Olivia Palermo, our June/July cover girl, didn't get her fashion icon reputation for no reason. The entrepreneur (she runs her own e-commerce site oliviapalermo.com) and bride-to-be always steps out in perfectly coordinated, ladylike, and enviable ensembles. Her Brides cover and inside photo shoot take her trademark style to the height of bridal glam (the lace fit-and-flare Elie Saab wedding dress with sheer ruffle skirt and long sleeves is an instant classic). But we'd be remiss to discuss her style without mentioning her hair, an integral part of her beauty look.
Palermo credits her shiny, thick, and healthy locks to her mother, who shares that genetic gift. Instead of always wearing her perfect hair down (though she totally could), Palermo mixes it up with tons of wedding-worthy hairstyles that brides everywhere can emulate. What she does best is taking classic styles and giving them a classy, Palermo twist. We found ten looks that show how, with the right product and tool, brides can look like Palermo for their wedding.
Case in point: Her note-perfect half-up hairstyle (top left), the epitome of bridal glam. It showcases her trendy center part and shiny, wavy strands. Palermo's lovely ballerina bun (top right) is the ideal hairstyle for a veil, while her twisted updo (lower left) is equally veil-friendly, though with enough of a spin to make it still stand out on its own. We love her braid (lower right) for its romantic volume at the crown, which adds height and excitement to the red-hot bridal look.
