This summer, Maxine colorist Leslie Shores is all about Rose Gold – the color is both warm and fresh, classic yet unexpected. It looks as gorgeous on that new chunky watch as it does with dewy, summer makeup—and now it’s ready to grace the locks of lucky Chicagoans.
“It’s been a hot trend in jewelry for a while,” says Leslie, “And it’s definitely becoming a trend in hair color as well.” After spotting rose gold all-over color and highlights on the runway last fall and this spring (and trying it out for herself), Leslie was hooked.
How to Get It
So, how does one achieve this honey-meets-strawberry tone? “Ask your colorist to spice up your color by alternating a golden blonde with a light strawberry red highlight,” says Leslie. And, of course, the best way to do that is with balayage. “The look will be way more natural and now.” “If you’re ready to go all the way, go with a rose gold base color and add in some blonde balayage to make your new color really shimmer.”
The Perfect Product
To keep rose gold red looking vibrant, Leslie LOVES one of Kérastase’s newest products—the Huile Céleste Shimmering Protective Mist, part of Kérastase’s summer-ready Soleil line. The Huile Céleste is a lightweight oil mist that protects the hair with UVA and UVB filters. Hydrating macadamia oil keeps hair from drying out, but it’s super-light—so locks won’t go limp. The best feature of all, though, are amazing little golden micro-particles that reflect the light. “The golden flecks will make your hair look incredibly shiny—and enhance your new Rose Gold highlights perfectly.”
