Rose-gold hair has taken on so many forms to the point where people think that any light pink hue could be considered the trendy shade. But one hairstylist recently created a look that literally takes on the form of rose gold. Malin Meland, who is based in Norway, dyed one of her clients’ hair a soft shade of pink. While letting the dye process in her hair, Meland artfully sculpted it into the shape of a rose. Of course, she posted a picture of her creation on Instagram for all of us to marvel at.
Stylists have gotten crafty as of late with their processing techniques specifically made for double taps. Allure has reported on the glittery balayage hair treatment, more entertainingly referred to as “glitterage,” which involves pouring glitter into the dye before brushing it onto hair. The viral drip hair-color technique has also been stressing people (“people” meaning me) out. However, this is the first time I’ve seen a stylist get Michelangelo with it. In the golden age of Instagram hair and rose-gold everything, it feels safe to say we have truly hit our peak with this look.
If you happen to be curious about the actual color itself, Meland toned her client’s roots and the middle section with a combination of sand, platinum, and strawberry hues after lightening it all over. Then, Meland used only the platinum and strawberry toners on the ends, where the color was darker. Below, what the rose gold looked like once Meland was done.
I’m more concerned about how long it took her to fashion her extremely meta rose. Meland tells Allure it only took her five minutes. It would have taken me 55.
