8 Wedding Hairstyles Inspired by Vintage Beauty Icons
Get wedding-day hair inspiration from Brigitte Bardot, Twiggy, Marilyn Monroe, and more.
If beachy waves or messy buns aren't your thing, take some wedding hair inspiration from the queens of the silver screen. These classics are just that, classic, so no worries about your wedding hairstyle looking outdated in your big-day photos down the line (like say, those leg o'mutton sleeves of the '80s). Here, the most coveted vintage hairstyles for brides to copy.
Steal the French "it" girl style with a sassy yet sexy half-do. To create the look, Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, recommends "winding hair around a curling iron, and keeping the ends looser to create natural looking waves."
The British sensation's hair and doe eyes capture the joie de vivre of the swinging '60s. To copy the top model's look, comb hair into a deep side part, and follow with a keratin-based serum to keep the style ultra-sleek all night long.
To get the jazz singer's iconic look, separate hair at the top of the head into three sections. Apply a heat protectant serum, then curl, twist, and pin pieces into place. Pull the rest of the hair back into a ponytail or bun and accessorize with fresh or faux flowers.
When copying Jane's effortless, boho locks, start with a center part then let your beach waves loose. Toss on a flower crown for the ultimate gypsy chic look!
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but so is the Marilyn bob. Get the tousled "I-woke-up-like-this" style by curling your hair with a marcel iron, then spritzing strands with some hairspray for a long lasting hold. Don't forget that slick of red lipstick!
The Breakfast at Tiffany's chic bouffant still makes us weak in the knees. Glam it up by attaching a sparkly tiara to your veil in true Holly Golightly fashion.
Grace's hair was always modest yet classy. To get the Princess of Monaco's look, brush out your curls with a paddle brush and slick your hair back for a fresh-faced appearance.
