10 ways to wear burgundy hair

By  | 

If you want a hair color that is sultry, wild and classy all in one go, you’ll love burgundy hair. It has the adventure of a bold red shade, yet is a more muted, dark color for a more acceptable look in traditional settings. The wine tones of the shade give it character, and tone it down at the same time. But burgundy hair runs several shades and styles, make it a good option for whatever mood you’re in. Below are several stunning burgundy hairstyle ideas.
