"I have been working a lot with earth tones," colorist Jeremy Tardo tells POPSUGAR, adding that the "bropper" trend is an earthy "copper with depth." Lorena M. Valdes, colourist at Maxine Salon, says, "This intense copper with auburn roots will be a head-turner that will transition from the autumn into the new year."
The "bropper" colour specifically is a buzzy new variety of copper that's perfect for brunette and redhead beauties alike. It combines the two popular hues into one ultra-warm and glossy shade.
"This look works well for you if you have dark or light hair that you want to change up and brighten," says Tardo. Those with a lighter skin tone should go for strawberry and light copper hues; darker skin tones should opt for auburn and rich copper shades. To get that rich tone with lots of depth, "Ask your colourist for balayage or highlights to create dimension on the ends," says Valdes.
If you want something slightly lighter, try a toned-down version of rouge that teeters into copper territory. "Copper-ginger is one of the most attention-grabbing colours out there — just look at model Carmen Solomons," says celebrity colourist and Matrix expert George Papanikolas. "You can't not see her wild and curly copper hair, which shows that copper hair is not just for those who are fair skinned. This tone can be warmed up for golden skin tones or also cooled down to a more auburn copper."
