    Personally, I find your hair to be stunning and I wouldn’t touch it.

    I’m one of those never-dyed-my-hair people, so I understand you. I think your hair looks great, but it would also look great with highlights. I would make it subtle though – no platinum blonde or anything. But just a little something to make it pop? Could be gorgeous, but so is your natural hair!

    You have a beautiful natural color that many people would kill for. I wouldn’t touch it.  I thnk the braid stands out just fine.

    If I were you, I wouldn’t mess with it! Your natural hair color is pretty. I’m like you, I have a similar hair color with natural highlights and I have never colored my hair. I think you should leave it! 🙂

    Lol as a hair color virgin myself (never processed one bit) I say keep your hair natural!

    It’s so hard to get your hair back to it’s natural state afterward without an odd grow out.

    Plus, your hair is beautiful!

    This is my unprocessed hair on our wedding day 🙂

    I wouldn’t. I once asked for subtle highlights, and half my head ended up platinum blonde. I kid you not.

    I just wouldn’t risk it this close to the wedding. That event led to the next few years of majorly screwed up hair (trying to fix it) and eventually a really short haircut.

    Your hair color is lovely. Even if you had more natural highlights it wouldn’t be THAT different than your hair is now (I get them too in the sun).

    Unless you really trust your hairdresser I’d just skip it.

    If you did I wouldn’t just do some in the back, because they will be noticeably different than your natural highlights.

    @lovelove1028:  If you love your hair so much, don’t do it. You love your hair, who cares what a silly stylist has to say.

    The coloring in the first picture is flipping beautiful.  I’m assuming the other two pics are just bad lighting.   IF that is the case  DO NOT do anytihng to your hair.  It is so pretty as it is!   


    Love the braid too!

    I just don’t think that you should make a decision like this for one day.  If you love your hair as is, why change it, especially for the back? It’s lovely.  If you do, however, go with a really light-handed balayage technique, that will yield the most natural sun-kissed looking results.
