A wedding is one—if not the most—important occasion where a woman must look and feel her most beautiful. That moment when the door slowly opens and all eyes turn to the bride is magic. And if you’re the one walking down the aisle, you want to look perfect. Your hair must be flawlessly styled, and if you have kulot hair, why hide it in a conventional bun? Check out these curly wedding hairstyles that are worthy of your “I do.”
6 Curly wedding hairstyles to try
1. Half updo
If you’re torn between letting your hair down or having it up, this hairstyle is the solution. Start by washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner made for curly hair. Then, apply heat protectant spray and mousse on your hair to help define your curls. We can’t stress enough the importance of mousse on curly hair. Blow dry your hair and gather the upper half of your tresses using a barrette or a stunning hairpiece. Finish with a hairspray to hold your curls from the ceremony to the reception (and maybe until your after-party).
Editor’s tip: If you have curly hair, have a bottle of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your dresser. It’s a kulot styling must-have.
2. Floating twirl
This simple and elegant hairstyle will draw attention to your natural curls. When you’re done washing, prepping, and blow drying your hair, create a deep side part. Gather a section of hair from the side with more of it, and twist this section until you get the desired length. Then, lift the twirl and secure it to the rest of your hair using a bobby pin. And just like in Curly Hairstyle No. 1, finish with a hairspray to make this ‘do last long.
3. Down with a crown
If you want one of the no-fuss, curly wedding hairstyles, then, by all means, let’s not create a fuss! Simply wear your hair down and adorn it with a flower crown or tiara. This ‘do is perfect for rustic garden weddings or boho-chic weddings held on a beach. When letting your hair down, make sure you have healthy locks by washing with the right shampoo and conditioner. This also makes sure you walk down the aisle sans the dry and frizzy tresses.
4. Curly bob
You can also have one of the short, curly wedding hairstyles if that’s what you like. And a bob hairstyle never fails to impress. Again, a dollop of mousse is your best friend. After blow-drying, scrunch your tresses to help define the curls and to keep your hair from looking flat. With this sophisticated hairstyle, adorning your hair with additional accessories becomes optional.
5. High ponytail
If you want an updo that still shows off your natural curls, then the classic, high ponytail is for you. You can choose to have a side or center part, or simply comb your hair all the way back. Then, with a wide-toothed comb, gather hair close to your drown and tie with an elastic band. Jazz up your look with a floral or bejeweled hairpiece to create impact along with your curly mane.
Editor’s tip: Reduce hair damage caused by constant styling by washing with Dove Intense Repair Conditioner.
6. Half Dutch braid
This hairstyle combines the beauty of a classic ponytail and a sophisticated Dutch braid. To begin creating a Dutch braid, get three equal sections of hair and start braiding from the crown of your head. Add more hair as you make your way down. When you reach your nape, secure braid with an elastic band. Then, simply let the rest of your hair unbraided, letting your natural curls shine and be admired.
