Copper hair is a blend of red and bronze colors, and because there is no natural tone, a copper hair dye is needed to achieve it. Copper is one of the most popular red hair colors for women right now. There are different shades of copper hair, including soft strawberry and deep ginger to a copper penny. This hue is a slightly darker red compared to auburn hair color.

Picking the right combo will brighten your skin and give life to your tresses. For your inspiration, here are images and pictures of the best copper hair colors trending this year!

Vibrant and Vivid Dark Copper

#1: Vibrant and Vivid Dark Copper

Dark copper is a bold, vivid, vibrant hair color that makes a strong statement. Consider the vibrant copper color if you’ve been considering hair dye ideas! Vibrant copper is a fun way to display a daring style without damaging your hair, as many traditional bright colors do. Always talk to your stylist because, at times, you can get a bright copper color without using bleach.

#2: Cowboy Copper Ringlets

Cowboy copper remains one of the most popular hair colors. Pair it with your soft ringlets for a winning combination. If you’re considering red shades for your hair, cowboy copper might be your ideal choice. It is a soft, natural copper color mixed with golden and brown hues. Make sure to request a subtly varied cowboy copper shade.

#3: Glossy Pumpkin Spice Copper Lob

Try a pumpkin spice copper long bob if you love vibrant hair. Dyeing your hair a vibrant copper is fun but will require lots of upkeep and frequent trips to the hair salon. Invest in good hair products and only shampoo 1-2 times per week in cold water—style with loose curls and a shine spray to give your hair a glossy finish.

#4: Amber Hair with Coppery Tones

Natural redheads often have a variety of red and copper tones that give their hair a beautiful, reflective dimension. You can create this look by applying a dark auburn color at the roots that gradually blends into a lighter shade towards the middle and ends of your hair. The colorist may need to lighten your hair before applying these colors. After this, they will usually apply a toner to enhance the final color.

#5: Fall Copper

Before you choose your usual color, consider trying something new for fall. The colors of the season, orange and red copper, look fantastic against cooler skin tones. These shades can really make your eyes pop. I recommend using color-safe professional products to prevent color fade for hazel eyes.

A copper pumpkin spice hair color would be gorgeous for a cozy fall look on your long hair. Coppers can give you brightness and depth. Discuss the copper tone that best suits your skin tone and features with your stylist.

#7: Cowboy Copper Hair Color

If you desire to change your look for the autumn months, consider introducing trendy cowboy copper hues to your style. Burnt sienna and cinnamon tones are the keys, leaning more towards brown than red. The best feature of this trend is that it will enhance your complexion, which is perfect for the cooler months. To maintain the depth and tones of your new shade, always use a shampoo that is safe for colored hair.

#8: Cowgirl Copper Hair Color

If you want a vibrant hair color, cowgirl copper is a good option. This captivating hue combines warm and rich tones, which gives a beautiful and bold appearance. The main reason women prefer this color is its boldness. Cowgirl copper fits several skin tones, including fair, medium, and deep. Whether your undertones are warm or cool, this color is versatile enough to enhance any complexion. For the best cowgirl copper shade, seek advice from a hair color expert. They can adjust the color to fit your hair’s natural tone. This ensures a flawless mix.

#10: Flowing Copper Balayage with a Blonde Money Piece

Consider a flowing copper balayage with a blonde money piece for a hair color that’s warm and vibrant. A copper balayage adds a fiery pop of color that complements a wide range of skin tones. If you can, add a bright blonde money piece around the face to add a touch of brightness and frames the face.

#11: Two-Toned Copper Slob Cut

A two-toned copper slob cut could be just what you need if you want to add warmth to your fine hair. This hair color blends earthy and vibrant tones to create a unique hairstyle. The darker roots and brighter ends add dimension and depth to your locks. The copper tones give your hair a stunning glow that complements most skin tones. To make this color last longer, you may ask your stylist to add a gloss treatment at the end of your appointment. This will seal in the color and protect your hair from damage.

#12: Shiny Copper Waves

If you’re looking for a bold and eye-catching hair color, consider shiny copper waves. This hue is great for olive or darker skin tones but is extremely versatile. So ask what color pairs with your complexion. Talk to your stylist about the best way to keep it from looking dull. Give your hair the glossy look by applying a hair masque in the shower after shampooing every 7-10 days. Limit your exposure to UV rays.

