  • Scoop Neck

    Pair a scoop neckline with ultra-chic waves for a fresh take on old-Hollywood glamour. According to Eva Scrivo, founder of Eva Scrivo Salons, “An off-center upsweep with most of the hair on one side accentuates the softness of a scoop neck beautifully.”

    Play up an intricate one-shoulder neckline with straight-as- can-be locks falling neatly behind your shoulders. Eva Scrivo says, “Pin-straight hair with a center part will add balance to an asymmetrical dress and let the shoulder detail take center stage.”

    “With a bateau neckline, it’s best to wear the hair up to showcase the dress and create clean lines at the shoulders,” says Kelsey Smart, stylist at Fox & Jane Salon. “Opt for a loosely textured updo with volume at the crown to soften the look.”

    The sweetheart neckline epitomizes classic bridal style, so a polished, romantic ’do is always a natural fit. Stylist Triana Francois at Haven Spa recommends soft, glamorous curls to balance out bare shoulders and add an extra dose of allure to your look.

  • Off The Shoulder

    Showcase your shoulders with an oh-so-elegant, softly swept- up style. “I love an un-fussy updo with a lacy dress,” Kelsey Smart says. “It draws attention to the eye-catching, off-the-shoulder neckline and gives the gown a fresh, youthful vibe.”

    Edward Tricomi, master stylist and co-founder of Warren- Tricomi Salons, suggests pairing loose, flowing waves with a plunging neckline. “Waves will balance out the revealing neckline,” Tricomi says. “Plus, the texture will add dimension to the look.”

  • High Neck

    Avoid anything sleek or severe if your dress has a high neckline and long sleeves. According to Kelsey Smart, “Flowers and loose tendrils allow a high-neck dress to look whimsical rather than overly buttoned-up. They’re like a breath of fresh air.”
