Pumpkin Spice Hair is Trending Again

With autumn well and truly here, as regular as clockwork pumpkin spice everything returns and with coppery reds and dark auburns already being the “it” color this year, it’s back with a vengeance!

And it’s not just hair, since about 2013 the world has been caught up in pumpkin fever the moment last August rolls around and Starbucks rolls out their Pumpkin Spice Latte again. This year however, the Google searches were wild: 

The most-searched pumpkin spice food of all time is neither pie nor turkey, but rather "pumpkin spice cookies"

Last month , searches for "pumpkin spice ravioli" increased +900% ...

... and "pumpkin spice cheesecake enchiladas" searches have exploded over 1,000%

… and searches for "pumpkin spice latte hair color" have spiked +450%.

What makes this particular haircolor so appealing beyond its seasonality is that it works for pretty much anyone regardless of skin tone and offers a warm complimentary look at any complexion.
