The perfect bridal gown deserves the perfect accessories, and that includes your hairstyle. With more necklines than ever available these days, it is easy for brides to get confused about which hairdos work best with which wedding gowns. This is an easy guide to help you match your hairstyle to your wedding gown for an unbeatable look.
One shoulder wedding dresses have become very popular in the last few seasons, and this very unique neckline calls for a carefully crafted wedding hairstyle. After all, if you wear your hair down over your shoulders, you will end up obscuring the one shoulder detail that makes the gown special in the first place. Hair should definitely be pulled off your neck when wearing a one shoulder bridal gown.
A beautiful way to complement the asymmetrical neckline is with a soft chignon which is pulled off center to the opposite side of the single shoulder strap. It creates a pleasing visual balance to the gown and also ensures that your hairstyle will not hide the cut of the dress. Keep your bridal hair jewelry simple and modern with this style; a beautiful crystal brooch tucked into the chignon will be perfect.
Strapless gowns remain popular, and the openness of the neckline creates its own needs when it comes to a wedding hairdo. Soft waves cascading down over your shoulders will help to break up all that empty space and add a bit more coverage, especially for the wedding ceremony. For a more formal wedding, an updo piled high on the top of the head can also work well with strapless. Just be sure to wear a dramatic necklace to fill in the empty area between your bodice and chin, otherwise you will look naked in any close up pictures! A veil will also help to soften the look, and is always lovely for a formal wedding ceremony. Select bridal hair jewelry which complements the details on your strapless gown, as well as your necklace and earrings.
