"Brides love the Old Hollywood-inspired styles they're seeing on celebrities like Katherine Heigl," says Sadah Saltzman of Salon AKS, in New York City. "To re-create her soft-yet-glamorous do, I make a deep side part, apply a strong hold gel to wet hair, then use my fingers and a comb to create waves in the front; it's best to keep them loose and soft—you don't want the look to come across as costumey. After letting the hair set for as long as possible, I pin it into a low chignon."
