Wedding Hairstyles For African-American Women


It's always a top priority for any woman to look good at a wedding, whether they are the bride or a guest. This same kind of standard should always apply to your hair. Here are some interesting hairstyles that you can take on for the big day:


BRAIDED SIDE BUN
This is a beautiful-looking side bun that can truly enhance your formal outfit. Here's how you can make your own:
*Begin by parting your hair on the side that you prefer it to be on
*Section part of the hair into a triangle to create side bangs
*Smooth the hair to the side that you prefer it to be on
*Use your choice of finishing spray, making sure that the hair maintains a full hold
*Recommended products for use with this hairstyle: light sheen from the Olive Oil product line to help enhance shine
*Best face shape and hair type for this hairstyle: any face shape, long/straight hair
*Other tips: add straight extensions to allow for a fuller bun with long and sturdy pins to help keep the bun itself in place

CURLED UPDO
Here is how you can create this particular style, which focuses on pinned-up curls:
*Part your hair to the side that you prefer it to be on and smooth it out
*Using a one-inch curling iron, curl out the rest of the hair before pinning them up as desired
*Use your preferred choice of hair serum to add shine
*Recommended products for use with this hairstyle: sealing serum from the Matrix Essentials line of products
*Best face shape and hair type for this hairstyle: any face shape, straight medium or long hair
*Other tips: rub a small amount of the Matrix Essentials serum in the palm of your hand and begin working the product into your scalp

ROYAL HIGH SIDE BUN
This is the process that is involved when creating this particular hairstyle, in which high side buns with sweeping bangs are what will draw the most attention:
*In the interior of your head, section out a rectangle-shaped amount of hair
*Using a 1 1/2-inch gold barrel iron, style your bangs however you choose
*Smooth out the remainder of your hair to the side that you prefer it to be on
*Section out a ponytail and braid it before twisting it into a bun
*Use your favorite hairspray, ensuring that the hair maintains a light hold
*Recommended products for use with this hairstyle: any type of gel from the Eco-Styler line of products
*Best face shape and hair type for this hairstyle: oval-shaped faces, straight medium or long hair
*Other tips: if you find that the gel you use is drying your hair, consider investing in Pure African Shea Cream, which is a leave-in conditioner. This will lock in moisture before you apply the gel.

CLASSIC BRIDAL BUN
This style focuses on the traditional type of bridal hair bun, and can be created by following these steps:
*Section various triangle bangs out of your hair
*Pull only one piece of hair on each side of the pulled bangs
*Smooth out the remainder of your hair into a single ponytail
*Using a 1-inch curling iron, curl the entire ponytail before pinning any desired curls
*Use a firm-hold hairspray to help keep the hair in place
*Recommended products for use with this hairstyle: any product from the Sebastian Fierce Shaper line
*Best face shape and hair type for this hairstyle: any face shape, smooth hair
*Other tips: Add a curly extension around the ponytail and hold it in place with bobby pins, but only if you want to maintain a fuller type of bunType your paragraph here.
