Wedge hairstyles have been popular ever since Dorothy Hamill wore this hairstyle after winning a Gold Medal in the Olympics. The wedge haircut has become a classic cut that is good for any age group. Celebrities have varied the wedge hairstyle over time and it has evolved today to be one of the most popular celebrity hairstyles. Even with the variations, the wedge is still considered a “wedge” style if the hair is tapered at the neck with clean lower layers. Some celebrities have varied the wedge to fit their own unique personality and given us new trendy and chic wedge hairstyles to love.

This is a fabulous celebrity wedge cut that is perfect for lazy days relaxing with friends or a star-studded evening at theater. According to InStyle, the trick to achieving this look is to have layers cut in the back with the front and sides no longer than chin-length. For the wedge look, layers should be shorter to longer at the nape of the neck.
Angled wedge cuts are trendy, popular and look great on anyone. Hair is angled with fullness at the crown, layered to be closer to the chin at the bottom. Hair is tapered and squared off at the bottom. Mariska Hargitay wore this angled wedge hairstyle at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards and looked stunning on the red carpet.

Wedge haircuts are not just for those celebrities with straight hair. Milla Jovovich has waves with her super short wedge haircut. This celebrity wedge hairstyle is perfect for her oval face and the waves are sensual and soft.
In order to maintain a wedge hairstyle, you must get regular trims because wedge styles do not look attractive if you go too long between haircuts. In addition, if you have wavy or curly hair try using a small amount of straightening balm to finger style the curls and waves into the style you desire.
