African American hair

I'm in need of some pics for hairstyles. I haven't bought a headpiece because I don't know how I'm wearing my hair. I need some sample pics and ideas. I am planning on getting some weave sewed in because Imwant my hair longer, I do know that.

I have some on my profile page, but I say look through some online sites or hair magazines for some inspiration. I have going back and forth on putting in some extensions. I'm trying to work a trial in within the next two weeks. I saw a reunion show w/the basketball housewives and I liked the way Jennifer Williams hair was. I may try it out.

I looked at your profile and noticed your hiar is a bit short.  What kind of style were you planning to do for the wedding date? :) This can help us better help you. 


 


I did a search on Google for 'Beyonce Formal Hair' and got good results, but her hair is a bit longer than yours. 


 


Were you considering extensions (Clip in, sew in, etc)?

You first need to decide how you want to wear your hair even if it is long. Since you want a sew in, are you going to have your hair down, pulled back away from your face or pinned up in the back with tendrils? I have a very small face and head so that also played a big factor on my headpiece. What I would suggest you doing is going to get your hair in a long weave and then go out and try on headpieces. I got a custom headband made that I tried to make myself love, but in the end I just couldn't bring myself to wear it. If you look at my bridal shower post, you will see the tiara on my cake. Lmbao! I thought I wanted to wear a princess like tiara crown, so I went out and tried some on and I hated the way all of them looked on my head because my head is just so small. My FI's cousin got married a couple of years ago and she has the same face structure as mine so I went on a hunt for something similiar. I always loved Kim Kardashian's headpiece, so I ordered one from etsy.com, but not with all the bling because I am simple and chic. I loved the result! So I suggest you start playing around with hair ideas first and then go from there. Here is my headpiece and basically how I am wearing my hair for my wedding.

I say just look online at some celeb pics. If you google long black hairstyles images you will come up with lots and lots of ideas. Thats what I did to come up with an idea. If you are wearing a sew in then just take the pictures you like to your hairdresser so they get exactly the look you are going for. I also recommend getting your sew in at least a week before so if you decide you dont like the style it can be changed well before the wedding.
