1) A crown for a queen
Natural, flowing curls are the perfect accessory to any wedding outfit. We love this simple, elegant look from Mary Petruska. Paired with a rustic bouquet, she wows with natural curls and a gorgeous tiara fitted for the queen she is.
To achieve this gorgeous elegant look, have your stylist pull your curls loosely to the back of your head. Gently pin your locks down, and then lightly adorn your crown of curls, with well, an actual tiara.
Also, can we talk about this look from the back?! Simply stunning. If you’re after this look and your hair’s not quite long enough (or could use a volume boost) curly hair extensions like Bebonia’s are an amazing way to take your look to the next level.
2) Naturally Gorgeous
This natural hair wedding look from Cameo Jael is just … goals. It also shows exactly how well natural hair catches the light, which is yet another reason to rock a curly hair wedding style for your big day.
Rocking wedding hair down and curly is also a beautiful opportunity for a breathtaking photo like this. To go for this look, you’ll want to make sure your hair is styled for maximum volume (which means drying your hair upside down to keep it from sitting flat against your scalp). For some extra volume, consider adding a set of Bebonia curly extensions. You can get a set that matches your current length to help hair look fuller and more voluminous.
3) Playful goddess
Swoon. We’re beside ourselves with this beautiful ringlet adorned look. Colorful curls and a simple dress are a great way to showcase your gorgeous face. Beyond that, a headband accessory ties the whole look together. We’re in the mood for love.
To achieve this look, you’ll want to be on the lookout for the perfect headband. (Etsy is a great place for this, plus you get to support a small business!) Once you’ve found the perfect compliment for your locks, ask your stylist to style your hair for both volume and definition. Then simply clip away any flyaways, and set that beautiful crown!
4) Long curls, long veil, forever love
We love this timeless, classic look. Plus, can we all just appreciate that her curls bring out the texture of the lace so well?!
To achieve this look, tease out a bit of your hair for extra volume, and have your stylist make a deep side part. To keep curls in place, secure with bobby pins. Then secure your veil in well (the comb it comes with might not be strong enough, so be sure to use extra pins), then sail through your special day.
5) Earth Goddess
In this gorgeous silk dress, Eloise Sarah is the earth mother we all need. Her crown of flowers and butterflies reflects the natural beauty of an outdoor wedding.
To achieve this look, have your florist and stylist team up. Once the crown is created, your stylist can secure it to your mane using a variety of pins. Then to fill in any gaps (or to hide any heavier, but necessary clips) they can weave flowers and decorations into your mane.
We don’t know about you, but after this we’re full of love! Did you wear your hair natural on your wedding day? Let us know in the comments!
