Ash brown is a medium shade of brown with a tinge of gray. It’s a subtle shade that looks sophisticated when done correctly. If you’re a newbie to the world of hair color, consider getting ash brown hair color.

To achieve this color, bleaching may be required to make your naturally dark hair lighter. This can make your hair dry and dull. To prevent hair damage, make sure you wash your tresses made for colored hair to protect your locks as well as the color.
