38 Gorgeous Burgundy Hair Color Shades to Show Your Colorist

Burgundy hair colors

A burgundy hair color is a blend of brown and purple that create a deep burgundy red wine hue. Like a fine wine, deep merlot, cabernet, oxblood and bordeaux hair color hues shimmer at the slightest hint of light.

The bold tones of a beautiful burgundy offer wonderful framing and contrast for every skin tone. These hues are great for the shy girl who desires a striking change or the carefree spirit who just loves attention. This versatile shade is waiting for you.

Below are some of the most gorgeous examples of burgundy hair color ideas for your inspiration!

Q&A with Creator, Tracy Branch
National Educator for John Paul Mitchell Systems & Co-Owner of The Glossary Salon Florence, MS

How would you describe this?

My favorite thing about this red/violet/burgundy wine hair color is how the tones really become vibrant in natural lighting. The color is deep and professional, but when you see in the natural light, it really pops!

Any product recommendations?

The products I would recommend are the Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair System. I love their shampoo, conditioner, and the Triple Rescue Thermal Protection Spray that is infused with quinoa. It keeps your color vibrant and prevents fading for up to nine weeks!

Any tips?

To maintain the vibrant burgundy tones of this color, I recommend coming in for a gloss or topcoats using Paul Mitchell PopXG Burgundy every four weeks and touching up the new growth every six to eight weeks. Thermal protection is a must, as well as washing with color-safe and sulfate-free products like Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair System.

Pinot Noir with Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Becky Stout
Hairstylist @ House of Color in Colorado Springs, CO


How would you describe this look?

The first thing that I see is a wonderful bottle of wine, maybe Pinot noir. Believe it or not, she came in with long blonde hair and we figured that she would look better with a burgundy bob haircut. Then I also gave her really nice full bangs to make her beautiful blue eyes pop. I used Alfaparf, which is an Italian Color line.

Any advice for someone considering it?

She wanted a dramatic change. I let her know that these colors do fade but this specific color line allows it to fade to a beautiful mauve color. It was great even faded however, to make it fade like that, the client would have to be already blonde underneath. It couldn’t be achieved going over darker hair. She was a client that would upkeep it by not washing every day, using dry shampoo for in-between days, and curling her hair daily to achieve this desired look. It also looks very good straight or slightly wavy as well.

Q&A with creator, Andrea Rojas
Hairstylist @ Be Scene Studios in Rockville, MD


How would you describe this look?

This look is very easy and breezy. The depth of the color allows for a nice fade out since reds fade quickly. I always like to take my clients a shade or two darker than what they wanted. The slightly angled cut gives an edgy feel without overdoing it.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Though the color is dark, reds do fade quickly, so I definitely only recommend reds to a client who can be in the salon every 6-8 weeks to refresh her toner. I think anyone can pull a red hair color off as long as they can continue with the upkeep.

Purple Burgundy Balayage

Q&A with style creator, Rose Garcia
Hairstylist / Color Specialist @ Rose’s Hair Studio in Austin, TX


How would you describe this look?

This shade of purple burgundy red balayage is perfect for a fun, bold, adventurous person.

My favorite thing about this look is that it has 1 inch of her natural hair growth left out for a soft easy grow out and swirls of purple pink and burgundy throughout, leaving the end result after fading a beautiful burgundy pink mauve.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Any hair type and face shape can have this style and color. It’s warm yet cool, making it suitable for many skin tones. The pink violet tones are flirty and fun and the cut creates fullness and bounce.

This color requires a lot of maintenance. Use lukewarm to cool water when washing. I recommended a sulfate free shampoo, alternating with a red color depositing shampoo or conditioner to keep the color vivid until your next appointment. Shampooing about 2 times a week would be ideal. Re-toning would be about every 6-8 weeks.

Dark Burgundy Pixie Cut

Q&A with style creator, Emily Tee
Senior Hairstylist @ Shawn Cutler in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


How would you describe this look?

This burgundy brown hair color is the look of today’s balayage! These days, you will see people wearing these “fun” or “fashion” tones. Instead of doing the entire head which is very high maintenance, you can overlay a color onto highlights or a balayage for a softer, more wearable look. It looks natural which is good for the working professions. This tone shade is suitable for long hair and will help the customers to look sharp and fresh.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The best way to maintain this color is to use recommended color shampoo and conditioner at home. The right shampoo and conditioner will enable to help to enhance the color and also give a long lasting on the hair condition.

