If you're growing tired of your look, it might be time for a new dye job. Getting your hair colored is a fun way to zhoosh things up without revamping your entire closet or splurging on new makeup products. Still, we do understand that choosing out the right hair color intimidates many first-timers. Here's the good news: There are actually lots of pretty hair colors that don't require much maintenance, plus some of them are actually celeb-approved, too! And even if you're no longer a hair dye virgin, these subtle tones can totally transform your whole vibe.

Ahead, check out 8 celeb-approved hair color ideas that are perfect for low-key girls and beginners alike:  

1. Andrea Brillantes: Ginger Brown

In case you haven't noticed, red orange hair has been making rounds on social media lately. But if that trend is a bit too daring for your style, go for a ginger brown hue like Andrea's. It's more laid back but just as pretty!
