15 dreamy shades of rose gold hair—and how to get them

15 dreamy shades of rose gold hair—and how to get them

As if rose gold jewelry, phone cases, furniture and makeup already wasn’t the stuff of your dreams, rose gold hair color has been making its mark.
“Rose gold hair color is balancing the perfect mix of blonde, gold and light pink,” says Maddison Cave from the David Mallett salon in New York. “It looks a little different on everyone and may require more pink or gold depending on the color you are starting with.”
Cave says there are a few things to consider when going rose gold—namely, your eyes, skin tone and natural hair color. Fair skin, for example, calls for warming up your base color, known as a base bump, before adding a pinkish gold gloss.
“If your skin tone is darker or olive, I would suggest some ombré highlights and using a more heavy duty, demi-permanent color on the previously lightened pieces,” she says.
Also important? Bringing pictures of people who have a similar skin tone to yours to let your stylist know what you are seeking. “[Photos] help to communicate the exact shade you are looking for, but don’t be afraid to be open to your colorists’ creativity,” Cave says.

This balayage look is proof that soft rose gold tones can work on brunettes, too. But take note—there will be hair color bleach involved to lighten your hair enough that the tint will stick around.
8. Classic Rose Gold

| ˢᵀᴬᵀᴱᴹᴱᴺᵀ ᵂᴵᵀᴴ ˢᴵᴹᴾᴸᴵᶜᴵᵀʸ | If you happen to be at ISSELB watching me teach you would’ve heard me touch on this! I love a good blend of color but I’m truly moving more towards (and have been for a while) using simplicity to make a statement within the looks I create. I think there is room for both types of looks and everything in between. What do you think – Wild or subtle? Somewhere in between? Using @pulpriothair rose gold toner on hair with warmth in it before applying. Always remember the canvas you’re applying to will have an effect on the color results. Using @love_amika Brooklyn bombshell and blockade to finish out this style all available at @saloncentric #pulpriothair A post shared by LA/ENCINO COLORIST OLAPLEX (@thejesjewel) on Feb 12, 2019 at 11:17am PST

This rose gold lob from @thejesjewel is enough to make anyone green (pink?) with envy.
