The Best of Runway Beauty\\nOur favorite hair and makeup looks from the Spring 2011 bridal market shows.\\nWith a few exceptions ([Douglas Hannant](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/douglas_hannant/) and [Melissa Sweet](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/melissasweet/) come to mind...), designers eschewed quirky, theatrical looks and showed off styles that could leap right from the runway to the aisle.\\n\\n[Carolina Herrera](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/carolinaherrera/), whose gowns were inspired by creative women throughout history, showed some of the most distinctive and beautiful hairstyles. This polished chignon was a favorite—the large, single blossom adds a touch of Billie Holiday-style glamour.\\nThis [Carolina Herrera](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/carolinaherrera/) model shows off a bolder approach to fresh flowers. The three oversize calla lilies tucked into her bun are a bit over the top, but somehow the sculptural, sensual quality of the look really works.\\nAnother favorite hairstyle from [Carolina Herrera](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/carolinaherrera/), this time with a Daisy Buchanan-esque vibe. If you're going to be wearing a vintage-inspired gown, this romantic faux-bob is the way to go.\\nIf you want to wear your hair down but out of your face, this hairstyle from the [Rivini](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/rivini/) show is an excellent solution. Just twist back and pin four separate sections at the crown of your head.\\nThis intricate this bun at [Romona Keveza](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/romonakeveza/) was stunning—great for a summer wedding when you want to get all your hair off your neck.\\nA bun-chignon hybrid at [Angel Sanchez](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/angelsanchez/) paired with soft blue-grey eyeshadow—a subtle way to do a smoky eye for your wedding day.\\nGlittery hair accessories were all over the runways—the [Ines Di Santo](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/inesdisanto/) show had some of the prettiest and boldest, paired with off-center updos.\\nAnother favorite from [Ines Di Santo](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/inesdisanto/).\\nAt [Claire Pettibone](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/clairepettibone/), a rhinestone- and pearl-bedecked headband glams up a lacy, off-the-shoulder gown straight from the pages of a Jane Austen novel.\\nIf a really glittery hair accessory is too much for you, this demure half-bun wrap at [Carolina Herrera](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/carolinaherrera/) defines understated glamour.\\nLately, I've been obsessed with braided updos, so I was happy to see a few fresh takes, like this one from [Modern Trousseau](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/moderntrousseau/).\\nA slightly mussed and undone braid from the [Alfred Angelo](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/alfredangelo/) show—the volume and red lips add enough drama to take the braid from \\"everyday\\" to \\"special occasion.\\"\\nHaving a dilemma over how to style short hair? Take a cue from this model at [Rivini](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/rivini/)—a lot of teasing at the crown and slicking back the hair on the sides made her pixie cut look like a fancy updo from the front.\\nThis look from [Jane Wang](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/janewang/) was my favorite updo and makeup combination. The hairstyle looks put-together without being fussy, and the makeup artist nailed the \\"fresh, glowing, and timeless\\" ideal— I especially love how her eyes are lined with bronze-colored shadow.\\nAnd speaking of bronze, sun-kissed, nearly-nude makeup seemed to be a popular choice (and a look I'd recommend to any bride getting married near the beach). The makeup pros at the [Oscar de la Renta](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/oscardelarenta/) (*left*) and [Jim Hjelm](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/jimhjelm/) (*right*) shows did it best.\\nAnother low-key makeup look I loved: berry-stained lips and rosy-pink cheeks. [St. Pucchi](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/stpucchi/) (*right*) paired the combo with shimmery brown shadow, while [Peter Langner](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/vendor/designer/peterlangner/) (*left*) used a wash of plum shadow.\\nBut more dramatic makeup is always acceptable, as long as it's done right. The models at [Anna Maier Ulla-Maija](http://www.brides.com/fashion/dresses/gallery/wedding_dresses/editorspick/designer/ullamaija/) are a great example—their smoky eyes paired with nude lips looked sexy, not draggy.
