Cinnamon Spice Is The Warmest Hair-Colour Trend Of Autumn 2020

Bring a recent photo of Zoey Deutch and her glossy copper bob to your colourist, and they’ll tell you to manage your expectations. Going faux red is notoriously difficult — but it’s not impossible. In fact, head into the salon and ask for cinnamon, this autumn’s trending balayage shade, and you might just walk out with the perfect bright, believable auburn.

According to colourist Ryan Trygstad, who works with stars like Lucy Boynton and Jessica Chastain, finding the right tone is actually intuitive. “You have cinnamon in your cupboard, so it’s easy to visualize that warm golden-brown colour,” Trygstad says, adding that fall is the perfect time to try it out. “You can keep any light strands, like your post-summer ombré or blonde balayage, then blend red-bronze tones throughout. The result is a full-bodied shade that’s warm, dimensional, and reflective.”

Ahead, find photo evidence of how the colour reads on different hair textures. While you’re processing, pick up Trygstad’s tips on upkeep to maintain your subtle cinnamon sparkle through fall and beyond.


If you’re a natural brunette looking for autumnal dimension, bring this photo to your colourist. You get the whole range of light blonde, rich browns, and just a hint of red woven throughout.

As Trygstad explains, curly hair reacts to colour differently than straight hair, which is something your colourist should take into consideration when adding shades like cinnamon.”Because curls absorb colour, your colourist might be a little more bold and heavy-handed with the highlight,” Trygstad says. “For people who wear their hair both curly and straight, it’s about striking the balance between too thin and too chunky, to get the payoff with both styles.”


You can go heavy on the orange highlights on top, or play up the golden browns for a more subtle gingerbread-brunette vibe.

If your natural tone skews more blonde or even strawberry blonde, a cinnamon transition is simply about enlivening those deep, rich undertones.

There’s a sweet spot where brown meets red, and that’s where cinnamon lives. Here, you see one of the most subtle variations: a highlight lifted on just the ends that only reads red when the light hits.


Any hair colour can benefit from a hair gloss, but your cinnamon tone is going to see the most dramatic results, as evidenced by influencer Alexis Jordan. “An in-salon gloss every month or so will save you money,” Trygstad says. “It will tone your colour, immediately revive your shine, and it can be processed in the shampoo bowl without foils or actual hair dye.”

If you’re looking for warmth, but not necessarily red red, cinnamon hits the sweet spot. Consider a variation on a warm, almost toasty brown, like this tone on model Joan Smalls.
