I consistently dye my hair to keep it dark brown/black. My natural color is an odd light brown that’s kinda just dirty looking – like it can’t decide whether it wants to be blonde or brown, and I don’t like it. So I found my perfect color, soft black by garnier.
So I dye my hair about every two months, its’ time for my to dye again, but my wedding is in four weeks.
Should I wait another week or two, or do it now so it’s washed out enough?
How long are you girls waiting, those of you who consistently dye your hair??

I would go ahead and do it now.. so it has time to wash out alittle ya kno? You know how sometimes right after you do your own color at first it just looks like it came out of a box??Like kinda un-natural looking?? But its totally up to you!! thats just what I would do..

My hair is the exact same way. If I dye it brown, the roots come in waaay blonde. If I lighten it even a little, they come in almost black. Naturally my hair is a dishwater blonde/pale brown. I prefer how the dye looks after about 3 weeks, so I’ll probably do that. I used to do store bought, but it fades so quickly that getting it done professionally has actually saved me money and damage.

I am lucky enough to have a cousin who is a profesional colorist in manhattan. He does my hair ever 6-10 weeks. I will be leaving for the wedding location a week before the wedding and have him color me just before I leave. I want the color fresh and not faded.
For your wedding even if you normally do your own dye – I would consider having it done professionally and I would do it a week or two before. Its to early now you can live with it for a few more weeks.

I’ve had my hair colored professionally and it’s just “eh”. I figure I can do the exact same thing, and I like being able to do it myself. I dyed my hair a week before my engagement pictures, and I looove how it looked. Since I’ve been doing it for so long, I trust myself to make it turn out alright 🙂
My mom said to wait about two weeks as well, so I might just wait a little while 🙂

I just dyed mine 2 days ago and I’m getting married in a week. I think going closer to the wedding (1-2 weeks) is best because the color isn’t fading and you take less chance of any grays coming in!

haha well I’m only 20, I’m not too concerned about grays 🙂 but my roots grow in fast and those always look awful in pictures!

my stylist said that two weeks before was the ideal time.

Honestly, I’m sure your comfortable with doing it yourself, but why not look into having a professional do it this time? At home color can easily change basedo n how old it is, did it mixed well enough etc, and these little things can lead to big problems.
I would say if you’re set on it to go two weeks out, that way it gives some time to get it adjusted or if something goes wrong (fingers crossed it doesn’t) you can get to a stylist/colorist who can give you the color your looking for. I have highlights of platinum blonde all over with low lights of honey blonde, my hair is naturally an ashy looking blonde, but the brighter color works better for me. My last highlight before our wedding is two saturdays before.

well I can’t afford to have it done professionally anyway, so that’s not even an option. There are still a lot of things left to pay for the wedding.

My colorist said to consider when you like your dye the best. Is it right after it’s done? A few weeks out? etc… I’m opting to do my color 3 weeks in advance. It will give it just a little time to settle, but still have that “fresh” look.

I colored my hair 1 week before the wedding, but I wanted my color to be rich. My natural color sounds a lot like yours, and I dye mine a deep brown color.

I also vote to consult a professional– this is the ultimate time to treat yourself and you know your results will be gorgeous.
My haircolor is dirtyblonde/brown and natural. I want to lighten it to blonde but my family keeps saying I won’t look like “me” on my wedding day.

My stylist suggest one week before the wedding so that it will still be vibrant, but not too bright.
