A woman’s hair is her crowning glory, the ultimate expression of her femininity. Your wedding day is therefore the perfect occasion to put your best foot forward in the hair department. There are lots of hairstyles to choose from, but you need to settle for something that complements both your unique individual style and your wedding gown. Here are a few ideas:
Braids are a favorite among brides due to their longevity. You can keep the braids after the wedding and enjoy a stress free honeymoon hairdo. Braids are either done in twist or box design, with variations in size and styling. Experiment with braid designs in the months leading up to your wedding and find a particular style that suits your face shape and veil.
Corn rows are also popular for their extended value. It’s a simple but stylish hairdo that goes well with African themed weddings. To find the right style for you, browse through hair forums for unique designs. You can also add hair extensions to the cornrows for a more chic look.
Weaves add a sophisticated touch to your bridal ensemble. They give your hair volume and bounce and even allow you to try a different hair color without dyeing your own locks. There are synthetic and human hair weaves available for all budgets so don’t be afraid to look into this option for your big day.
For the natural hair sisters, you can still rock your luscious tresses with pride on your wedding day. However, you need to find a look that is different from your everyday hair style. Experiment with bantu knots, twist outs, straw sets, faux locks and up-dos depending on your hair length and type.
Dreadlocks are also a trendy look you should consider. If you already have locks, there are plenty of styling options that will make them look more distinctive than usual. For those with relaxed or natural hair, you can also get faux locks put in for that special event.
Whatever hair style you opt for, the key to looking stunning is to wear it confidently and to get bridal accessories that will complement the hair.
