well since i did my second big chop i will probably get a sew in. cant decide if i want it to have a natural look, or go with soft waves.

Commenting to follow. I want to wear my hair natural (curly) for my wedding, but it can be unpredictable and I’d like ideas for styles. I’m considering just wearing it down but pulled back on one side with a flower or something. I’d rather not straighten for the wedding because I feel more like myself when it’s natural.

I’m torn between (note: none of these photos are me): 

  • a loose side updo or a 2-strand twisted updo for the ceremony and BIG for the reception/afterparty (but it’s a lot work for my lazy self)

          

          

  • Senegalese Twists (esp. since I wouldn’t have to worry about my hair post-wedding) with this updo style for the ceremony:

@MlleFabuleux:  I like that loose side updo. I might be able to do something like that. Thanks for posting the pics.

I have been wearing my hair short for the last 6 years so I’m trying to decide right now between keeping it short and straight and doing a pompadour or growing it out and doing poodle cut with my natural hair.
