With all those premiers, film festivals, parties, awards ceremonies, and multiple marriages, celebrities are frequently spotted in formal updos. All these fabulous hairstyles make it easy for the rest of us to choose from for the weddings, dances, and parties we splurge on stylists for.
Check out this photo gallery for 5 timeless celebrity updos that are perfect for your next big event!
The main thing to remember when choosing your updo from celebrity hairstyles is to let your personal style shine through! Of course, trends influence the hairstyles of the moment but pictures last forever. Pick one because you love it, not because it’s the latest thing.
Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman demonstrate just that above, with ScarJo opting for a modern donut bun worn with messy volume. On the other hand, the Black Swan star shows her love of retro style with finger waves incorporated into her updo. Their looks are quite different but equally beautiful!
Next, the lovely Isla Fisher shows her distinctive style with a unique take on the curly updo. Worn low to one side, this is a rare comfortable updo that doesn’t require upwards of 50 bobby pins! Long bangs are styled to be side swept for a face framing finish that flatters everyone.
The next updo is a mass of loose waves pinned into a messy side bun. Worn by Julianne Hough, this is a gorgeous look for anyone with naturally curly or wavy hair or add in those gorgeous waves if you need to. Check out this unique updo for another way to style this hair texture.
Penelope Cruz wore this simple Audrey Hepburn-esque updo while winning an Oscar and it’s still a gorgeous look for a bride, prom, or anyone looking for a timeless hairstyle. Hair is pulled back into a bun with some volume at the crown and full fringe. It would look great with a touch of sparkle from a crystal hair accessory at the back.
Last but not least is Taylor Swift’s hairstyle from the latest TIFF. This updo combines her love of vintage-inspired style plus the hottest hair trend going, braids. The fishtail braid is wound into a high detail and texture low side bun.
So pick one of these gorgeous celebrity updos for your next big party! There’s one to suit every dress and personal style!
