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.
Down with natural texture
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
Think volume with lots of bounce and movement. This sexy hairstyle will offset your demure neckline and keep the look from looking too severe.
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.
