Wedding Hairstyles For Long Curly Hair Updos

If you’ve ever looked for curly hairstyles online, you may have noticed something funny: curly wedding hairstyles, it would seem, are not actually for girls with curly hair. Almost all of them are straight hairstyles in disguise. Which is why for so many naturally curly-haired girls, formal hairstyles can be a nightmare. First there’s the “let’s just pile it all on top of your head and call it an updo” technique. Then there’s the “let’s blow-dry your hair straight only to re-curl it” routine that leaves you praying to God no moisture comes within a ten-foot radius of your body. And if you’re lucky, you won’t end up with a bad ’90s prom do with those two godforsaken tendrils hanging down (why, stylists, why?).

Curly wedding hairstyles are among the most popular nowadays. Did you know that in ancient Greece curly hair was associated with a special attitude towards life – love of freedom, activeness, and purposefulness?

Welcome, curly-haired sister! If you’re just getting started, I’d recommend Naturally Curly and Curly Girl as some good starting points. If you’re planning to transition to No-Poo from shampoo, I’d recommend giving it a month or so to transition and then finding a stylist through Naturally Curly’s directory. A curly haired stylist can help you find the best cut, styling products, and techniques to work with your individual curl pattern. Best of luck!

Absolutely not washing too frequently is key, as is embracing that everyone’s hair is different in terms of what it takes to refresh your curly in between washes. For me, I know that generally I need a mist of very diluted “beach hair”/ “sea salt” type spray and some gentle scrunching with my hands to refresh my style and that I lay a good foundation for that refresh by using moisturizing and defining products when I do wash. Also, as someone who works out regularly (nearly daily) and sweats a ton, I’ve also learned that the key to not washing after those workouts is twofold: an absorbent headband that I wear during class, then taking it off immediately after, arranging my hair and letting it dry, occasionally depending on the weather and how much I sweat, I might need to add a little product. When it gets icky is when I mess with it during class or afterwards. Personally, I love Kevin Murphy’s products for my fine, curly, short hair. I use the Killer Curls defining creme or Motion Lotion on my damp hair after washing it, then some Anti-Gravity spray for a bit of volume, then if as I’m drying it’s not quite right I add some Hair Resort (I prefer the spray). I use a diluted version of the Hair Resort spray to refresh on non-wash days.

One problem with natural curly hair and perm curls is their excessive volume and bulkiness. For this reason, if you want to succeed with your wedding hairstyle for natural curls, you should, first of all, consider simple updos and downdos, for example, like the one you see in this photo. It will be a great fit for wedding looks of African American women with black kinky hair.

All of the love for those first few paragraphs. I ended up DIYing my hair because of my fear of most stylists. (I was on a TV show several years ago and arrived on-set “camera ready,” and the first thing the celebrity hair stylist did was say, “The problem with curly hair is it’s never uniform” before raking his fingers through my hair. He employed the re-curl it technique.) I actually didn’t have a great hair day for our wedding, but at least I didn’t spend a couple of hundred dollars to possibly have an even worse one. I actually do the #7 style on my hair pretty frequently and always get tons of compliments on it. It’s not too difficult, and the rope twists work so much better than braids. They’re easier and stand out better for super dark hair.

Yassss. So many people tried to talk me out of going curly for my wedding. I’m so happy I didn’t listen. I DIY’d (well, my friend helped) my unruly curls for my August beach wedding last year. Finished my natural curls with a curling iron and some intense smoothing serum, and though I ended up slightly frizzy by the end of the night, I did not look like a total puff in photos. I talked with my hairdresser a few weeks in advance, and she gave me tips on which products to use for my hair, which curling wand to use for finishing so it wouldn’t look unnatural, and she helped me decide how to place my halo. I’m not someone who ever thought they would wear a headpiece for my wedding (I’m not someone who ever thought they would have a wedding), but I found one I could rent, and decided to go with it because it would keep the top of my hair under control/keep me from playing with my hair all night. Plus I loved it. I highly recommend embracing the curl for your wedding!
