How to wear the copper hair trend on every skin tone

If you’ve been scrolling through social media regularly (which, let’s be honest, you probably have), you may have noticed that one hair trend has continued to dominate the celeb-o-sphere: Copper.

Getting a blonde-to-ginger dye job is what helped Emma Stone and Amy Adams land roles early on in their careers, so it’s safe to say that going auburn is nothing new. That said, the vibrant hue has never been as accessible or as coveted as it is right now.

Copper hair initially turned heads in 2020, when Anya Taylor Joy sported a fiery bob while starring as Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit. However, as a trend, it only really took off just under a year ago in a more muted, natural-looking form—specifically, when Gigi Hadid wore a rust-toned hue in long layers. 

More recently, the trend has continued to persevere into 2022, with Kendall Jenner taking to the AW22 runways with the shade and Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney making her own departure from her signature blonde locks just last month.

Needless to say—it looks amazing. However, given that the trend is predominantly worn by white, fair-skinned women, some Malaysians may be dubious about adopting the trend for themselves. Well, we’re here to prove that you can (and should) rock the red.

Exhibit A: Blackpink’s Jennie is the latest celeb to don copper locks and she looks absolutely sensational.
