Help with hair styles for 3c hair?

MeeraMeera Posts: 105Registered Users
I've got a big thing coming up and since I'm strictly on a "year without heat" challenge, I would like to refrain from straightening my hair & styling how I know best. I've never worn my curly hair to a party or wedding or anything, so any ideas? It can be an updo, half updo, whatever.

My hair is thick 3c, and I have a lot of strands on my head.

    I have the same hair type, I would braid one side and have the curls flowing. I wear a high bun mostly. Try the high bun first.

    The top knot bun looks great on our hair cause the bun is so thick. Also look up hairstyles on UrbanOG's YouTube channel. Spankie valentine has great hair tutorials for long curly hair

    for my uncles wedding i put my hair up in a high pony tail and kind of flipped it forwards, and pinned same curls forwards, if you get what i mean? so you got a really pretty like waterfall of curls coming down. perfect for thick hair!

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
