How to achieve this shade? 

To achieve this shade you will need to start with a brunette base, you can then easily add Mahogony tones to your hair by using the Josh Wood Colour Red Gloss Range. 

If you are starting from a base that is not brunette we would recommend visiting a salon to achieve your desired shade. 

Choosing the right shade

When it comes to mahogany hair, there are a wide range of shades to choose from. To find the perfect one for you, consider your skin undertone and personal preferences. If you have warm undertones, opt for a mahogany shade with more reddish or coppery tones. On the other hand, cool undertones pair well with shades containing hints of violet or burgundy.
