So you’ve found the perfect dress for homecoming, prom, your wedding, girls night or a hot date – regardless of why you’re getting done-up, you want to look put together from head to toe. You want your hair to match not only the cut of your dress but also the style. Of course you want to wear your hair in the best way that makes you feel confident, and you don’t have to concern yourself with beauty trends as long as you feel great, so if you’re looking for a little inspiration and also a guide to choosing the right hairstyle for your dress then here are a few tips.
Consider the Neckline
If you have a strapless or low cut dress then you want to flaunt it – wear your hair up so that you show off your features and your beautiful dress. Hair also looks great worn up with high necklines such as a high collar or boat neck.
Strapless dresses can go either way – this is up to how you feel about it, but it sure does look stunning with wavy locks that are left hanging down.
A square neckline, spaghetti strap necklaces, and v-neck cuts are great options for hair that’s left down. Regardless of your dress by choosing to wear your hair down is a romantic and soft look, which can give you more confidence, so choose a hairstyle that makes you feel great.
You Should Try to Match Your Dresses Style
Is your dress more Audrey Hepburn, 1960’s chic, or bohemian? You may want to match your hairstyle with the dress choice. For example, if you chose a vintage 1920’s flapper-girl inspired dress then opt for the traditional curls and headband that they once wore. If you choose a more modern day Angelina-Jolie long and elegant dress than pair it with long romantic curls. If you are wearing a modern gown then sleek and geometric hairstyles work perfect. Matching your decade or style through your hair and dress will bring the look together and make deciding on a hairstyle much simpler.
Test Run and give it a Try
Perhaps the best way to ensure you’ve chosen the best hairstyle with your dress is to give it a try. You don’t have to schedule an appointment with a hairstylist, but simply plying around with braids, updo’s, curls, etc. and trying them with your dress is a great way to decide what looks best – and also the perfect excuse for some extra girl time.
