Plenty Natural Bridal Hairstyles: No Excuses Not to Get Married in Your Fro

Ever since the most black women of African roots started embracing their God-given hair in it’s natural kinky texture, we are seeing more Nigerian/ African and African-American brides rocking natural hair bridal styles to their wedding. Yes, even brides with relaxed permed hair are wearing natural hair-style bridal hairstyles (thanks to extensions).  We are all here for it! Doing the big chop and transitioning are natural hair lingo that we believe aren’t going anywhere soon.

Our Nigerian hairstylists have become so good at styling many types of natural hair styles, including kinky hair versions for wedding updos and downdos, as well as half-up and half-down wedding hairstyles.  The styles are so many and gorgeous that there’s no more an excuse to not rock your hair natural at your Nigerian wedding, if you’ve been wearing it natural.

You ask, What If…? Our Answers: About the Featured Natural Hair Bridal Hairstyles for Nigerian White Wedding

But I have short hair… There are many wedding-worthy short hairstyles for the Nigerian/ African woman.  Even the long bridal hairstyles can be done on any hair length – short or long hair (shhh! with the aid of natural hair attachment weaves and extensions).

But I Don’t think there are Natural Hair Stylists near me… Gone are the days when it was difficult to find natural hair salons in Nigeria.  These days, many good hairstylists exist who know how to create any type of look or wedding hair style with the 4C or any type black women hair.


Tips: When Looking for a Good Hairdresser for Your Natural Hair Wedding Hairstyle

It can be hard to find a good hairstylist that does bridal hairstyles well, but it is possible.  Most Nigerian hairdressers are better with styling permed hair.  However, you can make it easier for your hairdresser if you show him/ her a picture of the wedding hair look you want.

There are now plenty wedding-worthy bridal natural hairstyle options for Nigerian women with natural (4c type kinky coily) hair. …thanks to our talented Nigerian and African hairdressers. If you’re planning your Nigerian white wedding look, you should find a natural bridal hairstyle you like, to show your hairdresser.

Not every hairdresser or hair-stylist is skilled at handling and manipulating the 4c type kinky coily hair texture that most Nigerian women have. Therefore, ensure to find someone who does.  If you ask them, most hairstylists will say they can do natural hair styles. The best way to find the right hairdresser for your natural hair wedding hairstyle is to ask people to recommend good natural hair hairdressers they have tried.

You can also find good wedding hairstylists online / Instagram, using our tips detailed in a previous post.  Also ensure to do a trial hairstyling session before your wedding, to confirm that the stylist you picked can deliver on the wedding hair-style you choose.

I hope that the bridal natural hairstyles images above will inspire you with options to get married in your fro. So, what do you think?  Comment below to tell me – which of those natural hair wedding hairstyles is your favourite?
