Redken Goldrush Brushed Copper How-To

From edgy lamé mini-dresses to glittering brocade, the runways of New York Fashion Week shimmered with accents of gold. This Brushed Copper How-To from Redken is inspired by those golden girls. It’s a subtle-yet-striking look that borrows a technique from the gold jewelry seen on the catwalks. Hair is lightly brushed with a sunlit-copper tone concentrated on the ends to create a shimmering, gold-dipped effect that perfectly enhances texture and shape on choppy cuts.
