1. Classic Black Cherry Hair
The beauty about black cherry hair is that it harmoniously combines tones of burgundy, violet, and, of course, black. If you want a classic version of the trending hair color, you should mix all three of the above-mentioned tones evenly.
2. Black Cherry Color with Mixed Tones
Speaking of tones, here is the ideal example of how you can mix those three hues in a more daring manner. Instead of thoroughly blending all of them, consider applying them so that they all stand out individually. We recommend it as an exciting way to play with black cherry shades.
3. Dark Black Cherry Hair
If you’re a natural brunette, you should think about using a dark black cherry tone. The darker it is, the more it will come close to your natural hair color while providing beautiful accents. You’ll see the sparkling results the minute sunshine hits your hair.
4. Red Velvet Hair
Even though we’re used to seeing black cherry hair with dashes of purple in it, the all-red alternative looks phenomenal. If you’re more drawn to dark ruby hair, opt for a red velvet hairstyle inspired by black cherries. It looks particularly nice against pale skin tones.
5. Long Straight Black Cherry Hair
If you’re lucky enough to have long and straight hair, rest assured that black cherry will look outstanding on you. The longer your hair is, the more you can appreciate the intriguing tones that come with this charming hair color.
6. Chocolate Black Cherry Hair
Brown plays an important role in getting picture-perfect black cherry hair. In addition, it makes the hair color an easy switch for girls with naturally brown hair. The chocolate black cherry outcome is sure to capture the attention of all those around you.
7. Black Cherry Highlights on Black Hair
On the other hand, you may prefer using black cherry only for a portion of your hair. For instance, you can get a pretty set of black cherry highlights. We believe they’re even more flattering for women with a black base.
8. Dark Magenta Hair
There’s no doubt that we’re in love with magenta hair. Nevertheless, we know that a classic electric shade of magenta won’t work for everyone. For a more delicate approach, think about toning down your magenta until you get it closer to black cherry.
9. Intense Black Cherry Hair
While some women would rather rock natural-looking hair colors, others want to go all the way with intense tones. If you’re part of the latter category, don’t hesitate to go all-out with your black cherry hair. Get your hair colored by a professional for extra-fancy results.
10. Medium Black Cherry Hairstyle
If you’re not a subtle gal but neither a flashy one, you can easily get a medium black cherry color. It focuses mainly on red shades, all toned down to a magnificent deep wine hue. Go for this approach if you seek balance in your hairstyle and overall appearance.
11. Black Cherry Hair Balayage
At the moment, there’s no trendier hair coloring technique than balayage. We especially recommend it for obtaining black cherry hair, owing to the mixture of tones involves. Through a balayage coloring job, you’ll be able to appreciate all of the shades that go into the final color.
12. Rusty Highlights on Black Cherry Base
Aside from using black cherry as the color for your highlights, you can also go the other way around. To put it shortly, you can get a black cherry foundation and add highlights in the color of your choice on top. Rusty red is a neat way to get started.
13. Black Cherry Base with Caramel Highlights
Alternatively, you can boost the contrast of your entire hairstyle by choosing a completely different color for your highlights. For example, you can brighten up a black cherry base with striking caramel highlights all around. We’re sure you’ll love the fun outcome.
14. Plum Black Cherry Hair
We have covered quite a few red-oriented black cherry hairstyles. However, we want to shine light on those that focus on the plum undertones of this alluring hair color. If you’re a die-hard purple fan, feel free to incorporate more of those shades into your take on the look.
15. Light Black Cherry Hair
The majority of black cherry hairstyles that you’ll see are more towards the dark side. Be that as it may, you can add your personal twist by lightening your black cherry hair. The hairstyle will end up looking like burgundy mixed with magenta, so you know you can’t go wrong with it.
16. Black Cherry Undertones
We are obsessed with how much skill and grace has been put into this coloring job. As you can observe above, the dark chocolate base already has extremely discrete red tones. Nonetheless, the real icing on the cake is the undercoat of black cherry tones that wrap around the curls. Gorgeous!
