Chelsea Clinton's Big Day: Hair Predictions, Results, ReactionsChelsea's wedding-day was worn up in a classic, sophisticated updo, that, in my opinion, looked stunning. Today, MODERN polled our Facebook fans, (all 12,000 of you!), and asked, "if you had Chelsea in your chair for her big day, how would you have styled her hair?" Here's what you had to say!

Kristen Aarnio Something a little more loose and romantic looking. I'm not a big fan of what she had. It almost makes her look older.
Mickey Bolek she is classic and elegant. I think she looked great!!
Lisa Lefante Rivoli The classic up do Chelsea wore was classic and elegant it was a perfect choice for her, I thought she looked perfect.
Krystina Tuley i wouldn't change it. it looks beautiful! nothing wrong with the classics.
Susan Bankowski Thorpe I agree with you Kristan...Chelsea needs more softness around her face..she did look beautiful though..
Angela Stewart Down with maybe a few pieces strategically pinned back to accommodate the headpiece. The bridal magazines are showing less up styles lately.
Lindsey N Chris Wagstaff her hair was very appropriate. i wouldn't change a thing.
Sherri Jessee One great thing about a classic style like this is your hair is the LAST thing you need to worry about. Every hair stays in place regardless of humidity or wind. I think she looks lovely.
Jared Cash yeah it really was perfect...wouldn't change a thing
JoEllen Hendrickson O'Neal A fairy tale wedding to beat all...perfect hair for the veil, the bride to show her glowing face to her husband as well as everyone....What a gorgeously designed gown... No words to describe it...I am so glad to view the is a joy to see...And never forget her new husband as well....

Looks like most of the stylists we polled loved the look. I couldn't agree more! Cheers to Chelsea-and to the talented hairdresser behind the look-BRAVO!
