The very best celebrity hairstyles to inspire your big day look

Wedding hairstyles require just as much care and attention as your dress when it comes to the big day. But finding the perfect wedding hairstyle to really offset your white frock can be a challenge. Enter, the celebrity brides.

Create your fairytale wedding hairstyle with a little help from these stunning A-listers. Showcasing everything from vintage wedding hair accessories to intricate bridal updos, there’s something for every occasion. We’ve also teamed up the wedding hairstyles with the best dresses, necklines and jewellery, to help you get a feel for what might work for you.

We’ve been treated to some of the most beautiful celebrity brides over the last few years. Poppy Delevingne wedded long-term boyfriend James Cook in a chic London ceremony, where she wore an exquisite custom-made Chanel gown. For the big day, her hairstylist, Jack Howard, International Colour Director at Neville Hair & Beauty used a balayage hand-painting technique to give it that high gloss, blonde finish.

‘I used L’Oreal Professionnel Platinium for her highlights and Inoa for her lowlights; colour is lightly hand painted throughout to imitate the way the sun would touch and lighten the hair. It’s the perfect sun-kissed look,’ he told us.

Wedding hairstyles for short hair

You might think that if you have short hair you’re limited on the number of styles, . For bob or lob hairstyles, look to Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone or Kerry Washington for inspiration. More of a cropped hair kinda gal? Anne Hathaway, Gemma Arterton and Michelle Williams will provide you with a healthy dose of wedding hair inspo.

If you are longing for long hair on your big day, however, don’t forget that there’s always hair extensions.

Wedding hairstyles for long hair

If you’ve got long hair, you have the luxury of being able to choose between an updo or longer style without the worry of extensions. Whether you choose to go for a poker straight style, loose waves like Sophie Turner or curls like Naomie Harris, the world really is your oyster. And there’s always the half-up-half-down look, à la Alexa Chung.

Don’t forget to prep your hair for the big day – Powder will help you find a heavenly hair mask to nourish your locks!

Wedding hairstyles updo

When it comes to updos, the possibilities are almost endless. Recently we were loving Adele’s Grammys updo, which was styled to perfection. For an updo that frames the face really well, look to The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco or The Crowns Claire Foy.

Whether your hair is long, shoulder length or styled in a pixie crop, we’ve rounded up the very best wedding hairstyle inspiration from the A-list. Scroll through our round up to inspire your own big day…