17. Bright Black Cherry Hair
Here is the perfect example of how bright black cherry hair would look like in the sun. Not only do you get extra shine from the rich shades used, but you’ll also stand out creatively. No matter how long or short your hair is, it’s bound to make heads turn if you get this color.

Regardless of your personal style, we fully recommend vintage hairstyles for any special occasion. You can be a girly girl, rockabilly chick or anything in between – a retro black cherry hairstyle will always complement your personality and appearance.
21. Black Cherry on Natural Hair
If you have succeeded in growing out your natural hair healthily, you may want to stay away from heavily damaging dyes like blonde or silver. As a less-destructive alternative, try out black cherry and see if you like the way it flatters your natural locks.
22. Dark Brown Hair with Black Cherry Hair Shine
Subtlety can be the key to a chic black cherry hairstyle. In this case, the tasteful black cherry shine makes the dark brown base stand out in a wonderful way. We encourage you to try the idea out if you want a hairstyle that’s on the natural side.
23. Curly Black Cherry Hair
Natural curls deserve to be accentuated accordingly! If you want to have your curls popping more than ever, give them a chance with black cherry. The sweet blend of colors will contour your ringlets and make them sparkle all day.
24. Red Roots on Black Cherry Base
Black cherry is undoubtedly one of the best colors you can opt for if you want your hair to shimmer when you go outside on a sunny day. To boost the impact, think about using a redder shade at your roots and going darker as you proceed to your roots.
25. Natural Black Cherry Hairstyle
If you want to get as natural as possible with your hair color, you should rather go for a burgundy hairstyle. The fact that this specific tone drops the purple in favor of red makes it have that natural aspect you’re looking for.
26. Black Cherry Hair Lowlights
Highlights are beautiful, but they may not be up your alley. However, lowlights just might be. We’d say that they’re the subtler alternative to classic highlights. They focus more on the lower part of your hair, bringing out enchanting undertones.
27. Mahogany Black Cherry Hair
Although it comes pretty close to medium black cherry, we support mahogany as a fantastic color of its own. Mahogany is basically the perfect combination of brown and red, with just a pinch of violet to cool down the warmer tones.
28. Bright Red Highlights on Black Cherry Base
Step up your highlight game with bright red ones! If your base hair color is black cherry, you shouldn’t hesitate to pair it with its vivid counterpart. You can follow the asymmetrical highlights pattern like in the photo above, or go for an evenly spread out look.
29. Black Cherry Hairstyle with Wispy Highlights
Notwithstanding, you shouldn’t limit yourself to standard highlights. For instance, you can opt for wispy highlights if you want them to be just a discrete addition to your black cherry hair. Here, you can pick any color you like, as the results will still be as delicate as ever.
30. Chocolate and Black Cherry Hair Color Melt
So, we’ve covered chocolate black cherry, but what if you melted the two colors separately? Well, the outcome is sure to blow your mind. Using a technique between balayage and ombre, you can start from chocolate brown and blend out to black cherry.
31. Blueish Black Hair with Black Cherry Highlights
Take a walk on the wild side by experimenting with courageous colors! If you want your hair to have a sunset-like appearance, try combining your black cherry with a cooler tone. Blueish black is ideal, but you can also go for something closer to indigo.
32. Pale Black Cherry Hair
Black cherry hair is the kind that looks just as good intense as it does pale. Therefore, we warmly recommend that you play around with a paler tone, especially if you dig pastels. The results will be somewhat like a dark pink pastel hairstyle.
33. Honey Blonde and Red Orange Highlights on Black Cherry Base
Creative and fun hairstyles are the best! If you’re not scared to step a bit out of your comfort zone, consider mixing multiple colors on your black cherry base. You can combine a multitude of highlights ideas, like the honey blonde and red orange ones in the pic above.
34. Black Cherry Hair with Purple Tones
Bring on the purple! For this black cherry hairstyle, we turn the plum up a notch to get a rich shade of purple. The surplus of mauve will add an almost satin-like touch to your hairstyle. Moreover, you’ll be staying on top of trends, as the current Pantone Color of the Year is Ultra Violet.
