5 Ash Brown Hair Looks Trending Right Now

This hair color trend keeps your beloved brown locks on-point.

If you’re looking for a way to add some color and dimension to your brown hair without sacrificing the warmth of your natural shade, then you may want to consider ash brown hair. A smoky, almost grayish-green alternative to a classic brunette color, ash brown hair adds an almost matte, neutralizing element to your current hue. When done right, ash brown hair color adds a subtle dose of color for a tasteful and understated way to change up your style. Are you thinking about giving this color a try?

Read on for some inspiration that includes light ash brown, medium ash brown and dark ash brown styles that are all equally sexy and sophisticated:

1. Long & Straight
