5 Unique Ways to Wear the Mushroom Brown Hair Trend

A trendy spin on a classic hue.

Mushroom brown hair is the latest expression of the minimalist trend. This barely-there hair color trend is an easy way to add dimension to brunette hair without taking the plunge into heavy bleaching territory. This trend is predominately created with cool tones and ashy hues, but can also be created with warmer tones to flatter a range of skin tones.

Mushroom Brown Hair is Trending

Here are 5 ways to wear the mushroom brown hair trend:

1. Mushroom Brown Bob

Show off your color with a short bob style.

One of the best ways to highlight any new color trend is by pairing it with a fresh, eye-catching haircut. This bob is the cropped and cute style of the summer that promises to keep you cool all season long. This fresh cut promises a summer of easy styling, especially when paired with the mushroom brown trend, a color job that requires minimal styling for maximum effects.

2. Subtle Highlights

Finally, make sure to speak to your colorist about which tones will flatter your skin tone. They will color match your hair color to offer the very best and most flattering shade for you! For some, getting on the mushroom brown hair trend will inevitably lead in a warmer direction.
