If you weren’t craving pumpkin spice yet, be warned. This color melt by Los Angeles colorist Megan Schipani (@shmeggsandbaconn) honestly looks like someone ran out of color and just used the rest of their PSL on their client. We reached out and got all of the juicy details for what is sure to be a highly requested color going into the fall season. 

 

Starting Level:

One inch of Level 6 regrowth

Level 8 copper midlengths 

Level 9 gold ends

 

Total chair time: 2½ hours

Pro Tip: When creating a rich copper, it is important to fill the hair with the tones that are missing due to previous lightening or color. Because the hair already had copper and gold tones in it from a previous color, there was no need to fill the hair.
