Rose Gold Hair Trend

A stunning blend of red, pink and blonde shades created the perfect mix of rose gold hair that truly complements any skin tone and is also quite wearable. Whether you want to dye all your hair or just add a few highlights to enrich your natural color — rose gold is exceptionally versatile. Use the following inspiration and work with your colorist to achieve the dreamy and classy rose gold hair!

#1: Pretty in Pink Soft Waves

Want to add a bit of life to your seemingly dull blonde hair? The rose gold colour formula is the perfect option! Already having light hair or highlights gives you an advantage, as the color will grab on to the blonde a lot better and there will be no need to bleach your hair beforehand. A look like this is quite subtle and almost looks natural with soft waves at the ends.

#2: Rose Gold Hair Color on Brunettes

Yes, it might be easier for a blonde to dye her hair rose gold but that doesn’t mean that the rose gold doesn’t look amazing on brunettes as well! However, it is important to remember that if you want the rose gold hair dye to be vibrant you will need to bleach your dark hair to a lighter tone. That’s why an ombre hair might be the perfect option for brunettes that are looking to take the plunge. It’s an added bonus since you won’t have to bleach all your hair and you are still able to maintain some of your natural tone at the top.

It truly is the best of both worlds!

#4: Washed Out Rose Gold

Feeling a bit courageous and want to dye all of your hair? This washed-out tone is the perfect pastel pink for your hair; however, you must commit to it as this involves bleaching your whole head and really maintaining it with special color-safe shampoos or hair treatments.

#8: Princess Braids

Rose gold hair is already fun but why not have a bit more amusement by styling it. Try something like a braided updo and you’ll look just as fashionable as Amber Le Bon! This hairstyle really brings out those pink tones by having braids of different sizes wrapped around the bottom half of the head and one around the top. It really makes us feel like we’re look at royalty with this look!

#9: Rose Gold Balayage

If we’re being honest, we feel like you really can’t go wrong with a balayage style, as well as with rose gold blonde hair. Therefore, when you take your regular balayage and add an iridescent rose gold tone with hints of lilac it will create the most beautiful dimensional color. If you are a regular balayage customer consider adding a bit of color to the mix during your next hair salon appointment!

#10: Rose Gold Lion Mane

Don’t be afraid to go all out and really showcase your rose gold hair — be brave and beautiful! Just create big curls that add a bit of a crimp to them to get this look. This hairstyle will really accentuate the pink of your hair and make it look shiny and voluminous.

#11: Peachy Rose Gold

Don’t know how to make your rose gold hair look effortless and chic? Add peachy undertones and beach waves (and don’t worry about grown out roots). Pair this look with smokey eye makeup and great accessories and you’ll be ready for a fancy night out!

#12: Rose Ombre on Brown Hair

Here is another great option for rose gold hair color on brunettes! As we mentioned before if you have naturally brown hair adding rose gold to the ends in an ombre finish is a great way to test out the color. It will also reveal just how damaging the color may be. This style is more subtle and the rose gold really blends in with the brown making it more natural and healthy looking. It is perfect for shorter hair because the color is minimal and looks natural.

#13: Shades of Pink

Who said you had to settle just for rose gold? Add other pink tones to accent your hair and give it a life of its own. This dazzling effect will add dimension to your hair, and it will give your beautiful locks amazing vitality that speaks for itself!

#14: Desert Rose

This rose gold hair color formula is much a warmer tone. It also does a better job than other rose gold tones at blending the red hues in with the pink. It’s quite subtle as well, which makes it easier to wear to work or formal events.

#15: Rose Gold Corkscrew Curls

Corkscrew curls are already fun and unique on their own, but if you add rose gold color you will have the most envious hair around. Just remember that the dye may dry out your hair so use the right products to not only keep the color vibrant but to also protect your hair.

#16: Pixie Rose

Make your traditional pixie cut trendy with some rose gold highlights to brighten up your face. Even though you are adding a non-traditional color into your hair this tone is quite natural, and it’s the perfect choice if you’re not looking for too drastic of a change!

Rose gold hair is not only easy to blend with golden blonde or red tones, but it can also look amazing on platinum blondes! An amazing look is leaving your roots darker and having light rose highlights peek throughout the platinum hair. This look can be both subtle and sophisticated, but it still has an edginess about it!

#20: Rose Gold Waterfall

Want more ways to showcase your subtle rose gold hair dye? Consider this beautiful half-up hairdo. It’s a sideways fishtail braid that creates a sort of waterfall effect but it truly showcases the versatility of a rose gold color combination.
