"My stylist and best friend is AMAZING with natural styles. I told her I wanted something classy, like oldHollywood glam, and she took it from there.

We went through a LOT of options and styles on a mood board."

There are many different ways to style natural hair for a wedding, and the best option for you will depend on your personal preferences and the overall aesthetic you want to create on your big day. Here are a few ideas to consider:


  1. Updo: An updo is a classic wedding hairstyle that works well for natural hair. You can create a variety of updos, such as a bun, twist, or braided style, using your natural curls or coils.

  2. Half-up, half-down: If you want to show off your curls but still want some of your hair down, you can try a half-up, half-down style. This can be achieved by pulling the top half of your hair back and securing it with pins or a hair accessory, while leaving the rest of your hair down.

  3. Braids: Braids are a popular choice for natural hair, and they can be incorporated into many different styles. For example, you could create a braided updo or add braids to a half-up, half-down style.

  4. Afro: If you have a full afro, you can showcase your natural curls by wearing your hair in its natural state. This can be a bold and beautiful choice for a wedding.

No matter which style you choose, it's important to take care of your natural hair leading up to the wedding day. This may involve deep conditioning, regular moisturizing, and protective styling to keep your curls looking their best. It's also a good idea to work with a stylist who is experienced in working with natural hair to help you achieve the look you want.
