Fall is right around the corner, which means it's time to update your hair color! Both ash blonde and ash brown are wonderful cool shades for the colder weather, but which one's best for you? We're here to help you decide!
The color: Ash blonde is a very light blonde – almost white – with grey undertones. It's the perfect marriage between silver and platinum hair!
The style: When your hair is as light as ash blonde, it's important to pair it with bold clothing and bright makeup colors to avoid looking washed out. Think dark reds, magenta, purple...
What the editors say: If you've thinking about trying out the #silverhair trend but don't want to get your whole head colored grey, ash blonde is the perfect way to test the waters. Just remember to use a shampoo for color-treated hair like Shine Blonde from L'Oréal Professionnel to prevent yellow undertones from developing.
The color: Ash brown is a color that can be as light or dark as you'd like, and there are no reddish tints in the hair at all. Many people opt to go ash brown after having been a redhead for a while in order to slowly transition back into brunette territory.
The style: This color looks wonderful on natural brunettes with light eyes. Clothing-wise, blues, greens and light pinks would look gorgeous with ash brown hair.
What the editors say: This color is very versatile and is a great option for a brunette who wants a slight change, but nothing drastic. Speak with your hairstylist about which shade of ash brown would look best on you, and then go and rock it this fall!