Dark Burgundy Red

Q&A with style creator, Nicole Bright
Freelance Hair & Makeup Artist in Tauranga, New Zealand


How would you describe this look?

In the sunshine, it looks glossy and vibrant, while in the shade, it is rich and luxurious. I personally love this color. It is one of my all time favorites, as it is tasteful yet it demands your attention.

I created this dark cranberry color tone using the Wella color range. I custom mix it each time to suit the condition of my client’s hair as well as factor in which season it is so I can reduce fading.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a great color for someone who wants to “spice it up”. It’s a color that can be pulled off whether you are introverted or extroverted, in a serious role at work, or somewhere you can let your creativity run wild. As long as you style your hair appropriately, this tone shouldn’t be offensive.

Any red, copper, or berry tone is generally high maintenance as bright colors tend to fade more noticeably than natural tones. Roots can also look to appear sooner than usual with naturally lighter clients. I would expect to see you back in my chair every 4-6 weeks for maintenance.

You may get a longer-lasting color by using the appropriate hair care. I recommended my clients use a good quality shampoo for colored hair as well as a red/purple toning conditioner. If you often use hot tools on your hair you will also need a heat protector or this will also break down the cuticle allowing the color to fade faster.

The undertone in this photo is a blue/violet base, making it a cool red. Not every client needs to be fiery and warm. To get the right tone for you, the best way to check is to look at the jewelry you wear. If you suit gold jewelry you most probably would look best with a warmer base and silver for a cold base. If you are lucky you may suit both.

Q&A with creator, Rachel Yancey
Master Stylist / Hair Extension Specialist @ Bold City Hair in Jacksonville, FL


How would you describe this look?

I call it a raspberry bliss! I love that it is still dimensional, instead of a solid color, with different shades of raspberry tones. We used a darker color at her root and some pieces throughout for dimension to our raspberry base.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Consider using professional products to help prolong the life of the color because these vibrant colors can fade much faster than any natural color.

I would also have them consider their lifestyle. How often do they shampoo their hair each week, or do they swim a lot? Those would be things that would contribute to faster fading.

Burgunday + Mahogany Blend

Q&A with creator, Tasha Kummer
Master Colorist @ Mane Tamers Salon in Greenville, SC


How would you describe this look?

This look has the ultimate dimension with shades of red, brown, and bursts of violet all blended together to give it a great mahogany tone with burgundy lowlights. We went in with some honey pieces to keep it bright and summer-worthy. The mahogany mixed with honey really complement each other.

I then added some long layers with a few medium layers through the top to keep it light and really show off the dimension that greatly brings the hair lots of movement. I finished with a 1-inch wand loosely wound to give it a beach wave look.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Maintenance for this color is very important. When a color has red in it, you have to schedule your appointments every 6-8 weeks. Use a shampoo that is salt free and sulphate free that is good for the hair color used. It’s best to use a shampoo that your stylist recommends.

This client alternates between Pravana shampoo and Purelogy shampoo. Both of those are great for the hair and excellent for your color. You will also need to think about getting an over all leave in conditioner to keep the hair at it’s optimum health as well as a thermal protectant to use with any heat tool you want to use. This client uses the Pravana Nevo Intense therapy spray and Redkens thermal spray.

How would you describe this?

This is a rich, dark cherry burgundy shade that fades into a neon tangerine orange at the tips. The vibrancy is definitely my favorite part of this look.

Any product recommendations?

I’d recommend using a red and orange color wash at home to replenish the hair color.

Who’s this ideal for?

I think red/burgundy/warm tones are so versatile! A woman with a lighter or a tan complexion can pull this color off, which means all types of hair can wear it as well.

Any tips for this look?

When it comes to maintaining hair color (especially fashion colors like this), there are many factors that go into the upkeep that I send all of my clients home with. Not washing your hair every day (and washing with cold water when you do) and using dry shampoo plays a huge role in color maintenance! Leaving the hair’s natural oils is healthy and washing with cold water prevents the color from washing out so quickly.

Deep Burgundy Red Highlights with Cool Undertones

Style by Abbie Adams
Hairstylist @ KC Stylist Studio in Pasadena, CA


How would you describe this?

This is a deep burgundy hair color with cooler undertones. It’s not warm like your auburns or traditional reds. My favorite thing about this look is the violet undertones that contribute to its depth. When you use cooler undertones, everything seems deeper and richer.

