@strangewaysherewecome:  I also have dark hair and I was wondering the same thing. I was thinking of getting some mid-level highlights just to give my hair dimension, but Im kind of afraid of committing to that, even for the day. I spoke with my hair stylist and she made a good suggestion: use clip in hair extensions! They come in all colors are made of real hair so you can curl them, etc, and I think that’s what I might do so I don’t have to get permanent highlights. Anyways, I thought I would throw that out there as a suggestion.

I think if you do something too bright or chunky you might end up looking at your pictures 20 years from now and wondering “what was I thinking?!”

I would avoid anything trendy, since trends fade so fast. I have dark hair that is ombre at the bottom, which is my all time favorite hair style, and is really hot right now, but I know that in ten years it will be so out, so I’m dying it all dark brown for the wedding. I wouldn’t try anything too extreme close to the wedding, but stick with what you know looks good.


This is a photo from my wedding planner’s facebook, this girl has dark hair with a little red, and she has a messy updo. I think it would be cute to add a little headband with some beading or something.

At the end of the day, whatever makes you feel the most beautiful is what’s important!

I have dark brown/black hair and I think that as long as it’s shiny and healthy, it’s not going to look dull, boring or flat. There’s really no need to get highlights.

@zippeylef: oh my stars, you ( and your hair ) are BEAUTIFUL. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a fellow dark locked bride and agree that glossy looking versus highlights make for some stunning photographs. ๐Ÿ™‚

try getting some highlights/lowlights about 3 weeks before the wedding. Then do a trial (if you were going to). 

That way you can see if you like it and then fix it if you don’t.

Just for reference, I have very dark brown hair and my colorist added caramel hilights.
