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 →


Created by ARROJO Studio SoHo colorist Meagan Behrent at the Best of the Best Show in Atlanta, we love the orangey hue in this pixie razor cut by Nick Arrojo. Orange is not normally a desirable hair hue, as it is most often associated with the brassy tones one finds when blondes go bad, but this is something different entirely. Dimensional, bright, edgy and deliberate the color works with the cut, makeup and styling to create a look bathed in high fashion modernity. Steal the professional Goldwell color formula in the notes.

This vibrant shade takes the peach trend up a notch, adding brightness without sacrificing softness. Subtly dimensional, this color is actually made of two formulas applied in interlocking blocks. The result is punchy and bright but not too loud. Click the notes for the formulas and tips on application. –– Laura Martin

This formula is a happy medium between two of my favorite color trends: rose gold and gray violet. Rose gold is slightly warm, and adding it to an ultra-cool shade softens and brightens. This color is unusual in an understated way. The subtle pink tone makes skin glow while the balanced beige that makes up the hies primary tone provides a classy neutral backdrop.
