19 Wedding Guest Hairstyles for Any Vibe or Venue

Published

on

You’ve RSVP’d yes, found the perfect outfit, and picked out a gift from the registry. Now all that’s left is deciding on the best wedding guest hair look. Whether you’re attending a tropical destination wedding or something more local and low-key, weddings are the perfect opportunity to finally debut that hair tutorial you’ve saved while scrolling through your feed. If you’re bored with showing up in the same basic updo every time, try inviting some braids, curls, and embellishments to the party.

For the ultimate inspiration, we asked three celebrity hairstylists to share their favorite wedding guest dos. Their first tip: Start with what you’re wearing and work from there. “I always allow the neckline of my outfit to guide my hairstyle,” says Lacy Redway, Unilever stylist and celebrity hair artist. “If I have a high neckline, I put my hair up. For something strapless or anything with exposed shoulders or a plunging neckline, I like it free-flowing.”

Thanks to the experts-approved list of ideas below, you’ve got plenty of options for every length and texture. Plus, these styles will last you through the reception and into the night for hours of celebratory dancing afterwards. Below, the 19 best wedding guest hair ideas for any vibe or venue.

How Sandy From ‘Grease’ Became a Y2K Feminist Icon

Published

on

When Grease was re-released in celebration of its 20th anniversary in 1998, Olivia Newton-John’s irresistible charm as Sandy Olsson found fresh and eager fans in millennials who, at the time, were just coming of age. This was already the second reissue of the iconic film, which was also the highest grossing live-action musical of all time until 2012, when its crown was usurped by Les Misérables. Upon its third stint in theatres, Grease was, as expected, a hit, coming in at number two at the box office only behind Titanic.

Grease fever continued well into 2003, when the film debuted its Deluxe 25th Anniversary Edition Soundtrack, reigniting Sandy enthusiasts’ hopeless devotion to the lovelorn teen. This soundtrack has gone on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time–as of 2020, it had sold approximately 28 million copies worldwide–a majority of which were probably me.

That five-year period of Y2K-era Grease fever began when I was seven, and ended when I was 12. For many of us millennials, Sandy embodied what a “grown up” woman was supposed to be: confident.

This message was in stark contrast to most popular forms of media in the early aughts, a majority of which vilified “promiscuous” and “evil” women, and instead lauded “innocence” (see: Cruel Intentions, American Pie, the entirety of Britney Spears’ career). But Sandy and her metamorphosis from naive good girl to leather-clad femme fatale showed us that femininity was complicated, multifaceted, and sometimes, even messy. For doe-eyed viewers of the time, such as myself, Sandy deconstructed the early-aughts media myth that girls were either “good” or “bad,” and redefined what it meant to be the “type” of woman who deserves a happily-ever-after. All of which made Olivia Newton-John’s recent death that much harder for her millennial fans.

Grease was my favorite movie, entirely because of Olivia Newton John’s portrayal of Sandy: a prim, quiet, meek—but lovely—girl who transforms by the film’s end into a sexually actualized, unapologetically horny woman capable of using her body to get what she wants,” Allie Rowbottom, a 36-year-old novelist tells Glamour. Newton-John’s portrayal of Sandy, she adds, changed the way she understood her own burgeoning sexuality, and how she was allowed to perform it.

Son of the Year! Drake Gets Mom Sandra’s Initials Tatted on His Face

Son of the year! Drake‘s newest tattoo is a sweet tribute to his mom Sandra Graham.

The rapper, 35, unveiled the design via Instagram on Thursday, August 11, sharing a carousel of images captioned, “Sandra Gale.”

The first photo of the slideshow is a zoomed-in image of Drake’s cheek with the initials “SG” inked just below the musician’s eye. (Also included in the montage of pics was a funny selfie of Drake’s dad Dennis Graham, posing in a paisley-adorned face mask and a matching button-up.)

The ink was done by Los Angeles-based tattooist, Nal. The artist posted a video of himself working on Drake’s face via Instagram. “The boi,” he captioned the post, tagging the Canada native. In the clip, the “Champagne Poetry” rapper is seen lounging with his eyes closed as Nal created the design.

This wouldn’t be Drake’s first dedication to Sandra, 62. In addition to his 2018 hit “Sandra’s Rose,” the Degrassi alum has a portrait of his mother on his back. The hitmaker also has ink that honors his son Adonis, his late uncle and grandma as well as two portraits of singer Sade on his torso. Elsewhere, Drake has a tribute to late singer Aaliyah and ink of Lil Wayne — who he credits for helping establish his rap career — on his arm.

Drake’s new addition comes after he hilariously trolled his dad over a tattoo the Tennessee native, 67, got of his son’s face back in 2017.

“@TheRealDennisG I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this we family,” Drake captioned the post shared on Monday, August 8. The ink, which was placed on Dennis’ shoulder, depicts a serious-looking Drake with a low haircut.

In the comments section, Dennis revealed he’s tried to get the tattoo fixed. “Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out, they’re hurting me,” he wrote. The Tennessee native added: “I love you and miss you.”

Drake’s hilarious confession also prompted a response from 2 Chainz and comedian Druski. “NA MAN,” Druski wrote. The “No Lie” rapper, 44, simply commented several laughing emojis.

‘Glamour’ Intern Mia Uzzell Is Obsessed With This Curl Gel for Finger Coils

Published

on

I hate to admit it, but I never really saw my natural hair during wash days growing up. By three-years-old, I had a relaxer and was committed to Sunday hot comb rituals, where my grandma warmed the sizzling tool on the stovetop to press out my roots. In middle school, extensions – haphazardly glued to my scalp—become my staple look to blend in with my predominantly white competitive cheer team. When I got to high school, lace front wigs were plastered across the front of my hairline twice a month, so I could always have the latest hairstyles.

Growing up in the South in a family of cosmetologists, weaves felt like a rite of passage. There was a pervasive internalized belief that Black natural hair was unmanageable, had no versatility, and couldn’t exist without being incessantly straightened. With every after-hours hair appointment in my family’s living room and 5 A.M. maintenance routine ahead of school, I wrestled with the concept that my natural hair was unworthy. 

When I got to college three years ago, I experienced the reckoning many Black women face with their natural hair: The infamous big chop. In my boyfriend’s college apartment, we took a pair of clippers and buzzed my hair down to a close-cropped cut. My neglected strands and years of exhausting insecurities fell in piles across the floor. 

Since then, my natural hair journey has come with its share of mental roadblocks. I relented from intimidating consumerism, which suggests that natural hair requires shelves of products. I realized how I’ve used protective styles to conceal rather than to protect, and had to shake my belief that my short 4C hair is the “ugly stage” of achieving a sky-scraping ‘fro. Wash days at the kitchen sink, often accompanied by my boyfriend’s reassuring assistance, have become a revolutionary act of self-love and a reminder that I can vault every challenge in this new phase of my life.

Below, the tried-and-true products that have helped me along the winding journey of loving my hair in its natural state.

Pre-Shampoo

I have low porosity hair, and learned that saturation and absorption of moisture is difficult along my hair shafts, which was paramount to understanding my wash day routine. The cleansing properties of most shampoos were often too harsh and left my hair feeling dry, even post-deep conditioning. Atop my stove, I melt an eyeballed mixture of shea butter and aloe vera gel fresh from my household plant. I apply the warm mixture to my hair and detangle it from tip to root with a Pattern Beauty’s wide-tooth comb. Overnight, the concoction lathers my strands to revitalize my natural oils and creates the perfect barrier to maintain luster and sheen for the next day’s wash.

Shampooing

I quickly discovered during shampoo sessions that I am, indeed, what my mother would call “tender-headed.” Years of unaddressed split ends mean my coils have been weakened and are susceptible to tangling into knots. This is where positive affirmations come in, since my knots trigger old emotions that make me feel that my hair is unnecessarily demanding. I’m often reminded of the common Southern saying “You wash clothes, you shampoo hair.” In essence, it means that hair is complex and requires its own method of care.
