Shine bright with metallic hair color

Looking for a way to reflect your personality this year? How about stepping out of the box and changing your hair color to a shimmering metallic shade! From iron grey to rose gold and platinum, there are plenty of shades to help you show your (precious) mettle through 2018, cast iron guarantee!

Iron grey and lavender

Purple hair has been one of the biggest hair color trends for a few years, and now we're seeing more metallic versions, such as this look where purple roots subtly fade into a darker grey, with an all-over matte finish. If you've been tempted by a light purple or grey hair color, remember to use the right shampoo and conditioner to avoid color fade or yellowing. We recommend the Series Expert Color A-OX collection to keep grey and purple hair bright and healthy-looking.

Rose gold with cherry

Rose gold is a popular spring shade, but this slightly pinker version, as if a cherry were dipped in gold, is a great option for warming the complexion in winter. The key to pulling off this color with confidence is all in its natural movement and shine. When styling, don't weigh down the hair with excess product: a light gel like Fix Move by Tecni.ART is all you need for control, volume and texture.

Platinum lilac

Bright bleached platinum blond has long been associated with Hollywood sirens, but its cousin the cool lilac version is more of an urban shade that looks great when cut in short blunt haircuts like here. Don't forget to use a regular mask in your haircare routine to prevent the lengths from drying out and causing frizz and flyaways. The in-salon Powermix Color mask is ideal for restoring and boosting the intensity of your colored hair, and can be mixed according to your hair's exact needs.

Are you ready to try a metallic shade this year? If so, put the pedal to the metal and head to your nearest L'Oréal Professionnel hair salon!
