How to Get Burgundy Brown Hair How to Get Burgundy Brown Hair How to Get Burgundy Brown Hair

If you’re thinking about doing something different with your hair, why not go burgundy brown? The color isn’t just delightful for the alliteration in its name—it’s an eye-catching shade that’s not too bold, so it’s an awesome choice if you don’t want to take a huge risk but still want to change things up. Blending in a vibrant deep red puts the perfect twist on an otherwise boring brunette hue. If we’ve piqued your interest, find all the details on obtaining (and caring for) burgundy brown hair, below.

Decide If Burgundy Brown Hair Is Right for You

It’s normal to worry that a new hue may not work for you, but don’t let that keep you from getting daring with dyeing. No matter your skin tone, there’s a version of burgundy brown that can look gorgeous on you. If your pale skin is seemingly porcelain, this shade will be striking and dramatic, whereas on medium and dark skin tones the color will seem subtle.

For those of you with cool undertones, stick to a burgundy that has a slight violet hue. The purple tone will pair nicely with the blue that shines through skin with cool undertones. To complement warm undertones, opt for a burgundy with hints of true red.

Your current hair color can also play into your decision to dye. Brunettes and dark redheads may love burgundy brown hair because it’s an easy change. If you’re looking for something different that’s not too out there, burgundy brown is a simple way to mix things up. For blondes wanting to give burgundy brown a shot, be prepared to commit to a more dramatic change.

Choose a Colorist or Attempt to DIY

The eternal question: Should you seek out a professional or try it at home? When it comes to dyeing hair a new color, these are the two options. Give your choice some serious thought, as it can play a major role in how well your color turns out.

Going to a salon and working with a professional colorist can help ensure you achieve that just right color. Show up with images of the exact shade you think will be right for you, and a pro will be able to help get you there. If you’d rather go at it solo, try the L’Oréal Paris Féria Deep Burgundy Brown for a bold prismatic color.

Take Care of Your Burgundy Brown Hair Color

Color-treated hair needs additional attention and different products. No worries—a little extra care is totally worth it for a cool new color, right? Swap out your old standbys for these products designed for color-treated hair.

Shampoo, conditioner, and mask: Use a system that’s designed for dyed hair like the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Ultra Recovery Mask.

Heat protectant: Excessive heat styling can lead to damage—so apply a heat protectant before blow-drying. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray, which offers lasting volume and heat protection.

Mousse: Give your hair a break from the heat tools from time to time. Embrace your natural texture with mousse. Apply an egg-sized dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to wet hair, flip your head over to scrunch your hair, then let your hair air dry.

Hairspray: Yes, you may even want to change your hairspray! When styling your hair, switch to using the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold with UV filter for Color-Treated Hair. Spray it in short bursts from about 12 inches away.
