Are you thinking of changing your hair color? For brunettes, changing up your original hair isn't, in most cases, simple. Undeniably, brunettes have fewer alternatives than others shades, for example, for those with lighter shades, especially when considering skin tone and eye color. Also, new shades and patterns regularly just work best for those with normally lighter hair.

However, you don't have to turn your back to those luscious brown locks. One doesn’t have to be a blonde to have fun in 2021. Brunettes are having just as much fun, if not more. There are plentiful options of gorgeous shades of brown in exquisite colors and patterns. In this article, we will talk about the best hair color ideas for brunettes in 2021. You shouldn't go for anything too outrageous, but instead, going for a little change would be wiser, like trying out some highlights or a subtle texture.

1 - Chestnut Brown 

Who says you need to go out of the comfort zone to have fun? If you want to have fun while staying in your comfort zone, then this color is just for you! With dark roots and lighter tips, this fabulous color is perfectly fine for adding a little fun and a touch of volume to the hair. The lighter highlights will ramp up your look and add some glamour to lit.

2 - Dark Brown Auburn Hair Color 

A hair tone that is rich and profound with a trace of chestnut warmth, dark brown Auburn hair brings out the best in you! This shade works best on individuals with medium skin tone with a cool undertone and moderate brown or green eyes. It's amazing for individuals with olive skin complexion. For dark brown hair, it’s an excellent choice.

3 - Long Island Iced Tea 

This style is the perfect hair color for those with original brunette locks that lead to a little bit of upgrading. For achieving a precise look, mix up dark and light hues. Ensure the hair at the root are darker than the hair at the tips. This will frame your face beautifully. You may want to get this color done in your home, in which case, you need a good DIY tutorial. However, you may want to get this dye done only at the beauty salon if your hair is already dyed, as it will have to be bleached before dying.

4 - Dark Brown Copper Hair Color 

A rich and warm shade, dark brown copper color is a great way to bring out the beauty of those locks. For people with medium pink peach skin tones, this color is an incredible choice. It gives you the confidence to rock the beauty. Ideal for accentuating honey brown, deep ocean blue, and emerald green eyes, it's great for individuals with distinctive warm or neutral brunette-colored hair. 

5 - Honey Brown 

Honey is sweet, and honey brown is sweeter to look at.  It is a trendy and gorgeous hair color, one of the most fun among the brown shades, making it one of the best hair color ideas for brunettes. It is not even very different from your original hair tone. However, getting this shade requires a strong bleaching session, and you want to avoid this if your hairs are not sufficiently strong. You do not want to bleach hair that is already dealing with damage. How to avoid hair damage from bleaching? One of the best ways to make sure your hair is healthy after bleaching is to go for a good maintenance program that will help to keep your hair in optimum health and shape.

6 - Ginger Beer 

Many people think that maintaining a red here is costly. This is the reason they shy away from getting these artificial hair colors. However, red look extremely trendy and glamorous on most people. It flatters your skin tone and body. But let's be real, red is not for everyone. You don’t have to go full-blown red; instead, go for the ginger beer color, which features shades of light caramel and a beautiful reddish-brown tone. Further, you don’t have to change your base color.

7 - Light Caramel Hair Color 

Light caramel brown hair tone is a warm, brownish shade. It's ideal for individuals with brilliant, warm appearances and warm honey-colored eyes. Stay away from this shade if your appearance is cool or very fair, or you have a pink undertone as it will contrast with your skin. This tint looks great for balayage or ombré highlights in a more dingy chocolate earthy-colored base shade that adds a glamorous magnificence to it.

8 - Cocoa Hair Color 

Light cocoa color is a perfect, stunning brown-colored shade that looks lovely on people with a light complexion and beautiful light blue or green eyes. It's a perfectly balanced shade: neither too faint nor excessively warm. This hair color looks the best when you add rich blonde balayage streaks! It's an incredible option if your normal tone is light or medium cool brown colored. 

9 - Cinnamon Brown Hair Color 

As the spice shade, cinnamon-brown colored hair is a rich earthy colored tone with a bit of coppery zest. Excellent on a wide spectrum of skin tones, including fair, peach, and pink, and medium, and bringing out the best of your appearance, it is a great hair color idea for brunettes. Green, earthy-colored, and hazel eyes elicit this shade of hair tone. 

10 - Espresso  Brunette

Finally, a hair color that boosts all the various shades of skin tones and eye colors, this shade is sure to steal the show! Meghan Markle is known to rock this hairstyle. It’s deep and rich, looks very trendy, clean, and simple, giving you the vibes of an elegant professional look.
