Striking Natural Hair Looks for the 2015 Bride! |T.Alamode

Nigerian Bridal Natural Hair and Makeup Shoot - Black Bride - BellaNaija 2015 11This edition of BN Bridal Beauty is oh-so breathtaking! The looks are so fresh, and such a welcome departure from the usual ‘perfect side part hair, with a chignon and nude lips’ fare we’re used to.

These natural bridal hair styles were achieved using twists and curly hair weaves, rather than silky straight looks, while the makeup – from red lips to pink pouts, served as striking complements.

Incorporating crystal headpieces and veils in the faux hawk and more, the models evoke romance while standing out – they embody the contemporary bride. This beauty team scores high in our books (see credits and contact info below!)

Be inspired!

      So what if there are extensions??? Can’t natural women wear natural extensions abi them make am for only straight?

      Anyhow, the styles are all the same and it looks like it’s all about the makeup here… Sick of beauty shoots being about weddings. Ugh.

      The article mentioned the inclusion of weaves but not the regular straight ones.

    The women look beautiful but let’s not get it twisted. If you’re using kinky and ‘natural’-like extensions in your hair, is it not still extensions? This comment is specifically for people that judge people with wavy weaves and then use afro or kinky extensions. They may look more authentic compared to your skin colour and hair line, but it is the same damned thing.

    Beautiful people please read the article first “These natural bridal hair styles were achieved using twists and curly hair weaves, rather than silky straight looks…”

    I thought natural hair means no attachment…. again I might be wrong

      You’re definitely wrong. Natural look is all inclusive.

    These are nice shots, though a bit too heavy on the photo shop aspect.. But they could have used someone with natural hair,
