Before you choose a hairstyle, here are some tips to ensure that your carefully coifed tresses will work in harmony with the neckline of your wedding dresses and match the overall style of the gown.
Choosing a strapless gown means you can explore a full range of hairstyles designed to complement the feel of the dress. A strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline often conjures up images of classic bridal beauty and romance, lending itself to delicate curls, loose low buns, side-swept locks, or even bouncy, full-bodied ponytails. In comparison, strapless gowns with straight across necklines are complemented by sleeker updos that suggest a more polished appearance.
V-Necks and Deep Sweethearts with Straps
V-necks and deep sweethearts neckline with embellished straps provide versatility in regards to hairstyle choice, allowing you to focus the decision on the overall style of the dress. For example, a V-neck with classic lace details will look just as stunning with cascading curls set in a romantic updo as it allows the accents to shine.
In comparison, a more modern or sleek mermaid wedding dresses with a deep sweetheart neckline will be flattered by a classic chignon, a high ponytail, or even a short, textured bob. Additionally, if there aren’t many embellishments, leaving hair down or in a half-updo can also work beautifully.
If your dress features a more boho vibe, then consider a fun braid crown or loose, natural waves depending on whether the material is unembellished on the bodice.
Off the Shoulder
An open off the shoulder ball gown inspires a sense of vintage romance with a hint of innocence. The design also draws attention to the collarbone and soft shoulders. When selecting a hairstyle, it is best to choose an option that will accomplish similar goals. For example, any hairstyle that falls right above the shoulders, such as a bob (or faux bob) will also highlight delicate collarbones. If the overall style of the gown leans towards the traditional or romantic side, then choose a hairdo that features curls or waves to continue the classically feminine look.
For those who prefer the control offered by an updo, consider a low, loose bun. That way you can maintain some volume in your hairstyle while still achieving a polished appearance. If you dream of having your hair down, consider a deep off-center part or a half-updo to achieve the best of both worlds.
