pull it back and let it grow for 8 months.

I’d say cut the longer parts only as much as so they won’t look like a mullet anymore AND get your hair re-colored. I know how bad it is to have a color you’re not happy with. It makes you feel like it’s not you. Even if your hair does get more damaged, there are lots of repairing treatments that you can do at home, or get done at a salon.

Best of luck!

What type of hair do you have? That may determine how much it may be damaged. 

 I say let it grow and opt for a color treatment at a salon (another one if you got your hair done unhappily before)! Salon color is much gentler on hair than box color and safer on the whole. I’m sure they can tone down the color and suggest healthy ways to get it on the right track.

Eight months is actually a pretty long time for your hair to grow.  Definitely talk to a stylist to see what’s possible.  Good luck!

Color it.  Depositing color is not what’s damaging it’s the highlights (i.e bleach) that does that.  I would also have the haircut shaped up so that you like it.  8 months is a long time to hate your hair for one day.  There’s always the option of extensions for the day.

I agree with some PP about cutting the longer layers a little bit so it doesn’t look so much like a mullet. I think 8 months is enough to get it longer for the wedding. Also coloring your hair to your natural color would be ideal. Coloring really isn’t thaat damaging if you’re doing it once or twice in 8 months. Find some hair treatments ( I suggest the treatments from L’Oreal EverStrong) cause they leave you’re hair feeling suuuuper soft and luscious and treat your hair once a week.

I’d say grow it out and dye it. When you get closer to the day you can decide what will work for the hairstyle you want and cut accoridingly! Otherwise you may end up with not enough hair for a certain style. Or, if you end up wanting a shorter style, you can cut it off then! Plus, it sounds like you are wanting to dye it anyway. And whether you cut your hair now or later you will still end up with roots. So just gye it and get rid of the unwanted blonde. Keep in mind though that the highlights will take to the color MUCH faster than the rest of your hair so you may have to dye it twice to get a more even color. They do make moisturizing hair dyes which is what I use.
