A little back story:
I had my hair dyed pink for years. I loved it and I miss it.
But I had a job for 4 years that wouldnt allow you to have funky colored hair.
Now I dont have a job, and my wedding is in 5 months. I’ll be dying my hair before the wedding, and getting a job again after the wedding. I think its perfect timing to do something crazy!
I found this picture and I LOVE it. I think its beautiful.
But since my hair is naturally red tinted, pink tends to stay in my hair, even after I dye it another color. Also, the black at the bottom looks great, but I’d rather not have to bleach my hair again before I dye it for the wedding.
So I was thinking maybe leaving the bottom blonde from the bleaching. And instead of doing purple and pink, doing aqua and purple.
But my mom says that the blue wont be as flattering on me as pink is.
Here’s a picture from my engagement pictures so you can see my skin tone. This is also probably how I’ll have my hair dyed for the wedding.

I say the pink, purple, and black (though the picture has blonde too, right?). But if you don’t want to do the black, then I’d do pink, purple, blonde.
I think your pink hair looked good on you so that is why I’m leaning toward the pinks/purples. Its just hard for me to visualize the blues, though your blue dress does look pretty against your skin. So yeah… I’m no help. May as well disregard this post 😛

Ahhhhh so many pretty colors!!!
Honestly the aqua/purple really appeals to me, but from what I’ve seen of that color in hair in real life, that photo is probably photoshopped a bit and those colors tend to look much, much duller in reality.
IF you’re sure you can get the purple/aqua to come out that bright and stay that way for a length of time, I say go for it. Otherwise, I think the pink/purple would look AMAZING on you

@adoc86: I’ve had blonde and pink before and it looked great on me (although I seem to have lost all my pictures of it =( )
@rachelmichelle: I’ve never tried to put blue in my hair before, so I’m not sure how it would hold. But one of my friends (the one that will be dying my hair) currently has her hair a slightly darker aqua, and its held for about a month.
I do think I look fantastic with pink hair (so modest of me,) but I’m just worried I wont be able to get all of it out and my hair might look pinkish red on my wedding.
I think the main thing scaring me away from the aqua is that it might make me look sickly somehow.
