Bridal Hair Do’s: Inspiration from the Red Carpet…

Almost every bride has a celebrity hairstyle in mind when she comes in for a trial. It’s pretty safe to say that bridal styling often gets its inspiration from the red carpet.  It’s your time to shine like a star if only for one day!  Lets take a look at some of the hairstyles from this year’s red carpet events:

I love this for a garden wedding.  It’s formal enough for a wedding but  the wavy texture and loose pieces make it feel slightly unkempt. This could be really cool for the bride who doesn’t like hair that’s “too perfect”.
Taylor Swift went with her signature curls but this time a little more toned down and with a retro flare.
Carrie Underwood looks beautiful and relaxed in her loose, feather back waves.
Amy Adams looks great in this loose up-style.  I love the soft uneven pieces coming down at the sides, they add  a modern touch.
Selena Gomez looks perfectly stylish and youthful in this soft wavy pony.  Once again the uneven pieces framing the face look great.  I think this would be a great choice for flirty look on a bride.
The French Twist is making a comeback!  Seen here in three different ways, Natalie Portman wearing it very classic and simple, Guiliana Rancic’s looks more loose and sweeping, a little more sexy, and Emma Stone has it all swept away from her face for a very fresh look.  I’m thinking there might be some French twists in the near future of Bridal
This simple up-style is instantly given a whole new look with a subtle wave left out, modern yet perfectly polished.
Mila Kunis looks gorgeous in this vintage finger-wave do!  The sharp side part and low pinning in the back give her a feminine yet bold presence.
Looks like Taylor’s liking the retro hair.  This glossy, wavy, faux bob looks beautiful on  her and is a great way to glam up a simple wedding dress.
Elizabeth Banks is wearing her hair down, wavy and off the side, a la Veronica Lake.
Nina Dobrev got a lot of attention this year for her look at the Emmys.  This down style is perfect for someone with long hair like Nina’s.  If you could look this great on your wedding day, who says you cant wear your hair down?
So This picture is actually from last year’s Emmy awards but I thought the style was deserving of mention.  It’s a perfectly balanced upstyle with volume in the back as well as the front, and I love that its got some texture, not completely smooth.  I could definitely see this on bride.
A pregnant Beyonce looked great at the MTV music awards and her hairstyles never disappoint.  Off to the side, and sweeping over her eyes, she looks sweet and sexy.  I’ve done this type of hairstyle on many brides and bridesmaids.
