With a change of seasons, we commonly see a change in fashion and color trends. While historically cool colors, such as blondes and ashes are the hair of summer, warmer tones such as chocolatey browns or dark caramel browns are the hair color of autumn and winter. After a long summer with social distancing, some of the biggest trends in hair color this year are inspired by foods and drinks that we find joy in and make us feel warm just in name alone. From pumpkin spice to cinnamon bun, we rounded up some of the “yummy” hair color trends for fall 2020 and the perfect shade and type of hair extensions to rock the trend!
While caramel is more honey hued from slowly cooking down sugar, dulce de leche is a Spanish version that is made with milk and sugar. It is dark, sumptuous and rich, making it the perfect color inspiration for autumn and winter. Think a dark brown base with caramel or cream color lengths or ends and you have an ombre style that is also called “dip dye”. This color trend has been rocked by everyone from Lauren Conrad to Jamie Chung.

For the last 10 years, as soon as the days grow shorter and leaves start to turn color, most of us go absolutely wild for everything pumpkin. Starbucks adds their Pumpkin Spice Latte to the menu and stores roll out foods flavored with pumpkin, but the inspiration has also found its way to clothing shades, interior design and even candles. Where hair is concerned, the 2020 version of pumpkin spice hair is less bright red and more dark auburn, almost like a combination of pumpkin with a little bit of chocolate. It is deep, rich and multidimensional and is oh so autumn.

When it comes to blondes, the trend for the past several years has been towards more caramel, warm tones instead of the traditional pale ash colors. Inspired by the hue and tones of honey glazed buns and cakes, there is one Queen that reigns when it comes to honey brunette and that is Beyoncé herself. After a social media blackout for a while, she returned to Instagram this week rocking this signature color of the season that brings on the feeling of fall with just the right amount of a sun-kissed look.
