Easy Wedding Hairstyle for Natural Hair- Marley Faux Bun

So I’m at that stage where I am attending many ¬†bridal showers, ¬†weddings, ¬†baby showers, and things family oriented. Most of my age mates are getting married and it’s a beautiful time to try out wedding hair updos. One of my favourite and easiest hair do for weddings has to be the faux bun. ¬†This hairstyle is so easy to do, ¬†inexpensive, and beautiful. I actually rocked it at my cousin’s wedding last year and most of you asked for a tutorial. ¬†I prepared a pictorial instead and I am going to show you, ¬†step by step, ¬†how to achieve this look.

THREE BRIDAL WEDDING ACCESSORIES FOR THE NATURAL-HAIR BRIDE

 

The importance of wedding hair accessories on your wedding day cannot be underestimated. They set the mood and theme a notch higher and therefore you need to be careful when settling on your accessories for the big day. A number of things that you should consider when choosing your bridal accessories include: your wedding gown, the theme of your wedding, the hairstyle that you will choose, whether or not you are going to wear a veil, and what kind of jewelry are you wearing. Having been on the bridal line up recently and I had to do some research on bridal accessories. I got three that I have been using for sometime and it is safe to say that this post applies to the brides-to-be as well as a bridesmaid looking to glam up their hair with some accessories.

Cornrows 102: Fulani Braids

Heeeello there,

I am in good spirits and excited to share this updo that’s one week now (two more to go). FULANI braids y’all!! This hairstyle has been trending for a while and I had to try them as well. It’s not as new as most of us think as it originated from the traditional west African ladies of the Fulani tribe who have rocked it for ages with their natural hair. ¬†The beads are a key aspect that accentuate the look and therefore the more the merrier. ¬†Some of you saw this pic on my instagram page and requested a post on it so here we go ladies ?????…

ALL NATURAL PROJECT

It’s been a while since I had my open hair because of the three months I had my faux locs. ¬†I have missed flaunting my natural hair as much as I did last year and to be honest, the relationship between my hair and I has been a struggle this year. ¬†Being a natural hair blogger, there is the presumption that we don’t have hair struggles but the truth is that this journey is full of ups and downs as well. ¬†My hair has been tangling so much, ¬†not to mention how challenging it was to detangle after undoing faux locs. But I am taking time to treat it and show it some love by deep conditioning and trimming the ends and with time I hope for better results. ¬†While dealing with these struggles, I was selected to take part in the All Natural Project run by Heenie Photography.¬†

My Faux Locs Experience

Faux Locs

Hello dearies,

It’s been a minute since I posted but I ¬†am glad to be back. ¬†This has been my year of protective styling and since I undid my cornrows, I have been rocking faux locs. If you’ve ever read my post on how I take care of my hairline, then you pretty much know that I lost it all the first time I did faux locs, (which by the way, I swore never to have them done again). Never say never though. As I type this, I am actually preparing to take them down, three months later. ¬†Perfect time to share how I have been taking care of them, right? ūüôā
