When it comes to hair colour, there's a new source of inspiration that's gaining traction. But this time, it's likely to be found on a dessert plate or at your local Starbucks rather than in a fashion magazine. Dessert-inspired 'dos are blowing up in a big way, with a rose gold-infused brown, dubbed chocolate mauve, created by hair colourist Hannah Edelman (@hannahthepainter) of Brooklyn's Brush in Hand, being the colour du jourRich, dimensional and woven full of multiple tones, chocolates and caramels have been traditional go-to shades for hair. But now these tones come with interesting twists, such as tinges of pink and rose gold interwoven with the more basic browns. 

Another trend? #pumkinspicehair that's a nod to both the autumnal season and Halloween. But rather than a scary Jack-o'-lantern orange, this auburn hue with multi-dimensional highlights is actually pretty subtle. 
But if you're looking for pastel or more out there confections as a source of sweet inspiration, you can always try macaron colour — multiple tones in soft pinks, blues and lilacs. Whichever sweet treat is your poison of choice, here are dessert-inspired 'dos that are turning our heads.
