On deciding the perfect hairstyle for my special day, going with the
look I did was a no brainer. As someone who's always donned their
natural curls and coils. I knew that an elegant, natural hair style was
the best fit for me.
I wanted to make sure that the natural hair style I chose could last all day and throughout the entire honeymoon.
My wedding day hairstyle was inspired by my everyday look, but a bit
more glam. I was fortunate that my hairstylist was also a long time
friend. We worked very well together. She met with me a few weeks prior
to the wedding for a trial
session. At that time, we went through variations of the style to
figure out the final look.
My hair was done the day before the wedding to save time, as I opted for
smaller twists. My hair was washed, conditioned, and slightly blow-dried
for quick drying right before styling. My goal was to have my hair
washed the day before styling,
but it all worked out in the end. No extensions were used. I used an
oil mix and cantu shea butter leave-in conditioning repair cream for styling and
I wore my style the week following the wedding for the honeymoon. I
received tons of compliments and most importantly, my husband loved my
hair. My advice for brides-to-be: It is extremely important for
brides to have a trial session(s) with their hairstylist weeks
prior to their wedding ceremony. This is your time to figure out what
you want and definitely what you
don’t want for your hair the day of your wedding. Doing so will help to
minimize some of the unwanted surprises that day.
