Now that you’ve picked your wedding dress, it’s time to decide how you are going to style your hair. Where do you even begin?

When the two are planned together, you for sure will be the best version of yourself and ready to enjoy one of the best days of your life.
Whether your dress is strapless, off the shoulder, boat (bateau), v-neck, high neck or has the most dramatic back design, we have compiled some of today’s trendiest styles to compliment your wedding gown. It’s important to note that some necklines will give you more freedom to choose your hairstyle while others will not. Continue reading to discover the hairstyles that work best with your perfect choice of a wedding dress.
The neckline that gives you the most freedom to choose your hairstyle is the strapless dress. With this style of dress, you truly can do no wrong with whatever hairstyle you feel your best in. You can wear it down, half-up, romantically braided, or in an updo. We recommend that you try a few different styles at your trial and go with what truly makes you feel beautiful.
2. Off the Shoulder
Off the shoulder gives us so much vintage beauty. Taking this neckline, combined with the perfect style, you can’t go wrong with this romantic look. Some of our favorites are a loose side-swept style, a textured updo or something as beautiful as a low soft bun.
3. Boat (Bateau)
If your dress has a boat neck (bateau) neckline, choosing to wear an updo is the way to best complement this neckline. Whether it’s an undone messy bun, a braided updo or a high textured bun, creating this look will showcase this horizontal neckline—meant to show off your neck, collarbone, and shoulder points.
Another dress neckline we love is a V-Neck dress, for this gorgeous style, a great choice is to wear your hair loosely pulled back to highlight the beautiful styling of the dress. It doesn’t necessarily need to be all up, but styling it to showcase the v-neck detail is best. This can be done with an elegant half up/half down style, a low bun, or even a side braid.
5. High Neckline
The high neckline is truly the most romantic. We think the best hairstyles to compliment this beautiful neckline would be a side-part updo, a trending wrapped ponytail, or a classic center part bun with an adorne headband that is definitely a modern look.
6. Dramatic Back
Now, who doesn’t love a wedding dress with a dramatic back design? This style of dress can bring a lot of drama in the back, beautifully designed, and definitely shouldn’t be covered up. If you are wanting to wear your hair down, try going for a side-swept look with a romantic braid that hangs in the front, or possibly a chic bun for a classic look. A true favorite right now is a romantic ponytail that lays loosely down your back for a perfect modern bride look.
