Do blonde brides have more fun? When you want to dye your hair in the weeks or months leading up to your wedding day, don't make the mistake of using boxed hair dye -- seek out a professional hairstylist to do the job instead. Even though boxed dyes come with detailed instructions, they don't take into consideration whether or not you've dyed your hair in the past or if you have damaged or healthy hair. Using the wrong dye could clash with your complexion, but more importantly, leaving dye on too long or applying it incorrectly could wreak havoc on your skin and hair. While you might be trying to save a little cash where your beauty budget is concerned, you could end up spending much more in the end with a salon trying to fix a botched job -- so don't take the risk! Besides, how often does the final hair color actually look like the image on the box cover, anyway?
