Weddings are a special day for every woman. You have your perfect dress that flatters your body, your makeup that emphasises your best features and you need a hairstyle that brings everything together. As a black woman you want to play with your natural hairs features such as curls or extensions if you have shorter coarse hair. Make sure that you have a trial run before the big day so that you are absolutely certain it’s the right hairstyle. Here are some glamorous wedding hairstyle idea’s that work great for black women.
Slicked Back Bun on your Wedding Day
If you are seeking a more traditional updo for your wedding then try a sleek and slicked back updo. We know that this is kind of vague because there are so many options. From high and simple topknots to a voluminous pompadour bun or a sleek low bun there are so many options. These photos should help you decide if you want a sleek updo knot or not – and inspire some ideas.
Ponytails are simple and chic and complement a large variety of wedding dresses. This hairstyle is low maintenance, soft, feminine and ultra romantic. Keep the ponytail low and curl the ends and use a glamorous ponytail holder to kick this hairstyle up a notch. Part and style to the side or leave the ponytail in the back.
Updo’s a wedding-day favorite and there is no question as to why. This elegant and gorgeous look. However, if you don’t want the super sleek look but rather a softer and more relaxed updo than opt for a tousled updo with floral accessories that tie in hair to your dress.
Natural and Down
A lot of black women naturally have flawless curls and there is nothing more beautiful than that natural look. You don’t have to do much to your hair to have a hairstyle that embraces who you are and looks beautiful. You might need to do some teasing and mind your curls. Add some clips and headbands to style your curls if you choose.
Braids are a great option for every lady on her wedding day. Black women have so many options for braided bridal hair that it can be hard to narrow it down. From micro braided to crown braids and soft braids with long curls the options are infinite. Here are a few that we absolutely adore.
Half Up Half Down
Another versatile look is half-up and half-down. This look is perfect for women with V-neck, spaghetti strap, halter or strapless dresses. A great option for black women is to push the front of your hair back and create plenty of volume and leave the down part soft with loose texture.
