I did my first big chop within the last few months and now I have absolutely no idea what the heck to do with my hair for our engagement shoot next week or our wedding in February. Did you guys stay natural or get fully dolled up?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Obviously I really can’t give full advice, but you’re an absolutely beautiful woman, you could easily go natural or go to your stylist and have her give you a super cute style for photos

    Maybe a cute headband? Have you looked up natural hair engagement pics?

    Thank you! Smiley catface But that's my issue. I've never really paid attention to any hairstyles pertaining to my current length and texture because I've never had. I have no idea what would look good for my face if I stay natural. I wouldn't even know what to give her for a reference.

    YES! And the internet hates me lol. Maybe I'm overthinking but I haven't really seen any that I care for (not that there's really many to look at to begin with). Unless I'm missing something.

    You're over thinking lol. But I get it, you want things to be perfect. I would say just go big on make up and some nice accessories and that could work.

    Thanks for that. I've actually come across these but wasn't too sure. I don't really care for the 2nd one but I love the 1st and 3rd. Before I chopped my hair, the 3rd is how my hair was for the most part but I'm trying to stay away from straightening it. The 1st one I feel like it wouldn't really look the same since her hair is curly and mine is more coarse.

    LMAO!! My mom says the same thing about me. I'll see if I can make something work though lol. The only thing I have is chapstick. That is the extent of my make up lmao.

    Thank you! I really appreciate it. I'll be sure to look some up. It didn't even really hit me until today like damn. I really have 5 days before our photos are taken. Hopefully I can find something quick and not look crazy lol.

    I was thinking along these lines but there's no way I can get those naturally in the next 5 days lmao. My stylist was talking about getting something like a jheri curl but then she mentioned chemical and I'm like well wouldn't that defeat the purpose of me going natural??

    I would say go to mac or sephora. I know if you buy $50 of product at Sephora in make up they'll do your make up for free. I think get some earrings that pop, cute head gear if you want like a bow or something, a nice necklace that matches the earrings and maybe a little on the big side. I would say you could keep natural and do some golds for your skin tone which looks good on brown skin and maybe have the lipstick stand out??

    I think a cute headband but maybe add some type of oil or sheen to make it shine and pick it out?

    Damn $50 for stuff I'll most likely never use again?? Maybe I'll sell it afterward lol. I'd have to re-pierce my ears lol. I don't mind having a lipstick that stands out. I prefer a much more natural look anyway cause I'm not the most confident wearing a vibrant face.