Who’s this ideal for?

There is an even balance of warmth and coolness that makes this shade of red complementary to any skin tone. Those with fine hair would benefit from this style. The depth of the color creates a fuller look as well as the alternating waves.

Any tips for this look?

To recreate this look, I would suggest asking your stylist for a cool red so that you don’t get too bright of a result. The key factor of this look is the depth of the burgundy. In order to recreate it, you need these undertones.

How would you describe this cut and color and what’s your favorite thing about it?

This is a chocolate spice inspired long bob. My favorite thing about it is the richness of the burgundy hue.

Which products would you recommend to help create and maintain this look?

I prepped the hair with Kenra Blowout Spray before drying, then used Kenra 8 Thermal Spray before curling each section. I set and finished the look with Kenra Volume Spray 25.<

Any tips

This look is ideal for anyone who wants to liven up and enrich their dark locks. The cut and style are perfect for anyone who wants to be able to put their hair up in a bun or ponytail, but still have the ease of styling shorter hair.

After the salon, taking care of such a color can be as easy as one, two, three nowadays. Keep some purple shampoo (and other products) with you, go in for regular touch-ups, and enjoy the color!

Q&A with Creator, Dessiree Gonzalez

Senior Hairstylist @ Radiance Lifestyle Salon & Spa


How would you describe this?

This is a modern take on burgundy hair color. The rich burgundy base is a classic color that to this day is still edgy. I love the electric purple highlights, which not only add dimension but really make the overall color feel fresh and trendy while still appealing to those wanting a “natural-ish” look.

Any product recommendations?

I would recommend a color protecting shampoo and conditioner. In addition, I’d recommend Overtone Vibrant Red Daily Conditioner which deposits red tones into the hair. A leave-in conditioner is a must for everyone and especially those who color their hair. The brands I recommend are Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients. Both are natural and certified organic.

Who’s this ideal for?

Burgundy is a cooler red, meaning it has some violet in it, and the highlights are cool toned yet really pop. Cool skin, those with green or blue undertones, and natural brunettes/black haired people look best in this shade. Darker complexions like that of African Americans, Indians, and Latinas pull off this shade well too. Any hair type can pull off this color. I personally think curled hair, whether naturally curly or curled with an iron, looks best because the colors enhance the texture of the hair.

Q&A with Creator, Taylor Hatley

Owner/Stylist @ Hair Unlimited Beauty Saloon in Albemarle, NC


How would you describe this?

This is a subtle burgundy highlights on black dair. My favorite thing about it is how easy the fade moves from a dark brown hair color to deep dark burgundy!

Any product recommendations?

The products I used for the color were all Paul Mitchel. I used the XG line for the color and the Awapuhi Wild Ginger styling products. I also recommend a 1¼-inch barrel curling iron to create these waves. For the finished look, finger comb the curls out and spray with any texture spray to give it a tousled look.

Who’s this ideal for?

The client that I did this look on had fair skin, but a natural level 6½ hair. I think if she had a lighter natural level it may have washed her out. Olive skin tones look great in this color too! This color looks great on any length but looks better on thicker hair.

Any tips?

For recreating the color, pre-lighten if you want a more vivid outcome and overlap the root color and the burgundy shade. And my main tip for maintaining any red is to shampoo with cool water and cut back shampooing to only a few times a week.

Hairstylist @ Suite 140 Salon in Montgomery, AL


How would you describe this?

This burgundy balayage hair is rich in color and adds a fun pop of color to her dark base.

Any product recommendations?

Since red and burgundy shades tend to fade quickly, I would suggest using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner (like Redken Color Magnetics) along with washing in cooler water to help with longevity. A good heat protectant like Kenra’s Hot Spray is a must to protect the color from fading due to heat.

Who’s this ideal for?

Burgundy hues always looks great next to cooler skin types, but can really be worn by anyone.

Any tips?

Make sure to pick a nice violet red color to recreate the burgundy tone, and always use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to help with the longevity of the color.

Hairstylist @ Salon Bordeaux in San Diego, CA


How would you describe this?

My favorite thing about this look is the subtly of the burgundy and how it blends into her naturally dark hair. It’s a nice, dark burgundy wine colored balayage that works great on her.

Any product recommendations?

