Stars such as Emma Roberts, Ella Fanning and now GIRLS star Jemima Kirke have been spotted rocking rose gold hair.
I’ve been loving rose gold hair for a while now. It’s kind of become the hair trend of the summer. The pinky-metallic hue has been extremely popular on Instagram as well as in the world of the A-listers.
But who I really wanted to look like when I went to get my own rose gold wash-in was Sienna Miller, circa 2013 at the British Fashion Awards. Her look was subtle, without being too pink or vibrant.
I went to get my own colour done at the Cheeky salon in Shoreditch, as part of the Josh Wood Metal heads colour service.
“Rose Gold Metal Heads is such a wearable colour, it doesn’t really need to be for an occasion. However it would look great with a tan for Ibiza! It lasts between 5-7 washes, so the less you wash your hair the more longevity you will get from the colour.” says, Melanie Jane Smith, Creative Master Colourist at Josh Wood Atelier.
My hairdresser, Jason Hogan, knew exactly what I wanted after a little consultation, and got to mixing the colour. He then applied the wash to shampooed locks and left it on for a few minutes.
Within 10 minutes I was back at my chair having my locks dried and, guess what? I was one step closer to looking a little more like Sienna.

The Josh Wood Metal heads service at Cheeky starts at £35. Scroll down to read more about rose gold hair and how to maintain it.

What is Rose Gold Hair?
Rose gold is a gorgeous coppery red tone with hints of gold and pinky rose making it a switch up from winter’s balayage but not summer’s bright bold pink.

We asked colour guru, Daniel Palmer Color Director at Taylor Taylor London for his top tips on going rose…
“You would think asking for a rose gold hair colour, would be straight forward, but it can get quite tricky finding the best hue to suit you so I suggest taking a picture, or even creating your own personal mood board from pinterest and instagram to direct your colourist,” says Daniel.
It’s a trend that suits everyone…
“Rose gold is generally more suited to people with dark eyes, and a yellow based skin tone. Saying that there are always exceptions to the rules. An experienced colourist will adjust the hues to suit your skin tone and eyes making this a complimentary look for pretty much everyone,” says Daniel.

“There are lots of different permanent and semi permanent options available for this trend. Personally, I like to achieve this look with semi permanent colours, as I find they give a more lived in softener feel,” says Daniel.
