Springtime translates to wedding season, which means the invites have been sent out, your dress is sorted, and you know exactly which heels to wear with it. Now it’s time to start thinking about your hair. We’re looking to past editions of the Oscars, Grammys, SAG Awards, and BAFTAs as there’s plenty of inspiration to be found on the red carpet. Whether you’re a bride-to-be seeking the perfect updo, a bridesmaid with an unfussy aesthetic, or a guest who loves a good accessory, there’s a style for you. Promise.
Up and Away
If chic chignons and wispy updos evoke your inner star, then we have a few styles for you to cop. Try Gemma Chan’s romantic look, channel Lady Gaga with a high updo, or go the Irina Shayk route by slicking it back.
Details, Details, Details
You love to experiment with your beauty looks, and who can blame you? Hair should be fun! This red carpet season, we saw no shortage of hairstyles that came a little extra in the form of hair accessories. From Lucy Boynton and Ashley Graham accenting their hair with black bows to Emily Blunt sporting a Lelet NY ‘Exes Crystal Barrette’, the inspiration is endless.
Easy Does It
You’re a no-muss-no-fuss kind of girl and don’t want to spend hours getting ready, which is why casual waves or boho beachy vibes are your go-to. Luckily for you, it’s possible to rock this look and still be event-appropriate – even stars like Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez let their hair down from time to time. Don’t feel pressured to go all out because all you need to do is give your hair a little curl or pull it back to look sleek à la Adriana Lima.
Short and Sweet
We saw a major surge of short hair on the red carpet, as the bob is officially back. Irina Shayk went for a sleek style, whilst Brie Larson kept hers natural and wavy. So whether you have a bob or a lob, you can still play with texture, side parts, and backcombing to stand out.
