Color How-To: The New Pumpkin Spice

Last year’s pumpkin spice color was deep and rich. To update the fall favorite for your clients this year, try this multi-dimensional pastel version with hints of rose gold. Created by CHI hairstylist Ivan Rodriguez (@ivan.rodriguez1), this vibrant shade combines red, copper and auburn tones that can be customized to suit your client's natural hair color and skin tone. To complete the look, add soft touchable bends and waves to enhance the color's dimension and shine. Try it on your next PSL lovin’ client.
