With an asymmetrical neckline, or single-shoulder gown, there are a couple of attractive hairstyle options. Side-swept curls or a braid or pony will cover your bare shoulder and balance the neckline, whereas an updo will focus attention on the stylish cut of the dress. A mussed beehive adds volume and glamour while contrasting with the gown’s architectural lines. Sweep your bangs off to one side to mirror the dress’s shape.
The boat, or “bateau,” neckline skims along the collarbone to show only the faintest hint of skin. To suit this design, have your hair up and off the face in either a cropped cut with finger waves or a low updo in a soft, feminine style. If you have long tresses, secure the bulk of hair at the nape of your neck. A row of decorative bobby pins, a brooch or a barrette will add a little flash when pinned at the side or to the back of the hair.
An ivory dress with ruched straps pushed off the shoulders is pure class. A smooth and simple updo radiates elegance and draws attention to one body part that never gets flabby: the shoulders. We like a deep side part and strands so shiny you can see your reflection. A tight knot or chignon is a mature option for a sophisticated style.
Strapless, the choice of many brides, looks exquisite with loose, flowing locks. This type of hairstyle adds versatility in photographs, as hair can be pushed off shoulders or pulled over to offer more coverage. A perfect side part and soft waves will add a princess quality to your look without going over the top. A slightly wet appearance at the roots adds a modern twist.
The square neck is a no-fuss cut that can reveal almost as much skin as a strapless and shows off a beautiful collarbone and décolleté. This dress suits a modern bouffant hairstyle with a thin headband and volume at the crown. The look is perfect for the bride that wants to dial up the glam.
An updo paired with a V-shaped neckline will elongate your neck, making you appear tall and lean. The lace on this gown adds a romantic flair, so choose a hairstyle to match. The mid-part and braided circlet offer a regal element to the look, as well as the perfect place to clip in your veil—no tiara necessary.
A high neckline is an atypical choice that will make a refined statement. Hair should be pinned up to show off the gown in all its glory and loose, carefree waves to contrast with the ladylike collar. This style should look textured, as though you just stepped from the ocean and twisted your strands up yourself. Allow short tendrils to escape around your ears.
A low scoop neck reveals cleavage, especially when enhanced with a hidden corset. A simple style and thin straps goes best with long, straight tresses and a sleek blunt bang. To nail the look, hair must be ultra shiny. No flyways; not a hair out of place. Admittedly, the pairing is a little more Hollywood than wedding, but that’s a good thing!
