Once you start searching, there are so many rad examples of wild and elegant natural black wedding hairstyles. Seriously, check just this link as an example. Drool-worthy, amiright? I did some hand-picking of my favorites in this third edition of ass-kicking natural black hair. Yep, there are two previous editions, in case you missed them.

Let's take a gander at what we've got this time. Spoiler alert: it's brides totally owning their kinks, locs, twist-outs, and curls. And then share your plans for a natural wedding style in the comments, because I know that it's the JAM for some of you.


Okay so, I'm kind of digging this whole scene: crocheted shawl, best cleavage ever, and of course, the full fabulousness of the mane. Pretty people are pretty.

The little white flower is totally working here, but it's the voluminous tiny twists bringing it home.

Kinda retro, uber gorgeous, DO WANT. Oh, and can you say ultra perfect makeup, too? Jeez.


Ugh, I'm kicked in the teeth with sweetness from this pair. Her short style is amazing with the clean lines of that dress, but I'm also sneaking peeks at Cutie McGroomface over there and his ponytail. Oh, sorry, got distracted.

I'm getting a come-hither vibe here. Anyone else? Oh, you already went there? Figures. The lady knows the value of a twist-out updo.

Ooh, tiny twist-outs in a half updo! I love the barrette, too.

Are you loving this mysterious birdcage look? That is chic as hell.


This bride's 'fro looks like it's glowing with that tip color. It doesn't even need the sunshine I spy on her shoulder to glow. Also, sexy neck snog? Yes, please.


Dude, is it getting hot in here, or what? It's like I did this on purpose! Hehehe.


Okay, I know we're talking about hair here (and her side-swept curls rock), but that dramatic headpiece is killing me. I'm dead.

If you didn't know, this is Ingrid LaFleur, a Detroit-native art critic and curator. She definitely has that full, sexy kind of hair that I just want to see paired with a wedding dress. Thankfully, we can pretty much get the gist with her outfit.
