Bridal Hair Series: Natural Drop Curls

Who said natural ladies can’t have drop curls? Today’s style proves them wrong. This style is what i like to call ethnic drop curls. The front portion of the hair is pulled back and neatly secured, while the ends of the hair cascade into drop curls. The course texture of the hair produces spongy curls. The flower adds a nice feminine touch. For all you natural sisters out there, this style is best worn in a non-humid...

Bridal Hair Series: Modern Bouffant

This week we’re featuring a Modern Bouffant.  It’s sleek, it’s sophisticated, it’s ‘modelesque’ without being impractical and complimented with a smoky eye it’s super über sexy! In this style, the model’s hair is piled high on a side and bangs are side swept to blend with the bouffant.  I really love this style, but unless you’re willing to add some extensions, your hair needs to...

Bridal Hair Series: Chignon/French Knot Updo

This week’s style is compliments of a DHO reader Loïca who was kind enough to share her personal wedding day hairstyle with us. I love her hair style!  It looks to me like a modern chignon or french knot updo.  Very elegant, with a touch of bling compliments the tiara.  What I like about this style is that you don’t have to worry about the wind getting the better of it, or that it will collapse.  Once the chignons are...

Bridal Hair Series: Micro Flat Twists

This week’s style is from Khamit Kinks.  If you’ve never heard of them, wear natural hair  and you live in or near to the Brooklyn area, you should definitely check them out (assuming you can afford them). The stylists at Khamit Kinks specialize in naturally textured hair and from what I’ve seen they are highly talented.  When I first saw this micro flat twists style I was blown away.  It is absolutely gorgeous!  The...
