Published on Jun 29, 2018

Bored with the usual ash brown hair colour but not into vivid, neon or pastel colours?

There is a new cool-toned hair colour trend taking over: Portobello Mushroom hair! 

Nope, we're not talking about cute mushroom haircut

but the ashy gray-brown colour reminiscent of the popular portobello mushroom.

The multi-dimensional hair colour is achieved with an ash brown hair colour layered with highlights and low-lights.

What we love is that it doesn't just stipulate one single shade of colour but allows your stylist to customize the right shade to customize a colour that best flatters you. You can choose between highlights, balayage or babyilghts and shades from dark mochas, violet browns to beige blondes for a personalized ashy look. 

Here are some possible mushroom brown hair inspiration depending on how you usually wear your hair!

Best for Straight Hair: Babylights Mushroom Brown


If you tend to wear your hair straight or if you like something subtle, opt for Babylights.

Babylights lightens the hair to different levels to create depth and texture using very small sections. This makes the hair colour design look very blended even when your hair is straight, making it a work-friendly and easy hair colour to wear.

Best for Curly Hair: Balayage Mushroom Brown


If you prefer to tong your hair and wear it wavy or curly, balayage is the better option.

The curls will highlight the bigger sections of colour for a more obvious multi-dimensional, multi-tonal look.

Do note that balayage is not compatible with permed hair as it requires bleaching to achieve the specific tones.

If you prefer something more ashy than brown, you can always request for your stylist to use a more ashy base and/or use a violet / ash tone colour as your chosen highlight / balayage colour.
