Trendy Burgundy Hair Color Shades

You know if there's one hair colour that is always in demand, it is burgundy hair colour. So much so that your salon visit is jinxed if you don’t see someone dyeing their hair burgundy (really!). Its popularity is not surprising though — the reddish-brown hue looks good on everyone and of course, it’s super trendy. The Pantone colour of the year might be peach fuzz but everyone is rocking that burgundy look. Why wouldn’t they? It is also associated with a family of colours — wine, maroon, mahogany… you get the gist. Now, we aren’t saying that this colour won’t fade away like other dark colours, but with a little maintenance, it might end up staying longer than you’d expect. And, can we just talk about the fun, chic element that it adds to your look? We are all fans here!

We know, we know you’re already booking your next salon appointment but before you do that, here’s a guide on which burgundy hair colour would work for you.

Burgundy Hair Colour Shades For Different Skin Tones

Fair Skin Tone

First things first, if you have fair skin, every burgundy hair colour shade will look great on you. Just like blonde, blues and all the other quirky colours out there.
