How to Pair Your Wedding Gown’s Neckline with Your Hairdo

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

When it comes to pulling together the perfect wedding look, it’s all about the details. Little things can determine whether or not your look comes together into something harmonious. One thing you might not have thought about yet—do you know how to pair your wedding gown’s neckline with your hairdo? If not, have no fear, we have some tips for you.


  • Strapless wedding dresses work with almost anything. Ideally, you want to create balance between the bare shoulders (and bare back) and leave your hair down. However, depending on how intricate the design of the bodice is, you might also want to pull your hair up – or leave it in a half-up half-down hairdo. Strapless wedding gowns are among the most versatile options in terms of the hairdos they can work with, so you’ve got lots of options here!
  • Off the shoulder wedding gowns look absolutely elegant and romantic. However, you have to pay attention to them because leaving your hair completely down might make you feel like too much is happening around your shoulders. You can either pull your hair up in romantic updos (e.g. a subtly braided updo with a few floating curls), or you can leave it swept to the side (a side braid, a side bun, or even a side pony tail, for example). However you decide to pull it back, leaving your shoulders and décolletage open and on display works best with this style of bodice.
  • Boat neck wedding dresses are really sophisticated and elegant, and the key here lies in keeping your hair away from the base of the neck, where the boat neckline starts. There are a million lovely ways to pull your hair up – and, depending on the actual design of the dress, you can land on something that’s either very romantic, like a messy bun with a few curls escaping, or very polished, like a clean chignon.
  • V-necks wedding gowns are all about delicacy and femininity, so the hairstyle should suit that vibe. Leaving your hair down or pulling it in a curled half-up half-down hairdo are both popular options. You can also go for an oversized side bun, or, if the dress allows for it, a slightly messy side braid, which will look really romantic and feminine with a more casual, rustic-chic wedding dress.
