Skincare Terms Explained

Pore-minimizing, toning, brightening—skincare can be a minefield of not-so-clear terms, so here’s a primer to help demystify the language.

If there’s one way to really embrace a bold hair look, it’s to lean into burgundy hair dye— a perfect shade for almost everyone. It’s statement-making without being brash, and it’s unique without being too much. This beauty switch-up can be as bold or as mild as you like, and you can play with looks that are temporary (for the non-committed) or long lasting (for someone who knows what she wants). Here’s how to get the burgundy hair of your dreams—no matter what those dark purple red hair dreams may be.

Who can rock burgundy hair dye

The good news is that this is a look for everyone. Whether your skin tone is fair or deep, or whether your hair is light or dark, dying hair burgundy can be an option for you. Here are a few hair colouring tips to make the look truly your own:

· If you have light hair:

Stick to a look that won’t stray too far from your honeyed look. Opt for burgundy hair ombré to try the trend, and then you can decide if you want to up the ante. The lighter your skin tone, the more you want to treat lightly when it comes to deep, pigmented burgundy. Start small and work your way up.

  • If you have dark hair:

This is a great look for you. Burgundy can really add some edge to a look that already includes dark hair. Opt for an all-over application to really see how dark purple red hair looks on you. If you have light skin and dark hair, be wary of doing anything too dramatic, unless that’s what you’re after. If your skin tone is darker, you can definitely play around with tone and pigment and go for dark burgundy hair—have fun!

  • If you have greying hair:
    You can still opt for burgundy hair colour. Try L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme Permanent Hair Colour in 5RB Medium Reddish Brown. This hair dye not only protects and nourishes hair while providing rich hair colour but also offers 100% grey hair coverage.
