"Fresh flowers add softness and romance to a wedding hairstyle," said George Northwood, who works with Chung. This charming floral crown paired with her ombré waves imparts a youthful, bohemian vibe perfect for a laid-back wedding. To keep the crown in place, Northwood recommended lightly backcombing the top of the hair. "Teasing allows bobby pins to grip to something more substantial and helps anchor the crown to the head," he explained.

For a black tie affair, only the most regal of updos will do. Renato Campora, who sculpted this updo, suggested choosing this look to match the unabashed drama of an ornate gown. Inspired by Botticelli, Campora crafted a flawless braided bun that coiled around to epic proportions thanks to a few extensions. But the key here, he said, is the slicked-back base: "A sleek and clean ponytail to start is essential since it's the foundation of the entire look." Add to that a quarter-size amount ofAlterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil for shine and a blast of Oribe Superfine Strong Hair Spray for hold, and you've got a look fit for a queen.

Although the "Revenge" star's Jennifer Behr broach looked glitzy, her loose and textured top knot added contrast for a more effortless and less contrived feel. In order to balance out the sizable hair ornament, Sally Hershberger's wedding hair wizard Ruben Colon said the sideswept bangs are essential. "It makes the clip more proportional and also keeps the style looking more youthful," he said. To tidy up a top knot just a bit, Colon recommended spritzing hairspray on the backside of a paddle brush and using it as a tool to smooth the surface of the bun.

With its tousled and organic framework that flows into a more carefully crafted low chignon, Jennifer Lawrence's updo provides the best of both worlds. "It is still formal, but fun and romantic," said Jen Atkin, who counts Lawrence as a client. "This look would be great for a fall wedding or for a modern bride who isn't afraid of playing with texture in her hair." To get such great texture and movement, Atkin said it's crucial to start with a nourished scalp. She recommended Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Damage and Color Repair Nourishing Shampoo and Daily Conditioner to prep, followed by Charlotte Ronson A Perfect Mess Beach Hair for ruffled waves that can then be pinned up into a bun at the nape of the neck.
