Every soon-to-be bride spends endless days working out the ways to look stunning and radiant on her wedding day. Many brides even go for hair colouring to stand out from the crowd on their D-day. But remember, this colour choice will stay with you a long time after your wedding as well. So, if you are thinking about experimenting with hair colours to give yourself a cool and whacky edge, here are some important points that will help you chose the right colour for your hair.

Your skin colour and shades of makeup
The most obvious consideration has got to be your skin colour. And in addition, it is vital to also consider the shades that you use for your regular makeup. The fair-skin women who use shades of subtle pinks, browns and reds for makeup always look nice in blonde highlights, natural browns, medium reds or caramel colours. People with a darker skin tone may want to experiment with a single or double streak of dark red or brown like mahogany, toffee, maple brown and other warm shades.
You may not really consider your profession while selecting a hair colour for your wedding day. But you are eventually going to join your office after your honeymoon, right? So, you wouldn’t want to hold a meeting in your office or a presentation for your business clients with a perky pink or golden hair streak (that was to match your bridal outfit). While for some professions, the colour of your hair may not be a big deal for certain others it might be so. So, keep your daily activities in mind while choosing the colour.
A lot of women are very conscious of how and what their dressing and look conveys about them to the others. For people who do get into such details, must choose their hair colour after giving it a good thought. On your wedding day you will have a lot of eyes scrutinising you closely. If you think you would want the others to perceive you as a strong and an outgoing woman, going in for strong contrasts to your natural colour and heavy streaks would be good. However, if you like to stay away from the attention, go in for subtle highlights and natural shades.
Hair texture and hair style
If you have frizzy hair, do not go for contrasting highlights or blonde colours. They are bound to put the spotlight on your frizzy ends. If you have nice and thick curls, going in for very dark and contrasting shades to your natural colour will add to the bounce of your hair and make them look voluminous. On the other hand, going in for similar colours will make them look messy. So, consult your hairstylist about your hair texture and style before taking the plunge.
Quality of water to wash your hair
Anything on you that is not naturally yours may always have the scope of little damage, if not huge. When getting your hair coloured, if you think you bathe with hard water and cannot do much about it, try sticking to colours that match your natural hair colour. The more you go away from the original shades, the more evident it will be for others to see the colour wearing off after a little time.
Word for first timers
If this is your first time experimenting with hair colours then do not go for permanent colouring. Stick to a semi-permanent colour. Other than this, it is best to follow a thumb rule: always go two to three shades away from your natural colour, not more than that. Also, brides-to-be should keep in mind not only their bridal outfit but also the dresses that you will be wearing for the other ceremonies.
