THE HOTTEST HAIR COLOUR TREND THIS A/W - METALLIC COPPER
Comments from Suzie McGill, Artistic Director at Rainbow Room International and Schwarzkopf UK Ambassador. One hair colour trend that comes back on trend year after year in autumn/winter is copper coloured hair but for 2021 copper hair becomes more contemporary and we see metallic copper being one of the most highly requested hair colour looks of the season.
The key to this copper hue is that it has an extreme, mirror like shine, which adds to the intensity of the colour, whilst also giving it a luxurious and incredibly healthy appearance.
When it comes to achieving this colour in the salon, toning plays a huge role in helping create an intense copper shade and adding that reflective shine.
The beauty of copper hair colour is that it suits all skin tones and the copper hue can be adjusted for the client, to not only suit their skin tone but also to suit their lifestyle and personality too. The shade can be as bold or as subtle as the client likes. For those with blonde – light brown hair this colour will be easier to achieve, however, those with darker hair may need to have their hair pre-lightened to achieve this look.
With any hair colour, but particularly shades like these that are more vibrant and luminous and that look best with optimum shine, hair care is key. You should recommend that your clients use a colour saving shampoo and conditioner every hair wash day and rotate their conditioner with a hair mask a couple of times a week to keep their colour sealed in and looking healthy and shiny. A serum or oil should also be recommended to clients to use on their hair damp or dry to keep it free from frizz, split ends and damage whilst adding further shine.
To promote this hair colour, styling works incredibly well. A simple soft wave or sleek style can really show off this gorgeous shade and allow it to look its best. Always encourage your clients to use a heat protection spray prior to styling their hair at home and once they have finished styling, to finish with a shine spray for even more lustrous looking locks!
