Thankfully, because of the bravery of natural loc’d brides who broke the glass ceiling, more and more brides in communities of color are opting to wear their gorgeous natural hair on their wedding day.
As the fashion and beauty industries pivot to address important issues with representation and inclusiveness within its ranks, women everywhere are saying yes to their loc’d bridal beauty stories. From elegant pearl hairpins and oh so petite bridal blusher veils to glamorous crystal hair vines, locs on your wedding day can be styled in so many exciting ways. We here at Munaluchi raise a petite glass of Veuve Clicquot with you as we share some of the prettiest wedding day loc’d styles from Instagram for your glamorous day. Cheers!
Bridal Hair Vines
These bridal go-to hair accessories can take your loc’d bridal look to the next level of glam. For the prettiest coordinating look, try styling your locs with matching hair vines and earrings. If you have a simple twisted updo with or without a veil, try your hair vine placed on the side of your hair so the light beautifully reflects off your face and gorgeous makeup! And to make an even more glamorous statement try a larger bridal hair vine that can be worn flat on top of your styled locs, across the forehead, or transitioned into a tiara for your updo.
Elegantly Twisted Updos
You can try these simply sophisticated twisted updos without additional hair accessories so that the design of the loc is the star. From simple twists to barrel rolls and basket weaved locs these styles let your intricately designed tresses make their entrance down the runway. Yes, we know its the aisle but these locs deserve a fashion runway, dear!
Chic pearl hairpins are such classic touches to add to any loc updo. With these delicate pearl accessories that never go out of style, you can be sure that you will be the picture of sophistication on your big day.
Honey Colored Highlights
In addition to any gorgeous hair accessories, how about trying a new hair color for your big day! These caramel and honey highlights will be the perfect addition to any loc’d coiffure.
Petite Blusher Veils
Transform your bridal hair and gown with these vintage-style bridal veils. These short veils add a punch of personality to the hairstyle of your choice and we definitely approve.
Elegant French Braids
For a look that’s not quite an updo but showcases the length of your locs, try a French braid. The hair jewelry of your choice can be placed anywhere to make your hair look like you stepped out of a fairy tale.
Side Swept Locs
By far this is the easiest way to showcase the natural beauty of your locs. Whether colored, long, or short, this style is simply for the bride that wants to let her hair cascade naturally around her face and add to the perfect bridal glow that she already has.
What kind of locd hairstyle is right for you?
We recommend consulting with your hairstylist about the right choice four to five months before your wedding day. It gives you enough time to try out different styles to see which one will go perfectly with your outfit. We also recommend talking to your stylist about the timing of any loc maintenance such as retwists, detoxes, and coloring to ensure that your hair is at its healthiest. We hope that your hair journey to find the right style for your locs will be a fun time for you and your stylist and we are sure that whatever style you choose, your tresses will be a beautiful part of your bridal story!
