It should be ok, but make sure you let the stylist know you’ve used box dye, because the hair will process differently. Also be prepared to hear multiple times how bad box dye is.

A good salon should let you set up a free consultation so you can discuss what you’re hoping to achieve with the stylist and they can give you an idea of whether or not it’s realistic 🙂 I went from box-dyeing my hair BLACK for years (eek!) to getting my colour professionally done for a little bit until that was properly broken, and it made a huge difference. If you’re sticking fairly close to your original shade, I can’t imagine it would be an issue – but definitely set up a consult first.

I would not do it a week before your wedding. If something goes wrong there won’t be enough time to fix it and/or make a new plan. If you have a routine with boxed dye that works I’d stick to it!

I actually totally agree with alwayssunny. If you are happy with your current situation and just switching it up for a change, I’d go after the wedding when the stakes are lower.

Most colours from a hair dresser would be better, however you cannot always guarantee what the colour will look like depending on the experience of the stylist. I would not do it so close to the wedding for a first try! Some colours on my hair  do not turn out like my stylist expected. I am pretty flexible with my colour and it has never looked bad but not always as we thought!
