Chocolate Brides: Hair Question

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies...I have spent my entire afternoon catching up on this thread. You have asked and answered most of my questions.

 

I had originally planned on trying to grow my hair long enough to wear it up on the day of the wedding and down for our welcome dinner. I think my hair is too thin to fight the humidity. I am huge water baby. Normally when we go on vacation, i just pull it back into a ponytail and go. However, since it is my wedding I think I need to step it up.

 

I love the Nia Long look. I plan on getting a weave sewn in a week or two before we leave.

My bridal shower and bacherlorette party were this weekend and ladies, I had an amazing time! I have pics on FB, you can pm me for the links :.)

 

I decided to get a "quick weave" (track hair bonded to my hair which was molded down) in a bob style and loved the results! Here's a few pics!

Oooooo, Monique, that looks SO pretty! It really suits you too! I see a lot of styles that are pretty but don't really suit the person, this one looks phenomenal on you!

 

So..whats the verdict? What will you do for the wedding?

Thank you so much! I normally wear a lighter color in my hair when I get weaves, but was too cheap to get the colored hair! LOL! But I loved the end result, no more blond me!

Now about the wedding hair, I had my heart set on a sew in, then braids, but now I think I'm back to the sew in BECAUSE a friend of mine that isn't going to the wedding :.( , will be in Chicago until the end of the month and she does fabulous sew ins!!! The plan is to have her do the install and have my stylist cut and style the hair before we leave for Jamaica.

Heres a picture of her sew in that she did on Saturday, in our hotel room, herself...lol!

Love it! The did and awesome job! It looks really nice.



I ended up with the natural hair kinky twists. My hair is natural and I didn't want to relax it, so a friend recommended them. I tested it out and really like them. I have had them in for 7 weeks now and I am getting them redone this weekend for the wedding. I might just where it down or put them up in a style, not sure yet. Here are some pics...excuse how I look, I just came off the dance floor at my friends wedding. :)

OK, to be able to do your own sew in? HOLY weave goddess, that girl is the stuff for real. Gotta be! And does it WELL too...

What style are you going with?

On a side note, I'm beginning to wonder if we need a make up thread. I went into the one posted here tonight and got COMPLETELY discouraged when two out of the four "best" brands that the ladies are talking about don't carry foundations anywhere near what could be used for black skin. I'm gonna need to find something that will wear well and look naturual in pics. What do you guys think?

I know right!!!! It looks good and she isnt coming to Jamaica....stfu.gif That would have totally solved all of my hair problems!

My hair will be similar to hers but with hair left out on the sides and back as well so that I can wear a ponytail.

Now about the makeup, try Sephora, I was able to find some great foundation there, its called Cargo Blu Ray, heres the link:
Sephora: CARGO blu_ray Pressed Powder: Pressed Powder

The plus is that they can get you a sample of anything in the store to try at home :.)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
