If you've always been curious about what it's like to be a redhead or simply want to punch up your already red hair, then burgundy hair — red's richer, edgier cousin — might be just the change you are seeking.

"When I think of burgundy hair, I think of a nice, rich wine tone," says Maddison Cave from the David Mallett salon in New York. "Ask [your colorist] for a deep red on the cooler side with notes of blue-violet."

Cave says that while the color is gorgeous, it is on the darker side, so you might not want to take the full plunge if you are currently a blonde — highlights or an orange-based burgundy dye might be more your speed. "But I love giving my brunettes a burgundy tone that warms the skin and brings out gold in the eyes," she says.
