Barely There: An illusion, or barely there neckline, demands attention. Try styling hair half up, leaving the rest around your shoulders. Try a braided crown, or hair pinned with a sparkling, crystal brooch.

Strapless: A romantic strapless neckline is most of the most versatile necklines to style. We love the look of tousled, loose curls grazing the shoulders and complementing a strapless sweetheart neckline.

Off-the-Shoulder: When styling an off the shoulder neckline, we recommend keeping hair off the shoulders, focusing attention on this stunning neckline. For long hair, try pinning hair into a faux-bob, or a loose chignon. For short hair, try a few curls, or pinning hair back.

Bateau: A wide, high neckline that follows the line of the collarbone, a bateau neckline is quickly becoming a favorite among brides. Keep all eyes on this stunning neckline by styling hair in a modern updo. We love the look of a glamorous updo, with sleek sides and volume on top.

Scoop: Nothing says romance like a subtle scoop neckline. Mirror the romance in your hairstyle with a loose updo, accented with a thick, braided crown.



Friday Favorite: Lace Wedding Dress with Keyhole Back

Few things get our hearts racing faster than a breathtaking wedding dress, and this one fits the bill in every way. This striking lace wedding dress with an open, keyhole back, Breanna, is the perfect dress for an upcoming spring or summer wedding. Constructed of intricate lace, Breanna's open keyhole back is simply stunning, offering an added dose of drama to an otherwise simple, lace wedding dress. Paired with a crystal headband, we envision Breanna gracing the aisle of a lovely garden wedding, styled with soft, dewy makeup and loose hair, in a chic chignon or cascading waves. What do you think of Breanna?
