I have a very similar colour and when I felt the same way as you I went ahead and got very natural highlights and lowlights. Only do this with a hairdress you 100% trust because it can go wrong – they can make you to blonde very easily!

Here is a pic of my hair on my wedding day! You can see how the highlights and lowlights just give the hair a little more dimension.

I second the highlights if you decide to do something. You have a beautiful natural color that people pay out the ying yang for. A little dimension with highlights would be gorgeous.

I really love your natural hair color, it’s beautiful! I vote keep it, but in the end it’s your choice 🙂

i love your natural color also, but if you are concerned and DO want to lighten it up, all you need is some highlights. Subtle ones to add some more blonde. 🙂

I agree with PPs, your natural hair is beautiful and I wouldn’t change it. If you really feel like you need to subtle highlights would be the way to go.

My hair is darker than yours, but I have natural high lights and never wanted to touch it. However, when my hair is in an updo I think it loses all the dimension so I did a ‘trial’ high/low lights before Christmas and I love it. It’s so subtle that I don’t need to keep up with it and only one person has noticed (my mom didn’t even realize it). So I’m going to do it again before the wedding and then let it grow out.

I like your color, but it you want more dimension I would go for it. Just make sure your stylist understands what you’re going for!

@Bichon Frise: Thanks! It’s barely noticable when it grows out – I let it grow it out A LOT before I re-do it! It kinda looks the same as when your natural summer highlights grow out. I probably only get them done 2-3 times a year and I usually have 3-4 inches of “roots” by the time I go back to get it re-done!

Let me know if you have any questions!

I have always been a natural blonde too (darker than yours, though), and I started highlighting at a really young age because I love having lots of different tones in my hair. If you’re nervous about doing something drastic, you may want to see a colorist you trust and ask about getting a glaze. It’s an all-over color, but it’s not permanent, and it’s not heavy. I always get a glaze after getting highlights and low lights, or just a glaze by itself if I feel like I need a little boost. It’s a really easy way to transition to trying our hair color 🙂 Good luck!!

I had my hairdresser put some lowlights & highlights in for the big day! My natural color is a light ashy blond that turns platinum during the summer.

I also really like your natural hair color. I don’t think it looks blah at all!  Although summery-looking highlights or a “wash” might give you the effect you are looking for.

I never really liked the texture my hair changes to after I get any chemical processing done to it, but I’m pretty happy with my hair color too (chocolate brown).  The only thing I’d like to see it with is some dark red lowlights, but I’m much too chicken to try it out!
