Fall is officially here, which means we have reached peak pumpkin spice season. Pumpkin spice lattes, muffins, pasta, yep, even what about hair color? To get your locks up to seasonal tress code, we’ve pulled together some autumnal color recipes to get your hair as rich and delicious as your coffee drink.


Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hair Recipe: Salted Caramel Mocha

Ingredients: Radiant Hair Color in Genova & Color Reviving Gloss in both Cannella & Barolo 

Directions: To cover Lisa’s grays and lift her natural color, our colorist, Alexa, applied Radiant Hair Color in Genova at the roots. Alexa then used both Color Reviving Glosses intermittently in ½ inch sections to create maximum dimension for this festive fall look.
