We’re moving into October, so it’s officially pumpkin spice season. That means that every food and drink you buy will have some sort of pumpkin theme applied to it. And now, that goes for your hair color too. One of the biggest hair color trends this Fall is to opt for a fun and flirty pumpkin spice color.
So what is pumpkin spice hair? It’s a warm coppery color highlight by lighter red accents. It’s bold; it’s striking; and it’s the perfect way to stand out this season. Here’s how to get the look.
Choose the Right Base Color
Any shade of red is going to be more difficult to pull off than other colors. Because red can look completely different on each person, it’s important to really take into account what your base color is before choosing the right shade of pumpkin spice. Blondes should choose a lighter red base, while darker brunettes should opt for a deeper copper colored base to start. This will make the base color look more authentic.
Utilize Color Blending
Color blending is the process of adding highlights and lowlights into a base color to make it look more natural. With a color as nuanced as pumpkin spice, adding in additional color blending will help give it the depth it needs to really bring out the color.
Commit to the Maintenance
Finally, as with any shade of red, you have to be willing to commit to the maintenance of keeping this gorgeous color intact. That means going to regular stylist appointments for touch ups to keep your color looking great.
