If you are in the mood for some serious hair experiment or makeover, then you must definitely consider getting this light burgundy hair color. The bright global look with red undertones works really well on Indian skin tones and is a great way to make your hair stand out.  

And if you are worried about it fading too soon, we’ve got you on that front too. To maintain your hairstyle, use the TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Shampoo and Conditioner. If coloring dries your hair, this sulphate and paraben-free combo makes sure that it is gentle on your tresses. It is also made keeping colored hair in mind, which is why it uses Morocco’s liquid gold -- argan oil to make sure your hair color lasts as long as possible. Get soft and smooth hair while also sporting your burgundy color at the same time.

Looking for an understated yet glamorous hair color option that would also work beautifully on mature women? Well, look no further than this dark burgundy hair color! We love the subtle burgundy highlights paired with a global warm-toned chocolate brown color to exude sophistication and understated confidence.  


3. Black Cherry Highlights

This is the perfect hair color for those of you looking to keep things natural but still want that added oomph. Ideal for all Indian skin tones, this subtle hair color would look super striking under natural sunlight and make you look ethereal.  

Pro tip - For those cherry-tinted strands to shine, coat them with a hair serum. The drier your hair, the rougher it will look with fewer chances for your favourite color to shine through. After every hair wash, apply a few drops of the TRESemmé Moisture Boost Hair Serum With Hyaluronic Acid to damp hair from mid-lengths to the ends. While it is paraben-free, it uses the water-retaining hyaluronic acid to keep your dyed tresses hydrated and soft to give your hair a salon-like finish.  


4. Deep Burgundy Balayage Hair Color

We love how transitional this color looks and the best part is that the neutral shade looks great on both warm and cool-toned skin.

FAQs about Burgundy Hair Color Trend   

Q1. Which burgundy color suits which skin tone?  

Cooler burgundy with hints of purple looks good on those skin tones that have cooler undertones like a pinkish hue. If you have warmer undertones like deep peach or yellow, go for warmer burgundy color shades that are more on the sides of red and brown.  

Q2. What color does burgundy fade to?  

Good news – since you don’t have to bleach your hair, burgundy doesn’t fade into a lighter color. It will mostly fade to a deep violet or a reddish hue.  

Q3. Does burgundy hair need bleach?  

Pre-lightening your hair depends on the shade you want. Most burgundy shades work on dark hair without the need to bleach it. But if you want a bright burgundy almost bordering on red or pink, you may need to bleach your hair.  

There you have it! If you want to experiment with your hair but are scared of how it will look, jump on the burgundy hair color trend now.
