When it comes to choosing a bridal hairstyle, the choices can be overwhelming. Leave it to one bride, however, to show that a simple 'do makes the biggest statement of all. On her wedding day, Nakyia Whitty didn't get beach waves or extensions. She simply wore her hair natural, accessorising only with a dainty flower. In Instagram snaps that have since gone viral, the bride and her bridesmaids all wore Afros as a way to celebrate who they are.
"Wearing my natural hair signifies who I am as a black woman, who God created me to be. I love my natural tresses," she said to BuzzFeed. "I wasn't always natural, but when I started this journey I began to appreciate and love what I was born with."
