What Skin Tone Is Best for Burgundy Hair?


A universal rule: cold skin tone – cold hair pigment. Burgundy, like most mixed hues, stylists refer to complex colours. Burgundy tint does not suit many. It is often not on friendly terms with the skin tone, eye colour, and hair of their owner. So, you should obviously entrust to a professional colorist in this matter – and you won’t go wrong.

Top 13 Brightest Steampunk Hairstyles to Look Classy and Awesome


The steampunk hairstyles are one of the most interesting and experimental moments in creating an image. Wigs, overhead strands, coloring, colored accents, a wide variety of colors from bright red to turquoise – all these details help to complement your image. The steampunk look is more suitable for costume photoshoots and events than for everyday wear. However, no one will be surprised if some of its elements are introduced into the casual style in the coming years.


Brightness and Boldness of Burgundy Hair Color


All the possible shades and tints of burgundy hair color are bright, attracting, daring, and original. They look very impressive, but there are several subtleties when dying your hair in this pigment. For a winter look, the shades of burgundy and cherry are suitable. For an autumn look, it is better for girls to dye their hair in mahogany.


A pure burgundy color suits both appearances.

For the summer and spring appearance, coloring in burgundy will not work except for ombre burgundy. Blondes should abandon the burgundy – it makes them unnaturally pale. Highlighting with red strands is suitable for brunettes and brown-haired women.

Choosing a hair dye is not an easy decision, indeed. Especially when it is about bright, extraordinary coloring.

The complex union of red and brown can inspire admiration. But how to choose a shade so that it looks harmonious, and does not drown out your image, taking on a leading role?

Burgundy Hair Color Chart

This versatile hue can be very different: cold and warm, light and dark.

It has so many nuances that only a professional colorist can easily find the right shade for almost any appearance!

What Is the Best Burgundy Hair Dye for Dark Hair?

Dark maroon hair, close to very dark brown, is ideal for brunettes. Long dark hair need not be dyed entirely burgundy. However, thin strands of the desired shade will add interesting play to the hairstyle.

Do You Need to Bleach Your Hair to Dye It Burgundy?

Usually, any significant discoloration on such hair requires serious bleaching. If you want to achieve bright burgundy shades on fairly dark hair, then get ready to bleach it.

However, for maroon hair, you don’t have to bleach your hair. Just a slight lightening is enough for the red shades to play on dark curls.

Light Burgundy Hair Color

Light shades of burgundy, almost red, are ideal for fair-skinned girls with green and blue eyes. If the hair is long, these shades look even more luxurious.

Bright Shades

Both burgundy on its own and burgundy hair with highlights, for example, balayage look great. In this case, it is better to choose bright burgundy tones in order to achieve the effect of fiery tips.

Different Lengths of Hair

Hair of different lengths looks splendid with burgundy hair dyeing.

This shade always makes the hair look more voluminous.
Although there are fashion trends for each hair length, it is much more important how the tone matches your appearance.

A short haircut assumes mono-dyeing of hair, it is nearly impossible to play with shades in this case.
A pixie haircut is very daring combined with burgundy dye.


For medium-length haircuts, both one shade and burgundy hair with highlights or ombre burgundy are relevant. Dark roots and light strands look really original.


Long silky strands or curly hair simply have to sparkle and shimmer. The effect is achieved both with different shades and mono-coloring.

3 Ways to Make Curls Last Even if Your Hair is Hard to Curl


We all love the look of loose beach curls, but it can be quite the challenge to create curls that will last all day. Many of us spend hours trying to perfect the technique of curling our hair at home but still struggle to achieve long lasting effect. If you find yourself in the never-ending battle of getting your hair to hold a curl, keep reading to learn more about why this may be a problem and what 3 simple things may just do the trick!

Woman Stressed About Keeping Curls in Her Hair

Why Your Hair Won’t Hold a Curl
There are potentially many reasons why your hair won’t stay curled and addressing them is going half the way to success (or, often, the all of it). Let’s look at them in more detail:

You Don’t Use the Right Products
If this has been a continuing struggle for you, consider what products you are using and how much of them you are using. One of the key factors in making straight strands curly is to properly prep your hair. You need to start with a generous amount of mousse and a heat protectant before you blow-dry your hair to give it more hold. A mousse is an alcohol-based product that makes hair easier to style by removing the moisture and drying your locks a bit, that’s why it is best not to use it too often.

If you plan to curl your hair, skipping a conditioner or using less of it will be a smart move, too. The latter makes hair very smooth, so it’s more difficult to add texture to your strands. If your hair is naturally straight and smooth, shower it with dry shampoo or a texturizing spray to add some grip before curling.

If you’re searching for a way to make your curls stay in fine hair, remember, less is more is guiding rule for fine hair styling. Use products that are light and airy and avoid heavier moisturizing products before curling. If your hair has too much product in it or products that are too heavy, they will weigh your hair down and the curls will fall flat a lot easier. A John Frieda Volume Lift foam for lightweight fullness would be a great option to go for.

Your Heat Tool is Failing You
The tools you use also play a big part in the longevity of your style. That’s why it is so important to make sure you’re using the right one for your hair type. Heat styling tools come in either ceramic or titanium and they both work in different ways. Ceramic styling tools heat up the hair from the inside out and is great on fine hair because it produces a gentler heat. Whereas the titanium styling tools heat the hair on the surface first creating a more aggressive heat, making it better for thick hair.

The right size of the curling iron is another important aspect. Curling iron with a large barrel size will create looser curls, which shape will be barely visible on thick, stubborn hair after a while. If you are having a hard time getting your hair to curl, try going down a barrel size and create tighter curls in the first place.

Waves Different Sizes of Curling Irons Produce

Most curling irons are available in increments of ¼”. Irons that are approximately 1” work best on most hair types. The longer your hair is, the smaller the iron you may want. Long hair will weigh itself down causing the curls to stretch more and will result in flattened curls sooner rather than later.

Also, it is important to select a tool where you’ll be in control of a temperature. It is not necessary to fry your hair to get bouncy curls. In fact, a lower temperate of 300-350 degrees create longer-lasting results. However, the too low heat may be another reason why you fail to add waves to your hair. If the curl doesn’t form within one or two minutes, your hot tool needs to be more – well – hot.


Black Oil Slick Hair


Long tresses are perfect for rocking the oil slick trend because they provide so much space for the most unexpected and extravagant color intertwining. You can opt for more vivid or more subtle, barely noticeable oil slick strands.

Shadowy rainbow is a new color trend that’s especially big with girls who like the colors to be both subtle and dramatic. This can be an ombre and balayage, as well as different highlights and babylights. In any case, you should pay attention to it!
