Fall Hair Color or Latte Flavor?


Fall Hair Color or Latte Flavor?

It’s that time of year again. Time to snuggle up with a warm cup of coffee, pull on your favorite plaid flannel, and add a little warmth to your hair color. That’s right: the holidays are here! And the hottest new trend this season is, believe it or not, swirling around in that mug you have right in front of you.

This season, it’s easier to confuse your latte order with your hair color than it is to mix up the latest folk-pop bands (they’re all clapping and whistling and strumming the banjo—who can ever tell the difference?).

Let’s take a look at the top four latte-inspired hair colors that will steam up your look this fall.

#1. Pumpkin Spice

A classic drink, nearly synonymous with fall itself, the pumpkin spice latte is a staple on par with chunky sweaters and ankle boots. A gorgeous fall day isn’t complete without it.

What if you could take that warm, spicy-sweet feeling with you everywhere (without having to rush out to the local coffee shop)?

It’s possible now...with the fun, new hair color that doubles as a drink order: pumpkin spice. True to its name, it’s a warm, spicy copper shade. Add a few golden highlights to give your hair some dimension, and rack up the compliments from your favorite, cute barista.

#2. Mocha

A shot of espresso and some rich dark chocolate. Sounds like a tasty beverage, right? Wrong!

Well, half-wrong. In addition to being one of fall’s tastiest go-to drinks, mocha is also a fun, new hair color that’s worth a shot.

Think deep auburn hues with copper highlights and dark-chocolatey lowlights. Warm up your look with this mellow, widely flattering shade.

#3. Cinnamon Swirl

Have you ever tried sprinkling your latte with a little dusting of cinnamon? If not, it’s definitely worth a try. It’s a pretty heavenly combination.

Add that same level of warm, fall delight to your hair color by asking your hairstylist for a dash of cinnamon swirl.

Cinnamon swirl hair, in case your stylist isn’t familiar, starts with a warm honey base. To balance out the golden tones, mix in a good measure of sugary brown lowlights to give the look an overall depth. Voila! A tasty refresher for your sun-kissed summer shade.

#4. Espresso

Nothing will wake you up quite like a piping hot shot of espresso in the morning. Wake up your look this fall with a shot of espresso hair color.

You read that right: espresso is a hot, new hair color that’s sure to get you a double take as you order your next double shot at the coffee shop.

Espresso is a deep, dark, ash brown. It’s especially flattering for those with neutral and cool skin tones.

Whether you opt for a spicy red hue, like Pumpkin Spice, or keep it cool with a hot shot of Espresso, you’re sure to heat things up this Holiday with whichever fun, new hair color you choose. And remember to Always Be Fantastic!
