Between the new "wheat blond" hair trend sweeping Hollywood (à la Millie Bobby Brown and Dua Lipa) and the quintessential platinum that comes with the cooler months, there are a ton of hair colors you can fill your Fall inspiration board with. If you still haven't found the one to ask for at your next salon appointment, consider the new "mushroom blond" hair color.
Mushroom blond hair is exactly what it sounds like: it's a version of blond that hairstylists at NYC-based Butterfly Studio Salon describe as being closer to "beige" or "nude." Tamara Defelice of the salon tells POPSUGAR that the look is perfect for those who got "super brassy from going the lightest shades of blond in the Summer, because it preserves hair's health all during cooler seasons."
What sets mushroom blond apart from similar hair colors are its key features: the dark cool brown hue that comes from the root, and the lighter pieces that frame the face. "Don't be scared to keep or create icier blonde pieces around the face frame," Defelice said, and she suggests keeping the look toned with a color-depositing hair product like the Kerastase Bain Ultra-Violet Purple Shampoo ($33).
The hair color looks great on most hairstyles, whether it be a bob haircut or long cascading waves. Need the proof? Check out the following mushroom blond hair looks, ahead.
