    I really like both Nia and Tyra's styles. I have no clue on types of hair I should purchase or length. Any advice would be appreciated.

      First question. Are you planning to have someone at the resort do it for you? Bringing your own hair dresser? If so, I'd leave it up to them. If you are having it done there, then you'll need to know what to bring..I can help if ya do.

        There are two ways to have the "tree" braids done. As cornrows and also individually. The braider simply leaves some of the hair loose as she braids the hair. In the case of interlocks, the natural hair is braided and then the hair is attached using a tool. Very similiar but completely different end results. Here are a few pics of the tree braids done as cornrows:

          These can also be done with longer hair.

                  more questions about tree braids. how will the hair hold up after it gets wet? what will happen when you have to wash it? i have heard of people with weaves saying it took hours to detangle their hair after washing. i definitely do not want to spend hours of my time doing that.

                  danyelle. this is one of my hairstyle options.

                  i really love this one, but it would be my own hair and i don't think it will remain looking good for two weeks of getting wet, washing, humidity, etc.

                  i can't really tell what is going on with her hair here, but i like it. i think my hair may be too long to achieve this look.

                      I would recommend using HUMAN HAIR when you get your hair styled for the wedding. Most beauty supply stores carry it and you can also find it online. Its more expensive but the overall look of the hair is much better.
                      Now the kinky braids should last longer then two weeks if you have them done with synthetic hair and are very cute!
