Which hairstyle goes with which dress?

Now is the time to start thinking about your hairstyle for prom. Besides finding the dress and the date (whether it be your boyfriend or your best friend), your hairstyle is one of the most important elements to think about. Think about the amount of pictures that will be taken – Instagram and good old fashioned digital cameras – the style you display on prom night will be an image you will want to keep forever, so it’s important to choose the best hairstyle possible.

This is some advice on how to match the style of your prom dress to your hairstyle.

You can avoid the mistake of wearing a one shoulder dress with side swept waves or a ball gown with pin straight hair with our dresses and hairstyle matching tips. Of course, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and beautiful on prom night.


Lace Dress

Keep your hairstyle romantic a loose, wavy up do with tons of shine and the overall look is ideal.

Halter Neck Dress

A fishtail braid looks great with a halter neck dress if your hair isn’t long enough consider hair extensions or a fake ponytail.

Deep V Neck Dress

A wavy bob (or fake bob if you have long hair) looks great and balances out the fabric on your shoulders.

Mermaid Dress

A side swept hairstyle looks fabulous with a mermaid dress balancing the weight at the bottom of the dress.

Thin Strappy Dress

A feminine chiffon strappy dress looks perfect with a low ladylike chignon, this hairstyle suits virtually every face shape too!

Backless Dress

It is good to keep hair simple with a backless dress. A wavy messy style with voluminous waves will look great.

One Shoulder Dress

A giant ballerina bun is the way to go with this dress keeping the hair off your shoulder and the spotlight on the dress.

Turtleneck Dress

Pull your hair into a sleek ponytail to make your neck the centre of attention.

Strapless Dress

With a strapless dress, earrings or a statement necklace and the ideal accessories, balance out your look with a low, voluminous bun.

Dress with a sweetheart neckline

Whether your sweetheart neckline is on a ball gown or a sleek floor length dress, a pumped up ponytail makes the look rock chic and elegant all at the same time.
