If you want to try dyeing your tresses in 2021 but you're not yet ready to commit to a root-to-tip bleach and color sesh, we found the perfect thing for you. Introducing: Hidden hair colors. You can keep the hue concealed by only coloring the underside of your hair. The only way it'll be seen is if you put your locks up in a ponytail or bun—it's the perfect choice for those who work in strict offices.
Interested? Check out the cutest hidden hair color ideas we've seen so far:
1. Unicorn Shades
We love the way the purple color fades into pink.
2. Periwinkle Strands
This periwinkle shade creates a pretty contrast against this girl's mostly black hair color.
3. Eggplant Purple
Fact: Any purple shade will make your hair look extra glossy.
4. Granny Gray
You need multiple bleaching sessions before you can get your hair to be light enough to be dyed gray. If you're not yet ready to go full blonde just yet, pick a few sections of your hair and color it, just like the tresses of the girl below.
5. Chocolate Cherry
If you have brown locks, a cherry red hue is a great color to go along with it.
6. Ashy Purple
Truth: You can never go wrong with purple-colored locks, TBH.
7. Contrasting Colors
The green and purple hues remind us of pretty gemstones.
8. Hidden Rainbow
Your hair might look a little plain, but flip it to the side to reveal a rainbow section. Super cool!
9. Pale Pink
Want to show off your hair color? Try braiding your locks—your black and hidden hair color will intertwine beautifully.
10. Short and Sweet
Hidden hair colors aren't just for girls with long hair. You can also try them if you have a bob!
