@paradox:  I have been growing my hair out for 2 years; all natural color. I anticipated a proposal (got it) and wanted the longest possible hair I could achieve so I had lots of options for wedding hair!

Just two months ago, I too got bored and got highlights/lowlights – and have regretted it ever since! Dye-job was great, don’t get me wrong, but I wish I had stuck with my natural color :

I dye my hair but it’s not drastic from my natural color. I want it to be close to my natural color for the wedding. I say if you’ve already been growing it out then there’s no point of stopping now. But you could always add subtle highlights to your hair too once it grows out- I wouldn’t do anything crazy since you spent all the time growing it out.

I wish I could have my true color back now, but I tend to want to dye my hair now cause I have a small grey patch in the front of my head that drives me crazy -and I’m only 24!!

I tend to like neutral tones for wedding makeup. And fake lashes can definitely be nice if they are subtle. I have nice full lashes but they never stay curled –  they want to lay straight out. I don’t necessarily want to wear fake lashes though so I’m not sure what I’m doing.

@paradox:  I don’t know if I’ll help… since I’m going super glam! I’m putting a pink gloss over my normally henna-red hair.

@paradox:  I used to have heavy blonde highlights over my dark blonde hair for years. My hair would never grow much longer than my collar bone until I decided to grow it out. It’s taken 4 dye jobs and a mix of lowlights etc just to get to a colour that I don’t get horrible roots.

Therefore, I would stick with the natural colour from my experience! My hair has grown probably 3 inches since and I rarely get split ends anymore. Also, all my male friends and SO say they prefer natural hair colour on women or subtle colour.

I won’t be colouring my hair at all for the next 5 months, until before my wedding. My hair is long so I want it to be healthy before the wedding but when I do colour it, I will most likely go as natural as possible. I won’t be matching my natural colour because to me it’s kinda blah but maybe a more darker, sexier colour. Nothing crazy, just a pretty colour. I don’t want my hair to distract everyone from my dress or makeup!!!!

I had a habit of trying to grow my hair out, getting bored, hacking it off again and IMMEDIATELY regretting it.  I looooooooooove my long hair and have enlisted multiple friends and family to talk me out of ever cutting it or dye-ing it a drastic color (which usually means red, as that takes forever to fade out again).  I regularly check in with my stylist too and remind her never to let me cut beyond a trim, and if I start getting antsy, convince me to go with feather extensions or other non-invasive things like that, she thinks it’s hilarious.  So, that being said, how do you feel about feather extensions? 😉

I’ve never dyed my hair so I wouldnt start now, lol.   I prefer natural looking colours anyway.   My hair is medium blonde witha bunch of natural highlights,  if I were to dye my hair I wouldnt get my natural colour back if I paid a ton of money.     As for make up,  I want to highlight my blue eyes not not look overly made up, nothing too dramatic but nice.   I have long lashes so I wouldnt wear false ones, just a little mascara to darken them as tthey’re naturally light.
