African American Wedding Hairstyles – The Perfect One

There really aren’t that many African American wedding hairstyles out there, so when my cousins wedding FINALLY rolled around, I had no idea about what I wanted to do with Bunny’s hair.

We bounced around a few different ideas for weeks, everything from a braid out to a twist out to a Bantu knot out (there’s a lot of “outs”) to Curlformers.

After talking about it for awhile, we decided on this style!

What all of you don’t know is that I have been working on my twist outs for MONTHS now!

Twist outs are my very favorite natural hair style out there and I really wanna learn how to a great one and I am so proud of this one.

Products used:

* Shampoo
* Conditioner
* Wide Tooth Comb
* A Hair Bow
* Lots of hair clips to section
* Peanut Oil

To begin this hair do, I washed Bunny’s hair (for those of you that don’t know this, Bunny is my nine year old sister) in four braids with Honey & Almond Moisture Whip Shampoo.

I didn’t focus too much on her strands, but on her scalp instead because that’s where the product build-up would be.

Once her hair was washed, we went to our room and put a movie on while I started her hair.

I clipped three of the sections out of the way, leave one free in the back.

I sectioned off an inch-by-inch section, added lots of VO5 conditioner, combed it through one more time, then started two-strand twisting the section, twirling her hair’s ends around my finger when I reached them.

Okay so this part is really important! I tied a scarf around the edges of her hair while I was twisting.

This way, her twists wouldn’t start right along her hairline for a cleaner, neater look.

And the white stuff is conditioner

I removed her twists two days later.

To do so, I added peanut oil over the twist, then slowly pulled the two strands apart.

I am so proud of myself for achieving this hairstyle.

I’ve wanted to do a really great twist out for several months now!

I’m pretty excited.
