Choosing a wedding hairstyle based on your neckline
20 September 2018
Still struggling to pin down that perfect wedding hairstyle for your big day? Look no further for inspiration than your wedding dress neckline! Working hand in hand to draw attention to your face, a good hairstyle and neckline combo will work together to give you the most flattering silhouette. Here are some of the best ways to match ‘do and dress for a picture-perfect wedding day.
This dramatic style has a collar that rises high to cover the neck. To show off this unusual feature to the fullest, keep hair away from your neck and rather sweep it up into an elegant updo or bun. This will also prevent the unflattering ‘floating head’ look, where the neck is covered by a halter and hair.
This wedding dress dips down between the bust creating a V shape around the neck. The best style is long, loose, and wavy hair to complement the long dip of the dress and balance the sharp lines created by the neckline. Ladies, this is the perfect time to invest in a lengthy weave to pull this look off!
Whether it’s straight across or a sweetheart neckline, this one’s all about the shoulders! This wedding dress style is identified by having no straps or sleeves, and a bare neckline. A low, messy bun with loose strands hanging over the face looks stunning but remember to keep hair off the shoulders to emphasise the style of the dress.
This is a one-sided dress with a strap over one shoulder or arm while the other shoulder is bare. Match the one shoulder style with hair swept to the same side as the strap. You can choose a one-sided low bun for an elegant updo option, or a sleek ponytail coming forward onto the shoulder if you’d rather wear your hair loose.
This dress cuts straight across and over the collarbone while the straps are placed wide or off the shoulder. A texturised bun would be the perfect addition to this elegant neckline, adding new dimension to the straightness and width of the dress.
Before your big day, consult with your trusted hairstylist for a trial run. That way you can make sure it not only looks great with your dress, but that it has the staying-power to last the whole day too!
