Match Your Hairstyle to Your Wedding Dress

You have the perfect dress, now you just need the perfect wedding day hairstyle. With a wide variety of dress styles today, finding the perfect hairstyle that equally compliments your dress but won’t steal the spotlight can be difficult. With these simple tips you will be well on your way to finding your perfect hairstyle!

High-Collar Wedding Dress

A topknot creates a clean, sophisticated hairstyle that plays up the ultra-formal feel of a high neckline. And a high bun elongates your neck, making it easier to pull off more dramatic detailed collars that would otherwise compete with your hair. A braid as a headband can also add embellishment without detracting from the gown, or you can keep it classic with a ballerina bun.



Bateau-Neckline Wedding Dress

A bateau neckline skims along the collarbone to show only the faintest hint of skin, which creates a classic silhouette that is very feminine. For an equally classic look choose a simple low bun. For modern look consider a high ponytail with some volume.

V-Neck Wedding Dress

Wedding dresses with a V-neck draws the eye vertically, which elongates your neck, and will you make you look long and lean. To complement this style, try wearing your hair down with loose curls and deep side part. Or if you’re going for a more casual look, consider soft beach waves.





One-Shoulder Wedding Dress

With an asymmetrical neckline there are two directions you can go. Side-swept curls or a braid will balance the neckline and cover your shoulder. While a side-swept updo will focus attention on the neckline and won’t get in the way of shoulder details.



Strapless Wedding Dress

A strapless dress pairs great with a number of hairstyles, but we love the idea of pairing a shoulder-baring updo with this silhouette. Another exquisite look is loose waves. It ads versatility in photographs, and it can work with or without a veil.
