This "Mushroom Blonde" Hair Colour Is About to Take Over Your Instagram Feed
Between the new "wheat blonde" hair trend sweeping Hollywood (à la Millie Bobby Brown and Dua Lipa) and the quintessential platinum that comes with the cooler months, there are a ton of hair colours you can fill your inspiration board with. If you still haven't found the one to ask for at your next salon appointment, consider the new "mushroom blonde" hair colour.
Mushroom blonde hair is exactly what it sounds like: it's a version of blonde that hairstylists at NYC-based Butterfly Studio Salon describe as being closer to "beige" or "nude." Tamara Defelice of the salon tells POPSUGAR that the look is perfect for those who got "super brassy from going the lightest shades of blonde in the Summer, because it preserves hair's health all during cooler seasons."
What sets mushroom blond apart from similar hair colours are its key features: the dark cool brown hue that comes from the root, and the lighter pieces that frame the face. "Don't be scared to keep or create icier blonde pieces around the face frame," Defelice said, and she suggests keeping the look toned with a colour-depositing hair product like the Kerastase Bain Ultra-Violet Purple Shampoo ($33).
The hair colour looks great on most hairstyles, whether it be a bob haircut or long cascading waves. Need the proof? Check out the following mushroom blond hair looks, ahead.
