Rock it Out

Choosing to wear your hair out in its normal texture is not a crime. You’ll know what to expect and can use the time you’ll save worrying about one of the many other things happening on your wedding day. And if you’re not used to wearing your natural curls, check out this video to learn how to create the perfect wash and go for your hair type.


Flexi Rod Set

Natural wedding hairstyles without putting heat on your hair? It’s possible. Flexi rods are an inexpensive way that will get your hair just as curly, without risking heat damage.


Bold Braids

Some brides want their dress to steal the show on their wedding day, but why not let your hair be a top contender? This Frozen-inspired braid is perfect for all hair types–kinky or straight.


High Bun

If you want to know that your hair will stay put all day, a textured high (or low) bun is the way to go. But make sure to slick down your hair, natural wedding hairstyles like this look best when hair is slicked back.



Don’t worry, there will be no head shaving involved in this look, just lots of gel. If you’re an edgy bride who wants their personality to shine through, this is the natural hairstyle for you. Check out this 60 second tutorial and get started!


Pin Curls

Get curls with lots of hold without the heat damage. FabulousNat shows you how.


Kinky French Bun

This is a modern twist on an old classic. If your main goal on your wedding day is to dance the night away, then this is the natural hairstyle for you. It’ll be up and out of the way and a little gel and a few bobby pins will ensure the style stays in place. Visit here for step-by-step directions.


Twist Out

Looking to give your hair some added length? A braidout is a good solution. It will lengthen your hair, while still giving you wavy curls.


Faux Tapered Cut

Go short without cutting your hair (or if you’re a short haired girl, switch it up). This style will give you a small taste of the cut life without the full commitment.


Loc and Load

If you think having locs means you’re limited in natural hairstyles, think again! Let Franchesca Ramsey show you how to spruce up your locs for your big day.