35. Ringlets with Black Cherry Tips
Show your curls some love by sprinkling in some color. If you don’t want to risk deteriorating them, you can add black cherry only to the tips. Additionally, it’s a fabulous way of making your individual ringlets stand out.
36. Chunky Black Cherry Lowlights
As opposed to wispy highlights, chunky lowlights draw a lot of attention to your hairstyle. If you’re a woman with an outgoing personality, chunky black cherry lowlights or highlights are definitely for you. You can either get them from top to bottom or only in the lower half.
37. Black Cherry Hair with Red and Plum Accents
If you want your #hairgoals to come to life, it’s always best to work with a professional hairstylist. The same case applies if you want an intricately colored hairstyle, such as this black cherry balayage. Deep red springs from the roots and melts into plum and blueish black on the way down.
38. Sombre Black Cherry Hair
We love the sombre for its delicate femininity. It’s the less harsh version of the iconic ombre, with a smoother transition from one color to the other. Even though it comes close to balayage, you can still identify the two distinct colors.
39. Deep Wine Hair
A little bit of romance can go a long way for your hairstyle. Red wine is the stunning dark red alternative for the classic black cherry with plum hues. Like you can guess from the name, the color aims to recreate the tone of deep red wine.
40. Black Cherry Hair with Light Eyes
We have presented several photos of women with dark eyes and black cherry hair. Still, we haven’t really showed how the color would look on ladies with light-colored eyes. If you have green or blue eyes, rest assured that you will be glamorous with black cherry locks.
41. Pale Plum Hairstyle
We’ll switch back to plum for this idea, but with a pale twist. We believe that this hairstyle has the greatest amount of purple influence out of all our black cherry ideas. With this fact in mind, you should totally go for it if you’re a violet girl.
42. Black Cherry Hair with Violet Tones
As an alternative, balance out your plum black cherry hairstyle with a tad bit of red. The overall color will still visibly lean towards purple, but it won’t be as restrictive as our aforementioned idea. We also like how the color is not too dark, nor too light.
43. Cherry and Black Highlights
Black cherry doesn’t always have to appear as a solid color. Actually, you can end up with a much cooler hairstyle if you break down the colors separately. To help you get a better idea of what we’re talking about, take a look at the black and cherry highlights mix above.
44. Black Cherry Hair Bangs
Not interested in conventional hairstyles? We have just the right inspiration for you. Use black cherry only for a section of your hair. Instead of concentrating it in the lower part of your hair like most, dare to use it for your bangs.
45. Subtle Highlights Black Cherry Hairstyle
“Natural” is fairly difficult to obtain if you want to play around with highlights. Still, it isn’t impossible, particularly if you play around with tones from the same palette. We recommend the method for lighter black cherry highlights on a slightly darker base.
46. Black Cherry with Auburn Lowlights Hairstyle
Auburn lowlights look terrific when combined with almost any hair color. They shine even more marvelously when paired with black cherry hair. To bring some warmth to your black cherry base, throw in some auburn lowlights at the bottom.
47. Weave with Black Cherry Hair Ombre
Regardless if you want to get a weave, wig, or any kind of extensions, a black cherry ombre is perfect for the job. The darker top will blend more naturally with your natural hair color, while the black cherry will continue beautifully from there.
48. Black Cherry Hair with Pink Highlights
Pink highlights are insanely cute, no matter what color they go on. To bring out your inner diva, scatter a few hot pink highlights on top of your main black cherry color. You can focus on the top or place them all around.
49. Splash of Black Cherry on Black Hair
Sometimes, all you need is literally a splash of color to liven up your whole hairstyle. If you rock jet black hair, for example, you can brighten up the tips on each side with a bit of black cherry. Use the photo above as a clear reference.
50. Black Cherry Roots with Pastel Champagne Hair
Finally, we’re happy to end on a joyful note with a black cherry and pastel champagne balayage. We adore how the roots stick to the essence of black cherry hair, while the rest is a phenomenal and feminine shade of light blonde and cotton candy pink.
