1. Topknot

Nicole Richie's nuptials to Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden were everything she had ever dreamed of. The most spectacular of all was Nicole herself in one of the three Marchesa gowns she donned that night with hair tied into a perfect topknot.  It is best to keep the hair simple when the dress is so detailed and she achieves this beautifully.  It’s also a nod to the 60’s retro chic in a very modern way.

2. Side Swept

De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres wed in a small, private ceremony nearly three years ago.  Both women were glowing on their big day, but it was de Rossi’s up do that caught our eye.  Her hair is so elegantly swept off her face and plays off of the low, plunging neckline of her dress to elongate her figure. Hair accessories are especially fun to play around with if the dress is simple. It adds fun and glamour to any style.

3. Loose Up Do

Songstress Katharine McPhee married producer Nick Cokas in a traditional ceremony at the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church in 2008.  McPhee looked stunning in a Spanish Chantilly lace strapless gown with hair loosely pulled to the side, revealing spectacular chandelier earrings.  If you are having a more traditional wedding, this hairstyle offsets that and makes it feel more low-key and playful.

4. Bouffant Up Do

Gwen Stefani is the ultimate rocker chick and wed fellow musician Gavin Rossdale in 2002. The bouffant up do is so Gwen and plays off her avant-garde pink and white John Galliano dress; it’s really important that your wedding look reflects your personal style because it is a moment that you will remember forever.

5. Pin Curl Up Do

Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley held their winter wonderland nuptials in Utah. Her pin curl up do is reminiscent of an old Hollywood starlet and we love how she takes the retro style one step further with a bird cage veil.  It’s quirky yet classic.
