This will be because many of the Hair European women tend to red, but for a long time we asked our hairdressers to hide the natural ones warm and copper reflections. “Even today, we are very often asked to mask the red undertone of the hair, which is very common for European skin tones, so what we see in Hollywood is a ‘positive’ trend, which pushes us to embrace our origin“, he tells us Marco Rizzihairstylist from the Milanese salon Namu Hair and Local Hair Expert for Hair Rituel by Sisley, engaging the trend of copper hair auburn. Indeed, for a year and more and more in recent months, it seems that Hollywood has been hit by a sudden urge for gold-orange highlights: the stars of Euphoria Zendaya, Barbie Ferreira and Sydney Sweeneybut also celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Sophie Turner, Gigi Hadid and Zosia Mamet.
“2022 is the year of warm reflections and coppery tones, rich in shades of orange and gold“, star hair colorist Matt Rez told WWD, explaining how this hair color is trending in Hollywood but also on TikTok. “More and more people are daring and the trend is getting stronger: I think that in 2022 we will see different interpretations of these shades, which have a great impact because they are immediately noticed”. Sincered honey with honey and caramel glints, more common in dark-haired people, hello strawberry blonde, the blond that turns pink-orange, on European heads it is generally not difficult to create warm, coppery reflections: “Red and its shades are among the easiest colors to achieve, precisely because the hair European countries are already tending towards these tones”, explains Marco Rizzi.

From blonde to copper
Blondes who choose to “warm up” their hair color more often opt for last year’s trending shade of strawberry blonde, strawberry blonde in its more auburn version, like Sydney Sweeney’s. How to do? “As well on natural blonde hair as on very light hair, as on bleached blonde hair, the first thing to do is to pigment it without using oxygen but by applying pure pigment which stick to the hair replacing it and make it possible not to work on a white canvas, otherwise the first brushstrokes of red would be pink and transparencies would remain”, explains the hairdresser.

From brown to copper
The best home base dyeing your hair a copper hue is the natural brown: “Dying naturally brown hair red is theoretically the easiest thing you could even do yourself at home,” says Rizzi. “Just use a real oxidation complexionwhich manages to lighten up to two tones, just enough to achieve copper shades”. If, on the other hand, the hair is dark but already colored with a dye, it is better to go to the salon: “On colored tints and dark hair, I don’t recommend using dye -it yourself because you have to go back to yellow first and then use toners to adjust the red tones.”
The maintenance of the copper hair
If they are easy to do, on the contrary copper shades are difficult to maintain, it is also for this reason that Hollywood stars often choose to show them only for a few months (Kendall Jenner has already gone back to brown, just like Gigi Hadid and Sydney Sweeney have already gone back to blond). “Being a true color, after a while the hair tends to lose melanin, lighten and deteriorateeven with the contribution of external agents such as the wind and, especially in this season, the sun”, warns the hairdresser of Namu Hair. “A coloring of this type well done is right that it does not last more than a months,” he explains Rizzi.
To slow deterioration, salon services that help keep them hydrated and therefore shinier and richer in highlights are polishing treatments such as Shinefinity color glaze by Wella, the latest evolution of the classic gloss: it is a next-generation semi-permanent color treatment, created to deliver color true to its tone, with a cutting-edge clean formula free of ammonia, silicones or alcohol. Even the hair routine at home can make a big difference: “To keep the color looking better for longer, it’s important to use hair sun creams, protective oils and fluidsBelow is a mini home hair color maintenance routine.
