Ready to return to your life with a hair change? Copper hair is the post-pandemic trend making waves.
So many of us turned to bright, semi-permanent hair dye over lockdown – Boots reported that searches for ‘pink hair dye’ shot up by over 900%. There was also a phase of what we called Pumpkin Spice Hair, and the latest hair trend is a richer, more luxe take on that flaming cinnamon orange. A shining, bright auburn called copper hair, has reached a tipping point.
Blame Miranda Hobbes for the copper craze taking over your TV favourites. Post-Euphoria High, Alexa Demie has chopped her hair into a pixie crop, but three other cast members – Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney and Barbie Ferreira – have switched up their hair to copper. Sophie Turner has also returned to her Sansa Stark roots, and the worlds of sports and music has been caught up too – Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams, SZA, Doja Cat, Ciara, Kelis and Halle Bailey all have swapped to a coppery gleam, and Kendall Jenner is the latest to join in, sporting a new copper look on the Prada catwalk at Milan Fashion Week.
In summary, copper is the colour of returning to life, suitable on every texture and length and sunny and warming on every complexion. Scroll down for the best copper hair looks to screenshot for the hairdresser.
