After watching Nicole Kidman and her glamorous golden red hair on Big Little Lies all winter, we are suddenly obsessed with red hues. And now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s time for our hair to follow suit!
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. Just like the blend of Thanksgiving seasonings, this color is a perfect balance, bright but natural, neither strawberry nor auburn. Neutral makeup looks beautiful with this sultry shade, especially if you have a contrasting eye color. Click through the style notes for tips on achieving luscious pumpkin. Click for StyleNotes →

From a distance this shade would appear black, the violet operating more as a reflection than a primary hue.
