Blonde and sun-kissed brunettes have long been the summer go-to when it comes to hair color trends, but this season copper is taking over the top spot!
A fan-favorite when it comes to warm shades, copper can take on a range of levels to deliver high impact results. From adding a hint of undertone to brunettes to taking blondes into the strawberry blonde spectrum, copper is the tone making everyone blush this season. Similar in impact to fashion shades that took the salon by force last season, clients everywhere are trading in their pandemic pink and Pantone Very Peri for copper.
Curious why everyone is obsessed with copper? Ask anyone who’s taken the plunge on the warm side and they’ll rave about the ability to add a vibrant change within a more natural-looking shade. In addition to this, the down to earth color has easier upkeep than fashion shades while retaining the same feeling of transformation.
How to pick your hue:
Similar to any hair color, it is best to pick your shade based on skin tone. Those with warmer undertones usually gravitate toward warmer coppers with golden or orange hints while those with cool skin tones choose hues with cool red hints. Take your pick from deep copper to vibrant penny shades or even a light pastel, if you aren’t sure which shade will suit you start off with a slight tint and go darker as the season progresses. If you’re unsure about a total transformation ask your stylist to add a few lowlights or accent highlights with a copper hue, this will allow you to test out the color before committing.
Copper Hair Color Inspiration:
This shade is a great transition for brunettes and low level blondes looking for a fierce shade as we transition to fall.
Looking to add a touch of spice? The addition of a bold blonde money piece allows anyone to truly make a statement.
For those who want just a touch of copper, this pastel version is ideal for anyone who wants to try on the trend without a total commitment. Add a wash of copper over previously lightened blondes for the perfect peach!
