Fresh Celebrity Wedding Hairstyles for Inspiration
When it comes to wedding hairstyle ideas, celebrities are a prime choice because of the number of red carpet events they have to attend every year and it is expected that their hair is styled in formal looks.
There are so many of these hairstyles to choose from and in this series, 4 wedding hairstyle ideas are presented from gorgeous looks…
Finding wedding-appropriate hairstyle inspiration at the MTV Video Music Awards is a tall order—this year there was Katy Perry rocking mauve-colored locks, Adele wearing what looked to be Ricki Lake’s wig from Hairspray, and some sort of acid trip taking place on top of Nicki Minaj’s head.
But while it was mainly Beyoncé’s protruding belly turning heads as she announced her pregnancy on the red carpet, I was totally enamored of her sideswept hairstyle. I think this glamorous look would be an excellent compromise for brides who can’t decide if they want to wear their hair up or down.
Anne Hathaway’s Loose Waves
The time for tousled, beachy summer hairstyles is almost over. As we head into the rustic wedding territory of fall, the polished, side-parted ‘do that Anne Hathaway showed off at the London premiere of her new movie One Day caught my eye. Her retro-glam cascading waves elevated the handmade feel of her ivory embroidered Alexander McQueen dress—the combination would look positively beautiful at an elegant barn wedding.
Chelsea Kane’s Faux Updo
Last month there were a few reader requests to see more wedding hairstyle ideas for short hair. You can browse the mother lode in our hairstyle gallery, but I also had to share this faux updo that Chelsea Kane sported at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. While it looks like Chelsea has her hair in a fancy updo, the Disney star actually has a short, chin-length bob—so there’s some trickery going on here.
While I couldn’t find any good shots of the back of Chelsea’s head, I’m going to venture that her hairstylist did a lot of teasing at the crown, then pulled her locks back, pinning and spraying them into place, then leaving a few pieces loose in the front.
If your hair is super-short and you’re worried about the back looking like a mess of bobby pins, I’d suggest covering them up with a fabric flower, hairpiece, or veil. How are you going to be wearing your short locks at your wedding?
Analeigh Tipton’s braided bun
The other week, we asked our Facebook fans what they thought of Blake Lively’s beachy/bedhead take on the fishtail braid, and the general consensus was that the style wasn’t polished enough for a wedding. Well, I think actress Analeigh Tipton (you may remember her from Cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model) has figured out how to make a fishtail braid wedding-worthy. At the recent premiere of Crazy Stupid Love, she had her fishtail braid pulled back into a bun, and she topped off the hairstyle with a delicate crystal headband (I found a similar one on Amazon for $30). Paired with pink blush and coral lipstick, I thought the whole look would translate beautifully to a bride. (Lauren Matthews)
Nicole Kidman’s Bohemian Braid
I’m sucker for a braided hairstyle, so I love the bohemian side braid Nicole Kidman recently rocked at the Billboard Music Awards.
I even think her choice of earrings would be so lovely at a supercool, carefree wedding. Here’s how hairstylist David Babaii created the look: After applying Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment to her entire head for luster and shine, he then parted the hair to the left.
Using a one-inch curling iron on her bangs, he wrapped and released each strand very quickly and pulled on the ends to create more of a wave than a full curl. (Tip: Rotate the curling iron in multiple directions to add dimension.) He then pulled her hair to the right side and created a long braid. To finish, he applied an additional bit of the Pequi Oil Treatment from her part down to mid-length, to smooth and prevent flyaways. (Lauren Matthews)
