Whether it’s a saree with a halter neck blouse, a lehenga with a strapless choli or an evening gown with a V-shaped neck, there are hairstyles to go with each one of them.

Here are a few hairstyle suggestions basis the type of neckline you plan to wear on the reception party:

1. With a single shoulder gown, blouse or choli, it is advised to go with side-swept curls that cover the bare shoulder. Besides, it looks stylish. You can try it out on your cocktail night as well.

2. For a boat line neck, go with a high hairdo (updo). The idea is to not have hair fall on the neck or shoulders. Don’t forget to accessorize your hair with a lovely floral arrangement, barrette or a few shiny bobby pins.

3. If you plan to wear a very heavy neckline, full of embellishments, then its best to flaunt your hair simple. Straight hair, side or centrally parted or perhaps some flowing waves at the end.

4. With a strapless blouse or choli, go for loose bangs or bouncy locks. If you want to flaunt some skin, opt for a high ponytail or a messy braid.

5. If your neck is V-shaped and has crystals, embroidery or lace work on it, then show-off your neck with an updo, a braided bun perhaps. Such hairstyles accentuate the neck. You must wear a gorgeous neck-piece though if the neckline has soft needlework on it.

6. With a band-neck, a high ponytail, headband braid or a stylish updo with some sparkling bobby pins or any other shiny hair accessory looks super elegant.

7. With noodle straps or cut sleeves and a low neckline, its best to go with blow-dried open hair, straight tresses or flowing waves.

Wear a pretty makeup, heavy eyes, dazzling lipcolor and most importantly, a beautiful smile on your special day! Above all, have lots of fun :). Congratulations for a new beginning!
