Brides with curly hair are queens crowned in their curls. Beach waves, loose curls, springy hair, tasselled locks - the names for curly hair are endless. But the problem for every bride with curly hair is the same that they can flaunt their natural texture but are limited.
Curly-haired girls have always heard remarks along the lines of 'maggie noodles' and 'why don't you straighten them'. However, having curly hair is something others will never get but you. In fact, one thing girls with curly hair are well aware of is that they have curls what others run to salons for. They may need blowdryers and straighteners occasionally, but they will never need a curling tong to get those flawless messy curls.
And even though many hair stylists will give you the advice to straighten your hair temporarily or permanently, we urge you to embrace them. We're in an age where every hair texture is loved and marvelled at, especially naturally curly hair. A bride flaunting her curly hair will always give off a very vibrant, fun-loving and endearing vibe. So, to make sure you never have to let go of those beautiful tresses, here are some examples of bridal hairstyle ideas for curly hair.
Hairstyles For Brides With Curly Hair To Rock
Effortless Tight Or Loose Buns
The most fuss-free way to style your curls is to tie them up in a nice bun. Whether you choose to make a tight updo or go in for something loose and flowy, your natural texture will be much more manageable in a hair bun. If you're worried about baby hair wreaking havoc around your forehead, then just use a hair spray and brush them backwards to keep them from moving too much. To magnify the beauty of your tresses, add flowers, gajras or even dainty hair accessories at the knot.
