Wedding Day Hair Drama: Natural versus Straight

Would you rock a curly style like this one on your wedding day? Few topics get Black women to go from 0 to 90 in a mili-second like the talk of hair. When I decided to address the issue of brides wearing their hair kinky, curly, wavy, twisted and in locs for their wedding day I knew I was signing myself up to receive very strong opinions. But reading this post from Tia Williams of Shake Your Beauty gave me the final push to post about this pink, striped, polka dot, plaid elephant in the room.

Bridal Beauty: Wedding Day Hair

Actress Keke Palmer is flawless in this wedding day ready hairdo!

Keke Palmer is one of those actresses I feel is underrated in Hollywood. Besides her acting chops, I’m partial to Miss Palmer because I met her a few years back while working at Essence and in addition to being talented she’s a sweetheart.

BlackBridalBliss.com in the News!

Bridal Beauty Booty!

Triple B is in the press again! Yes, this is a shameless plug but danggit I’m proud. I was the market editor and writer of a piece entitled Marriage Material that appears in the current (August 2011) issue of JUICY magazine. There are a dozen or so beauty products featured, all items to help the bride-to-be get beautified on her big day. Click on the image to see an enlarged version. Enjoy and be sure to leave me a comment with the products you like (or want to try) the most.

And a big shout to makeup artist AJ Crimson who came through at the 11th hour for this story. His lip gloss line with Keisha Whitaker, Kissable Couture, is one of my faves.

FYI…I also pen the Iconic Hair page for JUICY every month.

Veteran makeup artist Andrea Fairweather chats with Triple B about putting your best face forward on your wedding day!

Today’s featured expert is makeup artist Andrea Fairweather of Fairweather Faces. Andrea has been doing her thing for over 20 years and has provided her services to over 300 brides!

As a dark skin woman, I was extremely skeptical about her choosing flattering shades for my complexion.
