What do I do with my curly hair for the wedding?

30 Apr

My natural curly hairA post from another blogger made me think about my own oh-so-curly hair for my wedding. It’s funny, for months now, on and off, people have asked me what I’m going to do with my hair. “Are you going to straighten it?” they ask as they smile and look at my wayward curls. I know what they are thinking, I’ve heard it on and off my whole life…”You really should straighten your hair.” Or you hear, “If only your curls were more uniform.” Or “If only your hair didn’t get frizzy.” 

I love my hair curly. I love it straight. However, I do not like straightening it (it takes forever and it’s not good for your hair). Not only is my hair curly, but it’s also really thick. I cut over 15 inches of it off last June. I’ve been letting it grow back out since. But as it gets closer and closer to the day of the wedding I realize I really need to figure out what I’m going to do with my hair. Most of the hair-do’s you see for curly hair are for big curls, women who have straight hair but want it curly, or for black hair. My hair is closest to what would be considered Spanish hair. And I’ve only found a few hairstyles that are specifically for really curly hair.

I would like to wear my hair as close to its natural state of curliness as possible but I realize that because I’m getting married the beginning of September in South Carolina my hair will need some help so that it doesn’t get super-frizzy or super-big, or both. I’ve been playing around with hot rollers to see how I like the big curls, playing around with curling irons to see how I like the more “controlled” curl, and I’ve been looking at various hairstyles if I were to actually straighten it. I don’t like the big curls because it also makes my hair super-big, Charlie’s Angel’s kind of big (the original Angels). And I don’t like the curling iron curls because they drop about an hour afterwards.

So as I, and many other brides-to-be who have curly hair, try to figure out what we’re doing in regard to our hair, I will keep you updated with photos of what I find, and of my own hair.
