Whether it consists of lace, bead embellishments or mesh, dresses with a high neckline are designed to be flaunted so the last thing you want to do is to hide it away behind your equally stylish locks. With this neckline make sure you choose a hairstyle that leaves your neck and shoulders completely bare. A top knot is a good option and make sure all of your hair is up as loose locks can distract from the dress.

One Shoulder Neckline

Depending on what kind of look you want, there are two options you could go for with a one-shoulder dress. If you sweep your hair to the side of the exposed shoulder, it will balance out the dress whilst still showing the elegance of the neckline. Alternatively, a low up-do such as a messy knot with loose bangs will show off the neckline in all its glory and makes for a bolder look.

Spaghetti Straps
