Natural Hair Brides...what are you doing with your hair??

I have super tightly coiled, short natural hair with unbelievable shrinkage and have no idea what to do with my hair on the day. I typically do twist outs by myself, but wanted to try something different! I’m getting married in Boca Raton in June so I’m not sure how long a twist out, blow out, or anything will last in the humidity! Please post pics of ideas if you have them!

    Following. Been debating this myself, I have hired a natural hairstylist and makeup artist for the wedding, so she can do whatever. We've discussed doing a Brazilian Blowout to straighten and style it easier. I don't know though cause I am planning on doing an updo, so I am not sure it would matter much to straighten it. Here are a few styles I am looking at - https://pin.it/sqsdyyhq3e6ssu. I sm scanning pinterest for more ideas.

    I’ll most likely get a silk press and then have it styled in an updo. Fortunately, my wedding is in November so I shouldn’t have an issue with the temperature and humidity. Honestly, I would suggest hiring a natural hair stylist and/or adding extra hair for length and drama. There are a few easy solutions here. Don’t stress too much about it. Also, check out Pinterest for some ideas.

    Also, if you don’t want to straighten your hair but still want length, look into textures clip ins. This is just one example of many: https://www.betterlength.com/

    I am undecided. But, lately I've been thinking about cutting my hair. It's so hard to decide!

    I read this blog for inspiration. I’m thinking of adding clips ins if my hair isn’t the length I would like it to be by our wedding date.

    Being a natural girl with locs I understand. How about these ideas. https://pin.it/kvtkq6w7vayi2w
    Still looks natural, your hair is protected and it’s gorgeous without the risk of humidity messing it up! Or if u want to use your hair https://pin.it/fzoef7ts4jobnq and can add some for effect. Good luck to you and congratulations!

    I'm going with a similar look to this photo. I have really tight curls. This style will also look great with my dress and veil.

    I was thinking of getting a sewin with an updo! But this weekend.... I discovered gold! I’ve been debating on relaxing my hair because my tight ringlets are driving me crazy every wash day. My hair has gotten sooo long that I can’t do anything with it. I found out about this at-home keratin treatment and it has changed my life. My hair is silky and manageable. It’s called Uncurly and I highly recommend it!

    I had my trial sew-in 2 weeks ago....It was perfect. BUT...to tight and I couldnt get my natural hair to match the weave when I washed it. I took it out.


    I am either gonna do the sew in or ask if clip ins can get the same look.

    I'm getting married in July with a rooftop ceremony and cocktail hour. We'll also take a bunch of outdoor pics. It's crazy humid here, so I'm thinking I'll stick with a low chignon type of style. I love the sleek look here as well as Natural Chica's wedding hair. I would love to wear my hair out, but it's too temperamental in the humidity.

    I thought it would be impossible to find a proper hairstyle for a wedding since my natural hair is kinda unruly. But, girls, when I started my searches, it turned out to be an easy task. Found some really good ideas among these updos designed specifically for natural hair Smiley love Crown braid is my favorite))

    I think natural hair is great. You can simply straighten your hair and choose a pretty tiara or barrette. Natural shine is great
