Each change of season makes us want to go to the hairdresser to change our look. And if at the arrival of winter, we lean towards darker colors, summer, on the contrary, would make us go blonde! A completely possible transformation for women with a chestnut or blonde base. For brunettes, it is more complicated. The process will be longer and will require different stages of discoloration. As a bonus, your hair will not come out unscathed. Indeed, clarifying abyss always the hair.
So if you are brunette, we do not advise you to switch to a blonde that is too light. Opt for a color instead dark blond. And to find THE perfect shade, we can count on social networks. Instagram, TikTok and Pinterest are our best sources of inspiration when it comes to beauty. You have probably already seen the coloring trend star of the season in your news feed. This one is for brunettes!
The star color of the summer on Pinterest
The brunettes have found the perfect color to lighten their hair in a rather natural way and above all without having to damage it. Many have fallen for color in recent weeks “blond mushroom”. A shade that brings light and beautiful reflections to the darkest hair. The number of searches for this coloring continues to increase on Pinterest. And according to Tom Spratt, Head of Beauty at pinterest, “Mushroom blonde will continue to grow in popularity over the coming months” he told the magazine UK Glamor.
But what exactly is a “mushroom blonde”? The “mushroom blonde” color is a ash blond mixing differents cool shades of chestnut and blond. It’s the perfect shade between brown and blonde. “It’s between light brown and dark blonde, like a more ash version of bronde hair color” Stephanie Brown, colorist at IGK Salon Soho in New York City, explained to Glamour.
An ash blonde, almost lilac
“I love the idea of using the term ‘mushroom’ to describe the undertone of this hair color” told Joel Warren, colorist and founder of the Salon Project, to the British magazine. “The mushroom has so many different shades of beige and gray that it’s hard to describe its hue”. Just like the “mushroom blond” coloring which sometimes even reveals lilac shades.
As always, if you are tempted by the “mushroom blond” color, we recommend that you go to your hairdresser with some inspirational photos. This will allow him to better realize the desired result. Finally, do not hesitate to tell him that you want a blonde with rather ashy reflections. If this is not the case, you will probably get a classic bronde color.
