... but what is it exactly?
Mushroom blonde is a stunning multi-tone hair color that plays with the ashy shades of light brown, dark blonde, and grey — just like the colors you'll find on a mushroom! Most of the time, it starts with darker roots that go lighter as it descends the hair. Because of this grown-out look, it can go without touch-ups for up to six months, which makes it lower maintenance than its other blonde sisters (RIP all the dead hair caused by frequent bleaching). And because it's neither brown or blonde in a traditional sense, it's the perfect hair color for natural blondes who want to try a darker shade, and for brunettes who want to go lighter.
If you're looking forward to trying it this season, read on to see hair inspirations you can show to your hairstylist.
