Wedding Hairstyle Ideas for Kinky/Coily Hair

Are you getting married? Congratulations! In the midst of all the wedding planning, deciding on a hairstyle for your big day requires some extra thought. While you may fall in love with the perfect hairdo, it may not be the best option for your hair length and texture. For example, if you have coily, afro-textured hair, there’s the possibility of shrinkage altering the final look. 

But not to worry! You’re in the right place. Here at Faces of Virtue, we specialize in custom, natural hairstyles for weddings and special events. We’ll share a few styling tips to help you choose the best wedding hairstyle and a few ideas for inspiration. With that said, here are three important steps to take.

Step 2: Plan for the Weather and Season

Always take into consideration the time of year when deciding on the perfect wedding hairstyle. If the ceremony will be outdoors, factors such as heat and humidity can affect how long your hairstyle will last. 

Step 3: Find Photo Inspiration Based on Your Hair Type

A good rule of thumb is to pull inspiration from hair models with the same hair type as yours. You’ll want to have realistic expectations so that your hairstylist has enough time to prepare and style the morning of your wedding. You can even create a mood board of various styles you like based on the particular event.
