The Hair Color Trend That's Taking Up Space On Our Timeline

Whether you call it cinnamon, cooper, or pumpkin spice, there's no doubt about how beautiful this fall trend is. A spiced-up version of a redhead, this color is fun, fresh and a needed break from our dreary reality. Hair is an expression and by changing it up, you're bound to change your mood. And let's face it, we all need a serious mood boost right now.

Black women are the blueprint for a lot, and that's especially true when speaking about hair. If there's a trend, a black woman started it. Reminiscent of IT-girls of the 80's and early 90's, a la Lil' Kim, cinnamon-colored hair exudes confidence while remaining flamboyant. In more recent years, we've seen celebrities like Rihanna, SZA, and Teyona Taylor rock the red tresses effortlessly.

There's something about this tone on brown skin that elevates any look. Our hair, the texture, the vibrance, the flexibility; every bit made for the creative beauty world we're in today. You don't have to wait until your next costume party to wear red, either. The look is quickly becoming the go-to hair trend for the season.

Spice it up with braids, or keep it cute in kinky curls. No matter the texture or style, this color is the perfect statement for any black woman. It's vibrant, bold , and perfect for the dropping temperatures.

We rounded up the best of the best from Instagram.

Whenever Gabrielle Union graces the movie screen, she immediately commands attention. From her unforgettable scenes in films like Bring It On and Two Can Play That Game to her most recent film, in which she stars and produces Netflix’s The Perfect Find , there’s no denying that she is that girl.

Off-screen, she uses that power for good by sharing her trials and tribulations with other women in hopes of helping those who may be going through the same things or preventing them from experiencing them altogether. Recently, the Flawless by Gabrielle Union founder partnered with Clearblue to speak at the launch of their Menopause Stage Indicator, where she also shared her experience with being perimenopausal.


Over 6 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's, and it is anticipated that by 2050, this number will almost double.
