Match Your Tresses to your Dress
A wedding day hairstyle should work well with the style of your dress, and in particular, the neckline. Here are 5 Red Carpet Inspired Hairstyles To Flatter The Seasons Trendiest Necklines from brides.com.
- Illusion (a sheer fabric panel extending from the bust to the collar): A half-updo is perfect because it can showcase any embellishment, while still having a romantic feel.
- Deep V: If the gown is simple go for a deep side part and wear your hair down with old Hollywood waves. If the gown has more of a bohemian feel, go with a slightly off-center part and a polished version of beach waves.
- Bejewled: This neckline is a signature piece so don’t distract from it. Go with an updo off your face. Try a French twist or another simple style.
- Boatneck: The boatneck is very feminine, but runs the risk of looking too serious. Try a sculpted ponytail with volume at the crown.
- High Collar: You can wear a high bun at the crown for a regal look or at the nape of the neck in a lower chignon for something softer and more romantic.