#13: Blunt Cut Copper Bob

If you want a new, fun, bright look, try this copper color on a blunt bob! It’s great for someone with fine to medium-textured hair. Although this cut is blunt, it still has tons of texture because of the waves and reflective bright color. It’s a win-win!

#14: Spicy Copper

Consider a spicy copper red hair color. Copper will give you an elevated, sophisticated look. Ask for a level and tone of copper red that suits your skin tone and a root melt. Having depth at the root makes your copper look dimensional. Plus, it works great with darker hair tones. A demi-permanent color will reflect a lot of shine and add longevity to your color.

#15: Stunning Mid-Length Copper and Blonde Hair Highlights

Copper and blonde hair highlights are a beautiful and unique way to add depth and dimension to any style. Ask your colorist for a combo of warm and cool tones for a truly show-stopping look. These should range from golden blonde to a vibrant copper shade. This color is best achieved when the highlights are woven into the hair in a natural pattern. So it’s essential to avoid heavy sections or a block of color. This color can be easily maintained with the correct care and regular visits to the salon.

#16: Copper Makeover

A copper makeover is a perfect way to give your fine hair an edgy new look. Warm, golden, and copper hues playing with the contrast of light and dark can make your features stand out. For your new color choice, avoiding using too much heat styling is best. The color can quickly become dull and lifeless.

Amazing Copper Peach Hair Color

#17: Amazing Copper Peach

Spice up your locks with an amazing copper peach color. When you wear your hair with warm tones, your hair will look rich and shiny. If you have never tried copper tones, don’t forget to take little steps first. Try copper highlights first before coloring all your hair.

#18: All-Over Dark Copper

Color changes from light blondes to rich deep copper reds require time and expertise. The key to achieving this look is a double process starting with a fill on the hair. This is when you add the underlying warmth at the level you’d like to help the tone and longevity of color. If you don’t fill your color, your hair will wash out and be completely flat! Following this process, you will apply your final color over the copper-filled hair and rinse.

#19: Show-Stopping Copper Layers

Copper is the most asked-for trend this season! This is a universal color, great on any skin tone, and easily achievable. My advice is to have your stylist show you a variety of copper shades. Or, come prepared with some of your inspirational pictures like this one. Be prepared to love these copper hairstyles no matter how you decide to wear your locks!

#20: Dimensional Red-Copperish Short Hair

Combining red and copper is one of the best ways to spice up your color. During your consultation with your stylist, ask for an all-over dark red copper with light copper highlights. This has pumpkin spice written all over it! Perfect if you are looking for a new fall look.

#21: Bold Medium-Length Copper Hair Color

Are you looking for the perfect fall color? Ask your stylist to try a bold copper! This color is perfect for women with a warm or neutral skin tone. If you have light-colored eyes, specifically blue or green, this color will make your eyes pop! Anything in the red or orange family tends to fade faster than other colors. Your hairstylist may suggest washing your hair in cool water or using a colored conditioner.

#22: Extra Long Bob with a Blonde Money Piece

Go for the season’s hottest style with an extra long bob and bold money piece. Beautiful warm, copper-rich tones make your locks look shiny and luxurious. A bold money piece is the best way to add a pop of color to brighten your hair and complexion. Be aware that warm red and copper tones fade quickly, so you must refresh it often to keep it looking fresh.

#23: Sun-Kissed Copper Waves

Look ready for the upcoming season with sun-kissed copper waves. Warm tones are the way to go if you want your hair to look shiny and luxurious. Light-reflecting tones of gold and copper make your strands sparkle. Ask for a bolder money piece around your face to make the color pop and brighten your complexion.

#24: Charming Bright Copper and Red Balayage

Try a charming, bright copper and red balayage for a gorgeous, natural-looking hair color that turns heads. This is one of those perfect examples of copper hues, no matter your hair type. However, coppers may be more achievable if your hair is lightened. If you choose this copper color hair, I highly recommend using a color-safe shampoo.

#25: Dark Copper Base with Light Copper Ends

Go for a bold color with a dark copper base with light copper ends. When dyeing your hair with red and copper tones, know it will fade quickly. Be prepared to refresh every 4-6 weeks to keep your tones looking bright and vibrant.

