Finding inspiration for your wedding day hair and makeup is a fun challenge that all brides-to-be face, but don’t just limit yourself to Pinterest boards! If you’re keen on discovering a bridal style that is both beautiful and current, one of the best places to turn is to The Oscars awards ceremony, where celebrities come out in droves sporting the year’s hottest red carpet trends.
Hollywood waves never go out of fashion on the red carpet and the same goes for brides! At this year’s Oscars, we saw lots of this fabulous style but Emma Stone is one that really stood out from the crowd.
Glossy and sleek with a deep side parting for that dramatic, sweeping effect Emma demonstrated old school glamour perfectly, which went alongside her vintage-esque gown like a dream.
Paired with light smoky eyes (one of this year’s top bridal makeup trends) and a matte, rose lip, this is a look that would work beautifully walking down the aisle.
For any brides-to-be looking for classic beauty inspiration for their big day, this is it! Oscars, you’ve done it again – good work Emma Stone!
Can you say pregnancy glow? Wow! Rosie looked nothing short of goddess-like as she graced the Oscars red carpet, dressed in a gorgeous Versace maternity gown, on the arm of her fiance, Jason Statham.
There’s no denying that Rosie’s look was ‘radiant’ and everything revolved around her flawless, luminescent skin. With a dress so decadent, it would have been a mistake to go overboard with the hair and makeup, so the choice of a slicked back chignon bun and simple (yet stunning) cat-eye flicks and lightly bronzed skin went down a treat.
If you’re hoping to go for a really elegant look when you say your ‘I dos’, this is something to consider – sometimes keeping your hair and makeup relatively simple but exceptionally flattering is best.
So many brides are concerned about having to grow their hair long before the big day to get a style that they love, but the truth is that short hair can look equally gorgeous!
Scarlett Johansson never fails to impress with her hair and makeup choices and this year’s Oscars was no different. Working with an androgynous look that leans towards the feminine with her selection of pastel, floral dress, gilded eyes and a gentle curl in those locks, this is the perfect example of how short hair can be really versatile.
Root volume goes a long way with cropped style, especially with the overgrown root trend that we’re seeing so much of. Take a leaf out of Scarlett’s book for a cutting edge, but romantic appearance on your wedding day.
All hail embracing natural hair! It’s such a common thing for us to want the hair we don’t have, whether that’s those with straight hair wanting to add in curls or curly haired beauties going at it with the straighteners. However, working with what nature gave us always leads to the most beautiful results, when done right.
Girls with curls know that they can be a challenge to master – you want them big, bouncy and smooth without a hint of frizz in sight! Halle Berry wore this down to a tee at this year’s Oscars ceremony.
If you’ve been blessed with a head full of luscious curls, don’t shy away from them! Wear them loud and proud for your big day.
