What's your idea for The Knot?

Hair Styles for African American Women

Hello,

I think it would be a great idea to post wedding hair styles for African American brides who have natural hair. So many of us wear our hair in its natural state and we would love to have ideas on how we can style our hair on our special day. I have looked through the hairstyles that you have an none of them work for African American women who have natural hair...it sort of makes us feel left out or unimportant as it relates to your target audience.

    Thanks for bringing this topic to us. We will be sure our editorial staff sees this request so as they look at the styles and beauty treatments moving forward we can keep this in mind. I will say that some of our models do come from the vendors and manufacturers, but they know our brand should talk to all men and all women and keeping up with each community is key.

    Thank you again – I hope that we will start seeing more models in their natural hair soon.

    XOXO,
    Keri

        I love the knot and all it provides for a bride. You all have helped me so much with planning my wedding. However I think you could be even more helpful if you appealed to a wider audience. For example “hair” I’m African American. A lot of the styles where for Caucasian women or women with straight hair. So give more wedding hair style ideas. I used Pinterest mostly for my fashion and style ideas. On instagram I follow a couple of groups like Blackbride1988 and Weddingsonpoint. Maybe collaborations with other groups or organizations will help in this area.
