Question for fellow black brides Re: hair plans

Recommended Posts

I did a sewn in weave too. It worked out perfectly for me. I wanted wedding hair, but I also wanted great "vacation" hair. If it weren't my wedding, I would have gotten braids, but I didn't want to wear braids for my wedding.

 

Just make sure that whoever does the weave can braid your hair small and tight--that way it won't be lumpy and will look more realistic. I was undecided about my hair until 2 days before I left. I lucked up in finding a stylist who was fabulous at sewing in weave! (I used human hair, deep body wave that would wave up when wet.)

I completely agree!! I am getting married in Puerto Vallarta next year and I can't stop stressing about my hair. Not sure if I should do a weave or get a strong relaxer. I'm not one that has "good hair" and it immediately goes frizzy the minute I walk outside. My fiance wants me to wear my hair natural sans weave but he's Australian and doesn't get it. Oh the stress!!

Humidity will kill me if I starighten it and I don't want to relax it I hate weaves they make me miserable---I know I pretty much have nothing left but if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. My hair is soft but thick and it keeps the starightness when ironed but thats in cold weather----I may have to relax it and waste 7 yrs of health (sigh)
Girlfriend, I feel your pain. My hair is natural...well, it has a texturizer on it and I have been really stressed about what I'm going to do. I'm not one of those black women that really knows how to do her hair and I'm contemplating flying in my stylist to do it for the week so that I don't have to stress about it, but that is another $900 that I can't afford. The humidity in Puerto Vallarta is brutal. If I relax it it will still be frizzy. Not sure what to do.

Just do a couple trial runs and you'll be fine! Get some brides books along with some of the handy dandy Sophisticates Black Hair mags and take your time figuring out what you like best. The style is the important part, not the how to get it. Thats always doable. You don't need lil' ole me.
Savannah -

If you are near where I am getting married I might just take you up on coming to Puerto Vallarta to do my hair - all expense paid. You just tell me the distance. I'm getting married April 25th.

Let me know.

I had a short weave done in January to give it a try for the first time. My hair is just above the middle of my back and I got a short bob weave.
It lasted not even a month. It was a new experience. It itched a lot!!!
Also, I do not think my braids were small enough. I have really thick hair. After I had the weave washed for the first time (attached to head) my hair started to smell sour. I was under the dryer for 1 1.2 hours. That darm thick hair....
I am/was considering doing a front lace weave because the hair style I have chosen has the hair pulled away from the face. But!!! not many people here have done them and if they can do they are charging my first born.
I am considering getting another weave this Sat with a bang, on the longer side and a bit wavy. Just to give it another shot.
I get pretty anal about my hair and for my wedding/honeymoon this is just one item I do not want to worry about.
I am leaning towards a weave for 2 reasons: 1) I like my hair a certain way 2) all the sun, heat for the wedding is a lot and I can not promise myself that I do not jump in the pool before the wedding. :-)
Dying to know what you ended up going with and if the lace front worked!?

Hey Ladies

I'm new to BDW and I will be honest and say I only read a few pages of this thread. But I want to post then I'll go back to reading. My hair issue is that I have locs, and I have not idea what I'm gonna do ab my hair because we are going on an 8 day cruise and the wedding isn't until day 3 or 4. I'm thinking of having my loctician show one of my aunts how to style my hair the way I want it for the wedding, then just have her do it the morning of. This is because I plan to have fun the days before the wedding and I don't want my hair style to prohibit me... althou I won't be getting in the water til after the wedding lol.
