23 Burgundy Hair Colors To Shake Up Your Winter Blues
Shades of red are without a doubt having a moment, but burgundy hair color is the coolest, boldest take on the trend. Not for the faint of heart, it takes everything that makes red great—eye catching, flattering, and unique—and dials it up to 100. It has a slight ‘90s vibe—another of-the-moment trend—but thanks to the recent uptick in red shades, feels totally current. And if even the brightest of coppers feels too natural to you, burgundy is a guaranteed way to stand out from the crowd.
Even though it is technically a specific color—unlike red, which can refer to a wide range—there are still tons of takes on burgundy. The easiest? Consider trying a gloss, especially if you’re on the fence about the shade. “I like glosses for everyone, but mostly for people who don’t want to, or aren’t quite ready to, fully commit,” says celebrity colorist and owner of Jenna Perry Hair, Jenna Perry. “Glosses are not permanent, there is no damage to the hair, and they add shine and depth. It’s also good for in-between coloring and for refreshes—it stretches the longevity.”
From a subtle tint to full-on saturation, or somewhere in between like a cool ombré, there’s whole lotta ways to rock the trend—we rounded up 23 of them to be exact. Scroll on for the coolest burgundy hair colors to try right now, for all hair types and textures.
