As hair colour trends go, there is one shade we’ve been in LOVE with season after season that isn’t going anywhere – ROSE.GOLD.
Deemed “the new neutral” by COLOR.ME DESIGN.DIRECTOR, Kate Reid, she forecasts ROSE.GOLD as a fashion staple this year for its ability to be “easy to wear, feminine, and, let’s face it – complementary to endless outfits.”
Spring is always a fun time to mix up your colour, and this season Reid has been prepping hair to play with forever-fashionable ROSE.GOLD. From baby doll pink to a rosé wine wash, blush tones are making a statement. The key to ROSE.GOLD is diagnosing the right shade to suit your clients, from dusty pink to sheer apricot and even a shine-enhancing shimmer. With so many ways to create ROSE.GOLD, Reid takes us through one of her favourite formulas and how to choose the right shade for your client.
To create a multi-tonal effect:
20G 11.3 + 5G 8.66 + 10G CLEAR + 45ml CREAM.ACTIVATOR 10 VOL. (3%)
I use this formula on hair with a good condition, when I need a dense, long-lasting ROSE.GOLD. It colours with depth and creates a beautiful multi-tonal luminosity that lasts.
So, how do I know what’s the right shade for my client?
- Warm, olive, and golden skin tones should stick to warm shades for the most flattering result.
- Neutral skin tones will look radiant in ROSE.GOLD and can pick cooler or warmer versions based on their preference rather than suitability.
- Cooler skin tones may prefer a brighter or lighter shade of rose, pink or cool blush-like shades.
