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 →

Sun-bleached colors aren’t just light, they’re also warm and soft, like this delicate shade of red-blonde. More subtle than a typical strawberry, this barely-red shade in flattering on most skin tones, and won’t clash with jewel toned dresses or your favorite red lipstick.

The subtle dimension makes her mane glisten and sparkle like a sheet of precious metal. Get the formulas and tips on application in the style notes. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
