    I use to dye my hair dark red like that and I loved it. Are you planning to do hair up or down for your wedding?

    I’ve gone back to my original color (dirty blonde) but the thought of dying it as crept in.

    @rmrsln2010:  Honestly I prefer your natural color…it suits your complexion really well, especially if you use some blush and bronzer for some color.  In fact you could pull off some highlights throughout for sparkle if you’re doing a half up half down style.  I think you’d look amazing that way.    

    The red, while rich, seems jarring and makes you look super pale IMO!

    I prefer the brown. The red doesn’t look too natural.

    both are quite nice.  i am leaning towards the brown (maybe just because you are smiling in that pic).

    @rmrsln2010:  For me a deciding factor would be to ask myself “how would I feel with a bunch of people staring at me?” If you feel comfortable in the red then go for it. 

    Of course it’s not a natural hair color, but I don’t see why that would matter. And I am super pale and I use to rock the auburn hair.

    Dark red. 


    Have you considered bangs? They would look great on you.

    I think a darker warm brown would look great on you! Have you tried that?

    I think brown, or perhaps a slightly richer shade of brown. Some highlights maybe? I just think it’s softer, more classic than the red (which would also more tricky make-up wise).
