The Best Reddish Brown Hair Colors To Try Now

Ginger Beer

Ginger beer is the hottest reddish brown hair color of the season and once you get a glimpse, you’ll understand why. Ginger beer hair color is a perfect blend of vibrant ginger and deep brown, creating a color that is both warm and vibrant. 

Hair this vivid can sometimes be difficult to maintain, so we recommend swapping out your regular shampoo and conditioner for the Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo and Conditioner. Specifically formulated for high-maintenance hair colors, the shampoo gently cleanses to maintain the vibrancy of fast-fading hair colors and the acidic conditioner deeply nourishes color-treated hair. 


Copper hair color is the gold standard for anyone looking to slay a reddish brown hair color. It’s  the toned-down sister of ginger beer hair color, perfect for anyone looking for a more subtle way to embrace red hair.

Soft Copper

If you love the look of copper hair but want a hue that’s a bit more muted, opt for soft copper. You’ll still get all of the warmth of copper hair color with some much-needed brown undertones for added depth. 


Looking for the perfect autumn hair color? Look no further than burgundy. This deep reddish brown hue looks particularly stunning on deep skin tones. 


Why fit in, when you can stand out? This crimson shade mixes equal parts deep brown and vibrant fiery red for a truly one-of-a-kind color. 

Brunette-To-Red Ombre

If you love reddish brown hair colors, just wait until you see you’ll love this literal take on the trend. Opt for a brown-to-red ombre for a final look that encompasses all of the shades in the reddish brown family. 


Looking for a reddish brown color that leans a little more brunette? Chestnut is the perfect shade for you. Light brown shades have a tendency to turn a bit brassy after a few weeks, so swap out your regular shampoo and conditioner for the Matrix Total Results Brass Off system to help keep unwanted brass at bay. 

Burnt Sienna

Living coral may have been dubbed the color of the year, but we’re declaring burnt sienna the color of the season! 

Chocolate Cherry

If you love red shades but aren’t ready to part with your dark locks, opt for chocolate cherry. To create this look, start with a dark chocolate base and ask your colorist to use the balayage technique to hand paint shades of vibrant red onto your strands.  


Auburn is the classic reddish brown hair color and for a good reason—it looks stunning on everyone!

Fiery Ends

Looking to embrace the reddish brown trend without completely committing to red hair color? Opt for fiery ends!

Cinnamon Cocoa

If you’re looking to give your brunette strands a reddish glow, opt for cinnamon cocoa hair color. The subtle red tinge over your dark brown hair will make your skin look sunkissed all year long.
