Natural Bridal Wedding Hairstyles

We love seeing brides glow with their natural crowns! Many women tell us that they've been talked out of wearing their natural hair for fear it won't look good on the big day. Unfortunately, afro hair has long been labelled as unattractive, unprofessional and unmanageable. Despite the natural hair movement, mainstream media still presents kinks and curls as something to be hidden or straightened for important events. We believe natural hair is glamorous, elegant, classy and beautiful.    Joycelyn and Rachael on their wedding days   Many of us wear our natural hair on a regular basis so wearing a straight style on our wedding days could be contradictory to our personal looks.
