Mushroom Blonde

Mushroom BlondeColder days demand a warmer hair color – and Mushroom Blonde is the latest trend to come from the award-winning Brooks & Brooks team in London. 

Stylist Sam Ashcroft describes Mushroom Blonde as a dimensional blonde with more earthy hues coming through. It falls between dark brown and light blonde, working on the cooler side of the spectrum, and is a shade that suits most skin tones. 

“It’s a great shade for people who are already blonde wanting to experiment with darker tones and people who are brunette wanting to add lightness," said Ashcroft. “It’s low maintenance which makes it perfect for clients wanting to stretch out a little bit of extra time in between their color appointments, whilst still making them look great on their Zoom meetings. 

“I’m loving the new L’Oreal Professionnel Dialight shades to create this look 7.01, 8.21, 10.01 and 10.02. Using these shades to create Smoked Mushroom Blonde makes it feel different from the classic bronde, which is traditionally warmer and more golden. As we head into darker, duller days it’s the ideal shade to bring lightness and warmth to long hair,” he added.
