Want to give your hair a boost of luxury? The mahogany hair trend can give your locks the bold, unique colour you’ve been coveting without being too dramatic. Vivid whilst retaining its elegance, it’s no wonder this is one of the most popular hair colours around the world. The realm of mahogany coloured hair is endless and does not disappoint. Perhaps one of the best things about this nature-inspired hue is that your stylist can offer you a totally bespoke shade. This colour is perfect for those wanting to dip their toes in the hair colouring world without being too bold. Let’s explore why this is a trend that just won’t end!

What Is Mahogany Hair?

 If you want to make a statement with your hair without doing anything too bold or extra, a mahogany hair colour allows you to get the best of both worlds. Mahogany hair refers to a family of rich, multidimensional shades. There are two major shades that make up a mahogany hair colour: red and violet. The precise combination ensures you won’t end up with fiery red hair, but rather a deep and complex hue - a reason this melange is left best to the pros. It’s hair art!

How To Get The Perfect Mahogany Hair Colour

As with any hair colour, the end result varies on the base colour you’re starting with. A mahogany hair colour wins the award for max shine and we’re all about embracing this silky, iridescent hue. When worked onto a dark brown to black base, you’re left with a stunning high-gloss finish. If you’re going from a lighter shade - like blonde, you get an almost ginger shade that will not disappoint. Your experienced colourist will have a good idea of what to expect and offer you a consultation on your beautifully bespoke shade. The aesthetic of this hue has us swooning. Make sure you keep your colour longer by using a haircare system designed to prevent fade such as Pureology’s Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner.

Who Is The Best Candidate For Mahogany Hair?

If it’s just a dose of shine you’re after, mahogany hair is worth considering. The colour suits people with light skin and lacklustre hair and it’s an easy way to neutralise ashier tones and give hair more radiance. As always, a good stylist will take a customised approach, taking into consideration your skin tone, natural hair colour, and personal style to ensure you get the best result. The L'Oréal Professionnel Majirel French Browns Collectionis the perfect permanent hair colour collection designed specifically for brunettes - it offers a whole spectrum of beautifully natural brown shades, allowing your stylist to customise a shade that best compliments your complexion to give you a gorgeous, long lasting and intense colour that provokes major hair envy.
