As you probably know by now, we love natural hair in all its forms. So if you prefer to have you afro strands out and proud, then what better way to jazz things up a little than with a gorgeous mulled wine hair hue?

Even if your afro is naturally brown, the warm, berry-red tones can easily revive your dark base, and is sure to add plenty of depth and definition to your look. Come on, girls, let’s make those curls pop! Credit: @joyadenuga
