When shopping for your white dress for your wedding, brides can forget about everything else. The wedding beauty timeline tends to be next in line, but what about the hair? Anyone who has fallen victim to a bad hair day knows that it can totally ruin your day. Don’t let that happen on your wedding day! If you want to make sure you have the perfect hairstyle, (a ‘do that’s classic and modern all at once) we suggest you turn to these 10 celebs who recently rocked some stellar hairstyles. These looks will translate seamlessly from red carpet to the wedding aisle.


1. Daisy Ridley’s Braided Twist: So you’re kind of into the idea of a slicked-back updo but are a little intimidated by it? That’s totally okay. For something a little less intense, try this look that Daisy Ridley wore to this year’s Academy Awards. While it looks clean and sophisticated in the front, the back is an intricate, braided mess (and we mean mess in the best way possible). If you want to copy it but you’re not sure where to start, take a look at our step-by-step tutorial. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
