Wedding Hair: Versatile Locs


Some natural and relaxed women are intimidated about having dreadlocks because they believe that locs are a permanent style that lacks versatility. However, locs can be styled into many designs and wedding hair options with locs are nearly endless. You can let them flow, or wear them in a number of different updos.  Today we are featuring some of our beautiful brides who had glamorously styled locs on their wedding day. 

Bride Leah wore her locs in a lovely criss-cross updo, and complimented her hairstyle with a birdcage for the ceremony and feathers for the reception. See more of her Harlem Renaissance inspired wedding here.  (Photography by JazzyMae Photography)
