BellaNaija Weddings



Dionne Smith Hair_BellaNaija Beauty_2016__MG_2757RT copyDionne Smith has this exclusive bridal shoot just for BellaNaija Beauty and Weddings lovers! The hairstylist crafted these wedding looks with natural hair in mind.

As an international bridal hair stylist I come across brides with all different hair types, from 3a to 4c, and I’m always wandering how to enhance there natural hair, so this shoot was inspired to show natural hair can be made beautiful and also so show how to enhance natural hair with adding extensions.

I used Design Essentials for hair prep and to finish, finishing with there form holding spray & reflections for shine.”

Although the hair takes center stage, we also love the styling of the models – the bouquets are simply stunning.
