"A few light highlights around Blake Lively's hairline and some shorter pieces framing her face make this style look so soft," says hairstylist Teddi Cranford of White Rose Collective in New York City. To fatten up strands, mist on a hair powder first; Cranford likes Part hair on the side and pull into a ponytail. Leave a section an inch thick free. Braid the piece that's left out of the ponytail, secure the bottom with a clear elastic, and pull on the braid with your fingers to loosen it up a bit. Using a larger elastic, tie the braid into the bigger ponytail. Wrap hair into a bun, keeping it in place with U-shaped pins. If you choose an updo, don't wash your hair the day of the ceremony. "It won't stay," Cranford says. Her trick? Get a blowout the day before for your rehearsal dinner. Then, for your wedding day, your hair will be prepped and ready to style.Getty Images
Perfection is the goal of every bride, but sometimes imperfection makes a greater impact. "Don't worry about every little strand," says hairstylist Mara Roszak of Andy Lecompte Salon in Los Angeles, who created this look for Emma Stone. "Let some of the layers fall out and frame the face and the back of the neck." That doesn't mean going without products, though. She recommends a few spritzes of a lightweight hair spray, like —the unscented version. "Everyone's going to be coming up to hug you all day. You don't want casio to smell like hair products," she says.Getty Images
With a Headband
A jeweled headband is a gorgeous alternative to a veil. "Charlize Theron looks sexy, and the low, roughed-up knot keeps the style from looking dated," says hairstylist Ted Gibson of Ted Gibson Salon in New York City. Having some texture is key: Use a one-inch curling iron to add waves, and secure the hair in a ponytail before twisting up into a side bun. If you have thick hair, try braiding the hair before pinning it up—just muss it up first to make it look less finished. And if the tone of your wedding is more outdoorsy, swap out the headband for a floral wreath.Getty Images
"All women look good with a little volume," Roszak says. To achieve that height for Zoe Saldana, she set her hair in pin curls, then used a three-quarter-inch curling iron to wave pieces around the hairline. She put Saldana's hair into a ponytail, pulling the sides tightly. She broke a one-inch section out of the ponytail, weaving it into a braid. She then pinned the remaining sections into a messy bun before wrapping the braid around it and tucking it in. "You don't want the braid to be hidden," she says. Not sure where to place your veil? Roszak gives two options: "It's more traditional to place it on the crown so you see it head-on. Or to be more modern, place it lower, just above where the bun starts."Getty Images
"This bun is ideal for a classic wedding in a cathedral," Gibson says. And depending on your dress and veil, you can position it in different places. Wearing it close to the crown, as Sienna Miller does, looks youthful, while placing it lower adds a sophisticated feel. As for the volume? "Before you roll the hair into the bun, back-comb, back-comb, back-comb," Gibson says. "It will help give texture and that perfectly round shape." To keep it in place, he recommends using U-shaped hairpins over bobby pins, since they can hold a larger amount of hair.Getty Images
There are enough details surrounding your wedding to make you nervous; you don't need the added stress of trying a new haircut. "This is really great for those with long hair, because it gives the illusion of side-swept bangs without having to actually cut any layers," Cranford says. That's all thanks to an embellished clip fastened behind Kate Mara's right ear. "You wouldn't want to put it on the side opposite of the bun," she says. "This helps to secure everything."Getty Images
Hair styled close to the head in front of a headband and with volume at the crown gives Alice Eve an edgier take on a classic style. Cranford suggests that a French twist in the back would be a perfect complement. To keep the volume on top from looking stiff, place a few hairpins in the teased back section. It creates an airy, raked-with-your-fingers look.Getty Images
Sleek Side Part
This timeless bun, positioned above the nape on Emma Watson, is chic and simple but requires smooth hair to start. "Tools are going to be your best friend in achieving this," says Gibson, who suggests flatironing hair first. While a side part works for every face shape, you'll want to adjust the placement if you have a face that's round: It should sit higher on the head to offset the width.Getty Images
"The French twist is a classic," Gibson says. "But that doesn't mean you can't make it even more twisted." Frieda Pinto's soft, pretty take is different because it doesn't start at the nape of the neck. "That's usually what gives the style its tightness," he says. "Starting the roll higher makes it looser. It's not as aging." And don't worry about taming every last flyaway: Keeping a few stray strands adds to this look's effortless appeal.Getty Images
