We’re delighted to give you some wedding hair inspiration… We give you Oscars’ hair-spiration, by Jo Hoare, style editor of heat magazine.
To be perfectly honest, I really couldn’t care less who wins what during the awards season. I’m not even that bothered about the frocks (sshhhh, don’t tell anyone). I mean they’re pretty and everything, but how many of us have the body or the budget that’ll allow us to copy their look? What I do love every awards’ season is the beauty. A lipstick trend, a new eye make-up trick or super-pretty hair that can be recreated regardless of our bank balance or dress size. And being a bride-to-be myself, this year’s awards are proving to be the perfect big day beauty inspiration.
I’ve picked my favourite four hair styles from last night’s Oscars and I think there’s one for you no matter what kind of bride you want to be.
For vintage brides: Miley Cyrus’s faux bob
If you want to totally transform your look for your big day without going for the chop then a faux bob like this is perfect. Simply tong your hair, then fold underneath at the nape of your neck and pin. Allow the shorter layers to fall loose and voila! a fob for the day! This would look amazing with a 1920’s style vintage wedding dress.
For modern brides: Gwyneth’s sleek ponytail
If you’re all about sleek, clean lines, this is the ultimate in grown-up glamour. The side parting makes a statement but it sweeping enough to be flattering on the face. This would be brilliant for a bride who really wants to show off her shoulders and décolletage with her dress.
For pretty brides: Stacy Keibler’s relaxed waves
Who says you have to go for an up-do? These soft waves spotted by George Clooney’s other half are anything but casual but definitely don’t feel too done. You could add a pretty comb or clip if you wanted to dress the style up a little. Choose this if you’re having a romantic theme. It’d also be a great look for grown-up bridesmaids.
For sassy brides: Emma Stone’s swirled bun
For a bride who wants to nod to this year’s fashion, then Emma’s up-to-date bun is perfect. (Rachel Southwood: Still trying to find a great picture of the back of the hair for you.) It would be super pretty with veil and is a look that works as well for night as it does day. It has the added bonus of giving your guests something to admire while you have your back to them during your ceremony.
