Rose gold has seemingly taken over every aspect of Millennial existence: from technology to Snapchat filters, clothing, and accessories, the color is everywhere. A newer way to “rosé all day” has emerged over the past year: rose blonde hair.
For those looking for a versatile change-up from the usual high and lowlights, consider this edgy take on a classic. Celebrities such as Emma Roberts, Elle Fanning, and Hilary Duff have all plunged into the rose gold pool. While they dove right into an all-over tone, clients can also dip in one toe at a time by adding rose blonde highlights throughout their existing colors.
Zano Salons has the most highly trained hair colorists in the industry, and they never shy away from opportunities to try different looks. This rose blonde shade is one of them. We’ve done it before, and we’re eager to do it again!
Before you swan dive into the rose blonde color pool, we’ve answered some questions about one of the hottest trends of 2018. Think pink.
Will it look good on me?
The main appeal of rose blonde is its versatility: it complements any skin tone, and can be modified to an exact hue that works for you. So, although it will be a change, it won’t be SO shocking that you will no longer recognize yourself. It will add character in a wearable, classy way.
How Do I Get Rose Blonde Hair?
There are always two choices: DIY or the salon. If you’ve decided on coloring your entire head with rose blonde, having a professional colorist take the reigns is by far the best option. The look will require more maintenance as time goes on, and it will be most beneficial to stick with someone who knows where you started and where you should end up on the color spectrum. And, with a significant change like this, wouldn’t you like it done right instead of worrying about the outcome?
For highlights, the same rule applies. You may be able to get away with keeping it up yourself, but it would still do a great service to gauge your colorist’s opinion on which products are preferred over others. As good as a lot of home color products are, one mishap can affect your look, particularly if it’s the first time and you have to bleach your hair. No one wants to go through the hassle of going back to the salon and spending more money fixing a mistake than preventing it from the beginning!
How Should I Prep For Rose Blonde Hair?
For blondes, it’s rather simple. Just visit your colorist and add rose gold highlights to get the look. For the brunette and black hair colors, it’s a bit more challenging. Accept that achieving this look is not impossible, but it will take some time. Hair needs to be bleached before applying rose blonde, regardless of the starting color. The darker the shade, the longer (and more expensive) it will take to build the shade. If you’re up for the color, but not so much the upkeep or expense, you can always try dyeing your ends or light layers first to see how much you like it before committing to the full-on hair color.
How Do I Take Care of Rose Blonde Hair?
Once you do have the look, it will require regular maintenance and retouching. Customers will notice the first signs of fading after 5-7 washes. To prolong fading, adjust your hair care routine. Using color-treated shampoos, conditioners, and other products doesn’t stop fading entirely but can delay it as much as possible. Ask your colorist what products he or she recommends.
