Copper Brown Hair

Beautiful and rich copper brown hair is just as delectable as it sounds. Approach finding the right shade of red hair like you would choosing a new lipstick: for copper brown, medium (or neutral) skin tones work best. If you cannot resist going for a real head-turning look, this red hair colour is for you. Copper brown hair is “best styled with movement in it”, advises Paul. He recommends L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ARTSpiral Curls Mousse to get Hollywood-worthy waves. This product will bring out the best copper hair tones. 

Copper Hair With Highlights

We’re swooning big time over this beautiful red hair look. Copper hair with highlights is often suited best to ladies who are “fair-skinned with light blue eyes”, says Paul. That doesn’t mean you can’t achieve this look if you don’t meet that criteria. Far from it, we love going against convention and it is more about you as an individual.

Copper Hair With Blonde

If you’re looking for a more neutral red hair shade, think about copper blonde hair. This shade is an instant highlighter because you can strategically place streaks of blonde to accentuate your best features. Just keep in mind,

“Colour molecules in red are quite small, so they can escape easier” The online destination for everything hair, powered by L'Oréal

To prevent these more copper hair molecules from escaping from your hair in any shade variation, opt for a dry shampoo to help skip washing your hair. Pro-loved L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Morning After Dust dry shampoo cleanses, refreshes and absorbs oils in the hair... so abstaining from a shampoo has never been more simple!

Paint the town (and your hair) red and live life as a scarlet siren - just be sure to go to a pro to get the look! Use our salon locator to book an appointment with a stylist near you.
