I am looking for some pictures of brides with dark brown or black hair to give me ideas for my wedding day hairstyle. I want to wear my hair down or do a half updo. I really don’t want to wear my hair up because I have bad skin and acne scarring which I feel self conscious about, plus I rarely wear my hair up anyways. My hair is extremely thick, very coarse and naturally curly. I always flat iron it though because it is so bushy when I leave it natural. It is also really heavy and sometimes when I tease my hair, it falls flat within 15 minutes.
Currently my hair is about 3 inches past my shoulders and a very dark brown-black color (level 3). If my hair doesn’t grow enough by my wedding (August 2014) then I’ll buy hair extensions. I am really liking Jennifer Stano’s wedding hairstyle:
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks 🙂

@honeybeexo: I have thick, dark hair & did a half up half down kind of thing but a little to the side. Everyone thought I had extensions for some reason. I think it’s just because I never do my hair 😉 I had a few inspiration pictures but went with something a little diferent after my hair trial. I don’t have all of my pictures back yet but so I just tried to pick some where you can actually see it. I had a hard time finding inspiration pictures with dark hair too. I think it’s because it’s a little easier to see styles in pictures with lighter hair. You may do something totally differen’t but hopefully it helps to see the color at least! My hair girl recommended highlights but I did something really minimal so I don’t really think it comes across in the pictures. I added a picture of me doing absolutely nothing with my hair (at my makeup trial) so you can see what my hair normally looks like and how it looked after being done.

@honeybeexo: i think it depends on the dress.
I don’t wear my hair up. EVER. but i have decided to wear my hair up because I never do it. and I want to show off the back of my dress.
But if you are self conscious, that do a half up/down look! or maybe a fancy side pony tail?

Thanks everyone :). I don’t have my dress yet, but I really like the Maggie Sottero Divina dress (in white or ivory). I’m thinking down hair or half-up would look really nice with that dress.

My hair is dark and I wore it down and pinned on the sides.
Here was a pic from my hair trial in which my hair was down a bit more …..I wound up doing it a bit different on the wedding day and had it pinned more on the sides and more volume
