What do you get when you cross a gorgeous, on-trend shade with a professional and beautifying hair technique? Rose Gold Balayage! This fresh take on bold colours is the best way to liven up your hair and turn all the heads. Here, we bring you all the balayage idea inspiration you need to go for (rose) gold.

Just The Tips - Rose Gold Balayage

If you’re more interested in dipping your toes into the world of hair colour rather than diving head-first, a rose gold balayage (starting lower down your strands and finishing at the ends) has your name written all over it. Not convinced? This technique and pink queen shade serve as a pretty lil’ introduction to hair colour without being too bold. The style looks particularly boss on short hair, especially if you’re rocking a fringe, or on long flowing hair with curls - hello stunning dimension! By applying most of the colour to the tips, a rose gold balayage is just the right amount of subtle whilst boasting a playful air. It also means that if you need to pre-lighten your hair, it will only go on the ends of your hair keeping more of your natural locks.

Half Head Ombre Rose Gold Balayage

If you’re looking for a step-up from the more subtle pink tips suggested above but still don’t want to commit to being a full-on rosy Rosie, try out a half head rose gold balayage. This look is kept natural with roots still making an appearance, while the balayage technique blends the colour seamlessly onto the parts where the sun would naturally reflect the light - true hair art! 

This ombre-inspired rose gold balayage works on all hair colours - from platinum blonde to the darkest of browns, your stylist can create a bespoke colour for you. Rose gold tends to show up as an eye-catching rust colour on brunettes, whilst looking brighter and pinker on blondes. As a bonus, this look means less appointments getting touch-ups because it has the balayage blended effect. Want to add some oomph to this already smokin’ look? Pop in a silver shine to your rose gold to create a tailored tone of rose just for you. The opportunities are endless with this gorgeous hue.

Whole Head Rose Gold Balayage

Calling all trendsetting free spirits: a whole head of rose gold balayage is the perfect choice for you. According to experts, this style is complementary on most skin tones and hair types - BRB, just dialing up our stylist to book this look. In terms of styling, let your rose gold balayage inspire you to embrace your inner-romantic self with a dutch braid, or even loose beach waves, finessed with Redken Curvaceous Full Swirl Curly & Wavy Hair Cream Serum. This colour is too beautiful not to be fully embraced which is why we back the whole head of rosy gold locks one-hundred percent. Your trusted stylist will be the first to tell you that there’s always room for experimenting to get the precise shade you’re after. Peachy-rose is a hot hue people are lusting after, which is a slightly more fruity and feminine colour than its classic counterpart. 

Once you have the dreamy rose gold balayage you’ve always wanted, know that your colour journey doesn’t end at the salon; make sure you keep the dream alive longer with products specially designed for your colour needs. We love L'Oréal Professionnel Color 10 in 1 because it protects your colour and your strands from the dreaded F word - frizz!

La vie en rose, this trend is here to stay and we couldn’t be happier.
