Just a scroll through your Instagram or TikTok feed, and you’re sure not to miss a pic of one or five sexy-looking Queens sporting a penny-hued bob, some fiery highlights, or a sleek cherry-inspired mohawk.
It’s the one fall hair color trend that doesn’t fail – like ever!
So, if, like us, you weren’t blessed with naturally flowing copper curls or kinks but are down to switch up your look this fall, we have rounded up 18 of our favorite copper hair shades that look good on literally everyone!
SZA will forever be the copper-haired goddess. She has mastered the art of rocking a rusty, metallic red, two-toned look; we have zero complaints so far.
Jourdan Dunn with the rusted penny look and bouncy ringlets. The cool, almost-coopery undertones are so decadent and bold – we can’t wait to show them to our colorist.
Another SZA masterpiece!
Subtle copper-red highlights that blend seamlessly offer your hair a beautiful dimension that pops against brown to dark skin tones.
Another dimensional look – this creates depth and dimension in your strands by keeping the darker tones at the base to balance out an all-over rusty shade.
Deep Copper Afro
Isn’t she majestic?
Deep But Make It Straight
Jordyn Woods always keeps it flawless and fly. And the proof is in this cool ‘do that perfectly complemented her gorgeous, gorgeous skin!
When you want to channel some sunshine in your life without being too obvious, go for this golden hour look. It’s not only fun and head-turning, but it also complements melanated skin in the best way possible.
Now tell us this look isn’t pure fire! The sexy, subtle waves, the fiery but muted burnt orange shade, and the cool, sophisticated, feminine energy? Tres magnifique!
The Coppery Ombre
There’s no universe where an ombre look ever failed a dark-skinned babe. Whether brown, blonde, red, pink, magenta, or copper, ombres always work!
Copper X Auburn
To create an all-over auburn hair look, leave the lighter strands out and then blend in a copper mixture to your hair ends to create vibrant highlights that are a seamless blend.
Or you could show your colorist this picture and let them work their magic!
Cinnamon For The Win
Justine Skye will forever be the hair color goddess. And she bodied this cinnamon-y look like she always does!
The Halle Bailey
Now, you know this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our very own Ariel’s locs!
Yes, they cost about $150,000 (someone’s three-year salary), but you’ve got to admit, they’re the most gorgeous locs any mermaid has ever rocked!
More ginger than copper, but still jaw-dropping!
Big Hair, Don’t Care
No one does effortlessly fly hair transformations like the Queen of Sass herself – Ms. Keke Palmer.
During her ‘Dreamcatcher’ video shoot, the multi-hyphenate Queen sported these voluminous curls in a gingery-red-tinted tone paired with subtle curtain bangs.
And all we have to say about it is – fantamagorgeous!
How gorgeous are these jumbo twists?
Make like hairstylist extraordinaire @michellethompsonhair and break some hearts along your way with these bronzed curls! Drop-dead gorgeous doesn’t even cut it!
The rich monochrome look is at the top of every Black girl’s wish list. Zendaya did it justice, and we can’t wait to try it ourselves.
Metallic Red Locs
Leave it to Meagan Good to show us how exactly to do copper locs.
And let’s say, unlike other looks, this one, by far, is the easiest to maintain. All you need is some hair oil for the scalp, a sheen spray for the locs, and a bonnet for sleeping in the nighttime.
We dare you not to pin this look for your next salon appointment. That bob is on point! The color wraps it all up in a beautiful autumny side-sweep.
