Wedding Hairstyle for Black Hair - Tutorial

Hello my loves I am back to share my wedding hair style which is suitable for anyone with short to medium length hair and even long hair. I would say that this wedding hairstyle can be achieved on relaxed, natural, texlaxed or transitioning hair. It is also something bridesmaids could wear or it can be worn to a fancy dinner or event.

I just realised I have not shared my wedding photos on this blog and I decided to put up some of these pictures which were taken by a dear friend and the very first one, by hubby.

This is the hairstyle after the wedding was over and I was back in our hotel room and as a typical hair blogger I realised I needed to take a picture for my blog readers. This was after all the dancing and all so the hairstyle was not as neat however I still think that it looked good.



With this picture you can see the front part of the hairstyle, I loved my pearl sort of crown. I wore a lot of pearls because I adore them. The pearl necklace constituted my something borrowed as it belongs to my mum.



This is the side view of the wedding hairstyle and I think it is appropriate at this point to say how my hair stylist achieved this look on me. Although the wedding hair style itself was my own creation I did not have the presence of mind to actually do my own hair on my wedding day. Here is an instruction guide on how the wedding hairstyle was achieved:

  • Start with moisturised hair and then use a heat protectant all over the hair.
  • Proceed to create medium curls with a curling tong or you can roll your hair (using medium sized rollers) and sit under a hooded dryer.
  • Note that you will mentally divide your hair into three sections
  • When the hair is all nice and curled separate the front section and divide into three smaller sections and create three flat twists/rolls pinning them to the side in the form of a side swept bang/fringe.
  • With the middle section create a hump and pin in place.
  • For the rest of the hair you will create soft rolls and pin into place. (Note that you would need a lot of pins)
  • You can then use any hair accessories to finish the look and you are done.



Finally look at the pretty waves at the back of the hair.


I hope you all enjoyed the pictures of my wedding hairstyle; maybe later on I can post some of my favourite pictures of the wedding day (i.e. the ones that were professionally taken). Please let me know if this is something you would like to see. I would love if someone is able to recreate this hairstyle for their wedding day, if you would like me to recreate the hair style on my own hair with a step by step picture tutorial please leave a comment below and I would be sure to do so.


PS. I would like to thank everyone who entered the New Beginnings Hair Growth Challenge as well as all the lovely bloggers who entered as well. It made me so glad. If you have not entered the Challenge please do so as there is still time left to enter your comment on the post so that I know you are participating.

TONKABELLE, xoxo
