I prefer it darker–you can still add some other tones to darker hair to give it more dimension.

I also prefer dark. And while I wouldn’t mind some really subtle highlights to add dimension, I think your current color is quite trendy. I’m not saying it doesn’t look good, but I think in a few years we may have the same reaction to this style that we do now to chunky, stripey 90s highlights. Dark will never go out of fashion.

nashpoo :  With the added second photo, I would say dark for sure.

I think you look beautiful either way, but the dark hair definitely suits you!!

Visited the salon today, I’ve got similar hair as you (bronde) 🙂  I decided to go darker, to add dimension, as PP have mentioned.  It’s a more classic look.  I had lighter hair for engagement photos, so maybe best of both worlds and something to consider?

I would probably stick with the more natural hair and the hair that you have had for most of your relationship and will likely go back to in the future. The lighter hair looks nice, but it’s also something new that you *just* tried. Wouldn’t you rather look like the typical you on your wedding day? The gal that your FH fell in love with?

I go back and forth between brunette and blonde (with a detour to blue/green/purple) and I couldn’t decide either so just asked my Fiance what he thought!

Your natural hair looks way better on you altogether and is a lovely contrast with the white dress.

I love both but I think the other bees are onto something… the dark is a lot more timeless! I have a feeling the ombre will go out of style fast.

I LOVE your dark hair bee! It’s so striking! I do agree with other bees that you could add in some tonal colors to create depth and define the curls/hairdo (whatever you choose). But with that being said I’m torn on if I’d even do that as it’s so gorgeous naturally!

nashpoo :  I like the lighter hair!!  But if you don’t like it you could always go a mixture like ombre?  Baylage?

I really like the dark on you! Not to say that the lighter doesnt look gorgeous as well!

However, I really like the contrast between your dark hair and your beautiful dress. It’s very snow white and I;m LIVING FOR IT. <333

However, if you really like the lighter hair, you do you Bee! <3
