For decades copper hair tones have been stopping traffic, with celebrities around the globe enjoying a wide range of copper tones. From the more modest subtle hues (Nicole Kidman 2000–2014) and Deep Earthy tones (Marcia Cross, Emma Stone) to more daring, brighter shades (Nicole Kidman Pre 2000, Cynthia Nixon and Lucille Ball).
By using various foiling techniques our hairdressers at Epic Hair Designs are specially trained in creating feature foils and flashes, or blending sun catching glimmers throughout the hair. Whatever your mood, they will help you choose just the right combo to brighten your skin and liven up those tresses.
Copper is such a rich stunning all over/block colour. Add a bit of interest to brown hair by adding a slight hint of the copper, or stray away from the ash blondes to a lovely warmer strawberry blonde for winter. For the more daring, try a striking bright copper. Here are a few shades and styles to choose from to suit your hair tone and style and skin tone to be a queen of copper!
Natural looking soft copper combined with gentle golden highlights exudes the elegance of a princess. – or at least the wife of a Baron! This shade suits best soft porcelain skin with pink undertones. Looks great down in gentle waves or pulled up in an elegant updo.
- Velvety Auburn – Ombre
If your hair is straight or gently wavy, and you are daring to go for copper this season, we might suggest ombre or velvety auburn. Start with a vivid dark auburn or ginger at the roots and then melt into tender strawberry blonde. A silky finish will bring out the radiance of this stunning copper shade. A perfect match if your skin is fair with a warm undertone.
- Soft Ginger
Soft ginger, which is a less vibrant red, is another tone good for those with a warm or yellow skin undertone like Emma Stone. The muted red will have your skin glowing, bringing out the peaches-and-cream tone in yours skin. Soft ginger tone can be toned subtly red at the ends – perfect for long, messy curls.
- Old Tangerine
Mmmm Tangerine! Bold & Spicy! It takes a special girl to go for this. When you adopt this bold pop of colour, with its saturation and contrast, it’s a truly worthy choice. Bright, smouldering lipstick is a great match.
Polished, Classy Copper Waves
If you are after a solution that sits well in the boardroom or a black tie event, a solid, classic intense colour can be a bit more conservative yet still speak ‘power woman’ and class! Go for not too light and not too dark.
- Copper Highlights
Copper highlights on natural brunettes with deep olive skin, like Eva Longoria, are so flattering. Just a glimmer of red looks subtle and oh so pretty! Go for golden chestnut with copper highlights throughout.
There are so, so many shades and styles to play with when it comes to courageous copper – more than what we’ve shared here! In an Epic consult, one of our Epic stylists will sit down with you (over your complementary glass of wine or latte) and go through our gallery to choose a plan of action!
