    iamali:  yea that definitely looks more like an ombre. I voted to get hair toned to look more natural because I feel like if your hair didn’t come out how you wanted it dyed, you will be disappointed having a much lighter color take over your hair for your wedding. Or you could ask if they can dye the extensions to match your multicolor ends if you have it toned. I would probably get a second opinion from someone who is more familiar with bayalage.

    I would dye it back to your natural colour, do subtle highlights, and get extentiosn to match your natural colour with the highlights.

    Well if they can’t tone it, they would need to colour correct.  It is very warm, and your pic is quite cool.  You need ashy to get to your inspiration.  So they would prob foil the highlights and then colour correct the area outside of that, and  then tone the highlights.  It would be a bit of a process, but I have done similar when I feel like I have gotten too blond.  Your hair looks like they processed all of you ends?  They need to break that up quite a lot.  Did they backcomb at all, before bleaching that out?

    iamali:  Sorry, I know I’m a little late to the party, but I just wanted to second jcent’s vote for  addition of ashy tones.

    My hair was very similar to yours – I had been trying to grow out some old balayage (which actually looked more like ombré after being lifted even more recently by the sun) as I wanted to return to a more natural look for my wedding day. Today my hairdresser put ash brown foils throughout the lengths to break the lightness up… And it worked! I still have a little lightness through the ends, but it looks much more natural now. I too am having extensions and my hairdresser will match them to my roots not my ends. I hope that helps? X

    Get a fresh trim with a nice tonal dye and gloss. – Extensions will look cheap and ultra fake if you don’t drop like a grand on them!

    Maybe try a different salon.  Good extensions can match an ombre or a biolage look…and your hair should look how YOU want it for your wedding. A good hair dresser would absolutely be able to get your hair and extensions to look like the photo you posted.  I’ve had extensions of every color and variety and I’ve colored them also.  (not me personally—the salon colored them to match)

    I think having extensions to match your hair, especially if it’s two-toned like that will be quite difficult to achieve. I think you’d do a lot better with just re-dyeing your hair a more natural tone and getting a trim to make your hair look more healthy.
