The Must Have Copper Haircolor Trend

BY THE REDKEN TEAM November 07, 2022


As seasons change and trends come and go, one haircolor continues to stand out. The versatile and vibrant copper haircolor has inspired even the most risk-adverse to finally go red! 

One of the most popular trends this year, copper colored hair is especially perfect for fall. While you can't go wrong with a classic auburn look, this warm and rich hue is a standout color among the red family this season. Copper features a range of tones, from deep reds to vibrant orange, that allow this color to pop on all hair types and textures.

Since every shade can appear differently on varying hair types and textures, we've rounded up multiple looks for each trending color—all created with a Redken Shades EQ Gloss service.


Finding the right copper tone for you is key. While your hair colorist will help you identify the shade, heading into your appointment with some inspiration will you achieve your dream copper. 

From classic copper to bright fiery copper to copper-meets-auburn, this trending red shade offers much versatility. While everyone can pull off copper, the right tone makes all the difference. Like most haircolors, your skin tones and undertones can guide you. 

For those with warm, dark and olive skin tones, deep and red coppers are a safe bet. Consider adding a touch of brunette with a copper balayage or a dark root base. Shades like burgundy copper, cinnamon copper, deep penny copper, and mahogany are great options. Darker complexions also look great with bright and cool tones like a vivid red copper or orange based shade.

For those with lighter skin tones, consider lighter and brighter copper tones. This includes natural and classic copper, vivid copper, peachy copper and faded bronzed shades. For a brighter option, vivid oranges also look great on paler skin. If you have red or rosy undertones, work with your stylist to find the right shade of red to pull our natural rosiness without flushing you out.

While there are no hard and fast rules, you undertones can help you find the color best suited for you.
