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

If there's a trend, a black woman started it.


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.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