#27: Vibrant Copper Balayage with Dark Roots

Try an impressive balayage with darker roots for a luxury look that shines and has vibrance. Ask your stylist for a hand-painted balayage with a dark shadow root to achieve this style. The mid-shaft to ends will be color melted together to get a seamless result. This look is a high-maintenance color that needs a refresh every 6 weeks, but the outcome is worth it.

#28: Fabulous Light Peach Copper Long Hair

We love the fabulous light peach copper long hairstyle if you want to show off your effortless red hair. A light toning to a peach color can accentuate your copper hair.

Orange copper hair has a soft and faded tone, which is very feminine! It offers that “cool girl” vibe that suits younger ladies. To give it a more modern touch, jazz it up with loose waves and curls. Then, secure the style with a mist of texture spray to boost its definition and add dimension.

#43: Copper Hair for Dark Skin

A vibrant copper could bring out the warm undertones in your dark skin. If you want to have little daily upkeep and maintain moisture for your hair at the same time, then styling it in a long sleek style would be the way to do it.

#44: Fabulous Long Hair with Light Copper Gloss

A vibrant warm copper on fabulously wavy hair is an easy classic style. Styling it with waves also gives a super polished, neat effect and would look best on long hair.

Inspiring Fiery Copper Balayage
Instagram @_watchmepaint

#45: Inspiring Fiery Copper Balayage

A deep mahogany root melting into a deep reddish-brown makes this copper-inspired look stand out in a crowd.

#46: Color-Melted Balayage Peach Copper

This is what we call color melting. It’s a technique that blends colors, leaving no clear lines between the different tones, creating a multidimensional effect. It’s very trendy right now and so much fun to realize. As for the color, there’s a new wave of copper, and I love these new soft blond copper tones.

When it comes to dyed hair, you must ask your hairstylist if your stands are healthy enough for a balayage. Use Depigmento, a nourishing, reconstructing lightener that gives the extra shine. This style is a perfect fit for many of us as it has different shades, therefore, goes well with different skin tones. However, it’s always important to ensure that either the warm or cold hues fit the pigmentation in your hair and skin.

Chestnut to Brighter Copper Ombre
Instagram @manely.summer

#47: Sunset-Inspired Chestnut to Brighter Copper Ombre

My absolute favorite thing about this color is it reminds me of a sunset. The way the golden brown blends nicely into the copper reminds me of a perfect sunset. When the curls hit the sunlight, you see the different tones. This was a lot of fun for me to do. Warmer undertones in your skin will bring out coppers the best, so when choosing a color like this, keep that in mind.

Second, be specific about what kind of copper you are looking for because there are many variations. When getting a lighter color than your natural one, even with copper, be prepared to take good care of your hair. That means using the best shampoos and conditioners for color-treated hair and the right products to keep your hair’s integrity. Last but not least, if your lifestyle is busy, coppers tend to be a better fit because the richer the copper, the better the fade-out, and the better the fade-out, the longer you can go between toners and touch-ups.

#48: Bold Cherry Red to Copper Colored Hair

Fire hair, beautiful copper color, shiny hair, beautiful curls. These copper hair colors have it all! The best way to have beautiful hair is to treat it! I like Olaplex treatment and used Lumishine coloring, which repairs your hair. I like to use my iron cone for the curls because it works miracles!

Then you’re done by just passing your fingers or combing with big teeth. For the maintenance of your hair, it’s necessary to have a good professional shampoo and conditioner (I like the Redken color extend magnetics). You will also need a good treatment that will repair, moisturize, and at the same time revive the colors, like the Joico luster lock. A curing oil always has its place too, and a little hairspray for the finish will do the trick.

Long Copper to Merlot Ombre

#49: Sophisticated Long Copper to Merlot Ombre

This look is a warm red-to-copper color melt with a pop of yellow, which I love the most. Think if this would suit your style and lifestyle, as this type of color will need maintenance.

Casual warm copper

#50: Casual Warm Copper

What I love about this warm copper look is its uniqueness. Most women are afraid to get out of their comfort zone when it comes to their hair. You cannot go wrong with copper. It’s universal and can work with you if you aren’t afraid to rock it!

Yummy & Delicious Chocolate and Copper Hair Color

#51: Yummy & Delicious Chocolate and Copper

If you want a bright, fun color like copper and chocolate, be ready to rock it! Heads will turn, and you will get stared at.  The less you shampoo, the better (dry shampoo is your best friend); the cooler the water, the better. Think of it like your bright clothes. You never want to wash your brights in hot water, or they will fade extremely fast. The same goes for your hair!