I recommend Outshine by Redken before you blow dry and a little bit after. It’s the perfect product to defrizz and it adds just the right amount of shine. I also like to put a violet toning conditioner on all my wine-haired babes. I leave it on for about five minutes. I like how the violet brings out the purple tones in the color. For that, I definitely recommend Blonde Angel by Kevin Murphy. It’s the best!

Who’s this ideal for?

A burgundy color works well as a balayage on darker hair. As an all over root to end burgundy, I think that it looks best on ladies with warmer skin tones. It complements the skin so well it’s like your constantly glowing.

Any tips?

Try the violet conditioner on a dark red hair color and you’ll be surprised at how pretty the results are. Red is famous for fading the fastest, so see your stylist to refresh the color.

How would you describe this?

It’s a burgundy A-line bob. I love the easy wearability of the style and all the dimensions in the color.

Any product recommendations?

I recommend a medium hold mousse like Glamour Whip by Goldwell to blow dry, then finish off with a light hold hairspray like Magic Finish by Goldwell so it still has movement. I also love Goldwell’s Diamond Gloss shine spray to really polish off the look.

Any tips?

Keep up with your root touch-ups and try an all over semi-permanent gloss to keep the richness of the color. You’ll also want to use a good shampoo and conditioner like Kerasilk Color by Goldwell, as well as a hair serum like Kerasilk Protective Oil by Goldwell to use after towel drying.

How would you describe this?

This burgundy hair haircut is classy and sultry at the same time, like a glass of fine wine. It’s rich, deep, and when lighting hits (especially sunlight) it’s suddenly vibrant and enticing. My favorite thing about this look is the way the color screams depth and vibrancy. It’s sexy!

Any product recommendations?

For all colored hair, I would recommend a color-safe shampoo and conditioner. I love Oribe’s Beautiful Color line. It helps to keep your color vibrant and prevent fading. Some clients may also use a red depositing shampoo from time to time, but if the color has faded out too much, it may be time for a glaze!

Who’s this ideal for?

I personally love this color and style on just about everyone. It makes girls with lighter eyes really pop and adds a really exotic look. But my favorite would have to be on my medium to dark skin toned girls with dark features.

Any tips?

My tips to you for recreating this color is stick to your RV! (Redviolets). Make sure you use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner and come in every 8-12 weeks for an in-the-bowl glaze or root touch up as needed!

Dark to Light Burgundy Ombre

Hairstylist in Queens, NY


How would you describe this?

This is a burgundy ombre that gives colorful contrast to your everyday brunette that is sure to make a statement. My favorite thing about this look that it is unexpected. I’m in love with the reddish-brown violet undertones that make it sophisticated and super stylish.

Any product recommendations?

I recommend a color-protecting shampoo and conditioner for all color-treated hair. Get a color depositing shampoo and conditioner for redheads and to use once a week to add pigment and help maintain the vibrancy of your color. I would also recommend UV protective styling balm or thermal protection spray to prevent color from fading in the sun, while also protecting it from the heat and keeping your hair nice and healthy.

Who’s this ideal for?

The great thing about this hair color is that any tone can pull it off from. If you have acne-prone skin or have a lot of red pigmentation, I would stay away from being a redhead altogether because red hair color could enhance the redness in your skin. In that case, you would want to go for more of a neutral/cooler hair color.

Any tips?

Burgundy can be a hard color to maintain. After your appointment, buy a color depositing shampoo and conditioner for redheads. This will help prevent your color from fading while keeping it vibrant between salon visits.

Q&A with Creator, Erin Shimkin

Owner of Artistry by Erin Rachel in Suffern, NY


How would you describe this?

This is a smokey merlot. My favorite thing about this look is that it is relatively low maintenance as far as the color upkeep. It is a great way to play around with some brighter pops of color while still maintaining a natural-looking root! I also love styling the hair in loose, messy waves. The style looks better the messier it gets, so you can just spray in some dry shampoo and go!

Any product recommendations?

To maintain dark burgundy colors, I love the Celeb Luxury line of color washes. It is a highly pigmented shampoo that I tell my clients to use once a week in order to prevent fading. For a regular shampoo/conditioner, I swear by the Framesi Color Lover line. It is sulfate-free, which is super important in maintaining color because sulfates are too harsh and pull the color out quicker.

Who’s this ideal for?

My client in the photo is fair with an olive undertone, but I honestly feel that cool undertones and darker toned skin can also pull off a merlot color. 

Any tips?

