4 different ways to play with rose gold hair

Wondering how to get rose gold hair that stands out from the crowd? We've got four different ways you can ensure your pink hairstyle is the belle of the ball.

A head of roses

One of this year's prettiest and most popular shades, why not go all in and get a full head of rose gold hair? Remember, rose gold hair has several shades, so if you'd rather a more subtle everyday look, opt for a rose brown hair colour instead, which uses a little more purple/blue tone to it; creating a darker rose shade that's ideal for transitioning into fall.

Top tip: Whenever you colour your hair, make sure you're using colour-protecting shampoo and conditioner that will protect and nourish the quality of your hair (especially if you've lightened your hair in order to go rose gold) as well as a weekly masque to lock in moisture and prevent dryness.

Highlights

Not ready to go 100% pink? Rose gold highlights are perfect for a range of occasions! Just a few sections of bright, cheery pink-golf against a base of blonde can create a hippie-inspired look that shows your free-spirited nature. If you'll need to make your rose gold highlights more discreet once you're back at school or work, ask your stylist to colour a section that can easily be tucked behind your ear or hidden under the rest of the hair if necessary.

Top tip: Sun exposure isn't just damaging to the skin, the hair can also suffer from UV rays. When you're out and about (even in winter) remember to apply a protective spray to your hair.

Ombré

Usually associated with brunette-to-blonde colour gradients, ombré hair colour can be applied to any shade. A rose gold ombre is a way of working the popular multi-tonal blend into an even more on-trend look. From soft strawberry blonde to coral bronze and even dusky golden lilac, there are multiple tones that you can use for a rose gold ombré. Simply ask your stylist what shade is best for your hair and skin tone. Then it's up to you how demarcated you want the colour gradient to appear (how obviously the root colour evolves into the tip color along the hair.)

Top tip: An ombré hair colour is both pretty and practical when it comes to growing it out (if you want to). Just ask your stylist to trim the ends a little each time, and gradually introduce sections of your next goal colour into the hair at the top. As the ombre disappears down the lengths, your new colour will subtly replace it. Seamless!

Balayage

Not everyone understands the difference between an ombré and a balayage when to comes to hair colour. Knowing the literal French definitions helps with picturing the two hair colour techniques: "ombré" means "shaded" – think of one colour shading into another – whereas "balayage" means "to sweep" – imagine sweeping a brush of colour across another colour (and sometimes multiple shades), where they exist alongside one-another.

This rose gold balayage shows how the different pink tones are swept over a blonde base, from root to tip. Your stylist will choose exactly where to sweep over the rose gold pigments to best flatter your complexion, face shape and base hair colour.

Top tip: balayage looks its best when the highlights/lowlights share the same tone to your base colour. So, if you're working a cool beige blonde, for example, opt for golden pinks with blue or purple tones. Alternatively, if your hair is a warm caramel or coppery blonde, pink highlights with red and orange undertones will look amazing.
