If you’re aiming for a beauty look that oozes confidence, it’s safe to say you should incorporate a bit of red into the mix. And while red lipstick and red eye makeup are two trendy ways to add red to your makeup look, we’re here to talk about adding a red hue to your strands. As it turns out, maroon hair colors are popping up all across our social media feeds, and we can’t get enough of them. If you want to try a maroon mane for yourself, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re detailing everything you need to know about the maroon hair trend, including how to use a stunning dark maroon hair dye to DIY the look at home.
Maroon hair can be classified as a dark reddish-purple hue. There are a few variations of maroon hair to choose from, from true maroon to extra dark maroon hair. Each shade features notes of red and purple to create an overall stunning hue.
If you want to get a maroon hair color for yourself, be sure to stock up on plenty of inspiration pictures before heading to the salon. Since there are multiple variations of the shade, it’s important to give your colorist a clear vision of the end result you have in mind. Keep in mind that if you’re starting with a dark base, you’ll likely need to bleach your strands beforehand, so your maroon hair color appears vibrant and saturated.
Consider yourself more of a DIY gal? Not a problem! Getting a maroon hair color at home is easy—with the help of our at-home maroon hair dye kits, of course. Here are a few options for DIYing the trendy color.
If you want a semi-permanent maroon hair color…try using the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color is Maroon or Burgundy.
If you want a permanent maroon hair color…try using the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Deep Burgundy, Power Reds - Deep Auburn/Red Velvet or Power Violet - Intense Deep Violet.
Once you have a trendy maroon hair color, we have a feeling you’ll be wanting it to last. To maintain your fresh, standout hue, follow the hair care tips below.
First and foremost, you won’t want to use just any shampoo and conditioner on your strands. Rather, you’ll want to use a duo that’s specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Need a rec? The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner are a great option for keeping your maroon hair vibrant.
Additionally, a hair mask formulated for color-treated hair can help take your hair care routine to the next level. A few times a week, swap your conditioner with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Bold, saturated hair colors tend to fade a bit more noticeably in between touch-ups. To avoid a muted, less-than-ideal maroon hair color, invest in a red color-depositing conditioner. Formulated with red pigments, it’ll help to add life to your strands and prolong the time between salon visits.
High temperatures can cause your maroon hair color to fade prematurely. No thanks! When in the shower, be sure to avoid hot temperatures and opt for lukewarm water instead. Additionally, avoid heat styling when possible. When you do reach for hot tools, make sure you spritz on a heat protectant!
Faded maroon hair—or worse, maroon hair with grown-out roots—isn’t the cutest look. To avoid an awkward in-between shade, make sure to schedule routine color maintenance appointments in advance. If you DIYed your color, keep a spare box of maroon hair dye in your bathroom cabinet.
