If flat irons, hot rollers, and relaxers just aren't your thing

In a world of ever-changing makeup and hair trends, women are embracing their natural hair more than ever. Celebrities like Solange Knowles, Janelle Monae, and Viola Davis have resisted processed, damaged tresses in favor of natural curls or coils. Lately, we've been seeing this trend filter into weddings, and we've never been happier. If flat irons, hot rollers, and relaxers aren't your thing, then you shouldn't have to force yourself to use them on your wedding day. Besides, it's YOUR wedding day, and you should be able to style your hair in a way that's comfortable to you. If you're looking to transition to natural before you walk down the aisle, consult with your hairstylist before you begin the process.

From styles accented with veils and bits of blooms to minimal no-fuss looks, find your hairspiration with these real brides.
