Celebrities and Instagrammers alike were obsessed this summer with one of the season’s biggest hair color trends: stylish, vivacious pink. The love for pink champagne hair hit us all hard, and celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Keke Palmer and Ashley Benson embraced bright pink hair. But just because the weather’s changed—and along with it, a traditional foray into darker hair hues—doesn’t mean we have to give up pink: a trending metallic shade has inspired the perfect autumn update of summer’s favorite shade.
Soft rose gold is the more metallic, multi-dimensional version of the bubblegum pinks we saw during the summer. Rather than calling for hair to be bleached blond and then dyed light pink, this trend incorporates highlights and lowlights throughout the hair so it doesn’t look flat. The resulting mix of shades makes it look shimmery and metallic, and the wash of pink gives it the rosy tone.
Busy Philipps dyed best friend Michelle Williams’ hair a faded version of pink that matches her own rose gold hair that she DIYs. The duo created the color at home by applying some leave-in hair tint over Williams’ signature platinum blond, but for those of us who want a little extra help getting the look, head to a salon for a professional job that will ensure you achieve the right shade. One of the best parks of this shade is that you don’t have to be blond to work the look: it looks great with darker shades of hair with the help of carefully placed strands of color or ombré.
