    Ha, My Fiance is obsessed with red-heads.  I’ve dyed it reddish 2-3 times for him over the years but always come back to medium/dark blonde.  I’m naturally a dark blonde but dye it a little lighter to cover some early-onset gray.

    I like your current color, but maybe throw in a couple blonder highlights?  It looks really good though!!

    And of course, for non-natural blondes, isn’t that quite a lot of upkeep??  The brown roots must show through so fast.  At least mine blend in for awhile.

    You need to be careful with so much chemical on your hair, youre gonna kill it if you keep trying. 

    What about a middle ground of a dark ashy blonde? It may be easier to obtain than your natural hair color, and Fiance will like it because its blonde and it wont look as Barbie.

    I’ve gone through the exact same hair issues as you. I’m naturally dark ashy blond, highlighed it for years then went through various shades of brown (which always ended up washing out to red)

    For the past year I’ve made use of the ‘grown out look’ trend  to get back to my natural colour and am planning a few subtle highlights to brighten it up. Think Jennifer aniston.

    I would look back at pictures of yourself and see which ones you like best and find a good hairdresser to work with you on getting there over a few months.

    Good luck!

    Honestly I don’t know how he can consider that red! It’s brown, with some red in the sunlight but dyed brown hair will ALWAYS have red undertones unless you’ve gone into the plum undertone range in which case your hair would be super dark.

    It’s not like you are carrot top, I’m not sure what his concern is. And I’m sure he doesn’t mean it this way, but it seems a little mean to be so adamant about it for wedding day. He should love you for you, regardless if you’re brunette, blonde or bald!

    imagine how you’ll feel about your hair in 20 years looking at your pictures. I think you should try to go as natural as you can.

    As a Hairstylist myself, I absolutely adore the top photos, particularly the top right one.  That colour looks amazing on your skin tone, I’d keep it for the wedding.  I do like the blonde as well, but I’d go a couple levels darker on that, as someone already suggested.  The thing with brown hair, it usually pulls red in sunlight, unless you are a lighter brown (as I am), then you’re pulling gold/orange.

    I say keep it, you look beautiful.
