Chocolate Brides: Hair Question

Recommended Posts

Panda that bun was great!  With your hair pulled back like that it looks like you didn't even need to perm it at all.  I love that hubby didn't know about the xtra hair lol.

 

Congrats on the lovely wedding, new MRS!

Love this thread.  I am going to be in Jamaica for 4 days before the wedding and need to do something.  I will come equipped with irons and products to get me through the the week.  If all else fails I will head to the salon at my resort and a roller set and style as needed afterwards.

Have any of the Chocolate brides here gotten their hair done at SGOR or will be getting it done there for the wedding?  I may have to use the resort salon, I just want to know what your thoughts are.

In my case, I realized that doing things simple worked the best for me. I wanted a side-bun updo but wasn't sure how it would look. My hair is coarse but usually stays straight after a perm. But I had stopped getting perms for maybe a year before the wedding and had been just flat ironing it straight.

 

Anyways, one week before the wedding, I decided to balk and get a perm. But I wanted only a kiddie perm that my Aunt did for me. It did the job in terms of straightnening out the roots. I was worried about humidity since it was already June and the start of hurricane season. But, lemme tell ya, the humidity in Jamaica wasn't terrible. Even after a rain storm and with a good flat iron and hair mosturizer, it was fine.

 

I my hair goes past my shoulders but I wanted my bun to have more volume. So I bought 14" Yaki with hopes it would help (I don't wear weaves or extensions so I wasn't sure how this would work.) My cousin did my hair using the Yaki, a lot of pins and gel...

The process took a loooong time (about an hour) but it was worth the effort. Here's a pic of me outside during the ceremony. Still waiting on pro pics but here's to give you an idea on how it looked...

The look even stayed into the next day for our post-wedding shoot. But I will say it was a bit uncomfortable sleeping because of the pins (pain is beauty I guess).

 

My point is, don't stress out about your wedding day hair. Just make sure you know what style you want and have your normal hair accessories with you. Yes, my husband didn't want me to wear extensions because he wanted me to look "like myself" that day. To be honest... he didn't even realize I had extra hair in until I told him. So, to those who want to wear extra hair... I say go for it. The guys won't be worried about that once they see you walking down the aisle.

 

This forum really helped me so I hope this helps other "Chocolate Brides" too!

I am considering putting a perm in my hair.....  Maybe a kiddie perm... I was trying to "train" my hair to be straight... but it's been very unsuccessful because of my marathon training =(

 

But I am also thinking about getting a weave.... but then I thought that I would have to perm part of my hair anyways to have a natural looking part  Then, I learned about the "invisible part." 

 

Has anyone tried an invisible part before?  Did your guests think that it a natural part?

My hair is natural now and short but it's growing out and I haven't figured out what I'm going to do with it...FI doesn't like weaves although he can't tell when someone's wearing one...I'm still up in the air...I may wear my short little curly doo? Not unless I go ahead and perm it and wear something then????
