We’ve already started seeing strawberry blonde and copper-toned tresses popping up all over social media and it’s the colour du jour of It-girls Lara Worthington, Zoey Deutch and Kate Bosworth. If you’re wary of looking 'ranga' then it’s worth noting that copper isn’t simply red or orange hair. It’s a cool-toned multi-dimensional hue that makes blue eyes look brighter and gives skin an ever so subtle glow.
