      Okay ladies, its been a while since I've heard from you all. I'm 2 1/2 months out until my wedding. I haven't made a final decision on my hair but I did decide to schedule an appt with the salon at HR. I'm praying she knows what she's doing. I think I will be adding hair with clip ins instead of doing a sew in so I can take it  out right after the wedding. My hair broke off really bad in October after I had it dyed. So I'm hoping the clip ins will give me the long full effect I'm going for. Have any of you made any final hair decisions?

      In the states, Dominicans do African American hair very well, so don't worry too much about it. Just have a bridesmaid with hair experience just in case!

        @TuffLuv...where did you purchase your clip ins? I want to avoid a weave but I want a little more thickness for an updo. My hair is relaxed and I'm having a hard time finding unique but elegant wedding hairstyles for black hair.

          I haven't made up definitely what I'm going to do with my hair, I just had micro twist put in my hair(I'm natural) and I must admit as much as i'[ve never been a braid type girl, I'm truly loving them. they are an option now.

            Hi Ladies!

             

            I had the same dilemma.  Ohhhh, the stress of what to do with this natural hair.  I have 4a hair and have been natural for 2.5 years in April but was right at the 2 year mark when we got married at Iberostar Grand 10.26.13.  I'm not an advocate of sew-ins just because I sweat in my head and hubby HATES weaves, knew I didn't want Senegalese Twists or braids and would never even think about wearing my hair loose in the humid Jamaica weather.  After much contemplation and I decided on a DIY hairstyle.  Having my hair, makeup and nails done were included in my wedding package however my sister and MOH is a MUA so she beat my face, and I didn't trust the resort beauty shop with this thick, natural hair.  I just didn't.  Maybe they would've done a great job but I could chance looking crazy on my special day.  I also enjoy doing my own nails so I handled it.  Youtube and the countless natural hair bloggers I watch gave me the inspiration. I knew I wanted a bun from hell-big, ostentatious and downright ridiculous- and I didn't have enough hair to get that accomplished.  I bought a couple bags of cheap Kankelon and Marley hair and starting practicing my bun a month prior to the wedding.  I liked the Marley bun but it wasn't glam enough for me.  However, it received lots of play at work  :). I settled on the Kankelon bun (yeah with the $.99 or $1.99 a bag hair) and it turned out great.  Im not going to lie the humidity got to these edges halfway through the night but that is to be expected.  Go to Youtube and see if you find any inspiration.  If you have any questions for me let me know.  

             

            BTW....my hubby has locks and I re-twisted them the night before the wedding and our WC and Star Friend braided him up the day of.  We even did TTD a couple days later and my bun was still holding strong after being fully submerged.  I washed my hair after that and rocked a drawstring ponytail, twist out and wash n go for the remainder of our honeymoon.

             

             

            Happy Black History Month!

              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.
