6 Pumpkin Spice Colour Formulas for Autumn

Pumpkin spice season is officially here, and we can’t wait to see shades of copper, auburn, chestnut, and gold grace our Instagram feed. Autumn sees the demand for warm and rich colours grow in popularity, with pumpkin spice inspired hair climb to the top of everyone’s Wishlist. One of the best things about this autumn hair trend. Is that you can easily tailor the intensity and vibrance of the colour to your client’s desired results by altering your technique. For example, one client may prefer a subtle touch of copper. Therefore, a dimensional balayage over a full head of colour would be the best option for them. But this is something you can discuss with your client during the consultation. To prepare you for any upcoming colour consultations, you will find lots of autumnal inspiration and pumpkin spice formulas below. Happy spooky season!
