1. On Blonde Hair
Pale blonde hair is the perfect canvas for rose gold hair. If your client craves an all-over wash, their light base color means the task of pre-lightening can be kept to a minimum. You also have greater control over the color intensity, giving you the option to create a soft, pinky tint or dial up to a heavy metal hue.
To achieve rose gold on lighter hair, try a semi-permanent enhancer, like Color Fresh CREATE. By mixing Nudist Pink and Uber Gold with Tomorrow Clear, you can customise the shade to perfection, like these Passionistas did…
2. On Brown Hair
Think rose gold tones won’t work on light brown hair? Think again. Rose brown hair is gaining traction right now, and it’s essentially the pinky-caramel blend all brown-haired girls have been looking for. For the most Instagrammable finish, think sun-kissed with rose brown color placement, opting for freehand balayage techniques over a root-to-tip approach.
If rose brown is the goal, use Blondor to pre-lighten the rosy sections first, then opt for a formula that gets your hair brimming with shine, such as permanent hair color Illumina Color. This innovative portfolio of shades puts the focus on light-reflective locks, which is ideal when you want that hint of pink to stand out against deeper, warmer roots.
3. On Dark Brown Hair
Getting a rose gold look on dark brunette or black hair can be a challenge. It requires a salon visit (or two) for the lightening process, another one for the hair to be colored, then follow-up appointments to tone and refresh that rosy shade. It’s worth it for the final effect, but for clients hoping to avoid all-over lightening, suggest bands of rose gold color that make just as much of an impact. Then, create the rose gold ribbons using permanent hair color, Koleston Perfect. You want to use a hair-kind blend, and this one results in less damage color after color
