The rose gold hair color trend is full of nuance in every shade and shimmer for the looks that range from ombre to purely rose gold, root to tip. The color is soft, but bold and impossible to miss. The cleverer the stylist is, the cooler the color looks on the hair.
The rose gold hair color is a metallic pinky shade with a hint of coppery red and a warm glowing touch of blonde that makes it appear more natural than a pink hair tone. Making it your own is easy to do and amazing to wear. The easiest way to achieve rose gold hair is with blonde hair, but for the most talented stylists, the blonde is not a requirement.

47. Subtle Rose Gold Hair Color
Rose gold can be deep and rich or, in this case, light and subtle. The softness of the color is noticeable, though barely there. The distinction is there but not in an over the top way, blending smoothly from the dark roots to the tint at the ends.
48. Metallic Sheen Rose Gold Hair
The shine of the rose gold lengths looks especially bright against her dark roots. Hints of peach and apricot shades blend well with the signature pinkish tones to create rose gold. The pastels brighten up the overall look against the shimmering gold color hair color.
