1 Copper

Kylie Jenner is obsessed with color play, so wigs are a must to keep the health of her hair in check. Even still, this bright copper shade she debuted at Coachella is totally in reach for your strands IRL as long as you have a colorist who knows their way around penny-hued dyes. Extra points if you throw some dark root growth into the mix.

2 Rose Gold

The sweetest of the heavy metal looks, you can match your hair to your rosé. A good option for golden blondes (you're halfway there), you're basically adding a pink tint for the soft, warm shade.

4 Silver

Bucking blonde completely, Kesha decided to kick gray up a few notches with a striking silver shade. The key to emulating the natural sheen of the metal is adding dimension and using the right toners. And considering this is one of the most difficult hues to create, skip the D.I.Y. approach and consult a colorist who *really* knows what they're doing.

Red + Bronze = Ronze, which is essentially a classic redhead's edgy cousin. Beloved by Emma Roberts, as well as a slew of other stars, it's super wearable—especially for natural brunettes. It's all about finding the right balance of tones (from golden red to deep bronze) to flatter your complexion.
