kylie Jenner changes her hair colour quicker than we can blink, but she plumped for a peachy-rose shade over Coachella – of course, being Kylie, she also had her hair waist-length and unbelievably thick, but you know, she doesn’t do things by halves. Kylie’s wig budget is probably steeper than your average mortgage these days.
We predict that we’ll be seeing a lot more of this shade as summer rolls in. It’s perfect for festivals (commitaphobes can use one of those jazzy wash-in, wash-out dyes) or you could try the rose gold in a kind of ombre effect just on the ends of your hair.
