When meeting with your hair stylist and/or makeup artist, it can be a good idea to bring photos of looks you love to help your pro get a sense of the styles you like. Often, celebrities’ red carpet style can provide great inspiration for wedding-day hair and makeup looks. But, which celebs do brides particularly love? We asked 6,500 WeddingWire users to share their wedding-day icons—and here are the results! For more hair and makeup inspiration, visit our WeddingWire photo galleries!

Spring Hairstyles We Love

Celebrate the breezy, revitalizing nature of the season with a fresh, fuss-free hairstyle. Here are our favorite picks for brides (and bridesmaids!) heading down the aisle this spring.

Braided Chignon – This style strikes a lovely balance of polished and playful as thick strands weave their way into strategically disheveled side knot. Stunning!

Fishtail Braid – This trend is perfect for spring brides with long locks. A refreshing take on the standard braid, the highly textured two-strand plait has a vivacious, carefree appeal.

Side Pony –  Sweep hair into a low, wavy ponytail to keep it in place without sacrificing movement. Playful and oh so romantic!

Loose Curls – Soft, tumbling swirls are gorgeous for spring. Keep hair from falling in your face by twisting the front strands back behind one ear and securing them with pretty spring blooms.

Low Twisted Bun – A snugly wrapped side bun is the perfect way to give structure to unruly tresses while maintaining that soft, effortless effect.
