6 Bridal Hair Icons

As a bride-to-be, you are no doubt collecting your inspiration from every website, magazine, or book you see. The styles worn by our favourite celebrities can sometimes be make-or-break in the decision-making process.


So, I’ve rounded up 6 celebrities who have worn beautiful timeless styles over the decades to help you realise what iconic looks could be possible for you! Why not combine this inspiration post with my step-by-step on how to find a style that suits your face shape?


Audrey Hepburn

Audrey is something of a poster girl for glamourous short hairstyles. Any photo of her has us all considering chopping off our locks in favour of a sleek pixie cut. Her wedding hair here is a beautiful example of how a short bridal style can look gorgeous next to a high neckline and doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on your floral accessories. For more info on Audrey’s beauty regime, take a look at this article in Vogue.



Amal Clooney

Amal Clooney’s wedding hairstyle is the perfect example of how less is often more. It doesn’t get much more natural than this. The relaxed length of her hair works beautifully with her chosen neckline and long veil, accentuating her height.




Marilyn Monroe

Any list of beauty icons is incomplete without Marilyn Monroe. Her short, blonde, voluminous waves are world-famous, and the simple prettiness of them makes them a timeless bridal style for women of all ages.




Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot’s centre parting and long loose waves are the perfect embodiment of the soft glam style that is currently taking the bridal beauty world by storm. So many of my brides ask me to capture a similar look. For soft fullness in your hair, this style cannot be beaten.




Grace Kelly

If there’s one thing about Grace Kelly’s wedding that people tend to remember, it’s her dress. The high neck and long lacy sleeves are the epitome of grace and sophistication. Her simple, sleek, and tidy up-do hairstyle offers the perfect balance, preventing her look from becoming overly fussy or busy.


The Telegraph


Meghan Markle

The biggest royal wedding we’ve had in recent years, Meghan and Harry’s wedding was a highly televised event! After the big day, one of the most talked about features was the simplicity of Meghan’s bridal look. Her dress was refined, and her hair was a beautiful classic chignon. Her look oozed classic, timeless, romance, and who doesn’t want that?
