When it comes to wedding day hair looks there are a handful of no-fail styles to consider. One of the most popular? Effortlessly flowy waves. This hairstyle is beloved by real brides and celebrities alike—take it from country superstar Kelsea Ballerini, who hit the 2023 CMA Awards red carpet in the ultimate bridal glam. She donned a deep side part and loose waves softly tucked behind her ears. Our immediate thought was, “OMG, this is the perfect bridal hairstyle!”
Also deserving of an honorable mention is her makeup. Her complexion exuded a soft glow with a smokey eye featuring blush pink shadow that complimented the color of her dress. Defined brows and a striking red lip à la Taylor Swift polished off the look.
She walked the carpet alongside boyfriend Chase Stokes in a one-shoulder Christian Siriano gown with side ruching and a thigh-high slit. Her statement chandelier earrings and minimalist middle and pointer finger rings were the perfect pairing. The duo was stunning side by side as Chase rocked a black-on-black outfit and his own flowy hairstyle.
The couple first sparked dating rumors in January 2023 while attending a football game together and officially went public with their relationship at the CMT Awards in April 2023. Since then, they’ve attended numerous outings and appearances together including the MTV VMAs and even dressing as Barbie and Ken for Halloween the same year. Before dating Stokes, Ballerini was previously married to country star Morgan Evans from 2017 to 2022.
