Emma Roberts proved that sometimes less really is more with this subtly styled bob. The actor wore her short, choppy cut straightened and turned under at the ends while attending a benefit in Beverly Hills in Dec. A slightly off-center part along with a gold hair clip elevates this casual look enough to be worn on your special day.
Chrissy Teigen arrived at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Sept. donning a hairstyle that's just as sophisticated as it is easy to achieve. Mimic her red carpet look by working a strong-hold gel through your hair, focusing your energy on securing the roots and leaving your ends wavy and wet.
Kat Graham made a case for pairing piece-y bangs with a dressed-up look at Ebony's Power 100 Gala in Beverly Hills on Nov. 30. The actor combined a chin-length bob with brow-skimming bangs for a unique take on red carpet hair, an event easily translated to wedding attire. Picture her textured cut with a white silk gown, glowing skin, and glossy pink lips.
Amandla Stenberg attended the Make Equality Reality Gala in Beverly Hills on Dec. 3 in a stunning look. The actor pushed back her curls with a gold headband, showing the power of a great hair accessory. Using a headband on your wedding day can add a hint of old-school glamour without distracting from your dress.
Lucy Hale's hair look at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards showed just how elegant a braid can be. A style that was once looked at as playful or juvenile has transcended its reputation to become something totally fashion forward. Add a braid to the back of your wedding updo for an unexpected, contemporary twist.
While you may think having super-short hair is limiting when it comes to styling, there are actually plenty of ways to switch it up. For a formal event like your wedding, a soft swoop will do the trick. Michelle Williams, a pixie veteran, definitely knows the ins and outs of styling her cut according to the occasion. While attending the 2018 Met Gala, the actor pushed her blonde bangs to the side creating a soft, sleek finish.
Take a cue from Scarlet Johansson, who's donned plenty of short styles over the years, and experiment with bended ends as you walk down the aisle. The actor wore a flippy blowout at the People's Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California on Nov. 11. If you have a special pair of earrings you're dying to show off, this behind-the-ears flip is made for you.
