If only finding a bridal hairstyle was as easy as spotting the perfect pair of shoes. Unfortunately, choosing African wedding hairstyles is not as intuitive, and it gets even trickier when you are attending as a guest. You don’t want to outshine the bride, but you need to respect the everlasting union. Here’s what our top stylists have to say to help you rock that special occasion ‘do. 

Keep it short and simple with the slicked-down look

Finding short hair wedding styles is downright complicated. Yet you can’t go wrong with a simple slicked-down look to showcase your short natural hair. Add a touch of sparkle with elegant accessories, barrettes and/or jewels for an on-trend look.

The “African phondo” reincarnated

 This hair bun forms the core of the ultimate black wedding hairstyles for guests. Our experts recommend that instead of the usual “phondo” (bun knot), you should go for a trendier way of rocking this style. We love the sky-high top knot near the crown of your head, as well as the messy bun.

Just let it happen

The new trend when it comes to wedding hairstyles for African hair is… not to follow trends. This works particularly well with short natural hair. Don’t style your hair. It is enough. Just like the curves on your body, the waves of your hair reflect the African rhythm within. Give the goddess in you unrestricted freedom. Embrace that afro and those curls as is. Your hair is just as it should be. 

The trick to mastering a wedding hairstyle is to keep your hairdo subtle. Whether you go for a long or short hairstyle, stick with something that makes you smile. Only you can challenge the “how-to” guides with the confidence that comes from great-looking hair, supported by salon-quality haircare brands and products.
