You’ve picked your dress, your shoes, your something new and your something blue. But what about your hair? Do you know how to style it for your big day? Here are some gorgeous hairstyles the stars rocked on big Red Carpet events this year. Get inspired by your favorite celeb to look amazing from hair to toe on your wedding!
1- Chic Buns
Buns are a classic at weddings because they allow the bride to appear in all her beauty, as they clear her face and make for a great support for the veil. Even though buns are considered a bit classic, they are undeniably classy.
The Oscar-winning actress looked amazing at the 87th Academy Awards ceremony with her pulled-back hair gathered in a low bun with a sleek side fringe. Perfect for elegant brides.
If you have wavy hair and are proud of it, you can get inspired from Emma Stone’s sexy side-swept bangs that let her waves fall graciously on her cheek. And so you’re still in control of your mane, you can gather the rest in a loose chignon.
Now if you’re more of a statement-bun fan, you will love recreating Lupita Nyong’o’s maxi ballerina bun from this year’s Cannes red carpet appearance. Make sure you place it high on your hair, and don’t shy away from bun rings, which will make it appear bigger. For a perfect finish, add hair jewelry or chains, or even a ring of flowers.
2- Styled loose hair
Some brides like their hair to fall freely on their shoulders for their big day, and others would like it to be controlled, even if it’s loose. These two hairstyles are good alternatives for the latter ones.
The lifestyle guru was magnificent at the 2015 Oscars. Her hairstyle created the illusion of her hair being half-up but completely loose at the same time, when it was actually concealing a ponytail under her crown hair. The most important part of this hairstyle is the sleek hair, which makes the whole look.
Russian model Natasha Poly looked ravishing with her side-swept curls falling on her shoulder. It’s a timeless sexy hairstyle for passionate brides.
3- Gorgeous Braids
No matter the way it is styled, braided hair is the trendiest thing that happened in 2015, and the red carpet wasn’t an exception. From a loose fishtail to milkmaid braids, you can’t go wrong with this kind of hairstyle for your wedding, and what’s more: it’s great from integrating flowers, pearls, jewelry and other accessories.
Emily Blunt’s look at the 2015 Golden Globe is the ultimate inspiration for your wedding. Not only did she style her hair with two side braids gathered into a low bun, but she also totally looked like a Greek goddess in a white pleated dress.
Cara Delevingne’s sister stood out of the crowd of celebrities at Cannes this year, by wearing a remarkable green sheer gown and having an intricate braided hairstyle. Her hair was pulled back into untamed braids that gathered to give her a fierce and elegant look.
4- Statement Headpieces
From hairclips to brooches and bows, headpieces can often bring the finishing touch to the whole look. Statement headpieces are no exception, and they reveal all about the bride’s personality.
The sweet artist may just be 18-years-old, but when it comes to fashion and style, this Disney star is wise. She appeared at the 2015 Met Gala in a custom statement star-printed dress, to which she matched a golden sun-filled headpiece, letting her long locks fall loose behind her back. Her stunning look may inspire you to be a dazzling bride!
Rihanna’s 2015 Met Gala yellow dress was the talk of the ball, but let’s focus on her unique golden headpiece that also matched her gown. If you have short hair and have a creative and eccentric personality, you should definitely get a custom headpiece too.
Flower crowns are great for brides, but sometimes they can be a bit difficult to wear. If you’re a romantic bride and would love to put flowers in your hair in an elegant way, you should take these two stars’ example from the 2015 Met Gala.
The actress has a unique refined beauty and gorgeous hair. She went for Bohemian-styled hair with an undone updo and a few sprigs of lily of the valley behind her ear.
Selena Gomez’s hairstyle is a perfected flowered masterpiece, and the greatest inspiration for your wedding. She slicked her hair back into a bun, and wore fresh white orchids styled into a headpiece, which matched her beautiful Vera Wang white dress. Her red lipstick enhanced her Latin beauty and gave her an original bridal look.
