If you are an African American woman about to be married, you want everything to be perfect, including your hairstyle. A popular choice is to have a wedding that embraces your rich heritage, which means the clothing, decorations, and hairstyles are all elaborate and colorful. If you are considering a traditional African American wedding of your own, you might need to take some extra preparations to ensure everything comes together perfectly.

If you do not already have a stylist, you want to find one who is qualified to work on your hair type. When you locate the person you will be working with, take your headpiece with you so you can decide on a style. You should also work closely with your stylist to try several different styles, making sure you choose one that will accentuate your features the best. You would be best not to change your hair color, style, or length any closer to your wedding day than six months since this is not the time to start experimenting with your hair.

Remember that you want a stylist that is skilled working with color, style, and texture, all three prime elements in you having an amazing style. You might look through a bridal magazine or other magazines to find styles you like and then take those pictures with you when you visit the stylist. If you do not have the headpiece yet, again, take pictures of your dress and headpiece already ordered or the style you will be ordering.

You should work with your natural color and texture if possible. However, if you are set on having a straight, sleek style, talk to your stylist about options for relaxing your hair. If your hair tends to be straight, you might consider getting a soft perm. Your main concern should be your hairs health. When you hair is healthy, it will be easier to work with and will look better. For this reason, about six months out from your wedding, work with a stylist to get your hair on a health regimen. The result on your special day will be remarkable. It will have more shine and will style much easier.

You also want to have your hair enhance your natural skin tone and color of your eyes. If you have a light chocolate skin and lighter eyes, you might consider a warm honey tone whereas if you have a beautiful, deep chocolate skin and dark eyes, something auburn would be gorgeous. If you want to try different options, you can have a temporary dye test done or you can go on the Internet and locate websites that for a small fee will use an existing photograph of you and allow you to look at different hairstyles and colors to see what you would look like.

You should also match the hairstyle to the wedding gown. For instance, if your wedding gown is covered with sequins and hand beading, then straight hair and a simple veil will not do justice, just as a simple gown would not look good with a heedful of curls. You want the hairstyle, gown, and veil to all compliment each other. If you have short hair, you can create richness by having the stylist add or enhance your color. The stylist can also give your hair a special treatment that will help it shine and glisten. Another consideration would be to have your hair multi-textured, which is very popular today. This provides you with many options when it comes to a veil and headpiece and is beautiful. You could also consider flowers or hair jewelry over the veil with this style.

For medium length hair, the flip that was popular in the 1960s is back. This style is an easy style to achieve and very classy and sophisticated. For long hair, wearing it up would create an elegant look. You could have a few dreaded frizzies or falling curls cascading around your face. Just remember this is your day and by working with a qualified stylist, you will be breathtaking.