Trust the process. If your stylist says copper may take more than one session, let them do it in more than one session! If your hair is dark, you can only add a bright color after lightening it first. Think of your hair as construction paper and your hair color as crayons. If you have a black or brown piece of paper and the color on it with red or purple or copper crayon, it won’t show up well. But amazing stuff can happen if you put it on a white piece of paper! You want to be lighter for the brighter colors to show in your hair.

Curly Copper Cinnamon
Instagram @chiriac.ionela

#52: Vibrant Curly Copper Cinnamon

This look is a dimensional copper-red with a subtle shadow root. I went about two shades darker on the base and melted the dye job into a vibrant red on the ends. This look can be easily achieved if you have lighter-colored hair. If you have dark brown or black hair, you must pre-lighten your hair to achieve this brightness.

Be prepared for the added time and expense. If you want this fun color, at-home care is critical. A salon-quality color-safe shampoo and conditioner are required to help maintain this color. A professional color-depositing shampoo or conditioner can also help with at-home maintenance, but it’s important to rebook with your stylist in about 4-6 weeks. This will ensure your copper red stays fresh and vibrant.

Transitional Pumpkin Spice Copper Hair Color
Instagram @mustinnn

#53: Transitional Pumpkin Spice Copper

This color melt reminds me of everyone’s favorite fall beverage, the pumpkin spice latte! My favorite thing is that it’s a great transitional color for summer blonde hair. It adds that copper underlying pigment before transitioning them to darker winter hues.

I recommend this look for fair skin types with more neutral/pink undertones. The high lift color on the ends does best on fine hair, but thick hair can also wear it. That said, copper should take two processes to get to the desired lightness. I believe this color will suit you if you are looking for warmth! It can be classy or edgy, depending on who is wearing it.

Romantic Copper Sunset Hair Color
Instagram @nadasalon_

#54: Romantic Copper Sunset

This color is a rich blend of copper and red copper tones, combining a few shades to make the overall look pop. It reminds me of the warm, glowing shades the setting sun displays in the fall. To keep the vibrancy of your hair color, use a sulfate-free, color-protecting shampoo like Redken’s Color Extend Magnetics. This is a fairly low-maintenance color which makes it a great option. It does need to be refreshed about every six to eight weeks to replenish its intensity. It works if you have a cool skin tone. Copper is a stunning color if you have blue or green eyes.

#55: Popular Dark Copper Balayage with Mahogany Hues

Try a gorgeous copper-infused balayage. It’s perfect for fall! I love the richness of the color and the movement the lighter copper pieces bring to the overall style. This look is perfect if you’re an on-the-go woman who can’t commit to entering the salon every five weeks. It is a low-maintenance look that requires a root retouch at your discretion. It’s both cost-efficient and easy so you can go right with that!

#56: Versatile Brown Copper Highlights

This copper balayage can go from season to season and remain on-trend. The grow-out process will be seamless, with no harsh line of demarcation. My favorite thing about this particular creation is the dimension. The highs and lows will force eyes to move up and down your hair! The only part of maintaining would be the shade you choose. With this copper look, you would pop in the salon for a glaze every six to eight weeks or whenever you need a refresher! Copper can be brighter or toned down, allowing for various shades to cater to those in different work settings.

Natural-Looking and Classy Bright Copper Hair Color
Instagram @bangmyhair

#57: Natural-Looking and Classy Bright Copper

Ask your hair colorist to keep your natural root color and enhance it slightly to give a dramatic look without creating harsh regrowth lines. It also helps give a little more depth to your hair color and allows the copper to pop. Copper tones are always great on a more fair complexion and can also help to accentuate your soft freckles and make your green eyes pop! A copper hair gloss or conditioner is viable to maintain the tone.

Unfortunately, copper/red tones like to fade. Use a gentler shampoo for colored hair or sulfate-free products. Adding in a copper shampoo like Joico Color Infuse copper shampoo/conditioner is a great way to keep the copper’s vibrancy at home between salon visits.

