Celebrity Inspiration: Wedding Hair

Jessica Galliart | March 9, 2012 | 12:43 AM

Get ready, stylists: Wedding season is approaching! When your schedule begins to fill with consultations and bridal party appointments, consider taking a cue from some celebrities on how to create unique, yet elegant updos and styles for your bride-to-be clients. Here are a few looks to get you started on your quest for wedding-worthy hair inspiration.


Celebrity Inspiration: Wedding Hair

Scarlett Johansson

Not all bridal looks have to include extensions and length. Consider ways you can work with what your client has to create a dramatic yet classic look, like this one from ScarJo, that resembles a modern twist on the Grace Kelly short, formal 'do.

Taylor Swift

Working with a client with some full fringe? The looks Taylor has been debuting on the red carpet with her recently filled out fringe are great for finding inspiration for your bangin' client. Check out this softly pulled back, romantic updo, which is actually placed low and has some fun, twisted details.

Celebrity Inspiration: Wedding Hair

Kirsten Dunst

We get it: It can't be easy for a bride to fully commit to an updo or a style worn down. Try out this half-updo worn by Kirsten Dunst on your indecisive clients who love the idea of a pin-up style but still want to keep things romantic and soft.

Kate Mara

Speaking of accessories, take into consideration the placement of any that your client brings in during her consultation before you being creating her style in your mind. Kate's refined, yet not-so-defined side 'do combined with a bedazzling accessory is magnificent and romantic, but an improper placement of an accessory like this could torpedo the entire style.

Dianna Agron

For the ultra-trendy bride, braids may be the way to go. Suggest a twist on the expected loose, side braid like this "Glee" star's slightly beachy updo, with a detailed braid worked into the style near her hairline. Bonus: Think of how much staying power a braided updo will have throughout the wedding.
