After Dior showed their new collection on models wearing lots of gorgeous metallic gold eye makeup, it became clear that all the metallic colours would be big news for the foreseeable future!
Pale to rich, dark gold
The latest gold-blonde shades range from glinting pale-gold, through medium golden-blonde to darker antique-gold shades that look fabulous as shimmering golden glints in black hair.
Rose-gold and copper-blonde
Rose-gold is still a favourite new shade and just right for adding some warm glints to black hair and softening the severity of having black hair framing the face. Black hair with rose-gold, or copper-blonde highlights around the front and sides will reflect light onto your face and give it a huge lift!

I can definitely testify to that because I once tried a Chestnut hair dye, which dyed my hair black! Anyway, when I checked in the mirror I could see I looked a lot older, more severe and with every shadow on my face accentuated by the black frame.
Needless to say, I had to go straight to my hairdresser who fixed my mistake and as soon as she had lightened the colour, we both exclaimed how much younger and softer my face looked!
Urban bold platinum-blonde
Of course, if you fancy an edgier urban chic look, the best way is to add some platinum-blonde balayage colour accents. You can really change your image quite radically with a black hair with blonde highlights hairstyle with just a sprinkling of fine gold or coppery strands.

However, for a really bold and dramatic look, a large section can be bleached platinum blonde.
Why not get blonde roots to subvert the,now mainstream, fashion for black roots? Or if you have long, straight black hair, add a horizontal band of blonde highlighting for another original look?
