Introducing rose brown hair; the newest brunette colour trend to light up social media. It’s deep and has a certain richness to the palette, but is still super girly and perfect all year round. First noted by Allure, rose brown comes from an Australian hairstylist, Thi Thao Tu, who’s Instagram you can find here. She told Allure that the colour is created using a combination of bleach, brown and red dye and an Olaplex treatment to ensure the health and integrity of the client’s hair.

She created this stunning colour, which is root to ends, and credits the incredible shine to the use of the Olaplex treatment. Now suggested for many clients who are using bleach on the hair, the formulated, 3-step hair treatment repairs and protects and has been featured in Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Elle, to name but a few, leading magazines.

Since the use of bleach is required to lift the brunette strands to this pretty shade, the quality and condition of hair is key to ensuring the best possible results for those who fancy a switch to this springs palette.

This gorgeous interpretation of the trend is the work of the Michael Richard hair salon in Ipswich. It balances lighter and darker tones of brunette, juxtaposed against rose hues to create this jaw-dropping multi-dimensional effect with bags of shine – and those tousled waves finish the look off beautifully.

It’s fair to say that balayage has been one of the most popular hair colouring techniques of the past few years, so it’s quite something to see this favourite styling technique of the hair world combined with the sultry tones of the rose brown hair trend. Graduating from a deep brunette at the roots and seamlessly blending into a blush hue, this is definitely one of our favourite new interpretations of the trend.
