Wedding Hair and Makeup Ideas from Celebrities

Hairstylists and makeup artists discuss the celebrity styles that brides are requesting for their wedding day, and how they tweak those (sometimes insanely over-the-top) looks for a "real world" wedding.

Michelle Williams
Your hairstylist thinks: Low side-bun

"The low side-chignon Michelle chose for the 2006 Oscars is still one of my most-requested hairstyles," says Chicago hairstylist Morgan Baul. "It's great for a bride who wants to look put-together but not overdone. I start by curling clean, dry hair with rollers; once it's cool, I comb the curls and apply styling cream. If the hair's very fine, I'll use a spray wax for volume and texture. Then I pin the hair in place with bobby pins and finish with hairspray."
