20. Luscious Balayage With Subtle Purple Tones
There’s a new hair color in town which we’re totally lusting after, called mushroom brown hair. While you may not be sold on the name – the cool, earthy and sophisticated color tones are simply stunning. Read on to find out all about this new hair color trend – as well as get inspired by some of the hottest mushroom brown hair color styles!
The best way to explain this new trend is to get you to think of portobello mushrooms, which is where this color trend gets its inspiration from.
Its defining features are the semi-ashy, earthy and cool tones – which are created by applying a series of lowlights and highlights to an ashy base.
Combining the tones of brown, purple and ashy gray to achieve a multi-dimensional look, mushroom brown hair is ideal for those looking to transition from winter to summer and freshen up their hairstyle with unique, cooler tones – rather than the usual warmer color choices (honey and gold, for example).
While you can find mushroom brown hair dye in most drugstores, it is best to let the professionals achieve the look – especially if you’re hoping for picture-perfect mushroom brown hair.
Mushroom brown hair color formula incorporates highlights, lowlights, and other toning techniques to achieve a really cool, sophisticated look. To create the earthy tint, stylists recommend sticking to only cool, neutral brown and blonde shades for the highlights and lowlights.
