Burgundy Hair Color Ideas That Will Elevate Your Look

Want a mid-year makeover? Try these rich and sophisticated wine shades!

Burgundy hair color is a deep red hue with tinges of purple and brown thrown in. It takes inspiration from the color of red wine from the Burgundy region of France. This deep, rich hue is bold but not loud. It’s elegant and sophisticated. 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 dark hair color without bleach to spare your strands from extreme damage. Burgundy 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.

Burgundy hair color comes in different shades to suit various skin tones. Some shades have more red and violet, and these are flattering for those with cooler undertones. Meanwhile, burgundy hues that appear more brown flatter those with warm, golden undertones like morenas. 

We’ve rounded up various burgundy hair options for you. Check them out below.
