Jane Boddy, Goldwell’s global colour expert, says “Burnished Copper exudes an illuminating warmth that emanates a radiant light akin to the golden hour in autumn. Bursting with orange, red, and yellow layers, it boasts a rich, deep saturation that gives it an intense and vibrant appearance.” 

Chromis Lustre

Chromis Lustre is Goldwell’s latest evolution of bluish-grey hues, infused with striking levels of blue and green. Goldwell says this mesmerising shade embodies the essence of modern colour.

This vibrant shade captivates the eye, drawing attention to every strand and creating a remarkable visual impact.  

“Chromis Lustre is a smoky blue colour that delicately incorporates green and grey levels, portraying a mysterious atmosphere that seems to be plucked from the depths of space,” says Jane. “This unique combination of hues creates a sense of depth and intrigue. The smoky blue base adds a touch of tranquillity and calmness, while the infusion of green adds an element of nature and vitality, and the grey undertones give the colour a contemporary and edgy feeling with a fresh attitude.”
