Now trending for summer 2016: Rose gold hair

Pink hair is nothing new — celebs and It-girls have been rocking the pastel hair trend season after season, year after year. But the newest hue that's taking the beauty industry by storm is a little deeper than your average pink, and even more wearable. The new cool girl hair trend is 'Rose Gold Hair' and it's gorgeous. Rather than being just one solid color, rose gold is made up of a mixture of reds, pinks, blondes and browns; in a variety of tones, to create a depth of color that mimics that of rose gold glinting in the sunlight. It's a really pretty way of going pastel, without being over the top.

Rose gold is all over social media this summer, as well as on red-carpets and at music festivals-- the shade is everywhere on those in the know right now. It’s also super flattering on nearly everyone. Though rose gold is generally more suited to people with dark eyes, and a yellow based skin tone, an experienced colorist can adjust the hues to suit your skin tone and eyes, making this a complimentary look for pretty much anyone.

Getting the look will take some time, but the results are so well worth it. To achieve this highly sought-after hair color trend, we recommend seeing a professional, so book an appointment with your stylist. He or she will need to pre-lighten if you aren’t already light blonde or grey, which can mean a multi-step coloring process.

If you have a warmer complexion then think about a rose copper hue. Not too light, not too dark and with the perfect pink copper reflections, this is the most skin flattering shade for you. If your skin tone is cooler, then imagine the perfect rose mahogany. This is a soft, pale pink that is so flattering and ultimately creates a youthful effect as it softens your complexion.

And as for with any color, maintenance is always needed – some of this is done in salon and some will be done at home. For longer lasting rose gold hues, your stylist should leave a slight touch of warmth in the lightened hair and finish with a glaze to get the perfect rosy glow. The glaze will need to be refreshed every three to four weeks. At home, make sure to use products from the Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Diamond Color line, designed specifically for color-treated hair. Infused with intense moisturizers, the products in the essence ULTIME Diamond Color line will leave your rose gold sleek, soft and bright.

The subtle effect of rose gold tresses is ultra-feminine and perfect for the summer season. If you’re thinking of jumping on board with this super-hot trend, stock up on all your favorites from the Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Diamond Color line before booking an appointment with your stylist. Then rock that rose gold like a rock star!
