Celebrities can serve as a really great form of inspiration for brides! From red carpets events to even their own wedding day looks, celebrities offer a different take on some styles you may not have thought to try for yourself! When it comes to picking a wedding hairstyle, you have more options than just the ones you see on Pinterest and Bridal Magazines – just look to your favorite stars for the ultimate celebrity wedding hair inspiration!

1. SWEPT AWAY

Updo’s aren’t nearly as structured as they used to be. You can have a low chignon with intricate designs or a side swept hairstyle that leaves way for a gorgeous headpiece.  Choosing a wedding updo with your hair swept back allows for the focus to be on the beauty of you!

3. BRAIDED BEAUTY

If you want to take your hair to the next level on your wedding day adding the unexpected element of a braid can do just that. This is not only a fun look, but can undoubtedly be romantic if you decide to pair it with a gorgeous head piece. Instead of a flower crown, opt for a braided crown with beautiful babies breath thrown in.

Braided hairstyles can be a bit tricky to try on your own, but thankfully the ladies over at VeryHair have some of the best tutorials around, including this easy to follow half up, half down braided look!

The best piece of advice I received while prepping for my wedding was to do things that felt like “me.” Meaning not to choose a hairstyle just because it looked pretty, but to choose a style that I would look back on in 10, 20 or even 30 years and say that was totally me! So if you’re not a fan of how your hair looks pulled all the way back or up, odds are you won’t really be too thrilled with the look for your wedding either.

Another important thing to keep in mind while choose a hairstyle is the style of your dress. If you have a beautiful neckline or gorgeous detailing on the back, you’d probably want to showcase that as well, so choose a hairstyle that aligns with that!

Is there a celebrity whose tresses you adore?! What style is your favorite for wedding day hair?
