We want to help you bridge the gap between you wanting to Copper and you becoming a Copper.
Coppers sit high on our list, well, high on many lists if I’m honest — the major Colour trend of this year, swoon Colour, bestseller Colour, among others — and, apparently, many of you reading this love the Shade but struggle to use it. And the reasonings are diverse: prettified of overdoing it and becoming a full fledged carrot top, scared it looks better in your head than on your head, worried that it will be too intense, etc etc. So how do we bridge the gap between you wanting to Copper and you becoming a Copper? By asking yourself the single most important Copper question of your life — how vibrant do you want your Hair Colour? To help you answer this, I like to divide Coppers into two groups: Coppers Served Straight Up - pure, uninterrupted Copper Shades. Copper Cocktails - Copper Shades that have been subdued by adding in another Colour, so you still get the Copper effect but it's less intense. And once you’ve decided if it’s an intense or subtle Copper Shade you are interested in, keep reading to help pinpoint the exact look you are going for. Copper Served Straight Up.

How to Colour those really stubborn Greys.
Grey’s are a blessing of sorts, lucky enough to reach the age to get them, but don’t want to be reminded that you're ageing. Can relate — grateful and hateful all in the same breathe. So as with everything else that comes with ageing, subtle adjustments to your routine must be made to Greying Hair for better coverage. For example, once you’ve hit 50% Grey Hair's ignore the urge to pick up your regular Developer and switch to a 20 Vol. Even if you are Colouring with a High Lift Blonde, a 20 Vol is formulated for optimum Grey coverage and once you start Colouring with it you’ll notice the difference in coverage immediately. Or when your beloved Brunette is becoming too stark (imagine a clean line of greying regrowth contrasted against Dark ends) creating an ageing, heavy shadowing over your face that magnifies any wrinkles so they become so apparent in a fake news kind of way (meaning that they aren’t as they seem, it’s the wrong Hair Colour making them into big deal). If this rings true, it’s time to forfeit the Dark and head to the Light, starting by cleaning out all the old Dark Hair Colour out of your ends with a few Colour Remover applications that will wash out your old Colour without damaging your Hair. Following the clean out, find yourself a new Hair Colour a few shades Lighter and go with it. Reminder: to do this refresh, cleaning out the old Darker Colour is essential as you can’t Lighten Hair that is already Coloured Dark. On the flip side — foils, Highlights and over processed Light Blondes can make your Hair look old and dry, so giving up these Colour styles will be the best choice for your Hairs future. Henceforth bringing depth back into your Hair is the priority because it will soften your Colour, giving you a smoother Hair Colour essentially by painting a new Colour at your Regrowth and tapering it down the Hair to create a flush Hair Colour. The same goes for Light Blondes who are struggling to get their Hair Colour to grab to their stubborn Greys, you’re in need of depth. Adding depth to your Blonde, hypothetically swapping to a darker Shade like 8 Light Blonde, to enhance your Colour and cover those Greys. And when your Colour is washing you out, a Warmer Golden Shade will add pigment back into your Hair and filling it right up with flavour and shininess. Golden Shades yellow and orange pigments are the saviour for any dull or stubborn Grey Hair who are in need of being transformed into glowing ones. But between you and I, my favourite Hair Colour for Grey’s is the Boss Blonde. Legend says the Boss Blonde was named after the leader of our tribe wanted her Blonde to “have Warm, bouncy hues like a glass of bubbly with a pearly Blonde finish” and (come in closer) I can confirm the legend is true. The Boss Blonde has the perfect balance of Natural and Warm pigments, covers even the most stubborn Grey/White Hairs and it’s as bouncy as the Colour description suggests.
*The* Colours of the season!
Oh she’s here in all her cool, merciless Winter beauty and as I’m writing this, looking out my window at a greyed, wet and windy Sydney sky - I can’t help but imagine the Winter Hair Colour Shades I’m about to write about, against a crisp, Winter morning when everything is in HD (aka the world appears crystal clear), paired with a big chunky knit. Alas, I’m inspired and so, I have the perfect answer to “what Hair Colour should I be?”. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on Apr 3, 2019 at 3:59pm PDT The Scandi Blonde You’ve read about the Scandi Blonde and its crisp, icy hues that move elegantly through their Platinum Blonde home that one would typically expect fit the brief of a Summer Shade. But, truthfully, no more season is the Scandi Blonde suited to than Winter. On a practical point, Winter is a low maintenance time of year for Blondes with less sun and swim, perfect for the Scandi Blonde. But it’s those glassy hues coordinated with a Winter wardrobe that are unbeatable. Try these Shades: Extra Light Ash Blonde, Extra Light Beige Blonde or Extra Light Silver Blonde.

I’m not sure if I get drinking it, imagining those deep, pungent Plum Tones flowing through Hair is another story. I love big, bold Colours and if you do too might I suggest a mulled wine hue. Plum Shades are in a league of their own, offering you more than a standard Red or Brunette, who’s rich, billowing pigments ricochet light like a mirror. And you know what that means? Super shiny Hair. Try these Shades: Pure Plum or Deep Chocolate Plum.

I love the way it glistens when it hits the sun, how it energises Hair that then spills into the complexion or how it’s the closest thing we in the Hair Colouring world get to a renovation. So come Winter, Warmth is the choice for people like me who are seeking to keep the sun kissed dream alive. The beauty here is the variety is enormous — Chestnuts, Coppers, Champagne Blondes — so although the weather can be duller you can still enjoy a full, Golden based Shade. Try these Shades: Golden Blonde or Intense Copper Blonde View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dua Lipa (@dualipa) on May 20, 2019 at 8:51am PDT Raven Haired It wouldn’t be a Winter forecast without talking about the deepest, Darkest Shades —one that is so Dark it’s like midnight and it shines like the stars on the clearest, Winters night. My favourite is big Brunette to Black Shades with Dark Winter brows or a sleek high pony or a middle part with curls that catch the Light at the top of every shiny curve. Mmm, there’s nothing like it. Try these Shades: Dark Brown or Ebony Brown View this post on Instagram A post shared by Olivia Palermo (@oliviapalermo) on May 22, 2019 at 10:56am PDT Middle Blonde Being stuck in the middle has never looked so good with Medium Blondes, as they’re known, the in between Dark and Light Blonde Shades that are best described as “just right”. The Medium Blondes offer you the chance to keep your Hair Colour low key chill, but still with a bit of spunk. Which for someone like me, means I don’t have to do too much to my Hair to have it looking goood. Try these Shades: Medium Blonde or Ash Blonde.
