I love the cut, but I wouldn’t go super blonde just yet. Maybe try highlights first and then if you like the lighter colour, go for a full blonde in a couple months.

I agree with gingersnap. Try highlights first. The cut looks great, though!

go big or go home! but i would highly suggest talking to a stylist. going blond is not easy and can totally ruin your hair – major highlights is probalby the best way to go so you dont fry or damage your hair in the processs. but i love the style and the color. go for it!

I would start with the highlights and add more if you like it.  If you don’t it takes a long time to get all the blond out of your hair. Good luck 🙂

I think you should just go blonde. You’re skin tone is good for it! This is very cute, but I’m sure takes a while to style.

I think it’d look really pretty on you — but keep in mind that blonde is pricey to keep up! So maybe highlights would be best.

I think you’d look gorgeous in blonde! But you should probably try to progressively get there with strong highlights to find out what kind of blond exactly would suit you for the wedding.

I say go for it!  It’s fun to make a big change and your stylist will help you pick the right shade of blonde for your skin tone.  Plus you can add a few shades of blondes to add dimension and softness.  I’m sure you will rock the new look!  And congrats on the weight loss!

I agree with PP. The cut is darling and looks pretty easy to maintain, as well, is still long enough to put up should you so want to.As far as going blonde… I would recommend highlights anyways.

Ask your stylist to keep your natural tone as the base for lowlights and then ask for two different shades of blonde throughout your hair.   She can decide which two are best for your skin tone.  Then have lots of the lighter of the two framing your face and a few randoms through the back of your hair.  Also if you leave a lot of the natural colour underneath, this looks SO natural.  But the BEST thing is with this method of lightening, the regrowth is SO manageble.  You can get away with touch ups every 8-12 weeks and don’t get that ‘step’ of roots like when you go all over one colour. 

Can you tell I’m a highlight addict? 😛

Congrats on loosing the weight!!!!

PS: thought I would post as couple of photos. The first is my hair now and the ‘inspiration’ photo of Ms. Klum

I say do it: I’ve always loved that cut!

My only advice if you are going to go completely blonde is to make sure you get a good conditioner and/or treatment…blonde can really fry your hair, even when done right, because it’s just so many chemicals. Also, make sure to pick up some purple shampoo so it doesn’t go brassy 🙂

The haircut would look great on you!  Maybe a warmer color base with blond highlights.

I wouldn’t go completely blonde mostly because its a pain in the ass. My hair IS blonde, medium/light blonde naturally and I’ve dyed my whole head light, light blonde in the past and it made my roots look black and I had to get it touched up all the time, which isn’t cheap. Also, your hair will get brassy and you’ll occasionally need highlights over the all-over color which is expensive. It will look pretty on you, just beware of all the pain-in-the-ass things that come with being a fake blonde.