Edgy dark brown to copper red ombre
Instagram @_watchmepaint

#58: Edgy Dark Brown to Copper Red Ombre

The darker root and vibrant ends look a deeper contrast around your face with a pop of warmth on the ends. The seamless transition from dark to light is the best thing about this look. It is gorgeous professional color but with just a pop of edginess. This color is for you if you have a lighter skin tone. The warmth of your hair will look great with a light or light/warm skin tone. I would not recommend this color if you wash your hair daily, as the color tends to fade faster. I recommend this color if you want a creative new look without coming in every four weeks for a touch-up!

#59: Super Feminine Sunset Copper

Consider a gorgeous sunset copper shade that has lots of vibrancy and dimension. Redken Color Extend Magnetics shampoo, conditioners, and Megamask are needed to use between services to maintain health and color. As long as your hair is pre-lightened, it will achieve vibrancy. Results vary depending on starting level, but all Redken color is customized and produces beautiful results.

#60: Coolest Natural Copper on Brown Hair

This natural copper on brown hair reminds me of fall. I love that it’s still natural but vivid at the same time.  I recommend this gingery color if you have medium-textured hair. Medium to pale skin tones (even with freckles) looks extremely cute with this hair trend.

#61: Intense Copper Hair with Yellow Highlights

I love this combination because it brings out that sassy edge we sometimes need. It will complement you if you’re a natural redhead or strawberry blonde. By intensifying the copper/red tones and adding dimension with highlights, it brings your color to life. You’ll want to use a sulfate-free shampoo to preserve the vividness of the color. Additionally, rinsing with cool water will ensure the longevity of your hair color. This look is perfect if you want to embrace your natural red hair and give it life again.

#62: Low-Maintenance Short Copper Hair

Try stunning short copper-red hair as a blunt cut. I recommend Lanza Healing Color shampoo, conditioner, and Lanza Healing Oil to style. These products give amazing smoothness and shine to show off the cut and color. It works best on thicker hair, so you have depth within your haircut. I have done this cut and color on both pale and olive skin tones. To maintain the sharpness of this look, it does take maintenance and regular salon visits.

#63: Multi-Dimensional Natural Light Brown Copper

Consider taking your natural copper hair to the next level with this multi-dimensional hue. To maintain your gorgeous color, I recommend using Unite 7 Seconds shampoo and conditioner for shine, moisture, and color protection. I used a 1-inch iron from Babyliss for gorgeous waves, followed by Unite Texturiza and Unite Tricky Lite Spray to keep it voluminous and bouncy. In my experience, copper is so versatile. I believe copper can work with most skin tones and hair textures, but finding the perfect copper for you is crucial.

#64: Blazing Red Copper with Bangs

Try a blazing copper and pair it with bangs. Your skin tone is very important when choosing a copper tint. For example, light skin tones and ladies with clear eyes wear coppers nicely. You can opt for light balayage on naturally copper hair to strengthen the color. For blondes, opt for soft copper. For the brunettes, an intense copper color is marvelous. I highly recommend consulting an experienced hairstylist/colorist to choose your copper color. Do not try this at home! As with any color, coppers require a fair amount of maintenance.

#65: Luminous Deep Ginger Copper

Opt for deep ginger that’s full of depth. The roots gently melt into this rich and bright copper. It’s a very multi-dimensional color which makes it so luminous. This fiery copper goes perfectly on light porcelain skin and will give this skin tone tanner. Any hair type can suit this color, but you have to know that it will be high maintenance. Unfortunately, copper, ginger, and red colors often wash out fast. Talk to your stylist about refreshing it every five weeks.

Subtle Sandy Brown Copper Curls
Instagram @color_by_casey

#66: Subtle Sandy Brown Copper Curls

Try a sandy copper brown hair color if you have slightly curly hair. These coppery tones suit both cool and warm skin types. The best hair type for this color is a medium to thick density to allow the true color to shine through; the more hair you have to play with and create movement, the better. This color is perfect if you want something edgy and bold and express your boldness through your hair. But on the other hand, it could be better for you if you want something low maintenance.

Fresh Brighter Copper with Gold Highlights
Instagram @manely.summer

#67: Fresh Brighter Copper with Gold Highlights

Glints of gold play off of the copper tones when it hits the light. Copper tones fade easily, so I recommend using a color-safe shampoo and conditioner to increase the longevity of the color. Copper tones work well on fair-skinned women with green or blue eyes. These tones can warm up your pale complexion and add life to your hair. Copper hair requires maintenance and regular salon visits to refresh your color.

