Global bright burgundy
If you are in the mood for some serious hair experiment or makeover, then you must definitely consider getting this burgundy hair colour. 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 hairdo, use the Tresemme Pro Protect Sulphate Free Shampoo and Conditioner. If colouring dries your hair, this sulphate and paraben-free combo make sure that it is gentle on your tresses. It is also made keeping coloured hair in mind, which is why it uses Morocco’s liquid gold -- argan oil to make sure your hair colour lasts as long as possible. Get soft and smooth hair while also sporting your burgundy look at the same time.

This is the perfect hair colour for those of you looking to keep things natural but still want that added oomph. Ideal for all Indian skin tones, this subtle hair colour 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 colour to shine through. After every hair wash, apply a few drops of the Tresemme Pro Pure Moisture Boost Hair Serum to damp hair from mid-lengths to the ends. While it is paraben-free, it uses aloe vera, coconut oil and sunflower seed oil to tame your frizz and give your hair a salon-like finish.

It offers a quick way to brighten up your complexion and add a fun, youthful element to your look without looking too punk. We love how transitional this colour looks and the best part is that the neutral shade looks great on both warm and cool-toned skin.

Why pick one shade when you can pick two (or even three)? Choose a shade of red, a lighter shade of your original hair colour and coral to dye your tresses. Believe us, a mix of red, coral and brown highlights look oh-so-stunning.
FAQs about burgundy hair colour trend
Q. Which burgundy colour suits which skin tone?
Cooler burgundy with hints of purple look 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 hair shades that are more on the sides of red and brown.
Q. What colour does burgundy fade to?
Good news – since you don’t have to bleach your hair, burgundy doesn’t fade into a lighter colour. It will mostly fade to a deep violet or a purple hue.
Q. 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 of bleaching 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 colour trend now.
