Natural redheads make up only 1-2% of the entire population, but recently, there has been an uptick in redheads, thanks to hair dyes. Copper became the most trendy red hair color, with celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Phoebe Dynevor trying it out for themselves, and this is how you can get the copper hair color at home.
Usually, you should be careful not to pick a hair color that clashes with your skin tone, but the beauty of copper is that it looks good on anyone, and it’s easy to achieve. Copper has many hues, so if you have lighter skin tone, opt for “a more strawberry or copper take,” but if you have a deeper skin tone, try “a warm terra cotta or rich sienna hue,” says celebrity hair colorist Jeremy Tardo.
While you could go to a salon, you can also do it at home and save money by using a box dye like Clairol Natural Instincts 6R Spiced Tea Light Auburn or the Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Créme in Ginger Snaps. If you want a more intense shade of copper, try L’Oreal Paris Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Intense Copper.
