Hair Colour help

I need to dye my hair before the wedding but I’m not sure what colour to dye it. My daughter thinks I should do a dark red. I’ve included a few of the hair colours I’m thinking of. Let me know your opinion. The first picture is me with close to the colour I have now.

    I went to my natural hair color like a chestnut light brown with blonde highlights, you will make the right choice good luck

    I used to dye my hair similarly to the last photo so I'm biased with that, but I'm sure whatever colour you choose will look great!

    It's hard to choose the best colour. However, I know you'd look gorgeous in whatever colour you choose. Just be confident in it and you should be okay, Michelle. Smiley smile

    I personally like the first or last picture you posted, I had a friend with your skin tone and the dark looked really nice. Though I would agree with the other girls, unfortunately in the summer it will lighten fast probably.

    I think I like the first pic the most, keep in mind I am very boring with my hair and have never had it coloured professionally.

    I agree with Brittany here!

    Having gone multiple shades of red and orange earlier in my life, I can definitely tell you that it fades fast and needs a lot of attention to maintain the vibrancy.

    Like Brittany said, you should try out a more vibrant option now and see how you like it and how it fades. If, in the end, you don't like it...then you'll have plenty of time to switch to a colour that's more like the third picture (my favorite, btw!).Smiley smile

    I think they would all look lovely. The only thing with going Red is it does fade fairly quickly, especially in summer. Which can be a blessing or a curse.

    Blessing, because if you go darker and do not like it, it should lighten substantially before the wedding. Curse because you are most likely going to have to get whatever you choose touched up atleast once or twice.

    If you are leaning towards darker, I would go sooner rather than later. That way you get to test it out now, and if you do not like it there is plenty of time for it to fade and to change it.

    Hi Michelle!

    I think you should pick whichever colour speaks to you/you like best - which one is your favourite?

    You could always try one out before the wedding and if you do not like it - you can pick another one. I'm doing this with my hair - I borderline want to try highlights instead of my balayage that I currently have and I'm going to test it out to see if I like it.

    I like the last 2 hair colours. Dark red wedding hair gives that sheen and glisten of earthy vibrant. Dark red hair is very subtle yet nice of a colour that will look good on you.

    It's hard to say what will look best - but if I had to pick I would say go for the 2nd last pic Smiley smile
