Do you know what is the best thing about winter? Okay, the holidays and the gifts that go with them are great, but that's not what we meant. We had in mind that the alternation of the seasons makes you want to change your mind too! At the same time, the wintry scenery by the window isn't exactly inviting to cut your hair, is it? The solution is quite obvious: adopt a new color, of course! But how do you choose between the thousand and one aesthetic shades that exist? Well, considering it's cold, we have to go for the warm look in order to restore the balance, right? And since brassy hair is the ultimate trend this season, we need to try it out ASAP!
Copper hair is in the spotlight
Whoever follows the trend of fashion in terms of cuts, hairstyles and hair color has probably noticed that this is not the first time that copper hair has been all the rage among girls. Every few years, freckles make a comeback and good for us! What is also evident is that the nuances it manifests are becoming more numerous, interesting and sophisticated. Which will emerge at the top in 2021, it's up to you to find out below!
Who is copper in hair for?
Before listing the best shades, it should be clarified what is the profile of the girl who can make brassy hair work flawlessly. If you decide to do your research thoroughly, you will find that in the ideal case this would be a natural blonde with light eyes and rather pale skin, covered with ephelids. But in reality, things aren't that simple, and red hair isn't just for white people.
Auburn, mahogany, raw orange and copper rose have the ability to highlight different skin tones and that is why choosing the specific copper shade matters most when it comes to hair dyeing. And we haven't even tackled the question of the skin's undertones yet, which are just as important as the complexion itself, or even more… So it's not just a question of fashion!
For example, coppery blonde is perfect for fair girls with cool or neutral skin undertones. On the other hand, the flamboyant copper hair is a great complement to ladies with a warm complexion overall. Auburn is suitable for both fair and dark skin as its undertones are warm or at least neutral. In fact, the olive skin tone is the only one to rather avoid the reddish color because it can give it a creepy appearance. Examples like this go on and on but it's worth looking at some visual evidence …
Broux coloring or red that works for brunettes
Whether you call it mulled wine red, auburn coloring, or just “broux” (a hybrid of brown and red), this mahogany variation is the perfect choice for any girl with naturally brown hair. Even Katy Perry (pictured below) who has tried practically any hair color out there on the planet, proudly wore this mesmerizing shade for a good period of time!

Then natural blondes are even luckier because they can quietly take on any red shade imaginable and make it work flawlessly! The only rule, so to speak, is to match the visible highlights in their hair to the colored temperature of their skin tone. In other words, pink is for cool complexions, reds and oranges like golden skin, neutrals can take advantage of either the former, or the latter, or both, depending on the rest of their physical characteristics.

So use the straightener to polish your orange square just below the mandible, use the curling iron to boast some teasing waves, or just go for the right hair product to make each of your natural curls look perfectly defined!
