20+ Burgundy Hair Color Ideas: Hairstyles & Shades of the Year
With Fall well underway and Winter just around the corner, there are some luscious Autumn hairstyles popping up all over, with one color in particular making waves. Burgundy hair is always an eye-catching choice and can be war and rich, edgy, or just plain fun. Darker burgundy hair is sexy and adventurous, indulgent like the wine it’s named for. However, lighter dyes, highlights, and accent colors make it a versatile and unique option for women of every size, color, and fashion point of view. Shades can range from playful purples to decadent deep reds, but this season also has some surprising trends in store that will make it hard to decide – not just which to try, but which one to try first!
1. Bonjour, Burgundy!
This sable burgundy with bright highlights is perfect for Fall, setting off any outfit and sure to shine in the light of a beach bonfire. This is an easy transition for a brunette looking to add some color to their dark tresses, or for those with lighter hair who are ready to switch to the dark side while standing out from the crowd.
2. Burgundy Mermaid
This dark twist on the popular mermaid hair style is probably already making your mouth water. If you thought the ombre was only for blondes, think again, because this burgundy-to-teal-and-purple color-melt masterpiece proves that redheads really have the most fun.
3. Falling for Fuchsia
This all-over perfect dye job is a bold and beautiful statement for those ready to take their color game to the next level. A lively shade of burgundy that’s bordering on fuchsia, the color really pops and would complement both fair and olive skin tones.
4. Sweet Dreams
#Gorgeouslocks is right! This burgundy-and-violet blue dream is like a cotton candy and bubblegum swirl – if bubblegum were burgundy, that is. If you’re a bit of a wild child at heart, drink unicorn frappes just for the rainbows, or want to take the starry night sky with you wherever you go, this color wonder is probably for you.
5. Candy Apple
Classy and elegant, this burgundy is closer to a candy-apple red. Highlights and lowlights create a warm glow, with just the hint of darker roots for contrast. A beautiful way for any fashionista to step into the season.
