If you're a curly haired girl looking for a beautiful and flattering wedding hairstyle, there's no reason to use a straightener! While many curly girls assume they need to flatten out their gorgeous natural curls in order to have an elegant updo, they are wrong. Now more than ever there are many creative ways to style your hair while embracing your curls. Whether you have long or short hair, curly or kinky, consider these flattering styles.
If your hair is past your shoulders and curly, chances are it's one of your favorite features. Many women with long curls are blessed with a mane of hair others envy. However, many women with long hair wear it up most of the time, as it's easier to manage. Why not embrace the opportunity to wear your hair in a way you don't normally do?
Your wedding is the perfect chance to step out with a simple yet attractive style that complements the natural you. Popular for beach weddings, the best way to style your hair is to ensure sleek curls and not frizz. Use a lightweight grooming crème for hold and definition, and lightly diffuse hair or let it hair dry. Use a large barreled curling iron once your hair is dry to further define and smooth your curls. No need to curl each and every one, just enough to give your hair a polished look. Consider forgoing a veil, and instead slipping on a crown or tiara for a bit of sparkle.
A great style for ladies who love the natural look of flowing curls, but want something a little more formal without a full updo, should consider the Princess Half Pin. Basically, the top half of your hair is pulled back and secured in a variety of ways so as to emphasize your natural features and open up your face. Framed by tendrils yet out of your eyes, this look can be worn tight or loose, parted or pulled pack, in a soft bun or braid. Pull a few curly strands look about your cheeks, and decorate with daisies, jeweled clips, or even a light veil. This hairstyle looks best on bare shoulders where the hair won't hide details of the dress.
Just because one has curly hair doesn't mean you can't enjoy a gorgeous updo for your wedding day. If you would rather keep your curls out of your face, this is a simple look with a lot of options depending on your length and texture. Better for hair that at least hits your shoulder, try securing your hair low in a bun near the nape of the neck for a soft, romantic look. If you prefer a funky spin on the updo, go for drama and pull it your hair into a high bun or twist on the back of the head. Don't make it so tight that you can't see your natural wave, and emphasize the curls by curling individual strands and clipping them for a loose, sexy pile.
