Copper and pumpkin spice hair colours are so popular this season that they’ve sparked a +284% increase in Google searches for colour depositing conditioners.
Someone who's been wearing the shade well before it became a trend is natural redhead Stacey Dooley. The presenter has always stuck to a bracket of red and copper hair, but her particular new shade is perhaps her best – and most vibrant – yet.
We wonder if she’s been to the salon for a professional gloss treatment or whether she’s touched up her hair at home using her signature Golden Auburn dye,£6.49 herefrom Clairol (for whom she is an ambassador). Either way, her hair looked fresh and perfectly toned on a recent outing to record Michael McIntyre's The Big Show.
If Stacey is inspiring you to try out a pumpkin spice or copper hue for yourself, we have just the tips from Sian Quinn, Headmasters colour ambassador, to help you get the perfect shade to suit your skin tone.
“Because copper has such a variety of tones, like auburn, burnt orange and strawberry blonde, it means the tint can be worn by all skin tones,” Sian explains. “Have your stylist give you a colour consultation to help select the right tone. If you’re new to colour, you could try a balayage contour where your stylist selects ribbons of hair around the face to colour and enhance. It’s an ideal way of introducing a new tone.”
If you’re trying the look out for yourself at home using a colour depositing mask or a semi-permanent tint, the good news is that copper washes out of hair quickly. The bad news is if you fall in love with the colour, it’ll go down the drain of your shower in just as few hair washes.
To avoid fade, Sian recommends keeping your hair in good condition. “You want to make sure your hair is in the best condition, so a treatment like Olaplex can be used to protect your hair bonds. If you’re going anywhere near the sun, you also want to make sure you’re using a hair-specific UV spray,” she adds.
If you go to the salon to have the initial colour done – which, as Sian explains, will help- you get the most complementary shade for your skin tone – then you can always keep up the colour at home with a colour depositing mask.
