Lupita Nyong'o

Virtually effortless, pull hair up and back into a voluminous ballerina bun like Nyong'o. Leave it bare, or wrap it with an elegant ribbon. We're partial to the actress's diamond-encrusted take.

Diane Kruger

Business in the front, formal bridal party in the back, we say "I do" to the actress's low-maintenance hairstyle.

Jaimie Alexander

We love the way the actress's naturally curly texture complements her pinned-back locks. This is an easy wedding hairstyle—especially if you have chin-length (or shorter) tresses like Alexander.

Jourdan Dunn

If you're looking for a wedding hairstyle that's both classic and low-maintenance, channel model Jourdan Dunn's red carpet look with cascading curls and two effortless twists joined easily at the back of your head. Oh, and for any last-minute emergency quick-fixes, keep this handy bridal kit on-hand at all times.

Sophie Turner

To capture the Game of Thrones star's look, simply curl lengths with a wide-barrel curling iron, pull hair (aside from one thick chunk) back into a ponytail, and then wrap and pin.

Chanel Iman

For an effortlessly chic wedding hairstyle, opt for loose, lived-in curls. Extra points if you channel Chanel Iman's covetable just-above-the-shoulder bob—whether you go for the cut or simply pin it from underneath.

Alicia Vikander

One part romantic, one part fairytale, (Beauty and the Beast, in particular), Vikander's gorgeous Academy Awards look is an easy-to-pull-off hairstyle for the big day.

Brie Larson

Do like Brie Larson, and let a showstopping hair accessory take center stage. She keeps the rest of the hairstyle simple with smooth, shiny length and barely curled ends for the epitome of elegance. For a similar silky finish, look no further than Verb's Ghost Oil ($16).

Blake Lively

The actress punctuates her romantic, imperfectly perfect updo with a jewel-encrusted pin at the base of her head and an ultra-thin headband for an extra touch of polish.

Margot Robbie

As the ultimate easy wedding hairstyle, we can totally envision Margot Robbie's loose, romantic braid walking down the aisle. The style is meant to look undone (that's part of the appeal), but make sure any flyaway strands stay out of your face by finishing with a thin coat of Ouai's Soft Hair Spray ($26).

Rihanna

We'll take any chance we get to replicate Rihanna's stunning red carpet hairstyles. And this ultra-feminine half-up look is no exception.

Felicity Jones

If you have bangs, do like actress Felicity Jones and show them off with a simple, Brigette Bardot–esque half-updo.

Hailee Steinfeld

True, this hairstyle might be slightly more complicated than some of the others, but what with its mesmerizing bends and buns, we think Hailee Steinfeld's Oscars look is worth it.

Janelle Monáe

Monáe has made twinkling hair accessories her signature when it comes to the red carpet—a match made in heaven with her closely cropped pixie.

Hailey Baldwin

For a vintage throwback, add a retro-inspired veil to your wedding hairstyle. The model keeps it modern with her slicked-back topknot for a simple, demure take.

Jessica Chastain

Elegant and romantic, the actress's low, bundled-up knots and braids would make for an easy, gorgeous wedding hairstyle.

Jasmine Tookes

By loosely pulling strands back into a relaxed, twisted bun (go for mid-height), the model easily shows off her neck, profile, and gorgeous jewelry. (Which, we might add, is great for those wedding photos.) Jasmine Tookes demonstrates the idea flawlessly, and we're equally in love with her impeccable cat eye.

Elsa Hosk

Keep your wedding look laid-back by accentuating loose, barely there bends with a few strategic pins. This crystal-embellished set of four is perfection.

Fan Bingbing

A tribute to Old Hollywood glamour, Fan Bingbing's voluminous Veronica Lake–esque waves are easy and 100% swoon-worthy.

Imaan Hammam

Model Imaan Hammam demonstrates that curly natural texture is the epitome of pretty for red carpet appearances, and in our opinion, the walk down the aisle. 

Getty Images

Bella Hadid

Show off your cheekbones and flawless makeup application on your wedding day by opting for a sleek high ponytail like model Bella Hadid. (We think it would be especially pretty if you're dress is strapless.)

Zendaya

Zendaya's retro finger waves are one part edgy, one part elegant and would make for one easy (albeit totally chic) wedding hairstyle. Keep it intact with R+Co's Motorcycle Flexible Gel ($26).
