A Guide to African American Wedding Hairstyles

 African American Wedding Hairstyles

Today we are discussing about African American Wedding Hairstyles, As a woman of African-American descent, you have huge number of choice for styling your hair. While deciding on one, please keep in mind that the hairdo should not cause discomfort during the long wedding day celebration. Pick one that represents the unique woman you are. Here are some guidelines that will help you make the right choice:

Your choices for a hairdo: 

  • Double stranded twist
  • Dreadlocks
  • Flow weaves
  • Braids
  • Cornrows
  • Classic twist

To start with, decide on your overall look. To do that think of the answers to the following:

  • Do I want my hair open or tied up?
  • Should I go with a tight do or a loose hairdo?
  • Will I be comfortable with extra hair pieces glued or sewn in?
  • Do I want to go with braids?
  • What is my budget for the hairdo?

Once you have answered these questions, you are well on your way to planning your look.

Skip the usual pitfalls

Remember that your pictures of your special day are going to be around forever and you want to feel good about having them around and looking at them. Given below are some of the things you can avoid to avert a hair disaster:

• Don’t go by celebrity styles just because they are the hit of the season; they may not suit you. Moreover deviating too much from your usual style may make you feel uncomfortable and this will reflect on your face.
• Do not let others’ opinions sway you. You are the one who knows best about what suits you and giving in to the pressure of well-meaning friends can end up in disastrous results. Always seek opinions from pals you can trust to give you their correct opinion.

Keeping it simple:

• If you are going for an extra braid, hairpiece or accessory remember not to go overboard. First of all you are going to be the focus of attention on your special day, plus you will also have a veil on your face. Adding too many things to your head will only add to the burden and make you the point of much discussion.

• If you are going for a rather understated gown, then you can balance it with a gorgeous and intricate hairdo. You can always pick up Custom Designed Hair Pieces & Accessories from Beauloni.

Not the time to attempt self styling 

Your special day is no time to start thinking of stinting on expenses. In fact trying to do it yourself will cost you more in terms of disastrous results. Imagine a bad highlighting, braids, weaves or coloring job! It is best to go with experts even if you are used to styling your own hair. Your time is better spent relaxing and concentrating on other details. Go to your regular stylist; if you do not have one your friends can suggest somebody.

Try it once before the actual ceremony

Visit your stylist at least 4 weeks before the actual ceremony. Take a trusted friend with you. Ensure that you have your veil and wedding hair accoutrements with you. Ask your stylist to style your hair around these. Also consult with her/him on a simple but effective way to keep the hairdo looking good all day long on the day of your wedding.
