Five amazing wedding day updo's

Posted 30 Nov 2017

From slicked-back pony tails and low-rise chignons to the casual glamour of wistful braids, there’s heaps of choice out there if you want to wear your hair up on your big day. Whether you have a cute cropped bob or voluminous flowing waves, we’ve rounded up our top ten Red Carpet updo’s to inspire your wedding day hair look.


Number One: Grecian Glamour

Who: Jessica Alba

Where: Jessica Alba with husband Cash Warren at the 80th Annual Academy Awards Oscars Ceremony LA 2008.


There’s a reason why we all love the Grecian updo – it’s super glam but with a little bohemian twist. When it comes to working the Red Carpet, Jessica Alba is the perfect pinup for the refined and sophisticated Grecian look. See our in depth review of Jessica's style in her style file.

Number Two: The Sleek Pony

Who: Kim Kardashian

Where: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at 'China: Through The Looking Glass' Costume Institute Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York 2015


A contemporary bride should look to a slick pony tail for a modern take on the big day updo. The sleek luminous look gives a mature polished vibe and no one rocks it better than Kim Kardashian. Pair with smoky makeup and super glam jewels to work the look like a pro.

Number Three: The Messy Updo

Who: Kendall Jenner

Where: Kendall Jenner at the gala premiere for "Youth" at the 68th Festival de Cannes, France 2015.


The messy swept-back style is a top hit for a relaxed glam wedding day look. However, Kendall’s take on this style with heightened crown is bang on trend, taking the wispy laidback look from casual to red-carpet-ready in a flash.

Number Four: The Plait

Who: Margot Robbie

Where: Margot Robbie at the About Time Premiere held at Somerset House, London 2013.


Plaits are the top trend tip for 2017 and totally wearable for a wedding. Looking gorgeous with glowing makeup, Margot Robbie adds polish to a classically country-casual look. Keep the look a little un-done for an up-to-date modern take on a traditional style. See our in depth review of Margot's style in her style file.

Number Five: The Chignon

Who: Alexa Chung


Where: Alexa Chung at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center on in Los Angeles 2013.


A timeless wedding day look. However, style guru Alexa Chung shows us exactly how soft waves paired with a low side-parting give the classic chignon a contemporary twist. Plus, the red lip adds a touch of Old Hollywood Glam. A great way to wear short hair up on your wedding. See our in depth review of Alexa's style in her style file.
