I’m not really a fan of the ombre. Maybe you could just do some carmel highlights all over?

@MsGosling510:  Yeah people still do highlights…maybe you could do carmel and then maybe a dark brownish red too…i’ll try to find a picture of what I’m talking about.

Something like this maybe? Just the color, not the cut..

@yogaqueen:  +1, I think caramel highlights is the way to go, for a similar, but slightly more classic look (which is what I prefer for a wedding).

I love ombre, but it is very trendy and you might regret it. If you are a trendy kinda person, I say go for it. But if you have never done anything crazy with your hair, better not start before your wedding!

What do you think of this? Almost ombre, but more natural.

Here hair colour is gorg! Very subtle hightlights.

I found more pics I had to show you! They are ombre, but more natural. I find when ombre is very noticable, the ends of the hair can look sooo dry.

Ombre is still “in”, just depends what you like.

Keep in mind that if you plan to wear your hair up at all, lighter ends will be much more noticeable. My topknot was a totally different colour so I had the ends darken with a semi-perm rinse for the wedding.

I personally think ombré just looks like someone has let their roots grow out a little too long – but hey, that’s just my opinion. I’d go for some caramel low-lights 🙂

I am biased – I love this ombré look. But given you are getting married soon – ask your stylist about damage and whether you can dye it back if you absolutely hate it. Otherwise I think it’s a very sun kissed beautiful look.

Re – Your Pics # 2 and # 3 from your original post

I am another who feels the “dramatic” ombre look really just comes across as someone who dyed their hair one colour (usually lighter) and then let their natural colour grow in… so that the dyed colour looks like it is growing out… and somewhat out of control (like the person isn’t into taking care of their hair)

Like raisedonrobbery:  I much prefer the more subtle looks that she showed in Replies # 7 and # 8

It does look like a few of them are really just highlights (carmel etc) that have been gently added to some strands.  Truly classic / beautiful for a brunette IMO

Feel the same about the Pics you put up yourself with Reply # 11.  Pics # 4 and # 5 (back shot) are particularly stunning !!

If you choose to wear your hair down, then this look with a veil would no doubt be STUNNING !!

 Hope this helps,
