The 8 Best Hairstyles for a One-Shoulder Dress

Face Framing Ponytail

The asymmetrical neckline of the gown is highlighted by hair pulled back from the shoulders, but if you don't usually prefer your hair pulled back, you may still wear a few strands up front with a face-framing ponytail.

Curtain Bangs

Curtain, in two words. Claps. This hairstyle is popular regardless of the silhouette, and it works well with one-shoulder dresses. We adore this style, which pairs the fullness of the bangs with casually disheveled curls on the body.

Classic-Meets-Modern Updo

Though we think it would look amazing on bridesmaids, Caribbean music diva Rutshelle Guillaume nailed this outfit for her birthday.

Sleek Blowout

This style blends the ultra-trendy center-parted trends with a wedding blowout. The secret? To keep the front particularly taut, slick the front pieces with a pomade or wax stick (like Bed Head's Tigi Hair Stick)

Old Hollywood Waves

You can never be too overdressed, as evidenced by this formal haircut for one-shoulder dresses: Despite being entirely glamorous, the style was picked for a little outdoor wedding.

Center-Parted Bun

A modern center section and a sleek bun? Don't say anything more. This look has a black-tie flair to it and works well with practically any silhouette or neckline, including one-shoulder gowns.

A Classic Veil

The reception is the ideal setting for a stylish second look that combines whimsical and timeless elements. Change your dress for a one-shoulder mini, such as this Gia by Sarah Seven, and wear your hair down.

Braided Bun

There are a ton of stylish ways to wear braids with one-shoulder dresses on Black hair; this exquisite version is our fave. Here, cornrow braids are braided into a bun to highlight the dress's feathery neckline accents more prominently.
