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

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

We love the way Jaimie Alexndaer'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.

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.

Going for a boho bridal look? Make like Laura Harrier and opt for a low, loosely curled ponytail with face-framing curls. It's simple, romantic, and effortless to achieve.

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.

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.

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 ($18).

Blake Lively 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 playfulness.

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).

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.

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 with its mesmerizing bends and buns, we think Hailee Steinfeld's Oscars look is worth it. 

Janelle Monáe

Janelle 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 Bieber

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

Jessica Chastain

Elegant and romantic, Jessica Chastain'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), Jasmine Tookes easily shows off her neck, profile, and gorgeous jewelry. (Which, we might add, is great for those wedding photos.) We're equally in love with her impeccable cat eye.

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

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

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.

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

Zendaya's retro finger waves are one part edgy and one part elegant, and would make for one easy (albeit totally chic) wedding hairstyle. Keep it intact with R+Co's Motorcycle Flexible Gel ($28).
