I'm so glad all of you are getting married before me....AND in jamaica.... it's going to be great seeing your planning progress and final choices....and PIX galore! :)
Get some rollers, the kind used for rod sets and put them on the ends of your hair after you twist it with some setting lotion, let dry over night and voila!

what style is this? i like it.
I can't tell if they are twists or braids or dreads, but i guess individual braid/twist/dread would work...and just twist it up in a bun w/ a loose tendril..?

These can also be done with longer hair.
Its so funny how every part of the country calls everything something different. We call the cornrow attachment method crochets, and the second style is micro braids. I never knew them as anything else til I started internet posting. lol

We're in Springfield...state capital, though nobody knows it. lol Everyone ALWAYS thinks it's Chicago, but we're about 2 1/2 hours southwest of there.

My cousin who does hair is coming to do my hair. I don't think I could trust someone I don't know to do it especially if they don't have experience with AA hair. I use HairArt's flat iron which I carry with me wherever I travel. I would appreciate any tips on what else to bring.

Tiff- I'd say to let your cousin pick up your hair if you're wearing any type of extensions. She'll know what to get for whatever style you choose. If you tell me what you're going for, I can tell ya what you'll need too.

 

As far as product, I'd just say your normal styling products + some good heavy oil, a good deep conditioner, curling irons (I use two different sized barrels) and a leave in moisturizer as well as maybe some setting lotion and rods depending on what style you're going for.

 

Something else I really, really like is a product called Porosity Control. You can get it in any Sally's Beauty Supply, and it's a conditioner that goes on really slick..seals the hair shaft nicely and can help prevent reversion.

 

I'm just bringin' all my hair stuff in a plastic bag in my carry on.

Im from the midwest as well and I guess it really depends on where you are. the difference is that the hair is braided AND some strands left out to give it that look. The crochet braids are something different...something that I hope no one wears anymore! LOL!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
