Wedding styles for Natural Hair and locs


Every time I see a natural bride straighten out her gorgeous curls, or, worse yet, cover them with a weave or wig just for the sake of looking more "polished" or "feminine" for her wedding, a little piece of me dies inside. I've had Natural Hair for 16 years, loc'd for 12 of those years, but I'm still always on the lookout for new ways to style my hair, especially now that I'm getting married in May. But I understand how those who are new to the Natural Hair "movement" may be a little unsure of what to do with their hair on their wedding day. There are quite a few photos out there of curly natural hair styles, and I wanted to provide some inspiration for the loc'd ladies as well. So cancel that sew-in appointment, girl, and check out these 'dos:

Curled locs pulled up in the back and flat twisted in the front:

Side braid into a bun:
