Michelle Keegan's wedding hair: get the look

Michelle Keegan's thick and flowing hair has long been the envy of many women, and on her wedding day the brunette beauty was nothing short of sensational. Michelle, whose wedding to DJ and radio host Mark Wright was covered exclusively by HELLO! magazine, opted to have two hairstyles on her big day.

As any meticulous bride would do, Michelle scoured through different looks before deciding what worked best with her exquisite wedding gown.

With the help of her hairdresser Lisa Laudat, the Ordinary Lies actress chose a half-up half-down style that completed her breathtaking image.


Michelle Keegan looked at her favourite hair icons for inspiration

"Michelle and I had discussed the wedding hair by pulling inspiration from our favourite hair icons," Lisa told HELLO! magazine in an exclusive chat.

"Up until the last minute it could have been up or down, but after seeing the dress I suggested soft luxe waves framing her face, with her hair gently pulled back on the top to create height and structure.

"I achieved this look by applying Aveda's Phomollient Styling Foam and then doing a gorgeous blow out to keep the hair looking glossy for the all day celebrations. I then sectioned off the hair, backcombed at the root and pinned everything in to place all ready for the veil which completed the look."

For the reception the new Mrs Wright left her hair down

For the reception at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk, Michelle removed her dreamy, delicate Italian veil from Peter Langner, so she could dance the night away and greet her 200 guests as the new Mrs Wright.

She also changed into a 1950s style dress – so that Mark, a former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, could easily perform "the lift" during their Dirty Dancing-inspired routine.

Michelle was keen to spend as much time with her family and friends as possible, so only slipped away for a bit to have her hair retouched.

"I unpinned the hair, spraying a little of the Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray before whizzing through each sections using my T3 wand tongs," revealed hairdresser Lisa.

"Michelle didn't want to spend too much time away from the party so I had to be super quick! I under-dressed the hair by pulling gently through with my fingers and then after a quick spritz of Elnett hairspray, off she ran back to the party."