If you have naturally straight, smooth hair, this polished take on the '70s-hippie twist at seen at is a beautiful way to show it off. "The symmetry makes it really elegant," Cranford says, though she wouldn't recommend this for brides with thick, coarse hair.Getty Images
"I'm saying it now: The twist is the new braid," Gibson says. "And hair cascading down the middle of the back is great for a beach wedding." After parting hair down the middle, section off a half-inch piece on each side and twist, wrapping it toward the back of the head. Depending on how embellished your dress is, you can keep the twists in place with a sparkly pin or barrette. To keep soft, romantic waves like Jessica Chastain's from falling flat before cocktail hour begins, spray with a light-hold hair spray, like Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray, before you begin curling; mist hair again with spray afterward to help curls set.Getty Images
"When wearing your hair half-up, it's all about the profile shot," Cranford says. And Diane Kruger's glamorous side detail creates a stunning one. Prep hair with a round-brush blowout, parting it on the side, then use a medium-barrel curling iron to create waves, and brush out the curls. "If your hair is prepped correctly, the curls will stay put. Brushing them out just softens them up" so you avoid the dreaded tight, sausage curls look, Cranford says. Drape hair into a C shape on the side of the part with more hair, and pin to the crown. The opposite side can be simply swept back and pinned in the same spot. To mold that swoop, place a piece of tissue over it, pinning it at the curve with a long silver clip. Spray with hair spray before removing both the tissue and clip. Tease the crown for a little lift. "A bit of height—that's the key to a beautiful profile," she says.Getty Images
If you have short hair, you don't have to grow it out for the big day. "You want to look like you on your wedding day," Gibson says. But if you're planning on making Ashlee Simpson's cut your "something new," visit a stylist no less than two weeks beforehand and ask for a graduated bob and long, eye-grazing side-swept bangs. On the day of, blow-dry hair with a smoothing spray, like and a flat brush, polishing any unruly strands with a flatiron. As for the shine, Gibson recommends a one-time allover spritz with —it won't leave a sticky finish—before you walk down the aisle.Getty Images
Big, Bouncy Waves
"Big, sexy hair always works," Gibson says. Chrissy Teigen's voluminous waves are all that and swingy, too. "There's no crunchiness to them," he says. To get that texture, he advises staying away from beachy salt sprays, instead prepping dry hair with a shine cream (like his ) or oil (we love but those with fine hair should just use a drop). Brides with short hair should curl with a half-inch iron, while those with longer lengths can use a one-inch iron.Getty Images
Old Hollywood Curls
Reese Witherspoon's vintage-style curls are just as polished for a fancy affair as an intricate updo. It's important to find a part that works for your face shape (a side part for narrow faces, an off-center part for fuller faces) before you begin curling. "You want your curls to stay put," Cranford says. She recommends two coats of thickening spray (we love ) before wrapping sections of hair around an iron. "If you put too much product in, you can always go back, brush them out, and go over them with a blow-dryer," she says.Getty Images
It's the best of both worlds: Loose hair that's pulled off the face, but not as traditional as a half-up style. Just take a page from Brooklyn Decker's book: "A small twist at the hairline is a great way to keep your hair out of your face, especially if you're getting married on the beach," Gibson says. While this works for most hair textures, you'll want to soften supercurly hair first. Make a side part, and work in a small dab of anti-frizz pomade (Gibson likes ) to eliminate flyaways as you twist a half-inch section along your hairline. Secure with bobby pins. "It just looks so simple," he says. "Like it's something you just did yourself, and that's really appealing."Getty Images
"What makes this appropriate for a wedding is the detail around the face; it's those sculpted waves," Cranford says. To steal Dianna Agron's perfect S shape, try Cranford's trick: After setting curls, pin a piece of tissue paper to that spot where the wave curves. Spray with hair spray, and go over with a blow-dryer on medium heat before taking the clip out. "It molds that shape. The curls are really intact in the front, without looking too precise." Pair with a birdcage veil, and you've got a stunning vintage look.
