The wedding season is upon us and we are scrambling over the Internet to find just the right looks to be wearing as we celebrate a night partying with our family and friends as their esteemed guests. While the dresses we wear are undoubtfully one of the most important aspects of our fashion sense, the hair makes or breaks the look. After all, perfectly made up hair can have any dress look wedding-worthy. This is one of the main reasons we have put together this list of incredibly lovely wedding guest hairstyles for summer, in order to help the ladies struggling with their themed looks for some of the most memorable days in the year.
When we look to awesome hairstyles, the best inspirations often come from lovely celebrities. Some are more toned down of course, in order to better capture the elegance of their spirit, while others are a whole lot more on the extravagant side to really show off the fun nature hidden in their hearts. No matter the hairstyle the ladies have chosen, know that it would do to try at least one during the special occasions coming up over the next few months.
1. The Classic Bun
If you want to go classic, look both sophisticated and thoroughly elegant, you might want to go with the simple classic bun. It certainly suited the unfailingly elegant Hilary Rhoda as she wore it with a lovely side part at the CFDA Fashion Awards. There is an alluring edge to an older woman wearing her hair thus, showing her maturity as well as her unfailing beauty to the world. It is a timeless elegance she exudes and Rhoda shows it off beautifully.
2. The Long Braid
If you prefer a younger look, one that speaks classical, fairy tale and sweetly touching all at once, while still enjoying a bohemian edge that is so in style this year, you might want to opt for the long braided hairstyle that Isabeli Fontana rocked at the Elle Style Awards. Think charming and youthful all in one, while you don’t even have to worry about your hair sticking to the nape of your neck. It is style and comfort brought together in one ‘do. Of course, adding purple lipstick doesn’t hurt your edgy look either.
3. The Right Cut
If you prefer simple, sweet and something that shows off your more down-to-earth attitude towards life, you can go along with the Halle Berry look and get yourself a medium length cut, left wavy and finished off with lovely wispy bangs. The messy look is a sexy one and looked great when worn to the Women Cancer Research celebration. Playing with highlights and lowlights will give you an even better look for a simpler wedding over the summer if you take on this more youthful to middle-aged style.
4. Extending the Cut
If the medium wavy cut appears to be too short and too old for you, you can take inspiration from the pretty little Kylie Jenner, with her positively fabulous face-framing waves that were worn to the launch of the Kendall + Kylie fashion line. A center part, short layers and long hair in general with generous volume was just what the doctor ordered, or at least the stylist, and is one style that you can never go wrong with at your best friend’s unforgettably awesome wedding.
5. Going Retro
Perfect sculpture and vintage styles go very well together when you consider hair, hair and more hair to be dressed up beautifully for that special occasion. Natasha Poly certainly pulled the look off stupendously well as she sashayed into the Sea of Trees premiere in Cannes. She looked beautiful as always, but it was the healthy look of those tresses falling from a side part, over one shoulder and down her back that got us thinking that the red lipstick suits this woman all too well.
6. The Half and Half
If you want to look like you’re done up but not by too much, look charming, but still very stylish, take the Diane Kruger route and go for the ultra-feminine feel of the half up and half down hair styling method, the way it was worn by the actress at the Sea of Trees premiere in Cannes. The slightly messy, positively beautiful design is one that will surely have you feeling sweetly delicious, a fact that will not go unnoticed by the opposite sex, as well as those of the same. After all, who doesn’t want to dance with the belle of the ball?
7. The Ponytail
Unfailingly elegant, the sleek and straight ponytail and certainly a style you can choose to go for, especially if you decide to dress it up with zigzag side swept hair in a copper coloring, baring the beauty of the face to all. We do not suggest going for the dark lipstick Bryce Dallas Howard decided to wear to the Jurassic World premiere, since it keeps things way too bold on the features, especially if you have lovely large eyes like hers. The vampy look aside, the sleek ponytail is so very much in at the moment, particularly for the summer months.
8. The Boho Chic
Keeping with the half and half theme, the boho chic look is one that will certainly fly well, especially at a destination or outdoor wedding. The braids keep half the hair up, while the shorter cut allows for the falling tendrils to look youthful, charming and very much the Southern Belle. Sienna Miller rocked this look beautifully at the Cannes closing ceremony and we cannot imagine a lovely short hair ‘do for a wedding, particularly one under the blazing sun, than this one.
9. The Hair Knot
If you are thinking edgy, sexy, and thoroughly modern, go for the Nina Agdal hair knot that she wore to the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. The messy top knot looked pretty good actually and the flying tendrils here and there gave her a slightly more feminine appeal. Even the hair pulled back was a bit more on the textured side, leaving the ladies coveting the raw appeal of the look.
10. The Side Sweep
Old Hollywood glamour galore! One look we cannot omit from this list is this gorgeous side sweep, with the perfect waves and the absolute loveliness of the ladies who decide to wear it out. Izabel Goulart certainly rocked the look as she walked into the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala with this gorgeous vintage look.
