E!'s first original scripted series introduces viewers to a new royal family. The Royals stars Elizabeth Hurley and William Moseley.
Although E!'s first original scripted series provides a fictional look behind the very public gilded facade of the palace gates, it also provides a wonderful opportunity to see actress Merritt Patterson's Hair.
Long, Lush, Metallic Brunette Tresses
Merritt along with Elizabeth Hurley showcases some spectacular long, lush, metallic toffee hued tresses.
For 2014 the hottest hues, whether blonde, brunette or rose gold, involve a metallic base with lighter highlights.
Hair color trends always follow fashion. Since metallics have been trending in the fashion world, it's not surprising to find it as a hot new trend in hair hues.
Metallic Hues Without The Metal Flecks
The metallic blonde, brunette and red bases are inspired by gold, silver, copper and bronze, but don't expect to find any gold, silver, copper or bronze flecks in the dyes.
There's no actual metal in the hair color formulations utilized to create the trending new hair colors. Instead the focus is on creating vibrant shine.
The new metallic colors are also helping to soften and tone down blondes, brunettes and reds who may have strayed across the lines towards being too harsh or brassy.
The keywords with the new metallic hair colors are radiance and warmth.
Merritt Patterson who stars as Ophelia, in The Royals, has a stunning metallic toffee base with splashes of light caramel cream interwoven around the hairline opening up her beautiful face.
Elizabeth Hurley Lush Metallic Milk Chocolate
The always lovely Elizabeth Hurley also showcases a gorgeous metallic milk chocolate with hints of light chestnut highlights which are most prominent along the edges.
