In a world of ever-changing makeup and hair trends, women are embracing their natural hair more than ever. Celebrities like Solange Knowles, Janelle Monáe, and Viola Davis have resisted processed, damaged tresses in favor of natural curls or coils.
“Brides are embracing their natural hair texture!” says multicultural hairstylist Dee Rouzan. “Some of the more popular natural hair bridal hairstyles include textured afros, twist-outs, locs, and textured ponytails. Many of the styles include either the client’s natural hair or natural hair extensions.”