Rooty Long Layered Golden Copper
Instagram @ryennesnow.hair

#68: Rooty Long Layered Golden Copper

Try a rooty, dimensional, golden copper hair color, close to auburn hair color! It’s always a constant battle to keep red hair color as vibrant as it was when you walked out of the salon. My most important advice is to avoid washing your hair every day! I recommend investing in a red-toned shampoo to keep red hair vibrant in-between color services. My favorites are WaterColors Fluid Fire for your true red-toned hair, Liquid Copper for your copper-toned hair, and Crimson Splash for your violet/red-toned hair. For this particular look, I recommend Liquid Copper.

You need to ensure your skin tone is complementary to the tone of red you are looking for. Fair skin types with pink/rose undertones wear strawberry blonde and light coppery tones very well. Light to medium skin tones with warm golden or red undertones are the most diverse, and you can wear anything from golden strawberry to copper/red auburn to bright, red-toned hair. Medium skin with olive undertones looks best with cherry and violet-red. Dark skin tones should avoid golden tones, as blue/violet reds are most complimentary.

Beautiful Copper Auburn
Instagram @zofija.witch

#69: Beautiful Copper Auburn

Copper auburn is a beautiful color to try. To achieve this color, your colorist could use L’Oréal Dia Richesse 6.53 with a copper mixer to intensify the color. To maintain your hair color, I recommend the L’Oréal Professional Vitamino Color Shampoo and the L’Oréal Professional Color 10 IN 1 Perfecting Multipurpose Spray. These products will help bright colors like this last by protecting against fading. This also acts as a leave-in/heat protectant, so it’s the perfect product if you are lower maintenance and don’t want to use five different products in your hair!

On-Trend Rich Copper Hair
Instagram @mustinnn

#70: On-Trend Rich Copper

This look says fall! Fall brings out beautifully rich and warm tones. This color is great if you have a light skin tone. Reds help bring color to paler skin tones. The style is versatile and would look great on you, no matter your hair length.

blended copper tones
Instagram @stephderehair

#71: Blended Copper Tones

This is the perfect bold fall look with its blended copper tones. They remind me of Colorado’s autumn foliage. Use Joico copper/red shampoo for at-home care, cold water to shampoo, and a medium heat tool to style. These items will all help with the fading process. This look is for warm skin tones with fine-medium hair texture. It’s a high-maintenance look, so it’s only for those who visit the salon once a year. Visits every four to six are preferred to keep it nice and fresh.

Melted Balayage Peachy Copper
Instagram @manely.summer

#72: Melted Balayage Peachy Copper

This is a natural melt into a balayage peachy copper. It will grow naturally and softly, so it’s lower maintenance than one might think. You can pop into the salon to have your roots topped up and ends refreshed as needed. I recommend this look if you want a low-maintenance root but want to have fun with your ends. When choosing a color for your hair, consultation is key. You must always consider skin tone, eye color, and lifestyle. If your skin tone is light with cool undertones, you’ll suit more peachy tones of copper than red copper.

#73: Younger-Looking Copper Color Melt

This copper hair looks like a copper color melt. My favorite thing about this color is how it complements the changing seasons. This is the perfect transitional look if you’re a blonde woman wanting to go darker. Maintaining a copper hair color can be hard. But you don’t have to stress. I recommend using a color conditioner or color ball every few washes to prevent fading. I recommend this color to you when you want a super fun but still natural hair color. Coppers also suit fair-skinned, freckled women quite well.

#74: Wonderful Copper with Golden Tones

Copper hair can remind me of autumn and the changing of the leaves. I love the red, copper, and golden tones. I blow-dried using Evo Shape Vixon volumizing lotion and Root Canal volumizing spray and curled with a 1-inch curling iron. Then, I used Evo Shebang-a-bang dry spray wax to give texture. For reds, using a color-safe shampoo and conditioner is especially important. I used Evo The Therapist shampoo and conditioner.

#75: Fierce Fiery Copper

You should try one of the best colors in this fierce, fiery copper. My favorite thing about it is that it’s a bold, vibrant color and is perfect for the fall. I suggest using a professional color-safe shampoo and conditioner to maintain such copper hair ideas. I recommend a colored conditioner such as Revlon’s Color Ball in 740. Using this will help maintain this hair color in between salon visits.
