If you hate Ryan Seacrest's red carpet banter or simply think awards shows are a snoozefest, we've got news for you: gowns and diamonds aren't the only reason to watch. Red carpets -- especially at the beginning of the year -- are chockfull of gorgeous, wedding-worthy hairstyles.
We're not talking about your average top knot or side braid either. These events are Hollywood's biggest nights of the year so you know celebrities (or more accurately their hairstylists) are going all out.
Just take a look at a few of the seriously chic hairstyles we've already spotted so far. Follow our tips to DIY these looks and then tell us you don't think these three styles wouldn't be perfect under a veil?
No. 1: Sofia Vergara's tousled waves
Prep hair by using hands to scrunch in a mousse like Redken Touch Control 05 Volumizing Texture Whip, $16.99, onto damp hair. Once hair is dry, wrap small sections around a 1-inch curling iron, alternating direction for a more textured effect.
No. 2: Jaimie Alexander's voluminous updo
Part hair and pull back into a low ponytail just below the crown, tucking ends underneath to get a bun-like effect. Mist a strong hold hairspray, such as Not Your Mother's She's A Tease Volumizing Hairspray, $5.99, while you tease and lift hair near part for extra oomph in the front.
No. 3: Jennifer Lawrence's messy chignon
Apply a curl-enhancing gel such as Dove Style+Care Nourishing Curls Whiped Cream Mousse, $4.89, to damp hair to enhance or create a wavy texture. Then loosely braid 4-inch sections of hair along hairline. Pull all hair back into a low chignon and secure with bobby pins.
