I did it again! I colored my hair and finally a color I wanted– not that I didn’t want my last color. My last color was a safe color– some lighter colors on my hair to eventually warm it up to what I really wanted. I don’t know about you, but I’m obsessed with PINTEREST, I’m slightly obsessed with it from cooking recipes, styling ideas or hair color, I’m on it 24/7. I may possible have an addiction and I didn’t know it! Well I have a whole board of hair dye ideas I’d love to do ONE DAY, but this one color came across and it was a rose gold color. I instantly loved it and sent the picture to my hair stylist/colorist Nicole and she loved it as much as I did and said I should do it! She’s very convincing– I took the plunge and did it! Also, Nicole recommends getting a glaze every 6 weeks since it’s a fashion tone color (pinks, blue, purples– out there colors)– they usually tend to fade quicker than regular tones.
If you like the look here are the steps she took:
The first step in achieving rose gold hair is pre-lightning the hair.
1- Goldwells oxy and 30 volume to balayage.
I lifted Betsy’s hair to a level 9 ( light blonde) and then used Goldwells express toning to get any unwanted tones in the hair to be even before I apply the elmuen glaze. The express toner will also close the cuticle of the hair so that the hair is moisturized and shiny.
2- Next step is to dry the hair and prepare for the aluminum glaze. I mix a combination of colors to achieve the rose gold color; golds, blondes, pinks and coppers to give the hair dimension. I let the glaze sit on for 30 minutes then wash and condition and lock for five minutes to give the hair some stability so the glaze will not rinse out.
