What Shade is Burgundy Red Wine Color?

Burgundy hair color is a red shade that comes in a range of different color options, these include:

  • Bright Scarlette Burgundy
  • Deep dark burgundy color
  • Mulled red wine burgundy color
  • Black cherry burgundy color
  • Red cherry burgundy color
  • Dark fall burgundy color
  • Red velvet burgundy color
  • Lavender burgundy color
  • Dark purple burgundy color
  • Cool violet burgundy color

With all these shade options available, it’s good to remember a basic rule that the brighter shades will generally come through better on light color hair like blonde or light brown, and the darker and deeper shade tones work well with naturally darker hair.

If you would like to achieve one of the lighter and brighter looks, you will have to strip down the dark tones from your hair with bleach and apply the chosen shade of burgundy. This is best done by an experienced hair stylist as removing the base color and getting the shade right needs some expertise.

Choosing the Best Color For Your Skin Tone

If you’re wondering whether the scarlet color is right for you, it’s time to find out.

It doesn’t matter whether you have fair skin or you’re melanin-rich, there’s a hot red hue for you and it’s going to look fantastic.  

Red Shade Colors for Fair Skin

If you are fair-skinned and wonder which one of the reds is the right for you, here are some options:

All of these colors are natural-looking and perfect for this skin type. They all look very natural and complementary on fair skin.

Light-Medium Skin Color Recommendations

For light-medium and medium skin, you might wanna look at these:

  • Ember
  • Sangria
  • Bright Auburn
  • Burgundy
  • Blood Orange 
  • Pumpkin Spice
  • Cherry Coke

With these fiery hues you’re guaranteed to turn heads. They’re eye-catching and perfect for making a statement. 

Dark Skin Color Recommendations

For our melanin-rich girls we have these intriguing ideas:

  • Copper
  • Auburn
  • Fiery Red
  • Burnt Orange
  • Blackberry
  • Violet Red

These red shades accentuate one’s features perfectly. In the end don’t forget to be brave and experiment with whatever shade you like best.

Burgundy Wine Hair Color Care

Although really pretty, color-treated hair needs just a little more attention if you want your color to last longer. 

  • Maintaining red hair can be difficult as the color tends to fade fast. The key to a good care routine is to use a color-protecting shampoo and conditioner. They protect the color and keep your hair in perfect condition. 
  • Another important thing for your scarlet hair would be to turn the water temperature down when washing your hair. Lukewarm water is perfect for a wash. Hot water may open the hair cuticles and this way the color fades away faster. 
  • Heat protection is also important as heat damages the hair and makes the color fade. Make sure you use heat protection spray before using any hot tools.
