I wanted to share my bridal hair experience with you and all of your devoted readers in hopes that this may help some brides to be. First let me say, I was natural for nearly five years when I got married in March 2010, but still found it somewhat difficult to find that “perfect” style. I love my natural hair but it proved to be immensely challenging to find a hair style that would both compliment my wedding gown and display the natural glory of my hair. Mainly due to the fact that I found only limited material available to draw inspiration from.
My other challenge was with the people in my life that would ask, ever so politely “what are you going to do with your hair, dear?” As if my natural hair needed some sort of polishing or couldn’t possibly hold up to the formal occasion. However those those who were closest to me, pretty much knew that whatever style I chose, my hair would be worn in all it’s natural glory! The difficulty was with pairing a natural style with my wedding gown and other accessories. I was very thankful to have a stylist that I trusted help me design a style that would work great for me on my very special day. And with out a second thought, she traveled with me from Texas to Florida for my destination wedding! I am sharing my story with you and your readers in hopes that other brides to be out there will know without a doubt that it is possible to wear their hair natural on their wedding day and be the beautiful bride that they have always dreamed they would be.
Thanks for all the hard work you put into your blog and for creating a forum for natural girls to meet and share information and ideas regarding the topic of natural and curly hair. Keep up the good work and God bless you and your family.
