Rachel McAdams’ has a timeless beauty thanks to her dimpled cheeks, flawless skin and classic bone structure. Ranging from a shaggy chocolate bob to a blonde and pink shag to coppered long layers, she takes full advantage of her features by experimenting with a variety of cuts and colors. We style noted her latest look last week , but her hue is getting so much attention, I wanted to give you a formulation that can make it happen. A bright, light copper that perfectly accents porcelain complexions and turquoise eyes, read on to get the steps to this beautiful color, as well as tips to make it work for you… –– Laura Martin 

Tips: This shade is best if you have pale skin with subtle pink undertones. If skin is ruddy or olive, add some violet tones for a softer, more neutral red. Goldwell 7KV is a muted fashion shade that decreases intensity in copper hues. Apply the formula roots to ends using thorough saturation, and process for 30 minutes to guarantee vibrancy.

Formula: (on starting level 8)

Goldwell Topchic 1 part 8KG + 1 part 8OR + 1 part 7KG with 20 Volume Developer
