Feed-in Braids + Statement Ponytail

When it comes to wedding style, a statement ponytail has long been a staple in the natural hair community. This looks puts a fresh spin on the look by incorporating one of the summer’s most popular trends, feed-in braids. You can get creative by playing with the design. And if you’re planning a destination wedding, it can work as a two-in-one look as you go island hopping.

Accessorize Your Fro

Want to keep things simple? Find a fab headband, floral or bejeweled pin to accessorize your look. If you’re used to a twist out, braid out, or wash and go, this can help to take your signature look to the next level.

Soft Flexi Rod Curls

If you’re going for minimal heat, but want to achieve voluminous, wavy curls, a flexi rod set is a great solution. On damp or stretched hair, roll on medium to large rods throughout, and allow them enough time to dry overnight before the ceremony.

Casual, boho-inspired brides may want to opt for this ethereal updo that emphasizing your curls. It exudes a relaxed elegance that works well with lace-forward gowns, or a ceremony surrounded by nature.
