So I must admit I do not like the changes to the site. I never know when or if someone has commented to a post I've made. So needless to say I didn't know anyone responded to my January post. Niss1324, you are beautiful and I love your hair. Did you decide on what you were going to do? I went with a sew in. Not because I wanted to but b/c I felt like I had to. In October I severely damaged my hair and it is still trying to recover. So in order to get the look I'm going for I had to add hair. Although I did not want to go the sew in route I must admit I love it and I have been getting compliments daily. I'll upload some pics later this evening. I'm down to the final 2 weeks before our big day and I'm soooooo excited.

Hey TuffLuv...neither of those pictures are me. They're just some photos I found online while looking for ways to style my hair for my wedding. Don't feel bad... I've damaged my locs too. I actually had to get them cut in the back into a very high bob. It reminds me of Maxine Shaw from Living Single... I'm not so sure I like it yet but I keep getting compliments...all I can say is "Oh well, it's hair and Lawd willin' an the creek don't rise..it'll grow back!"

2 weeks out! Yaaaay! I can't wait to see pictures! Congrats, and remember relax. no matter what happens it will all be okay!

    I want to have a Old Hollywood styled wedding, therefore I have been looking at hair styles in that era. And I like the big deep waves and the pin curls plus the red lips.

      I soooo feel your pain. Hopefully your hair will have grown out to the lenght you want by your wedding. If not, you can always add some ;) .

      That sounds very pretty. I love matte red lipsticks. Mac has a good one, Ruby Woo.

        I am not African American, but I plan on wearing my natural curls. The humidity is going to destroy my hair if I even try putting a flat iron on it. It makes me sad because I love my hair flat ironed with curls, but I have seen brides at the beach looking a hot mess because their hair met the elements. It’s too bad there are not more pictures online of hairstyles for NATURALLY curly hair. There are some of my favorites I found online:

        natural hair curly
        natural hair curly
        natural hair curly
        natural hair curly
        natural hair curly
        natural hair curly

          Okay ladies, I was married in the DR on April 12th and can I tell you the heat/humidity killed my hair/weave. I wore ponytails our entire trip. I did do big curls pulled to the side the day of the wedding. However, by time we made it to our celebratory dinner they were damn near gone. I wouldn't necessarily recommend an updo either b/c it is so windy. I hope this helps.

          First off Congrats....hope you had an amazing time. Can you post or send me a pic of the style you went with so I can get an idea lol? did you end up going with a weave? I was thinking that with a weave it would be ok? how bad was it?

            I will try and post a few pics tonight when I get off. Honestly, hindsight is 20/20 so I wish I would have wore my own hair. I have naturally curly hair and being able to just wet and go would have been nice. Instead I was very worried about maintaing my weave and not wanting it to get wet or messy. I am glad I had it for the ceremony though. Hope this helps.
