Maria Menounos looks the part of a glamorous June Cleaver-esque housewife with this voluminous hairstyle for long hair. For Maria’s look, choose an elastic headband in a color close to your natural hair color for easy blendability. This summer wedding hairstyle works best with a traditional veil to create a vintage look.

Fishtail Braids

A multi-braided look gives off a romantic bohemian vibe when worn as a summer wedding hairstyle. Blake Lively pulls off the look (okay, she pulls off EVERY look) with the addition of a jeweled hair accessory.

Half-Up Hairdo

From short, sassy haircuts to a demure curled hairstyle, Dianna Agron has some of the best celeb locks around. This half-up style stays natural looking with 1-inch curls and a sprtiz of lightweight hairspray. A little teasing at the crown keeps the style from looking stiff.

Swept-Back Style

Carrie Underwood took a break from her country curls to rock this sleek style at the American Music Awards a few years ago. To get Carrie’s style, back comb hair starting about half way back on your head. Tease the hair and secure with hairspray before using a flat iron to style the bottom half.

Braided Bangs

Jennifer Aniston is known for her signature laidback hair and natural-looking makeup style, but I absolutely loved when she mixed things up this casual hairstyle with a twist! Jen's loosely curled locks hide the ends of the thin French braid that winds its way down toward the nape of her neck.

Side Twists

Pretty Little Liars star, Lucy Hale, does a complete 180 from her edgy on-screen character’s style with this romantic twisted 'do. This easy hairstyle requires nothing but hairpins. Simply take a section of hair just above the ear, twist back and secure. Now if only we could get Lucy’s amazing eyebrows!

Retro Waves

This celebrity hairstyle is both quick and easy—two of my favorite words to hear when dealing with troublesome long hair! To get Diane Kruger’s stunning style, start by taking a section of hair from right above the ear. Keeping the section loose, wrap the ends of the hair into a twist and pin with hairpins in a cross shape to keep from slipping. Repeat this on the opposite side. Finish off with loose curls and some glossing spray for a silky look.

Multiple Braids

Before Kim Kardashian was half of “Kimye” she wore this girly multi-braided style to the 2011 Kids Choice Awards. To keep long hair out of your face pull back a section of hair at the middle of the hairline. Twist the section to one side and braid the ends. This subtle twist on a basic style is perfect for an easy wedding hairstyle.

Low Ponytail

Beyonce’s ever-changing locks are at the top of my “celebrity hairstyles to copy” list. This simple ponytail she wore to a past MTV Video Music Awards show is not to be confused with a messy gym version. This low maintenance style is chic and easy. My tip for glamorous ponytails: Make sure to wrap a section of hair around your hair tie to camouflage it.

Hair Sparkle

You don’t have to suffer through a complicated wedding updo in order to add some sparkly hair accessories to your look. Hayden’s subtle stick on sparkles add just a touch of flash to her simple look.

Big Waves

Glee star Naya Rivera turns up the heat with big, sexy waves. Pair this hairstyle with bronze makeup for an irresistible wedding look.

Soft Tousled Waves

We love Lauren Conrad's soft tousled waves. Part your hair in the middle and do two small braids on either side for a hairstyle that's bohemian chic.

Sleek 'Do

We adore Nina Dobrev's long, sleek 'do. The key to this simple hairstyle is a good anti-frizz product.  The straight hair is classically beautiful for a wedding.
