Here’re 50 burgundy hair color ideas for you to think about!

1. Muted Burgundy Wine Hair. Calling all wine lovers! Turn your favorite drink into your favorite hair color and see how many compliments you’ll get in return.

2. Hollywood Glam Burgundy. Talk about a perfect combination of maroon burgundy hair. The light wave at the bottom really makes the red in the maroon stand out.

3. Eggplant Burgundy Bob. Messy waves are a great way to add texture to this edgy color. A deeper purple can look equally great on thick and thin hair with waves.

4. Layered Burgundy Highlights. The well-blended burgundy highlights on black hair accentuate the long layers in this look!

5. Burgundy Curly Lob. Curling the hair adds shine and texture to this cute shoulder length style.

6. Burgundy Red Loose Waves. Step into a redder shade of burgundy for a bold look. You can have ombre with this color or highlights around your whole head – the choice is yours.

7. Mid-Length Burgundy Waves on Dark Hair. Hollywood glam to the next level in this style. Burgundy + Dark hair is EVERYTHING!

8. Scarlet Red Long Layers. Going all in on one bright shade of burgundy is always an exciting choice! Look at that color and how it’s darker at the top for depth.

9. Brightening Burgundy Highlights. A smooth transition from a dark base into a burgundy color is necessary for a professional red wine balayage style. Use a smaller curling iron for the tighter curls on the top layer of your hair and hold it on the iron for about 10 – 15 seconds.

10. Long Burgundy Hair. Look at that length with a gorgeous color – this style can work on all hair types, because long layers and a blow out will make any hair look shiny, voluminous and healthy.

11. Burgundy Highlights. If you aren’t ready to dive into burgundy all the way – try highlights to see how you feel.

12. Burgundy Plum Waves. A subtle plum color is a desired change from the usual go-to highlight colors for brunettes.

13. Intense Burgundy Highlights. If you want a dramatic change to your dark hair – go for an intense shade of burgundy.

14. Maroon Burgundy Ombre. Have a mid-length cut with an edgy plum twist. Let your inner rocker out with a stunning red purple color fade during your next trip to a salon.

15. Long Violet Waves. Violet adds warmth to your skin tone, and waves bring texture and height if your hair is on the thinner side.

20. Sassy Cherry Burgundy Highlights. Love the contrast between the black and burgundy hair!
