Wedding day styling tips for your curly hair

Wedding days are days that dreams are made of and for those of us with curly, kinky or coily hair it can be a point of contention when choosing a hairstyle for the big day! Putting together the right look can be stressful and overwhelming for curly girls, but fortunately, styling your curls beautifully for your wedding day doesn’t have to be challenging when you understand your curl pattern and what curly hair products you should use to achieve your overall look.

Choosing a formal hairstyle is more than just a notion for curly headed girls, but knowing what’s best for your hair type is half the battle. Check out these tips for various curly hair types and curly hair products you can use to prepare for your wedding day.

Wedding day hairstyles for girls with curly and kinky hair

My curls are…

Loose wavy curls. Your hair is carefree and relaxed so it doesn’t need a lot of styling to look beautiful. You can easily style it in a stunning updo with cascading curls or in a messy bun for a more chic look. To maintain your effortless style throughout the day, however, it’s important to keep your curls conditioned, locked, and frizz-free with CURLS’ Blueberry Bliss CURL Control Jelly. Loose curls are very versatile for wedding hairstyles and by adding a touch of control to your flowy locks you are on your way to a blissful walk down the aisle!

Curly or very curly curls. Curly hairstyles can glam up any event, but having naturally curly hair is really something special on your wedding day. These “s” shaped coils are beautiful, voluminous curls that are perfect for elegant wedding hairstyles whether worn down or half up and adorned with embellishments and accessories like flowers and tiaras. When wearing your curls down, it is a must that you use curly hair products that hold your curls and guard against moisture and humidity. Blueberry Bliss CURL Control Paste defines and holds your curls in place even while you dance the night away.

Kinky, coily curls. Styling kinky, coily hair can be a challenge, to say the least, because kinky hair is the tightest curl pattern, the most delicate and can shrink up to 75% of its length. Kinky hair requires a bit more time and energy to style than curly or wavy hair. Ensuring that your hair is cleansed with moisturizing, all-natural organic products at least 3-4 days in advance is a must to achieve optimal success with your wedding hairstyle. Cleansing with Creamy CURL Cleanser, followed by a deep conditioning treatment using Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask a few days before your wedding is ideal for the best styling situation. When styling kinky hair moisture is key to preventing breakage. Additionally, keep your hair nourished and curls poppin’ daily with Goddess CURLS Botanical Gelle.

Your wedding day does not have to be a disaster just because you are stumped on how to style your curly hair. Take time to plan and experiment with curly hair products ahead of time to ensure your curls shine with you on your big day. Check out all of CURLS products at
