Prom Formal Wedding Updo Hairstyle on Natural Hair

Hey dolls, Its that time of year again! It seems like everyone's getting married, graduating school etc. From formal events, weddings, to proms the very last thing we would want to worry about is our natural hair. It already takes us a while to figure out the perfect dress, makeup and shoes, our hairstyle for the night should be the final touch to the entire look. If the look can be achieved in less than 10 minutes, even better!  

This formal up-do is both timeless and effortless taking less than 10 minutes to complete. This look can be extremely timeless. Easily convert your casual Mohawk into a classy curly up-do by simply adding a few extra twists around the nape of your head, yes its that simple!

I remember as a child getting excited to pull out my flat iron for voluminous curls or a sleek straightened look. You know things were getting real when mom busted out the old school hot comb for the edges haha! 

This hairstyle is easily achieved on any texture of hair; curly, straight, kinky, or wavy. I achieved this look on a 3 day old twist out using CoCo Curls Moisturizing Styling Cream! Don't worry I have a review and tutorial featuring this product coming right up! 

To define your curls for a more classic approach simply practice the shingling method using your favorite styling gel.

Many natural hair divas often mistaken the versatility in our texture. Amongst our kinks and curls I would definitely say that African American hair has to be one of the most versatile textures out there. We can go from straight sleek hair to an edgy fro in a matter of an hour without the use of too many products or hair sprays. We can manipulate our hair into pretty much any desired look! I challenge you to think outside of the box one day this week with your hair, try a new technique, purchase that new product you've been eyeing all week!

Which style do you prefer; the casual Mohawk or formal up-do?

Do what you love, Love what you do!
