Perfect Pair: Winning Hair and Neckline Combinations
Leslie Loyola
Published on

For some of us, the best thing about going out is getting dolled up. Sadly, not everyone has hours on end to devote to combing the internet for beauty pegs and trying it out. For busy days, it helps to develop a good eye for what goes best together and what looks best on you. 

To help get you out the door a little quicker, we prepared a concise guide for universally flattering hairstyle and neckline pairings. Knowing these by heart might shave precious minutes off your prep time.  

Off-The-Shoulder

Down with natural texture

A post shared by Kaia (@kaiagerber) on


The off-the-shoulder or Bardot neckline is dramatic enough that you can wear your hair down and natural and still look pretty sophisticated. This style exposes the neck, shoulders, and collarbone; wearing your hair down also downplays the skin exposure.

Top-knot

Let your décolletage be the visual focal point or your look by piling your hair on top of your head in a haphazard top knot or a sleek donut bun. Show off a great profile in this quirky yet daring hairstyle choice.   

Deep V or Plunging


Up-do

Whether formal, casual, or somewhere in between, the V neckline elongates the neck and lends the wearer touch of elegance.  Match it with a clean and simple up-do that won’t steal your neckline’s thunder.

Glam curls

Long hair in loose, glossy curls will always look great framed against a simple but sexy V. Wearing your hair down also offers a bit more coverage if you’re feeling modest.    

Strapless


Braids

Already missing Mexico 🇲🇽. Anyone down for a travel / vacation hairstyles tutorial? 🤗

This look is popular with blushing brides but it works for parties and date nights too. Intricate braids will do well with a simple and unobtrusive tube neckline.

Cheerleader ponytail

#TheShallows premiere. Terrible at hiding my excitement.

If you’re looking to inject a playful and charming vibe to a sexy, strapless neckline, go for a swishy ponytail. The higher the better.

Scoop or Square


Long and luscious

Unleash your inner goddess by letting your hair down. A tip: work some product through your hair to keep it glossy and frizz-free.

Pin-straight bob

The razor-sharp edges of your blunt bob will look best with a wide neckline that will show off a lot of skin. 

Turtleneck


Classic blow-out
Think volume with lots of bounce and movement. This sexy hairstyle will offset your demure neckline and keep the look from looking too severe. 

Center part

This incredibly simple style carries a massive impact. The result is clean, sleek, and sophisticated. Finish off the look with a pair of statement earrings for added glamour.
