"Sangria Hair" Is the Magenta Hair Color We're Seeing Everywhere

If there's one hair color that's been popping up all over the internet—punctuating our Instagram feeds and getting snapped on many a fashion week runway—it's magenta. Magenta hair is the fall color we're seeing everywhere, and the eye-catching hue has quickly become a cool-girl favorite. A wonderfully unnatural take on red, the striking color makes a statement and is still flattering on all skin tones and various hair textures—and we can't look away. In fact, this season's iteration is a bit darker, moodier, and more wine-tinged than a traditional magenta, which is why we're dubbing is "sangria hair."

Korean model HoYeon Jung is the poster girl for cool-girl sangrihair. She's been sporting the shade for some time, proving it looks just as stunning on the runway as it does on the streets. Worn in waves, super sleek and straight, crimped, braided, or pulled back, magenta hair is a showstopping feature of any beauty look. So if you're looking to make a big change to your mane this season—and are considering pumping up the pigment with sangria hair—check out some of our favorite iterations of the style rounded up here.
