As the year is coming to an end, it's easy to see that rose gold was one of the year's biggest trends. From rose gold watches, to rose gold phones and of course, the highly-sought-after hair color, the shade has undoubtedly become a norm across the spectrum. 

Though we're seeing the color everywhere, there are a few variations that stray off track from the usual tones. A refreshing change from the more common pastel and metallic hues, colorist Kim Pham (@kimwasabi) created a darker rose gold that's ideal for fall. Here's how: 

  • Apply Guy Tang #mydentity Xpress Toner in Blush with Pink Glow on pre-lightened, damp hair. 
  • Process for 20 minutes. 
  • Dry completely. 
  • Apply Guy Tang #mydentity 10 Rose Gold Permanent + 8GI + Pink Glow (10 volume 1:1). 
  • Process for 30 minutes.
