    From coffee to candy, during fall you can find most anything "pumpkin spice." But fall's favorite flavor isn't just for food anymore.

    Women are asking for it at the salon.

    "She's like, 'I kinda want to be like a pumpkin.' I was like, 'Okay,'" said stylist Jennifer Sisk at Lux Machine in Fort Worth.

    Sisk said ever since August, she's had customers asking for pumpkin spice-esque hair.

    "In the fall you kind of want to go richer and warmer," she said.

    One of Sisk's customers, Lacey Perkins, said she's always been a redhead.

    "Well it sort of matches my personality. It's kind of fiery and sassy. It just stands out a little bit from the crowd," Perkins said.

    She's not surprised or upset her hot hair highlights are a new trend.

    "I know it's the season of pumpkin spice everything, so it doesn't surprise me," she said. "Naturally there are so few redheads – real redheads – so I think it's fun. I think it gives us a little bit of an edge."

    However, Sisk said if customers want to try out the pumpkin spice trend, they shouldn't tell their stylist they just want red.

    "Because red could be Reba [McEntire] or Wynona [Judd]," she explained. "It's good to say, 'I want squash hair or pumpkin hair or golden hair.'"

    There's a shade of gourd for everyone, you might say.

    Sisk said customers can also try out temporary toners that will last for about 11 washes before diving into a permanent change.

    As for Perkins, she's thrilled with her fresh 'do.

    "I love it. I think it's perfect. I think it's going to be just great for fall," she said.

    After all, it's just hair. You can always change it.

    "We're going to get older no matter what, so why not just play and have fun?" Perkins said.
