This summer blonde has taken over as the hair colour of choice, quickly making its way across runways and red carpets. From platinum to strawberry, celebs like Taylor Swift and even Irina Shayk proved that just about anybody can go blonde if they're up for the maintenance! But while sun-bleached hues are one of our favourite trends, summertime is a great excuse for a fun, new dye job, meaning it's necessary to play around and switch up your look from time to time!
The latest in hair colour trends? The stars are all about heavy metal as of late. From slight tweaks to the classics and full-on, metal hues, we're loving these unique and daring looks. Get The Look is breaking down this new trend into five metallic shades you can use to amp up your strands as the temperatures heat up.
For Kylie Jenner, switching up your hair colour is no big deal – even if it means going from brunette to a vibrant shade of copper. The 18-year-old debuted penny-hued locks at Coachella this year, inspiring us to try the copper look out for ourselves. Remember: if you're going to try out this look, visit your salon or a colourist who knows their way around daring hues. To avoid extra maintenance, throw some dark root growth into the mix!
The sweetest of the heavy metal looks, rose gold is the best option for those who are already blonde and want to change up their look. This shade has a slight pink tint that gives your hair a soft, warm shade that's perfect for the summer.
Recently, some of our favourite celebs including Taylor Swift, experimented on the platinum blonde spectrum, one of the season's hottest hair trends that nobody can resist. The equal parts white and silver shade is reminiscent of the metallic element itself, but its also extremely high maintenance, so be prepared to keep it up!
If you're really feelin' the heavy metal trend, take a hint from Jourdan Dunn, Ciara, and Kesha, who all decided to kick grey up a few notches with a striking silver shade. The key to emulating the natural sheen of the metal is adding dimension and using the right toners. And considering this is one of the most difficult hues to create, skip the DIY approach and consult a colourist who really knows what they're doing.
Bronze – or ronze – the metallic version of a classic redhead that combines red with bronze to create an edgier appeal, has also been spotted on a slew of stars as of late, including Emma Roberts. The best part about this shade? It's extremely wearable – especially for natural brunettes. It's all about finding the right balance of tones (from golden red to deep bronze) to flatter your complexion.
