Burgundy Hair Color: 10 Gorgeous Wine Shades to Try in 2023

Prep for the new year by getting this rich, deep hue! Here are different shades you can try.

Burgundy hair color is characterized by a deep red hue with tinges of purple and brown thrown in. It’s like a sophisticated, red wine color—only it’s on your hair. And if you want to try red hair but are not keen on fiery red shades, burgundy color is a good choice.

You can also get this rich, dark hair color without bleach and spare your strands from extreme damage. This wine shade also blends well with naturally dark hair, so you can combine this color with shadow roots or wear it as highlights on your black hair.

Now that we’re in the last two months of the year, you might also be looking for ways to welcome the new year with a new look. Consider burgundy color for your makeover. We’ve rounded up different shades to help you choose the best one for you. Check them out below.

With this hair color, burgundy is combined with a shade of brown. You can start with burgundy color at the top then let it seamlessly transition to brown tips.

Editor’s Tip: When you color your hair, fading is one of the biggest challenges you need to deal with. Use a shampoo that’s proven to prevent fading like TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo. Its color radiance booster creates a waterproof film that coats and binds to the hair fibers. This film protects the hair surface and locks the color inside each strand. The result? Colored hair that lasts up to twice longer!

To get the best result, pair TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo with TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Conditioner

2. Cabernet

3. Merlot

It’s darker and deeper than cabernet but it’s just as chic. It also blends well with naturally dark hair, so you can wear merlot as highlights or you can leave your roots untouched while dyeing the rest of your hair with this burgundy color.

Editor’s tip: Coloring your hair can cause hair damage, especially when you do it often. Keep damage under control by using Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has keratin-infused serum capsules that go deep into your hair to repair damage from within. It leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and resilient to future damage in just one minute. 

4. Dark Garnet Hair with Bangs

This burgundy color has more tinges of red than brown and purplish hues. It adds warmth to your skin. To let this color frame your face, add wispy bangs. The result is a chic and relaxed look that you can wear even when working from home.

Editor’s tip: If you want to include a keratin-rich conditioner in your hair care routine, try Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive Ultra Conditioner. It helps keep your colored hair from getting dry and dull, thanks to its keratin essence. It also has keratin serum to revive damaged hair and keratin relaxers to tame frizz, leaving your colored hair beautiful. 

5. Cordovan
