A pumpkin spice latte hair and beauty look for fall

Love it or hate it: PSL season is solidly upon us. If you love sweater weather and the Internet’s most controversial beverage, why not create a look to go with it? 


Add some seasonal tweaks to your wardrobe and to your beauty routine this autumn to keep those pumpkin spice latte vibes with you–even if you can’t frequent your favourite Starbucks as much as you like this year!


Cozy up with some chunky knits 


Knits in orange–from burnt orange to a vibrant shade–work for everyone. Update your favourite fall sweater with this bright pick-me-up or make it a colourful basic in a muted or neutral tone.


If you’re in the market for a new sweater, look for one with interesting details at the collar or shoulders to serve as a piece in your WFH wardrobe. Look for cozy styles in a material like a merino wool blend to stay warm and chic!


Add some warmth


Itching for some change? While cooler brown tones are trending in 2020, mahogany or caramel are also great choices for fall and winter. These options are easy to do for at-home colour for highlights or an allover colour. However, if you have ebony hair, your best bet is to go into the salon. Have them professionally bleach, tone and gloss your hair.


If you want to go really warm, terracotta is a colour you might want to try. This could be a tricky one to pull off, so unless you have the confidence, try and make an appointment!


Go for volume


Match the excess in your pumpkin spice latte with some volume. Despite its size, the cordless curling wand can give you those large loose curls despite its 1” diameter.


The cordless curling wand has a uniform barrel for great curls without the learning curve. And the curls can keep on going–the titanium barrel and the up to 400ºF temperature of our cordless curling wand are a few reasons why you can skip a styling day.


Pair it with our paddle brush for more styling options!


Make a statement


With makeup looks limited during this time, now is the time to experiment with bold eye looks–and seasonal colours.


If a classic smoky eye is your go-to, recreate this look with an autumnal palette. There are a plethora of tutorials out there to create looks you’ll want to wear out of the house.


Check your palettes for any suitable colours–they’ll probably be there. But if you’re itching for something new to play with, we suggest Elf’s pumpkin pie and Two Faced’s pumpkin spice or salted caramel palettes.


Go diffuse 


To keep the look from overwhelming your face, pare everything else back. A neutral or nude lip and some light contour or blush will keep everything in balance.


If that’s too much for a daily look, incorporate the colours in diffused blush and a pigmented lip. It’s a perfect look for Zoom sessions with classmates or a virtual meeting for work.
