You’re in the market for a new hair color. You want something fresh and trendy, but not too in-your-face. We’ve got you on this one! The answer is rose gold hair color.
It checks all your boxes. It’s cool and interesting—definitely not boring. It can be adjusted to work with every skin tone. It can be subtle so maintenance isn’t unmanageable. And when you’re done, you can be done—it won’t haunt your new color.
Rose gold hair color can be any combination of pink, peach, violet, rose, coral, salmon, sand, blush or gold. It can be applied all over, as highlights or slices, or as a balayage or ombré effect. It can be applied with a subtle hand or it can be designed for a vivid effect.
