A Maryland-based hair colorist named Kasey Oh inspired thousands of double-taps on Instagram for creating a look called the "copper peach ombré melt," and like everyone else, we swooned over the warm tones that reminded us of the freshest summer fruits. She told Allure: "Cool tones are overrated. Let's bring some warmth into people's hair this year." As a response to the cool, ashy blondes that have been trending, beauty lovers and their colorists alike have begun craving sunnier tones (think more strawberry, less blueberry), which is probably why Google searches for "copper hair colors" has been sky-high.
A few months ago, Joico colorist Mark Mileti described copper hair to us as the sassier sister to auburn and as the brighter and bubblier sister to burgundy. It's a super-warm, rich tone that comes with a bit of a zing, like a copper penny. As far as red hair colors go, it's one of our personal favorites.
But there isn't just one version of copper hair—there are shades that lean browner or blonder and there are even shades that are more monochrome or more dimensional. If you're thinking about warming up your hair color, we know you'll definitely find the right copper shade for you below.
To keep your copper as shiny as Isla Fisher's, whose hair is truly blinding (in the best way possible, of course) try a color-enhancing deep conditioner like dpHUE's Color Boosting GLOSS+ Deep Conditioning Treatment in Copper ($35).
