Thanks to a certain coffee retailer, pumpkin spice has attained almost mythical status as a drink, as a scent, as a color, even as an abstract ideal of the fall season.  If you are not pumpkin’d out yet, you can put the trend on top of you head!  Pumpkin spice hair colors feature warm butternut tones with hints of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Sugar and spice make delicious treats and lovely hair colors. This deep shimmering hue reminds me of those old fashioned cookies filled with nutmeg, cinnamon, and the rich smoke-like flavor of molasses that my grandmother made when I was young. Their flavor was complex, yet simple, just like this shade, which is achieved with a modified single process, but looks almost highlighted.
