Gone are the days when getting your hair dyed rose gold was a cause for concern. Now, it’s practically your entry ticket into the cool-girl gang – and we have Apple to thank. While the origins of this metallic hue can be traced back to 19th century Russia, where jewelers acquired the specific shade by mixing gold with copper, it was only after the tech giant unveiled the ‘iPhone 6s’ back in 2015 that this girly color gained mainstream popularity.
Skip five years ahead and rose gold refuses to be forgotten. It has, in fact, made a huge comeback in the hair world, courtesy of the global lockdowns. The best part? You can customize the rose gold hair trend to your liking. A global dye like Kylie Jenner or Behati Prinsloo is always an option if you’re feeling gutsy, or you can opt for highlights like January Jones, or go for Kaia Gerber‘s subtle look by simply dipping your ends in the blush pink hue. Our advice? If you want to make a statement, consider mixing this trend with the viral Rogue blonde hair trend, where instead of bleaching the front portion of your locks, you dye them rose gold.
