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.

Your hairstylist thinks: Double-braided updo

"This is a soft, non-fussy style that's pretty but not too formal," says hairstylist Kara Sánchez of Fabulous Faces Studio 1, in Orlando. "I re-create it by curling sections of hair using 1"- and 2"-barrel curling irons. After gently combing the curls with my fingers, I start at the nape and pin sections up; when I reach the top section, I create two braids—one on each side of the head—and loosely pin them back. I finish with hairspray and a shine spray."

Products to try: Hot Tools curling irons, from $30 each; Bumble and bumble Does It All Spray, $24, and Kenra Volume Spray 25, $17, both
