10 Ways to Try The Rose Gold Hair Color Trend

Everything's coming up roses.

Stop what you’re doing, open up your Instagram and search the #rosegoldblonde hashtag. Swooning yet? Us too! Rose gold hair color is a trend that, surprisingly, can easily transition from season to season, but looks particularly fetching during the warmer months (maybe all those spring florals?). Many would think dark hair colors are better for that, but rose gold hair works just as well. While the color looks super cool, it comes with its own set of rules (sorry, you may not want to try this dye job at home) so be sure to consult a stylist before trying it on your own at home.

Digging this look? Whether you want to wear this rose gold hair color trend on a bob, lob or with micro bangs, let us help you decide if the rose gold hair color idea is ideal for you:

Hair Color Ideas: Nailing the Rose Gold Hair Color Trend

The rose gold trend is one of the most unexpected hair color ideas for fall. Love it? Try it out and step into the new season with a bold statement.

1. Temporary Hair Color

Altering the color of your hair is a huge commitment, consider a temporary look before making your final decision. For a fun D.I.Y. project and to get a sense of how your blonde or light brown hair looks with the rose gold hue, use pink hair chalks or a colored hairspray to try the rose gold blonde trend out. This method is safe and temporary; if you don’t like it, wash it on out.

2. Leave it up to your colorist.

This may not be the best dye job to try at home. To get the look hair is bleached to lift the hairs to a golden hue then a tinted gloss is added to create the rose gold color. Colorists use specific techniques to ensure the color doesn’t come out looking blotchy or spotty—something you may not be able to nail on your own.

3. Rose Gold Ombré

The balayage hair color is a great way to ease your way into this trend. If you want to create a bolder statement ask your stylist to mix in darker tones of pink. To keep it simple stick with one shade, and one that’s more neutral like a copper or buttery tone.

Consider going for balayage if you’re after a look that looks a feels a bit more natural. If you have blonde balayage already and would like to try the rose gold hair trend, you can apply a gloss on top of your hair to switch up your look.

6. Choppy Bob

Style your new hair color into a fun bob style. Choppy layers on short thin hair help create the illusion of body and movement. To maintain your color, opt for washing your hair with cooler water, since hot water might be too drying on the cuticle. Also, switch out your traditional shampoo and conditioner for color-safe alternatives. We suggest using Suave Vivid Color Shampoo and Suave Vivid Color Conditioner to protect and moisturize your color-treated hair.
