Give your hair a touch of Burgundy
The MATRIX pro guide to flaunt delectably rich shades of burgundy
If a glass of crisp Burgundy wine is appealing to your taste buds, then gracing its rich color on your client’s tresses will undoubtedly be an awe-inspiring idea. The mysterious undertones of wine’s purple and reddish-brown shades, make burgundy the perfect color for women who love to experiment.
So, if you want to give your client’s hair a youthful spin like Rihanna or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s frequently spotted burgundy tresses then MATRIX, the world’s leading American professional brand, shares the ultimate guide to help you get the rich burgundy hair hues.
Determining your client’s skin tone
With so many available shades from dark and subtle, to more vibrant and bright, it’s possible to find one that’s perfect for every skin tone and personality. However, determining your client’s correct skin tone before helping them choose a shade is very essential to get the desired look. If they are pink, olive or ebony skin toned, then cooler burgundy shades that contain lots of red and violet is the shade for them. Warmer burgundy shades that contain more brown tones are beautiful on complexions that are peachy or golden.
Working with the natural hair color
Now that you know their correct skin tone for this look, it’s time to understand their natural hair color to blend the edgy hues. Depending on how dark their natural color is, you may have to lighten their hair before applying the final burgundy tone so that it will come out bright enough. With darker hair, you can afford to use a heavier permanent colour, as it will leave the hair with a purple glow. If their hair is pale, you will have to darken it a bit before applying the final burgundy tone.
Experiment with Color Melting
You can also add an element of the Blackberry Melt to your client’s Burgundy hair color by experimenting with the Color Melting technique introduced by MATRIX. This hair highlighting technique mirrors natural hair patterns and shades together to create the ‘melted effect.’Inspired by the richness of luscious blackberries, Blackberry Melt is created using MATRIX SoColor shades #5.26 & #6.62. The melting effect will ensure that there is no line of demarcation, making it look completely natural on your client’s hair.
Up your client’s style quotient
Once you have given your clients their desired makeover, it is necessary to guide them on the correct style to gracefully flaunt the look. Complete the look with loose side braids or gorgeous mermaid waves.
Maintaining Burgundy color at home
To prevent burgundy hair color from fading, recommend shampoo and conditioner formulas that are specifically made for colored hair. MATRIX Biolage ColorLast homecare range, inspired by the anti-fade properties of the vibrant Orchid flower, helps maintain shiny and vibrant color for up to 9 weeks.* Talk to clients and tell them the importance of using a the complete homecare regime, shampoo, conditioner and leave in serum.
