beauty Ready for Your Close-Up LOOKING TO THE RED CARPET FOR HAIR INSPIRATION GUARANTEES YOU'LL LOOK LIKE A STAR. A wedding-day updo must be many things at once: Timeless. Memorable. Flattering. Glamorous. It must also photograph well and stay in place for hours without a hint of stiff, oversprayed texture. So it's no wonder brides often turn to the red carpet, where leading ladies and their stylists emulate these qualities each season, for instant inspiration. "Clients often come in with celebrity photos for updo ideas," says Amanda Moran, hair stylist at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. "I always recommend that we look together for online photos of celebrities whose hair they most like. That way, I can get a feel for what their eye is drawn to, and it gives me a platform to explain any benefits or limitations of their own unique canvas." VINTAGE GLAMOUR Classic beauty Charlize Theron demonstrates the power of working with one's natural texture - in her case, soft blond waves, pinned to the side and accented with a sparkling headband. The result? Breathtaking, iconic glamour, perfect for creating timeless wedding photos. "The South loves tradition," says Kristen Swidrak, wedding planning expert at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, in Atlanta. "However, the style is to have some loose pieces, rather than being sleek and slick." "For a 1920s look with a modern twist, create a bun on the side," suggests Gina Ludwig, owner of the bridal accessories collection Hair Comes the Bride. "A great way to incorporate vintage looks while keeping it modern is to add a hair accessory, like a headband or tiara." 36 W E D D I N G S B Y T H E R I T Z - C A R LT O N 2 1 4 3 1.
