Rose gold hair is one of the trendiest colors right now. It’s absolutely gorgeous and completely eye-popping. And if you aren’t quite feeling the super pastel colors, fantasy colors, or unicorn and mermaid colors, or you are just over those, rose gold might be the color for you.
Ready for Rose Gold?
In case you have missed the trend, or have not seen a hue you like, here are five images of rose gold hair that we are totally loving:
This salon-fresh color is highly pigmented and really beautiful. The brighter shade looks awesome with the short cut and loose waves.
Rose gold doesn’t have to be as bright—peep this subtler, but no less glam, shade on longer hair.
This pastel rose gold still turns heads and looks so pretty. It’s guaranteed to get attention, despite being on the lighter side.

This lighter version is very on-trend, especially with the gold highlights. It looks great on longer hair so you can really see the full effect.

Here are some lovely rose gold highlights on darker hair that show you do not have to be blonde or lighten all of your hair to get this look.
How To Get Rose Gold hair
You can go to the salon but you can also find rose gold shades for home hair color as well. If your hair is dark, you will need to lighten it and that may take a few sessions. L’Oreal offers a fantastic guide on how to bleach your hair at home if you are going the DIY route. But if you are blonde or have lightened hair, you should be good to go. Think about whether you want permanent, semi-permanent, or temporary hair color before heading to the salon or buying an at-home color.
Not quite ready for home hair color that requires mixing and long wait times? Try the Overtone Original Rose Gold Complete System. This kit contains a Deep Treatment, a Daily Conditioner, and a travel size conditioner. Deep Treatment is deeply pigmented conditioning treatment in rose gold that is very easy to use. You can use it on brown or blonde hair, whether it is natural or dyed. To use, just rub into your hair and let it set for 15 minutes, then rinse and style. If you already have rose gold hair, you can use Deep Treatment for just five minutes to revive the color. The Daily Conditioner is a hydrating conditioner that protects and revives color by adding pigment. This kit quickly and easily lets you achieve rose gold hair and protects the color.
Remember to give colored hair extra love, with deep conditioning treatments or hair masks. Try the One ‘n Only Argan Oil Restorative Mask or the Oribe Masque for Beautiful Color, both of which will leave your tresses soft and shiny.
