Natural Brides- Rania

This transitioning bride shined on her wedding day with a modified wash&go:

Hi Nikki,

I asked you earlier this year about suggestions for wedding hair since I am 6 months into transitioning. A lot of people strongly suggested I just straighten my hair and then style it, but I felt that would be cheating. I had NO clue what I was going to do, but I went to the stylist with a half flat-twist out in the front and a wash and go in the back (because my hair, although mostly relaxed, still curls quite a lot) and told her to style it however she could without adding heat or “smoothing it out.” And here are the final results!!! I loved my hair and I didn’t have to worry about rain, humidity (since the wedding was in Houston, TX) or sweating out my edges. I’m so glad I’m going natural and I’m even more glad I stayed true to myself and my hair for the most important day of my life. Hope you can use these pics to help inspire other natural brides!

    Hi, Anonymous!

    What I did was I flat twisted the front of my hair, stopping the twists at about the middle of my head. The back airdryed and I made sure the twists dried all the way too. (If they don't dry all the way, you'll get major frizzies). Also, I co-washed before and left a substantial amount of conditioner in for the styling (HH Totally Twisted, fyi). The stylist completed the look with a bejeweled head comb and gloss spray! Hope this helps!

    You looked Absolutely Beautiful….CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am also transitioning for the past 9 months and still have alot of permed ends left. However in less than a month will be in a wedding as a bridesmaid and I am clueless on how to wear my hair…I really am against heat…so I plan to go to a natural hair stylist…also I live in Houston= Horrible Humidity ;-( but hopefully all goes well…

    Congrats on your wedding and your hair looked fabulous! I, too am a transitioning bride to be and by the time of my wedding I will be 13 months in. I am definitely looking for inspiration as to what in the world I am going to do to my hair, and needless to say your choice of style is definitely inspiring. Can you give any directions as to how to accomplish the style you did? Unfortunately, I may have to go with good ole fashion straight and styled as my wedding is destination and I have no clue what stylist I may end up with (the style is a part of the wedding package). So whatever happens I am probably going to have to give the stylist loads of directions :-/

    Your hair and photos are pretty. That was quite the challenge for the stylist. But she did a great job.
