The best big-day hairstyles for a one shoulder wedding dress

Asymmetric wedding dresses are very much a big trend this season, and our Posy dress is a great choice if you want a fashion-forward wedding dress that still oozes luxury.

This dramatic and distinctive neckline deserves a wedding-day hairstyle that accentuates the neckline and showcases the contemporary feel of the dress.

The key here is to showcase that stunning neckline so avoid having lots of hair around the shoulder and instead look at those wedding day hairstyles that will show it off to perfection.

8 wedding day hairstyles for one shoulder wedding dresses

Low bun
A swept back low bun is a great way to show off a fancy neckline or pretty jewellery. It's all low maintenance. Once it's in place, spray with lots of hairspray and you'll be guaranteed that it will stay put all day. You can keep it nice and simple as our real bride Christine did, or add a sparkly comb or fresh flowers into the bun.

Tucked behind the ear
This is a super simple, but still very stylish, hairstyle to wear on your wedding day. It not only allows you to show off your neckline, but also while keeping your hair down. This type of hairstyle looks great with any natural curls. Either tuck a small piece behind one ear or keep it in place with a gemstone clip.


Half-up, half-down
If you don't want your hair totally up, but want it off your face, this style is for you. As most of your hair is tied up, it still allows you to show off the one shoulder wedding dress style, but still gives you some length.

Sleekly sophisticated
The contemporary feel of the asymmetric wedding dress means it goes well with a simple sleek hair do, like our real bride Serena had on her big day. A salon blow dry is crucial for this look. Finish off with a spritz shine spray to keep it looking glossy all day long.

Low pony tail
Our Posy dress has a spaghetti one shoulder strap, which means it really works well when the hair is taken away from the neck area. While a pony tail may seem a bit 'everyday' for your big day, it looks refreshingly modern, yet extremely polished - perfect for any urban brides.

Hollywood waves
You can never go wrong with cascading curls for full on wedding day glamour. They match the retro feel of an asymmetric wedding dress and if you tuck one side behind an ear, or accessorise with a pretty pearl hair clip, it will also allow you to show off your décolletage in a very pretty way.

Plaits all the way 
Pretty plaits worn around the head are a great way to add interest to your wedding day hair. They not only keep the hair out of your face for your big day but also allow you to showcase interesting necklines or statement necklaces. This lovely laidback style by Sally from Hair By Duboux is the perfect example of a wedding day hairstyle made for an asymmetric wedding dress.

Tousled bob
Wedding hair doesn't need to be long or elaborate to pack a punch. A tousled bob topped with a tiara or headband looks super contemporary when teamed with a one shoulder wedding dress and is perfect for non-girly brides.
