These Celebrities Nailed Classic-Meets-Personal Bridal Hairstyles At Their Weddings

Say “I do” to an updo.


A-listers attend events nicer than most weddings nearly every week, but they’ll always go the extra mile for their nuptials. Red carpet looks have nothing on celebrity bridal hair, which often combines tradition and timelessness with the star’s own personal aesthetic.

While Hailey Bieber’s wedding hair is seemingly straightforward, the inclusion of tiny pearl hair pins by stylist Jen Atkin dressed up the loose, low bun. Though her wedding to Justin Bieber was back in 2019, a more upswept, slicked-down version of the style would become her trademark later.@haileybeiber
Noted naturalista Issa Rae kept her signature red-toned curls for her sun-soaked Italian wedding. Opting for a sleek, brushed-back ponytail that blossomed into lush, back-skimming curls, it’s a flawless blend of shape, texture, movement, and pure romance created by hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood.@joannasimkin
Kourtney Kardashian’s (many) wedding dresses might have been a little controversial, but even the most traditional fans would approve of her sleek, slicked bun. Though largely obscured by her black veil in photos, it’s clear just how fresh and clean the hairstyle looks.@kourtneykardash
From the moment Ariana Grande debuted her engagement ring, fans wondered if she’d wear a ponytail for the wedding — and she kind of did. Stylist Alyx Liu pulled her long hair back into a half-up, half-down bridal hairstyle that split the difference between her iconic updo and a classic blowout.@arianagrande
Expertly shouldering the extra pressure of her 2011 royal wedding, Kate Middleton’s bridal hairstyle balanced an of-the-moment side-part and her go-to bouncy blowout with a crown and a veil. A discreet half-up style, it’s a softer version of the always-chic pulled-back look.PAUL ELLIS/AFP/Getty Images
Everyone knew Jasmine Tookes’ 2021 wedding would provide enough bridal inspo for a thousand Pinterest boards, but did anyone expect an accessory this excellent? To complement her lace gown, Tookes wore a floral headband across her sleek chignon, which was actually part of her veil.@jastookes
Expect to see plenty 2023 and 2024 celebrity brides with curtain bangs, partially thanks to the impact of Nicola Peltz Beckham’s wedding hairstyle. Celebrity hair artist Adir Abergel actually cut her retro bangs just moments before the ceremony began, he shared with British Vogue.@nicolapeltzbeckham
Of course a supernova like Jennifer Lopez couldn’t have just one bridal hairstyle at her 2022 wedding to Ben Affleck. Hairstylist Chris Appleton revealed on Instagram that her hair was sleek and straight for a first look, then pulled back into a glamorous braided bun.@chrisappleton1
Megan Markle’s wedding hair was different from her sister-in-law’s in nearly every way, reflecting her own personal style at the 2018 ceremony. Stylist Serge Normant arranged her long, flowing hair into a loose, romantic chignon, accented by free-flowing pieces and center-parted bangs.WPA Pool/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Blink and you’ll miss the tiny accessories that took Lily Collins’ bridal bun to the next level. After stylist Gregory Russell created a neat, polished bun, he placed a tiny braided section across her part like a headband, with gold wiring adding a burst of shine and color. @lilycollins
