Today I am going to take your through the steps on how to get rose gold hair. It has taken me a while to decide to go this colour, I have been having a mid hair crisis for a while now. I knew I wanted a change but I couldn’t decide on what that change was. I was describing a kind of pinky taupe colour to people that asked what was going on with my hair, but it wasn’t until I was browsing Pinterest the other day, that I saw the exact pinky taupe colour I wanted being described as rose gold.
As soon as I saw the varying shades of rose gold hair, I knew that was the colour I wanted to go for summer. It also then suddenly became clear how I was going to achieve that, and in the video below I take you through what you’ll need. I had faded my hair our for as long as I could. I used Head & Shoulders for a few washes since I heard that helps strip the colour out quicker.
I started by using the Bleach London Awkward Peach mix with Pastel Pink Directions and a drop of Flamingo Pink Directions which was a fantastic mix and just what I was after. But half way through application I ran out and had to improvise. With no more Awkward Peach to hand, I reverted back to my stash of Directions and mixed a tonne of conditioner along with a tiny drop of Flame Directions and a hint of the Flamingo Pink. I was able to mix almost an exact replica of the Awkward Peach but for more than half the price.
Going forward to keep my colour topped up, I will be sticking with the later mixture rather than buying the Bleach London colours again. Although I love the Bleach London branding and colour range, and the fact you can buy easily in Boots, realistically it’s not the best product I have ever bought. The bottle shaped bottle (!?) makes it really tough to get all the mixture out. I would have had to buy three or for bottles for full coverage if I hadn’t mixed it up for my hair. It’s much more economical to mix your own from Flame Directions with some pink, but if you’re not experienced in colour mixing then perhaps stick to the bottle of Bleach London to be on the safe side.
