Wedding Hair: Natural Wedding Hairstyles

To straighten, or not to straighten?  That is the question many natural hair brides ponder when they are trying to decide on how to style their hair for their wedding. While we are sure you will look beautiful either way, if you choose to wear your hair natural for your big day, you are not alone. Our lovely real brides below demonstrate some of the many options you can choose from if you want to style your hair in all of its natural glory.
