If you've been wanting to color your hair a rainbow or pastel hue for the longest time but you aren't ready to have vibrant-looking strands just yet, we have the perfect solution for you: ~Subtle~ dye jobs. These are hues that are low-key enough for strict offices because the full effect usually only comes out when the sunlight hits them. Interested? We round up seven of the cutest hair color ideas:

Subtle Hair Colors to Try in 2021

  1. Chocolate Lilac

    If you want to try dipping your toes in the ~purple~ hair color trend but you still want to keep it office-appropriate, chocolate lilac is your best bet. It's the perfect mix of violet and brown—it looks soft and subtle indoors, but you get the full effect when you're outside!

  4. Cold Brew

    This hue that resembles a cup of joe is proof that you can never go wrong with ~simple~ hair colors.

  5. Blue and Black

    If you're not the type to go for loud hues but you still want to change up your hair somehow, we suggesting asking for this chocolate brown hue. It's a far cry from your black tresses while still looking appropriate for the workplace.

  7. Peak-A-Boo Purple

    Feeling a little ~brave~? A hidden hue might work best for you. Ask your colorist to only paint the underside of your strands so the bright hues are completely concealed when your tresses aren't styled.
