So I’ve been trying to figure out how exactly to dye my hair for my wedding.
Right now i have brown hair down to my waist, in layers. I’ve been liking and wanting to do the ombre but wasn’t sure if that would be cool for a wedding?
I loved Shenae Grimes Ombre color:
Where the hair is a dark brown, and golden brown/ caramel/ blonde towards the end?
Other than that, i’m not sure what’s currently IN for hair color.
Any comments or opinions?

I’m not really a fan of the ombre. Maybe you could just do some carmel highlights all over?

Well i guess that’s what I was wondering too, do people still do highlights? I wanted to give my hair a darker look since i’ve often done the lighter brown. I’m worried highlights will lighten up my hair though.

Yeah people still do highlights…maybe you could do carmel and then maybe a dark brownish red too…i’ll try to find a picture of what I’m talking about.

Something like this maybe? Just the color, not the cut..

+1, I think caramel highlights is the way to go, for a similar, but slightly more classic look (which is what I prefer for a wedding).

I love ombre, but it is very trendy and you might regret it. If you are a trendy kinda person, I say go for it. But if you have never done anything crazy with your hair, better not start before your wedding!
What do you think of this? Almost ombre, but more natural.
Here hair colour is gorg! Very subtle hightlights.

I found more pics I had to show you! They are ombre, but more natural. I find when ombre is very noticable, the ends of the hair can look sooo dry.

Ombre is still “in”, just depends what you like.
Keep in mind that if you plan to wear your hair up at all, lighter ends will be much more noticeable. My topknot was a totally different colour so I had the ends darken with a semi-perm rinse for the wedding.

I personally think ombré just looks like someone has let their roots grow out a little too long – but hey, that’s just my opinion. I’d go for some caramel low-lights 🙂

Hmm.. i have a lot to think about lol. Thanks for all the opinions girls.
Right now i have natural ombre (bc i did it myself). I guess if i was to go ombre at a salon id do it the right way etc.
Also, my hair is going to be down. Maybe ill look into some natural highlights photos. I usually go by celeb photos, but most celebs i found have ombre.
I do like these hair colors:
Maybe I’ll do a nice rich brown/ dark brown.. with the caramel highlights.
I would love to dye my hair like this! lol

I am biased – I love this ombré look. But given you are getting married soon – ask your stylist about damage and whether you can dye it back if you absolutely hate it. Otherwise I think it’s a very sun kissed beautiful look.

Re – Your Pics # 2 and # 3 from your original post
I am another who feels the “dramatic” ombre look really just comes across as someone who dyed their hair one colour (usually lighter) and then let their natural colour grow in… so that the dyed colour looks like it is growing out… and somewhat out of control (like the person isn’t into taking care of their hair)
I much prefer the more subtle looks that she showed in Replies # 7 and # 8
It does look like a few of them are really just highlights (carmel etc) that have been gently added to some strands. Truly classic / beautiful for a brunette IMO
Feel the same about the Pics you put up yourself with Reply # 11. Pics # 4 and # 5 (back shot) are particularly stunning !!
If you choose to wear your hair down, then this look with a veil would no doubt be STUNNING !!
Hope this helps,
