6 Wedding Hairstyle Ideas Inspired By Your Favorite Celebrity Brides


Brides-to-be are pretty lucky to have all the stunning celebrity wedding looks of the past year to go by. From Meghan Markle's royal extravaganza to Gwyneth Paltrow's backyard barbecue and Priyanka Chopra's multi-day Indian spectacular, 2018 has certainly been a whirlwind of weddings to remember. And while a custom designer gown might be slightly out of your price range, you can still achieve your favorite celebrity bridal looks with these wedding hairstyle ideas.

It's nothing less than downright overwhelming to choose a hairstyle for the big day. While there's hardly a more appropriate occasion than your wedding day to get all glammed up, no bride wants to walk down the aisle looking like somebody else. Perhaps that's why Paltrow stuck with her usual loose waves for her wedding day, or why Mandy Moore wore her signature look with fun floral pins.

Whether you're dreaming of a fancy updo or would rather keep it simple with an elevated version of your everyday look, these six celebrity hairstyles — from Serena Williams' sleek side bun to Kate Upton's fairytale waves — will have you looking (and feeling) your best on your special day. And isn't that what every bride wants?

Gwyneth Paltrow's Loose Waves

Although Goop's creator has a reputation for being over-the-top, she opted for her everyday loose waves on her wedding day. Often times, brides seize the opportunity to sport the most elaborate updos on their big days, but Paltrow kept it surprisingly casual. Her piecey waves were tidy and low-key.

The hairstylist behind Paltrow's look, Orlando Pita, told Harper's Bazaar that he used this 1.75" iron to curl the bride's hair in four large pieces on each side.

Meghan Markle' Wispy Low Bun

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal ceremony was inarguably the wedding of the year. The Duchess walked down the aisle in an elevated version of her signature low bun. She parted it in the middle and kept a few wispy, face-framing pieces out of the updo and pulled behind her ears. Markle's go-to low bun is the perfect bridal hairstyle for wearing a veil, too.

Living Proof

Markle's low bun had tons of volume, which can be copied by teasing your hair at the crown and spraying roots with this dry shampoo, a Sephora bestseller that's loaded with fast-absorbing powders that soak up any oils weighing your hair down. And it includes a time-released fragrance that will keep you smelling fresh throughout the day, too.

Miranda Kerr's Sleek Middle Part

The former Victoria's Secret Angel got married in a dreamy Dior ballgown this past summer and wore the prettiest white flower crown with her bridal look. The model wore a different version of a low bun than Markle, with Kerr's being slicked back, parted in the middle, and tied up in a tight knot at the nape of her neck.

Gel Sérum



Kerr's signature wet hair look requires a serum that will make your hair shine all day. This gel formula contains gold flecks that reflect light for the ultimate sheen look. Just rake a dollop of serum through your damp hair with a comb.

Mandy Moore's Flower-Adorned Curls

Mandy Moore had the wedding that every little girl has dreamed about in Nov. The singer-turned-actor walked down the aisle in a pink ruffle-tiered, polka-dotted gown and ultra-sheer veil. She wore her hair down in voluminous curls, tucked behind her ears, and to top off the fairytale look, she even accessorized her hair with baby's breath pins, which matched the floral detail on the dress, too.

Serena Williams' Side Bun

When you think of wedding hairstyles, side buns probably aren't the first to come to mind. Serena Williams' look, however, couldn't have been better. The tennis champion parted her hair to the side and slicked it into a big and tidy bun behind her ear — certainly a different kind of updo than the one she wears on the court.

Kate Upton's Pinned-Up Waves

Kate Upton opted for the best of both worlds on her big day by wearing her signature blonde hair down in bouncy, voluminous waves and pinned up on one side. She let her loosely-curled bangs hang around her face on one side, while on the other, she pinned back half to show off her dazzling earrings.
