Celeb-inspired hairdos for your wedding

This week, we turn to the glitzy red carpet for inspirations on how you can look like a star on your big day.

1. Thought head bands and floral crowns were a no-no? Wait till you see these. Most ideal for outdoor weddings, these looks are top on our must-try list.

Seen with a sparkly head band in the Golden Globes last year, Charlize Theron was a head-turner. To achieve this look, first gather your hair into a deep side-parting, tie the ends loosely into a bun and pin them in place at the nape of your neck. Place the headband, any matching color with your gown, about an inch and a half behind your hairline. Best paired with subtle makeup to complete this sophisticated madame look.

Flowers, on the other hand, add softness and romance to a wedding hairdo. To recreate this whimsical style, look no further than K-Pop diva Lee Hyori, who transformed from her sexy diva image into a sweet princess at her low-key wedding earlier this month. Set in a cottage surrounded by lush greenery in Jeju Island, the charming floral crown was fitting of the laid-back surroundings and a highlight to the bride’s simple white ensemble.

2. Yes, as you can tell, we love hair ornaments. For brides who wish to let down their hair yet worry about it being too plain, a statement-making brooch will be all that you need.

Like Rose Byrne, wearing a Neil Lane brooch in her hair, as well as Sandra Bullock. Sleek and straight hair can be seen as boring at times but the addition of a brooch will up the elegant factor.

Tips to ace this look: Gather a slightly off-center parting, so that it softens the straight hair cut. The placement of the hair ornament is also key. Have it placed directly behind your ear, which makes it less obvious and only fully visible when you turn sideways, for an unpretentious chic look.

3. The bun seems like a favorite choice amongst brides who opt for an updo. Not just the swept-back headmistress look, there are actually many options to do a bun as can be seen on these Hollywood A-listers.

Take a cue from J.Lo if you’re going for a classic princess look at your wedding. A high bun is impeccably chic and guarantees that your hair won’t be out of place the entire night.

As Julia Roberts took to the red carpet, for the premiere of her latest movie “August: Osage County” at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival two weeks back, we can’t help but have our eyes fixed on her tousled bun and loose waves encircling her radiant smile, which in our opinion is the saving grace to the red lacy Dolce & Gabbana dress which was a tad too bulky for our liking. The tousled bun is a look that provides the best of both worlds – still formal yet fun enough for an after-party.

Haven’t had braids since primary school? Add a twist into schoolgirl braids by having them in your bun to achieve a regal look, like forever stunning Amanda Seyfried.
