DIY Bridal Hairstyles for African Hair with Extensions

Your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of your life. You want to look your best and feel confident in your own skin. That’s why choosing the right hairstyle for your African hair is crucial. Whether you have natural hair, relaxed hair, or extensions, there are many beautiful and easy DIY bridal hairstyles that you can create at home. In this blog post, we will show you some of the best DIY bridal hairstyles for African hair with extensions, and how to choose the right Dova Hair products for your wedding day.

Braids and Twists

Braids and twists are always popular when it comes to black wedding hairstyles. They are great for black hair, whether you prefer natural hairstyles or updos and downdos for straightened hair. The standard halo braid updo gets an upgrade here thanks to the addition of two thick twists down the crown1. This style is suitable for hair of all lengths and its simplicity and versatility means it will complement a variety of wedding gowns. It’s a great style for brides and bridesmaids alike, and you’ll have a hairstyle that you can rock post wedding as well.

To achieve this look, you will need some Dova Hair extensions in the same color and texture as your natural hair. You can choose from our wide range of wavy/curly or bone straight extensions, depending on your preference. You will also need some bobby pins, a comb, a hair tie, and some hairspray.

Braids and Twists

Here are the steps to create this braided and twisted updo:

  • Start by parting your hair in the middle and dividing it into two sections.
  • Take one section and braid it from the front to the back, securing it with a hair tie at the end.
  • Repeat with the other section.
  • Take one braid and wrap it around your head, pinning it in place with bobby pins.
  • Take the other braid and do the same, crossing it over the first braid.
  • Tuck in the ends of the braids and secure them with more bobby pins.
  • Take some Dova Hair extensions and clip them in at the back of your head, blending them with your natural hair.
  • Take two strands of extensions and twist them together, starting from the top of your head and going down to the ends.
  • Wrap the twisted strand around your head, pinning it in place with bobby pins.
  • Repeat with another strand of extensions, crossing it over the first twist.
  • Tuck in the ends of the twists and secure them with more bobby pins.
  • Spray some hairspray to hold everything in place.

Side Afro Puff

Pulling your puff to the side is a great way to add flair to a familiar and well-worn afro hair style. It’s literally a new twist on an old favorite and pulling your hair to the side allows you more room and flexibility when adding your favorite wedding hair accessory2. Paired with the perfect floral two-piece bridal gown and pearl earrings, it definitely gives off au-natural vibes.

To achieve this look, you will need some Dova Hair extensions in a curly or kinky texture that matches your natural hair. You will also need some bobby pins, a comb, a hair tie, and some gel.

Side Afro Puff

Here are the steps to create this side afro puff:

  • Start by combing your hair to detangle it and remove any knots.
  • Apply some gel to your edges and smooth them down with a comb or a brush.
  • Gather your hair to one side of your head and secure it with a hair tie.
  • Fluff out your puff with your fingers or a pick comb to create more volume.
  • Take some Dova Hair extensions and clip them in around your puff, blending them with your natural hair.
  • Fluff out the extensions with your fingers or a pick comb to create more volume.
  • Add a flower crown, a headband, or any other accessory that you like to complete the look.

Wavy Chignon

Adding waves to the classic chignon is a great way to create texture and include a bit of vintage glamor to your wedding day hairstyle. This style is all grace and poise3. It works great on relaxed hair but can also be achieved on natural and curly hair that has been stretched, with or without the use of heat.

To achieve this look, you will need some Dova Hair extensions in a wavy or straight texture that matches your natural hair. You will also need some bobby pins, a comb, a curling iron or wand, a hair tie, and some hairspray.

Here are the steps to create this wavy chignon:

  • Start by parting your hair in the middle and dividing it into two sections.
  • Take one section and curl it with a curling iron or wand, creating loose waves.
  • Repeat with the other section.
  • Take one section and twist it from the front to the back, securing it with a hair tie at the end.
  • Repeat with the other section.
  • Take one twist and wrap it around your head, pinning it in place with bobby pins.
  • Take the other twist and do the same, crossing it over the first twist.
  • Tuck in the ends of the twists and secure them with more bobby pins.

Now that you have some ideas for DIY bridal hairstyles for African hair with extensions, you might be wondering how to choose the right Dova Hair products for your wedding day. Here are some tips to help you make the best decision:

  • Consider your wedding theme and style. Do you want a classic, romantic, bohemian, or modern look? Choose a hairstyle and a hair texture that matches your vision and complements your wedding dress and accessories.

Do you want to keep your natural hair length or volume? Choose a wig or extensions that are similar to your natural hair.

Choose a wig or extensions that are the same color as your natural hair or a shade lighter or darker. Do you want to add some highlights or lowlights? Choose a wig or extensions that have some streaks or balayage of different colors.
