Pumpkin spice - Winter’s favourite colour trend

You might have seen our recent Facebook post about orange hair – it was one that got a lot of love! Here we talk through the various ways to wear this winter warmer.

Ombre:

Just as popular as our winter Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the ombre trend has been floating around for a long time now. But this season, hair colourists are going to town with the look, ditching the usual pinks and violets in favour of a gorgeously warm orange palette. Now is the time to play with deep dark ruby grapefruit, fading away to a bright peach, but also, consider placement; it doesn’t always have to be dark to light – why not switch things up and go light to dark from roots to ends? A great complementary shade for those who want deep, dark roots is an intense purple or plum tone.

Orange All Over:

Whether it’s a cool, pastel peach or a tangerine dream, orange is a colour that suits most skin tones – they just need to be brave enough to carry off this full-on interpretation! Most people who want to get this rich colour pay-off might have to accept a helping hand from bleaching products, which ultimately will mean more upkeep and maintenance. Make sure you book them in for conditioning treatments as well as top-ups around the six-week mark.

Multi-Tonal:

For those who want to make their hair look thicker and more textured, opting for multi-faceted colour is the best way to play with the pumpkin trend. Try various shades of golden blonde or chestnut, blended in with copper highlights for a shimmering take on the trend. For those who just want a hint of orange, try weaving a few strands of bright copper into brunette hair or some neon tangerine for blondes.
