Here is my natural hair color. I actually just took this photo today in pretty good lighting, so I’m happy you can see it’s true color (long story why I’m in a bathing suit). I plan on doing the exact same hair style (Kate Hudson) below for my wedding.. but I’ve also been contemplating putting some highlights or something in it to lighten it up like the color of hers. What do you all think? Change it or leave it?

It would look good either way, but I’d probably leave it! The whole natural look is AWESOME, and since you’ve got such a pretty colour already I wouldn’t want to mess with it 🙂

@wynnetaylorwedding: could be risky. run it by Fiance.

Without a doubt, I’m going to say DO NOT DO IT. Your hair is so naturally beautiful, and it’s also obviously natural (with that translucent ash quality). Anyone can dye their hair blond and have it look good but obviously dyed. Hair as naturally beautiful and light as yours is so rare that it seems ridiculous to me to want to dye it and look like every other bleach blond.
(Note, no offsense to the bleach blondes; I’ve spent many happy years on and off bleach blond!)

I say add some highlights. My natural color is about like yours and I think some highlights are flattering to that color/lighter skin.

I think you should leave it– your hair nice as is
I have to agree with kbtobe:

Kate Hudson’s hair looks more obviously dyed– with the darker roots, but I think yours in the same syle with have more depth and natural highlights when it is arranged like hers

I would go for it but I’msued to dying my hair and know who it will turn out generally. If you’re used to it, then definitely try it! I think some highlights would be lovely and not too crazy/different from what you have currently.

I should add that if you dye it, I’m sure it will look really good. I just think it will be more generic.
Also, I liked RedFeather’s comment that with similar styling, your hair should pick up some nice depth too.

@wynnetaylorwedding: You are stunning, lady! I really like your natural hair colour, but I think that having your stylist add subtle highlights would help draw more focus to your face (especially those gorgeous eyes). I think the key is making sure they are weaved as naturally as possible, and that way it won’t look harsh or fake.
Her original colour is actually pretty close to yours, and I think her hair now still looks beautiful.

I think it would look good either way, but personally I would leave it the way it is. You already have a gorgeous hair color, and it suits your skin tone really well. My hair is a little bit lighter than yours naturally, and I find that dirty blondes and blondes tread on a fine line of what works and what doesn’t. For the longest time I thought my camera was terrible because my dyed hair always showed up yellow in pictures, and it totally washed out my already fair skin. I realized it was because my stylist was dying it golden blonde instead of ash blonde. It made a huge difference once she put ashy highlights in my hair, and now after an entire year it is finally growing out to be my natural color. I think at the end of the day natural is always better because it is usually the color that goes with your skin tone.

GORGEOUS Hair !!
It is a risk for sure… but not a drastic change
(I dropped in on this topic cause I had my own hair dyed before the Wedding… and went quite a bit darker. It worked out ok… but it was a HUGE difference from my usual look / colour that I had had for about 5 years)
I think that the highlights could add some nice dimension to your hair / look… and draw out your features as another Bee said
BUT I wouldn’t go the DIY route, or even to any run of the mill salon for this (with the Wedding on the Horizon)… I’d be looking for a top notch place for the best advice possible with a Senior Stylist… (such as a Salon that carries Schwarzkopf products)
Sure it will cost more… but the results should also be better too. I mean it is YOUR HAIR and a major part of your Wedding Look. You spend ump-teen dollars on your Dress & Accessories, don’t try to “cheat” on your hair.
Hope this helps,

I would add highlights for sure, it’s lovely as it is don’t get me wrong but highlights will add depth to it.

Too risky! Especially since you already have beautiful hair.

I would do it! it will add some dimension and make the style look more polished overall. Everyone looks a little better with highlights!
Although I must say, your hair will be gorgeous either way!
