A little bit of the feeling creeps that the long lockdown has made you keen to experiment. This may be due to the new level of boredom, but maybe it is also this impulsive thought that the next visit to the hairdresser must be worthwhile after such a long time. Like the “break-up hair” phenomenon, we are now putting an end to our old selves, with whom we spend so much time at home - and getting new hair color.
The new hair hype can be explained in this or a similar way: Even if Gigi Hadid gave the trend hairstyle a prominent appearance with her runway comeback at Versace - copper hair has been in high demand among hairdressers for some time. No wonder, because if there is one thing that makes you look fresh, it is the orange-tinged copper tone!
The longer the days and warmer the air, the more noticeable the beauty looks become. So the copper hair from Gigi Hadid is a trend that feels bold and at the same time quite natural. The nuances of the hair color can range from a deep red to copper to tangerine. Regardless of whether you opt for a strong tone or are geared towards natural redhead: the hairstyle definitely demands attention - and should be discussed with the trusted hair professional for the right effect.
Copper hair should definitely be left to the professional because it is essential to find the right shade of red for your type. The hair texture and the basic hair color also determine whether the copper hair actually becomes copper-colored (i.e. looks more like a light orange) or takes on a rich, fiery red tone. Frizzy and curly hair is easier to bleach than straight hair. Accordingly, the color result of the trend hairstyle is slightly different. If you have ash blonde hair like Gigi Hadid, it is easier to get copper hair than brunettes. For comparison: Gigi's sister Bella Hadid also experimented with the trend hairstyle, once at home, once on the Givenchy runway. For the autumn/winter collection 2021/22, the result was much more subtle, the DIY variant ended in shock strands in bright orange.
Finally, of course, the right care is also essential for the effect of the hairstyle: Copper Hair should definitely be cared for with shampoo and Co., which retain the color and make the hair shine despite the stress of dying. Especially those who had to bleach their hair heavily in advance should rely on more intensive care afterward. You should also pay attention to how the copper hair behaves in connection with salt and chlorinated water (because next summer is sure to come). And: a UV spray for the hair protects against color changes and keeps the trendy hairstyle fresh as long as possible. Gigi Hadid was also spotted with her copper hair a week after the Versace show in New York - so the trend is clearly here to stay.
