So, you found the dress of your dreams. However, the style journey doesn’t stop there!

Your wedding dress is obviously the statement piece of your wedding look, but let’s not forget the elements that help tie it all together to enhance your overall bridal look.

We’re talking about your wedding day hairstyle! When creating your overall ceremony look, the hairstyle you choose plays a vital role in accentuating your features and the details of your gown. Here are a few tips for selecting a hairdo that pairs perfectly with your dress neckline!

The Strapless Neckline

Your gorgeous strapless dress gives you plenty of options when it comes to hairstyles in accordance with the neckline. 

If you wear….

Hair down

If you’re a long-locked gal with a strapless dress, consider wearing your hair down. This look may be simple, but it comes out simply stunning. Hair down allows cover for neck and shoulders, bringing attention to the neckline itself. 

Half-up, half-down

Another stylish option for strapless is the half-up, half-down. This is a slight tweak from a free-flowing mane but it’s more convenient if you want a hair out of your face or if you want to wear your hair down, but also want to make a statement with a bun or braids.  

The V-Neck Neckline

There are plenty of hairstyles for the V-Neck or deep-cut necklines. This neckline obviously highlights the bust but also compliments your collarbone and the contours of the neck. 

If you wear…

Side Sweep

This type of neckline is meant to show off your curves, so it’s probably best not to add coverage by wearing your hair down! If you are looking to wear your hair down, try  the side sweep look. This style pulls the hair out of your face and gracefully lands on your shoulder. The side sweep can be pulled into a pony or even a braid.

Side Bun

If you are looking to keep your hair off the neckline entirely, a chic side bun may be the better option. Simple, sweet, and keeps attention on the neck and shoulders.

The Dramatic Back

It’s like the V-Neckline, but opposite; the dramatic back neckline usually has a covered front with a gaping back. For this type of neckline, you can’t go wrong with an updo!


When it comes to updos, the options are limitless. Base your updo off the vibe of your dress, for example, if you are feeling boho style, a fishtail braid updo may be calling your name!


For the dramatic back, a slicked back pony or bun adds an element of contemporary chicness.