Balayage or hand paint the hair and process it to a level 7/8. Melt a dark brown color from the root to about the tip of the ear. Rinse, Olaplaex, and blow dry. Apply Wella Colortouch 1and1/2 oz. of 6/45 with 1/2oz of 44/65 and a ribbon of /68 and 6 volume processing solution. Process for 20-25 minutes, rinse, Olaplaex again, cut in long interior layers, and blow dry!

To maintain the color I recommend only washing the hair two to three times a week, use a sulfate-free shampoo and/or a color depositing shampoo once a week. Rinse with cold water.

How would you describe this?

This look is a beautiful purple with red undertones that is deeper at the roots and dimensional through the ends from her previous blonde. My favorite thing about this look is how fun and different it is while still being very wearable.

Any product recommendations?

I recommend Biolage Color Care shampoo and conditioner to preserve the color as long as possible. To style, I use Moroccan oil to protect from heat damage, smooth the hair, and add shine before I blow dry. I also like to use a 1 1/4-inch curling iron to style, then I finish with a texture spray.

How would you describe this?

There are beach waves on a slight A-line bob with a short burgundy hair balayage. My favorite thing about this look is how multidimensional this maroon hair inspired color is and how the color itself makes the hair look textured.

Any product recommendations?

When styling, I used Mythic Oil for shine and softness and layered IGK’s Car Service Blowout Balm for smoothness. I round brushed and twisted each section into beachy waves using small round brush, then finished look off with IGK’s Beach Club Texture spray for piecey separation and texture at roots.

Hairstylist in Los Angeles, CA


How would you describe this?

This is a fun and bold transition from natural virgin hair to a vibrant, cool base burgundy. I love the versatility of this look.

Any product recommendations?

The products I used were, Blondor Powder Bleach by Wella and L’Oréal Hair Color in cherry and deep red. To lighten the hair I used a 30 vol developer and a balayage technique. Then I applied the L’Oréal Hair Color with a 20 vol developer.

Who’s this ideal for?

All skin tones can pull off this color and style, however, olive or yellow undertone can complement the look well.

Any tips?

Use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners and always wash with cool or lukewarm water. Use a leave-in conditioner, too! It’s also very important to apply a heat protectant before doing any and all heat styling.

Q&A with Creator, Michelle Hsiung
Hairstylist @ Cristophe Salon in Beverly Hills, CA


How would you describe this?

I described this look as “Bordeaux for Your Hair”. It’s a rich and dimensional look with tons of warm burgundy hues. What I love most about this look is that it’s subtle yet has so much contrast! It’s perfect for the women who want some pop, but nothing too extreme. When in inside lighting or in more shady areas, it’s deeper warm hickory. Once outside when the light hits your hair, it’s shiny and vibrant!

Any product recommendations?

The products I used for this look were from Schwarzkopft. I used the Igora Royal line on her roots and the Vibrance line on her ends since those were already pre-lightened. I used the Hot Tools 1-inch ceramic curling iron, breaking up the curls with Schwarzkopft Osis Styling cream on my hands, and finished off with Osis Number 2 Freeze Spray.

Who’s this ideal for?

I honestly think this color compliments ladies with fairer skin as well as ladies with warmer skin color. This is such a versatile color to work with! There are so many different shades of burgundy to choose from, and all can be customized just right for you!

Any tips?

I always recommend using a sulfate-free shampoo for any color-treated hair. My personal favorites are either the Rene Furterer Okara line or the Schwarzkopft Color Freeze. Keep up with maintenance by coming in for a gloss to freshen up the color and keep a vibrant and shiny look!

Hairstylist @ Cooper&Strop Hair Parlor in Apple Valley,CA


How would you describe this?

I would describe this burgundy hue as fun and fearless! What I love most about this look is that it’s fun and confident, but not too bold. Women with jobs who aren’t allowed to have fashion colors can still express themselves through their hair with this look.

Any product recommendations?

I would recommend a color-safe and sulfate-free shampoo to keep these locks fresh, healthy and well maintained!

Who’s this ideal for?

Olive and tan completions go great with this tone of color. Women with naturally dark hair rock this color well because in most cases they already have lots of underlying red pigment. This means that as a colorist we’re not having to fight with their natural tones when lifting. It just enhances their natural beauty!

Any tips?

Seeing your colorist for touch-ups is most important to maintain, along with good products used at home. I love Enjo’ys shine and smooth spray to create a sleek and flawless look.
