How to get the copper hair trend and not ruin your hair15.06.2022
Last summer I wanted a change. I decided to change my hair color on a whim. It was a great decision. I think my hair will be dyed again this summer. Let me explain.
I am sure that everyone felt some cabin fever during the pandemic. This was especially true during the worst of the restrictions. There were so many places that we couldn’t go to and so many things we couldn’t do even when we were masked. But even though we went out, masked or not, there were still areas that were off limits. Personal care and grooming.
The way we look is a reflection on who we are. Many of us lost our familiar looks deep in the pandemic. Hair cuts and eyebrows both grew, as did the hair. Tans faded with the end of dye jobs. Natural hair replaced extensions as the preferred choice. People were finally feeling natural, even without mani-pedis, facials and waxes.
This was seen as a kind of freedom. It was in some ways. People were able to regain their self-confidence and stop trying to be “presentable.” Who cares if your nails aren’t trimmed every week? Who cares about bushy eyebrows or stubby eyes?
USA Today interviewed several women to find out this. “Despite the pandemic’s restrictions on social life and mask mandates, the loose beauty standards that have accompanied the retreat from public life have been ‘liberating’.”
One woman stated that “If there was one good thing about this COVID mess it was that I was able find myself.” Toss it all!… For whom are we really doing this? It’s not me, I hate that routine.
Kate Mason, a Wheaton College gender studies professor, stated: “Social Distancing and Mask-wearing Give Us More Control Over How Much or Which Parts of Our Appearances We Show… I think any thing that allows people to evaluate what works and not, is a good thing.”
As time passed, freedom that once seemed like freedom became a barrier to personal expression. You don’t need to be a celebrity to make others happy. There are some things that you may want to do to feel like you.
USA Today shared the observation that certain communities depend on their appearance and grooming to be taken seriously. It can be difficult to navigate the workplace environment in a culture where people of color are often judged harsher, especially with Zoom and Slack. One woman said that she felt extra pressure as a woman of colour to appear professional and polished. The Black women who depend on these services were put under greater strain after the closure of many beauty salons and beauty supply shops.
It was not only difficult to be presentable at work or to make others feel good, but it was also disheartening to see yourself in the mirror. It can be quite shocking to go without makeup, hair, or clothes that have been an important part of your self-expression for so many years. These forms of self-expression are no longer enjoyable. It has impacted our creativity.
Mental health is dependent on creativity. No matter what your style, creativity is a fundamental part of mental health.
It’s no wonder that beauty, makeup, and fashion trends have gone wild. Experimentation is a joy for everyone! To be seen and to see! To be free.
Last year’s Hot-Vax Summer, it was imperative that I do something dramatic. I did it.
My natural hair color is black. My hair has been a subject of experimentation since high school. It was an angst-ridden purple and ill-advised grey streaks. Last summer, however, I wanted something that felt natural and was also a little bit different, exciting.
So I chose copper. I chose copper because it was light and honey-streaked, which felt bold, but not overwhelming. It made me feel confident in my everyday life.
That light red was my summer color, disproving the myth that blondes have more fun. I have been blonde. But copper was it.
Imagine my surprise when copper tones started to appear on runways and celebrity Instagrams months later.
Although I don’t claim to have created the hottest Hollywood hairstyle, I think I was. Everyone is attracted by this auburn shade, from Kendall Jenner’s red hair to the dyed hues worn by… all members of the Euphoria cast.
It’s something I can understand. It’s something I am considering. All the celebs who have embraced copper are a reason why, I’m sure. I may even keep the copper in for a longer time this year. While color damage can be deterrent, Colorwow is the perfect solution.
