    ema1987 :  I want to be honest in the nicest way possible. I would stay with your natural color. If you really want to color your hair, go to the most reputable hair salon in your area no matter how much it costs, and go tomorrow. 

    When I dyed my hair for the first time, by a professional, it took some getting used to. I even had to change my normal makeup routine (eye-shadow, lipstick, and blush colors) because of the hair color change. It wasn’t a big change either. 

    If you are set on coloring your hair, go with inspiration photos to a reputable stylist. Listen to their honesty. If they say they can’t get you to a specific color, they can’t. However, it sounds like you just want a subtle change, and they will give you professional advice, and the best options. I would also do the shine.

    I know it’s every girls dream to look their very best on their wedding day. Wishing you all the best!

    Hi bee!

    For what you’re looking for, I would definitely recommend balayage only. If you ask for something subtle, it’ll add dimension without changing your look completely.

    All-over color will require a touch-up and there’s more room for error.

    Leave your natural hair and just do the gentle balayage on the midlengths to bottom. Bring them your inspiration pictures so they’ll know how light you want to go. Definitively don’t do an all over color, it’s going to be high maintenance and you’ll have a demarcation line when your roots come in.

    You need to go now, and to the best salon you can afford. Bring in so many pictures that show a very faint balayage. Do not do an all over color. It is way too high maintenance. I wouldn’t sacrifice years of maintenance just for wedding photos. Your hair will have a lot more depth with just a cut and a little bit of color.
