Turn Heads With Dark Wine Hair Color: 30+ Gorgeous Ideas

Dark wine hair color is one of the dreamiest color options you can opt for – if you’re looking to update your look with this pretty shade, you’re at the right place!

In this article, we have curated a collection of over 30 prettiest dark wine hair color ideas that will work on any complexion or hair length. Whether you need something with layers, highlights or deep tones of dark red wine, you will find plenty of inspiration in this article.

Why Dark Wine Hair Color?

Dark wine hair color is an easy color choice for almost anyone – it goes well with light or darker skin tones and you can easily add a lot of depth to it by using a number of shades.

It’s a color that works well in all seasons – in the summer the sun will bring the color to life, and in winter months it creates a nice contrast with your skin and adds depth to your appearance.

This hair color looks especially fabulous on longer hair, but you can definitely make the best of it even with shorter hair.

If you have natural color hair, you can opt for almost any shade of dark wine hair color. If you’re transitioning from dark or black hair, you will need a bit of help in stripping the original color first, to ensure that the wine red comes through. If you’re starting with blonde hair, you also have more freedom to customize how dark you want to go with this shade.

30+ Best Shades for Dark Wine Hair Color

Are you ready to pick your favorite shades? Bear in mind that the color you see in the photos depends on the original base color and what coloring technique is used. Make sure you consult with your hair stylist to get exactly the results you want.

The Best Red Color Ideas 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.  

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.

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

  • Ember
  • Sangria
  • Bright Auburn
  • 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. 

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.

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.
