It started with Kaia, Kendal and Barbie, and now Emrata has just debuted the trend…we think it’s safe to say copper will be one of the top hair color trends of the season. 

Ranging from global color applications to just the tips, copper hair tints are quickly becoming a coveted shade. This comes as the peak summer color trends are beginning to debut — a time when hues are already on track to warm up. Taking the place of pandemic pink, copper is a more natural hue that still packs just as much punch. It gives wearers the ability to take a risk with their style with slightly easier upkeep than bold fashion shades. 

The Trendsetters:

Kaia Gerber

Appearing here as more of an auburn, when this shade hits the light it really reflects. An ideal level for brunette shades who aren’t looking to lighten. Ask for a gloss to add a touch of warmth. 


Kendal Jenner

With a touch more drama, Kendal has debuted a darker red tone to her normally brunette shade. 


Barbie Ferreira

We can’t help but fall in love with Barbie Ferreira’s shade. This Euporia star chose a bright and bold rendition of red, a color she rocks brilliantly while matching her new look to her wardrobe. 


Emily Ratajkowski

Emrata turns up the heat with her tone. Settling on a deep shade to subtly enhance her brunette base, we love this color paired with her undone beach wave. 


The Copper Shades:

Ranging from penny to pastel, you can start off with a darker copper shade and easily transition to a lighter rendition as color washes out. If you’re unsure what kind of copper suits you, consider starting with a higher level gloss and transitioning darker as you see fit. 


Products To Get The Look:

Redken Shades EQ, Wella Professionals Shinefinity and Wella Professionals Color Masks are all ideal choices to get the look. With the ability to add tone to previously lightened hair, Redken Shades EQ and Wella Professionals Shinefinity can be applied at the salon by a professional. IF you need extra upkeep (as is usually the case with red tones) Wella Professionals Color Masks are an at-home option to add tone and extend the life of your color.
