Not only has rose gold been all the rage in accessories for the last year or so, but now rose gold is everywhere when it comes to beauty. A bit of rose is always a perfect pick to pretty up (and even anti-age) your look. And what could be more perfect with a tan than a little bit of gold?
Though adding a bit of rosiness to your locks might not be the first thing on your list, it’s the latest way to freshen up your do.
Leslie Shores colorist at Maxine Salon revealed that rose gold is the color of the moment for Chi-Town ladies. And I have to say that even a few friends on mine are jumping on board this colors with fabulous results. Shores is prepped and ready to work her magic on heads from coast to coast. “It’s been a hot trend in jewelry for awhile, and it’s definitely becoming a trend in hair color as well.” So how do you get this look? “Ask your colorist to spice up your color by alternating a golden blonde with a light strawberry-red highlight.” Balayage will achieve this, for sure. “The color will be way more natural and now.” If you’re up for a root-to-tip change, “Go with a rose gold base color and add in some blonde balayage to make the color really shimmer.”
Just remember that reds fade fast… so after care is super important. Leslie recommends Huile Celeste by Kerastase, to protect your new ‘do from UVA and UVB rays you’ll catch all season. We’re thrilled about these new hue heights to achieve this summer.

And to spice up your look even more try a rose/ champagne shadow duo like Alhambra from Nars. These shades are universally flattering and work well with a myriad of lip and cheek colors from bronze, to mauves and peaches.
Or try the ever coveted Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick which contains five gorgeous bronze and rosy gold shades to use on the cheeks, eyes or swipe a bit all over for a luminous glow.
Just be sure not to go overboard on the all over shimmer. Choose one or two places on the face to use shimmer ie: cheeks and lips, or lips and eyes but definitely not any more than that unless you want people to confuse you with some tween makeup counter experiment gone wrong.
