Chocolate Brides: Locs, braids, etc.

Recommended Posts

I will most likely do a lace front wig and have my hair corn rowed or get tree braids underneath so I can whip that bad boy off and go scuba diving after my wedding and on our mini moon!

My other suggestions would be:

  • straw set
  • cane row braids the night before wedding into a side part style. Undo the day of and leave it crinkly and put a beautiful big funky flower on one side
  • Twists (then you can do a half up/down style depending on length)
  • slick it back into a ponytail if its long enough and do a side low bun (you can even buy amazing bun pieces to put in)
  • high bun. Make sure the sides are well slicked tho

Gosh...I could talk hair all day. Lol!

 

 

Very helpful suggestions JA2012!   Hair jewelry are amazing accessories that do not only add style to a typical updo, but sexifies your overall wedding appearance. Make an old school hairstyle gorgeous with an exotic hair couture that will truly make you a certified bombshell bride!

@ IluvPinkandPurple -   The color red does not only prettify a white or ivory colored gown but it signifies love, passion, power and good luck. Now that's a load of confidence while donning your lovely dress and charmingly exotic hair jewelry! 

 

XOXO

Are most of you ladies having a hair trial with the salon at the destination where you are getting married? Are you doing your own hair? Or are you just going to say a prayer before hand and hope for the best? My hair is always an issue so I struggle with this one.

JA2012 Don't get me started talking about hair products because I am a product junkie lol. I did try kinky curly but it was too "gummy" I did love the leave in Knot Today. I am debating wearing my hear natural in spring twists for my wedding or to do a sew-in. I don't think my hair will be at the length I would like by July.

HAHAHAH! I'm a product junkie also. I've been growing out my relaxer for a year now and trying to go all natural. Coconut oil btw has been a godsend! Makes it soft and I think its causing it to grow too. Try it. My jar says 100% coconut oil...good for skin, hair and COOKING. hahaha. I got it at the west indian store in the food aisle. Walmart etc also prob sell it. or health food.

It would be a shame to have to relax it just for the wedding since I've been so good up til now. But I may need to in order to achieve the look I want. Even with a sew in I'd want smooth edges. Ugh...the debate continues....

I'm doing my own hair for my wedding day! I'm pretty picky and no one can ever style my hair that way that I can. The only thing is my package with the resort includes the hair and make up so I'm gonna see if I can swap the hair out for something else or try to use the credit towards something else.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
