Pumpkin Spice Hair Color Is Here, and It’s Perfect for Fall


No matter how basic it’s been deemed in the past, there really is nothing quite like a pumpkin spice latte on the first crisp day of fall. Now Pumpkin Spice Hair Color is here to give you the same feeling in hair color form.

Red hair colors, in all iterations, have had a major moment in recent years. The trend started in 2019 with Zendaya’s dark auburn, then faded into a lighter peach hue for most of the quarantine. After the pandemic, copper hair appeared on Sydney Sweeney and Jennie Kim. Now, it looks like reds are still going strong for fall, after Khloe Kardashian debuted the perfect summer-to-fall transition hue with pumpkin spice latte bronde.

“This winter is all about burnt copper and brandishing red tones,” confirms Mark DeBolt, co-owner and master colorist at Mark Ryan Salon in New York City. “Think deep earthy reds with natural finishes.” DeBolt adds that the color can be especially striking for people with green or hazel eyes.

If a richer red hue seems a little too intimidating, fear not. Karissa Schaudt, colorist at Chicago’s Maxine Salon, says the pumpkin spice trend includes all shades of red. “Pumpkin spice hair color is as good as the flavor tastes,” she says. “The color is full of bold tones that include ginger, cinnamon, and chestnut. Each of these shades can be interpreted as pumpkin spice or blended together to create a very rich tone.

Min Kim, global ambassador for L’Oréal Profesionnel, agrees, adding that there are a lot of nuances under the pumpkin spice umbrella. “This look is inspired by fall tones and themes – butter, honey, shadows, warm light, caramel, copper and pumpkin tones and shades,” she says. “These shades complement not only the season, but also fashion and makeup trends. and let’s not forget the Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

Kim recommends taking photos to your colorist to help you achieve the color you want. “Kardashian’s Color is a great reference to show your stylist what application and technique you’re looking for. It’s also a great base to discuss how it can be customized based on length, texture and the history of your hair color,” she says. “This service can be done with an airbrushed balayage technique as well as encased with foils. Probably, a shine and shine root. ombre will be applied to create overall depth, dimension, tone and shine.

Shades like peach, strawberry blonde, and ginger are also a pretty way to get in on the trend. They always add the spice that makes this look appropriate. Plus, the slightest hint of red will help warm up your complexion as winter approaches. Ask your colorist to start with a peachy gloss to start with and opt for a demi-permanent dye once you know you’re into it. Kristin Ess’ Signature Gloss in Copper Penny and Lime Crime’s Unicorn Hair Tint in Sushi are easy ways to try the trend at home with little commitment.

To maintain your color, Kim suggests returning to the salon every three months and using L’Oréal Professionnel Metal Detox for maintenance. “This will treat and maintain hair color and quality over time and between appointments,” she says.
