How To Wear Hair With A One Shoulder Gown?

Many brides and bridesmaids will choose a one shoulder gown for their wedding day. Often times the dress will be very intricate around the shoulder and bodice. Beautiful beading or delicate lace usually covers these areas. I always find this style so beautiful.

When choosing a hairstyle for this dress, an updo, side swept braid or ponytail is perfect!

Updo: You will want to find something soft, sweet, romantic… and not too intricate! You definitely don’t want to take away from the beauty of the dress. I think the perfect style is a Messy-With-A-Purpose side bun! Be sure to have the bun on the same side as your bare shoulder.

Side Swept Braid Or Ponytail: This hairstyle is perfect for those who wanted a down look. It gives the impression of still having long hair. Plus you won’t have to worry about it getting caught on the beading or lace.

For the bride, I would add some delicate crystal hair jewelry or simple baby’s breath.

For a bridesmaid, its best to keep the style simple.. just a soft loose look. Remember you don’t want to take away from the bride!
