Global celebrity hair colour trends are being made right here in Australia, as TV and film star Katherine Langford, famous for her work in 13 Reasons Why and Love Simon, opted for a bright red hair transformation, and made headlines in the process. The change was courtesy of Perth salon business Circles of Hair, known for their influencer and celebrity clientele and ability to dominate online conversations. The change was courtesy of Sharlene Lee and Jessica Del Borrello.


“I’ve been looking after Katherine’s hair since she was at school,” Sharlene said of the Aussie actress. “She came into the salon for a big chop and we decided to go for a massive colour change. We both decided copper tones is the way to go as her skin tones are perfect for this colour. Three days later she was back into the salon for the transformation, before heading to London.”


We previously reported that copper is being heralded as the bona fide hue of 2019, and Katherine opted for the trending colour with this trusted salon behind the chair. The change acts as the ideal evolution to those with natural dark brown hair, and Circles of Subiaco utilised Inoa and L’Oréal Professionnel for optimal results.

“There are so many different ranges of colour when it comes to the copper tones. You can have a dark copper or a very light copper, it’s just that easy,” Sharlene said.

The new look captured national and international attention, with features on local Perth-based websites such as Perth Now, entertainment focused publications such as Nova, Pedestrian TVand Bustle and fashion and beauty sites such as Elle, marie claire, Pop Sugar and Cosmopolitan. Katherine represents one of Australia’s brightest rising stars, and her international screen work and social media following (she boasts over 13 million Instagram followers) makes her a beauty influencer and authority. Katherine’s latest snap showcasing the rich copper hues in her hair garnered over 2 million likes.

As copper takes over the internet and your favourite celebrities’ feeds, you’ll be seeing the colour request and images like Katherine’s pop up in your chair. Circles of Hair will be a leading salon transforming clients and revolutionising trends this season, we urge you to follow in their footsteps.
