Here are some wedding hairstyles inspiration from celebrities.
Diane Kruger’s Jeweled Finger WavesDiane Kruger’s Jeweled Finger Waves
Finger waves like the ones Kruger sported at a 2007 event were all the rage in the ’20s but remain a timeless and elegant wedding hairstyle. The jeweled clips add an extra bit of glam to her low chignon.
Carey Mulligan’s Wavy Pixie
Whether you opt for for a retro updo or deep red lips, we found celebrities sporting The Great Gatsby-esque looks that are perfect inspiration for your wedding-day look.
Daisy Buchanan herself makes a classic 1920’s coif look thoroughly modern with winged eyeliner and nude lips. A cropped, wavy style like this is a glamorous, low-maintenance wedding day look.
Katharine McPhee’s Tousled Pinned-Back Waves
The Smash star’s milky-white skin is a throwback to ’20s makeup trends, when women doused their faces in powders to achieve snow-white visages. McPhee’s bright lips and arched brows, along with her pinned-up and tousled waves, complete her retro look. Vintage-loving brides should keep this look in mind for their big day.
Taylor Swift’s Soft, Swept-Back Waves
Swift’s lips have a natural cupid’s bow shape, a silhouette that many ladies in the ’20s emulated by applying their lipstick in exaggerated lines. Swift played up her pout with a pop of red lipstick, while her pinned-up waves also echoed 1920s hairstyles. Try a similar look for a romantic springtime wedding.
Charlize Theron’s Low, Side Chignon
Before you get blinded by the utter flawlessness that is her face, note Theron’s fun, vintage-inspired hairdo. The glittery headband is a glamorous addition to her low, side chignon that recalls classic ’20s hairstyles. A whimsical summer wedding is a great time to sport a similar style.
Gwen Stefani’s Retro-Inspired CurlsStefani is a known retrophile, so it’s no surprise that she completely rocks this totally-’20s look of pale skin, red lips, arched brows, and curly bob. If you want a Great Gatsby or ’20s-themed wedding (as opposed to just -inspired), try out this fabulous look.
Jessica Alba’s Sleek Waves
Smooth-as-silk waves like Alba’s are Old Hollywood-gone-gorgeous and a wedding-day must for brides who want to wear their hair down. Alba’s deep red lips are also a nod to one of the most popular shades from the ’20s.
Amy Adams’s Versatile Updo
Amy Adam’s finger wave updo is a chic choice for a flapper-inspired affair. We’re also loving how versatile it is—sleek on one side, loosely waved on the other.
Dita von Teese’s Twenties-Inspired Manicure
Von Teese is known for her ’40s pinup look, but the nails she sports here are classic Jazz Age. Women in the 1920’s often painted their nails with red lacquer—but the mode was to skip the moons and tips! Von Teese’s white-mooned nails are a modern take on the style that would stand out in wedding photos.
Marion Cotillard’s Glamorous Faux-Bob
The French actress played the part of a ’20s-era siren in Midnight in Paris, and she looked the part at the 2010 Met Gala. Cotillard made a retro statement with her long hair in a faux-bob—a style that works great with a birdcage veil. Her heavy bottom-lash mascara and smoky, gray eyeshadow evoke some of the decade’s popular makeup trends.
Jessica Chastain’s Slicked-Back Waves
Chastain’s slicked-back waves at the 2013 Golden Globes were the perfect marriage between a modern and romantic look. Her berry-colored lips and drop earrings exude a Gatsby glam that befit a vintage-inspired wedding.
Megan Fox’s Long, Lush Waves
Fox’s long, lush locks work for any type of wedding—from romantic and glamorous to retro and classic—any time of year.
