What Options Do African-American Brides Have?

African-American brides have many different options that they can take advantage of, especially when they take the time to think about the kind of bride that they would like to be, whether it's traditional or glamorous. Whatever style the bride chooses, they will be able to successfully style their hair to help keep with the theme.

The next step involves exactly how you would want your hair worn. Do you want an updo or a downdo? Perhaps you'd prefer to do a half & half style? Either way, when you raise your hair up, you open up your face a lot more and essentially make it the main focal point of your entire look. Slap on some acceptable jewelry, and your look is totally complete.

Here are the top five African-American hairstyles for any wedding; however, these can also work for other nationalities such as Brazilian hair and Malaysian hair:

STUNNING UPDO FOR AFRO-TEXTURED SHORT LOOKS
No matter the length of your hair, whenever it contains curls, it always looks naturally beautiful. This is a style that works especially well for short to medium hair. All that is required is for the majority of the curls to be lifted up and pushed into the forehead.
 
SIMPLE AND ELEGANT WEDDING HAIRSTYLE FOR NATURAL HAIR
This is a style that works best with hair that is shorter in length, especially if it falls down and contains a wavy-type pattern that is rather distinct. Include a side pin as part of this look, as well as a cut for your coils that is nice and tapered.

NATURAL SUPER-SHORT WEDDING HAIRSTYLE
There are many brides who always feel that short hair for a wedding is nothing more than extremely challenging. However, the opposite is actually true. If you are a bride, you should showcase your short hairstyle rather than trying to hide it underneath your bridal veil.

BIG CURLY HAIR FOR A WEDDING
If you have hair that is naturally big and curly, you will want to ensure that you are wearing a wedding dress that is not similar in nature (i.e. large and puffy). The two simply do not harmonize together very well.

ASYMMETRIC NATURAL WEDDING HAIRSTYLE FOR SHORT HAIRIf your wedding gown is strapless and you have hair that is either short or medium in length, consider going with a hairstyle that is asymmetrical, as it can not only accentuate the shape of your face, but it can also accentuate the shape of your neck and shoulder line as well.
