Whether you’re planning your own wedding or plan to attend the wedding of another, you’ll need ideas for hairstyles that will look great on the day. It can be a good idea to start your search by looking at what celebrities choose to do with their hair when they attend glamorous events. Here are a few standout ideas to try.
1. A braided chignon
A chignon is a popular hairstyle that involves wrapping the hair into a bun and wearing it at the back of the head. Grace Kelly wore a variant of the chignon the day she married Prince Rainier. It’s an easy style to create and to pull off. If you’re the bride, this is a style that can go great with a tiara.
2. Bohemian waves and a flower tiara
Bohemian or ombré waves can help you experiment with a youthful, flower child look. It involves letting your hair hang in loose curls on either side of your head. Topping it off with a flower crown should complete this image. Alexa Chung is sometimes photographed with this look. The great news is that this wedding hairstyle is quick and easy to do.
3. A regal updo
A tight updo, where you have your hair tightly scraped back and gathered in a high bun, can look great at any black-tie affair or wedding. It can be grand enough to help you pull off an ornate gown. Paparazzi photographs of Amanda Seyfried sometimes show her favoring this particular hairstyle at events.
4. A ponytail
If you’re someone who doesn’t have much time for fussy hairstyles, a ponytail is both easy and elegant. You can choose different types of effect with a ponytail, too. A high ponytail the way Jessica Alba often wears it, for instance, offers a great image of bouncy youthfulness.
5. Braided hair
Wearing your hair in a braid can help you look partly edgy and partly conventional. Lucy Liu is one of the most famous actresses who prefer braids, whatever major event she attends – the Golden Globes or the Oscars. If you have the volume that Lucy Liu has, braids can be an excellent idea.
6. Loose, high-volume curls
Some brides prefer hairstyles that make them look like a completely different person on their wedding day. Others, though, simply want a style that helps them look like a slightly more glamorous version of themselves. If this is you, you should try experimenting with letting your hair down and setting it in loose, spread out curls. You will get plenty of volume and playful charm.
