So my hair is naturally a light brown colour, but I dye it dark red. What do you Bees do in this situation? Do you dye your hair a more neutral and natural colour for your wedding? Or stick with what you like? I LOVE my dark red hair, and im not a fan of my natural hair colour because its too light for my liking, but I dont want to look back on my wedding photos years from now and be like what was I thinking with that hair colour!?!? Thoughts? Have you been in a situation like this?

I think if you wear your hair dark red every day, that’s how it should look in your photos! It’s not so outrageous sounding and don’t think it will look bad years from now.

IceAndFire: If you’re not sure about your feelings on it in retrospect, you can chose something midway between the dark red and light brown- something a bit more “natural”.
Are we talking rainbow red or hair color red? Either way, you could go with a medium hair color red.

IceAndFire: I agree with TaraMay_: . If you wear your hair like that all the time and it’s not just a phase this year, you might as well wear it on your wedding day.
I know one girl who dyed her hair bright red for her engagement photos and her wedding day, then dyed it back right after…. I really didn’t think she looked that great. She looked like she tried a bit too hard and it backfired. I’m not a catty person or mean-spirited, either. It just did not look like her.

IceAndFire: I did the same thing although I went from medium brown to red. I plan on keeping my red and making sure it is perfectly red before my wedding. I no longer see myself as the person i was with brown hair. I am a new me and that new me has red hair. I have been dying my hair red for the past 4 years or so and I know i am not changing that any time soon. but that is just my opinion.
I think you should keep your hair dyed becuse it is an expression of who you are and you don’t want to diminish that.

TaraMay_: thanks so much for your response! I’ve dyed my hair red since I was 13, with periods in between of letting it grow out back into the natural brown, but every time it goes back red everyone comments that it looks better dark and red, so hopefully they are telling the truth!
gingerkitten: Thank you! I like your idea of going somewhere in between! Especially because I’m getting married outside so the sun is going to make it look extra red! It’s not rainbow red, but you can tell it is dyed, nobody would be born with this hair colour! Think mahogany.
damarajade: thanks!! people are used to seeing me with red hair so I don’t think it would surprise people, but who knows if people actually like the red! I find your friends and family just go with whatever you like!
kayyy727: thanks! I think your right, I dye my hair red for me because I like it so I should just have it how I like it on my wedding day, or maybe I’ll regret that and feel like I wasn’t being me.
thanks again for your help! Red it is!
