Perfect Hairstyles to Match Different Necklines

Have you found the perfect dress to wear to prom? If you have, you may already be planning your look for the night and are already making important decisions on accessories and hairstyles. Will you wear your hair up in a classic bun or will you let your beautiful curls loose?

While it may seem like a tough question to ask, there’s actually a hack for deciding on what hairstyle to go for. And yes, you decide based on the neckline of your dress. By looking at each neckline type, you will be able to pick out a hairstyle that works best with each of them.

Here are five necklines and the ideal hairstyles to match:

1. Sweetheart Necklines

Dresses with sweetheart necklines are probably the most common prom dress styles. Many individuals find the simple and feminine style very appealing for formal occasions. Plus, they work well with a number of hairstyles. Depending on the event, you can choose a special updo hairstyle or hang those locks loose and they will still match a sweetheart neckline.

2. High Necklines

An up-do hairstyle is highly recommended for dresses with a high neckline. Depending on whether you are aiming for a casual look or a more elegant appeal, you can choose to wear your hair in a simple top-knot bun or go for the more elaborate French twist. Other updo types include the ponytail, beehive, and the chignon. Each of these types have their own variations as well, such as the high, mid, or low ponytail options.

3. V Necklines

The ideal hairstyle for dresses with a V-neck is a half-up, half-down look. Keep your hair away from your face in a half-bun or a braid while allowing the rest of your beautiful mane to loosely fall on your back. Braids and curls add a stylish vibe to V-necks, so you can opt for a twirled bun updo, a braided half-up half-down top knot, or a side swept look.

4. Off Shoulder

Off the shoulder dresses show off one’s collarbone, which means you should also go for a hairstyle that does the same. If you are aiming for a romantic appeal, go for sweet braids on the side or side-swept hair. If you want a sexier appeal, go for a soft updo. If you want to wear your hair loose, keep them at the back so they do not cover up the collarbone.

5. Halters

Halters are very flattering for the wearer with a long neck. The loop top that wraps around the neck gives it this sexy appeal, which can be greater emphasized with short hairstyles and buns. If you are wearing a halter dress, you would want to keep your hair up to show off the details of the halter top.

Those with short hair can have their crowning glory styled into a sleek bob, which works really well with this neckline style. Even if you don’t have short hair, you can create a fake bob by pinning your hair under using pretty clips to keep them in place.

Those with longer hair can opt for buns or go for big curls so that it doesn’t cover the halter. Milkmaid braid updo, vintage-inspired updo, or a twisted textured updo will also do well with halter necklines.
