At the beginning of quarantine, pastel pink reigned supreme as the breakout hair colour trend of choice. For months, it felt like another celebrity celebrity would post a selfie of their DIY dye job every day, always some iteration of light pink or rose gold. Now, we're seeing a remix on the soft, whimsical tone heading into autumn: a slightly warmer "golden peach" shade that fits perfectly with the seasonal transition.
According to celebrity colourist George Papanikolas, the trend is embraces a creative colour that's subtle, almost faded, as opposed to aggressively bright. "We're seeing blushy warm pinks and golden peach tones for fall [autumn]," Papanikolas says. "The vibe is less unicorn-pigmented and more of a sheer whisper of colour to give a softer and more demure version of the pastel tones."
From dip-dyed ends to money-piece highlights and more dramatic single-process colour, scroll ahead for a visual guide to pastel pink's cool baby sister — the golden peach tone that will be everywhere this autumn.
