It's safe to say rose gold was last year's ultimate trend. 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 and it doesn't seem to be fading. 

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 this time of year. 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.
