We love a celebrity hair make-over and Billie piper’s latest red shade is totally making us think about trying a copper shade for Spring. The actress stepped out last week and unveiled a bold new look – choosing to ditch her signature blonde tresses for a fiery red new hue that suited the star so well we are surprised she hasn’t done it before now. Billie’s bold new do is officially called ‘Burnt Amber’ thanks to the multi tonal shades of copper, rose and blonde all blended together for a seriously glossy finish.
The small screen starlet’s very own hair stylist and Creative Colour Director at Hershesons, Sibi Bolan talked us through her decision to go for something new –
“Billie loves to paly with colour, either to coincide with a new role or to mix things up after she’s finished playing a character. But one thing that’s always constant is Billie’s style vibe – wearable colour and a style that’s lived in – very much next day hair – lived in glamour is what we call it.’
If you love the look as much as we do, then speak to your hair stylist about getting you very own Burnt Amber hair do. Sibi gave Billie’s hair a copper basea nd then used the balayage technique to blend in colour from root to tip before finishing with a rose gold toner. Phewf!
If that all sounds a little technical and time consuming there are plenty of great DIY kits to get a copper glow at home too.
