The clock is ticking – time for you to start finalising your look for your Matric dance. And that includes your hair! You know that whatever style you choose will most likely end up on Instagram, so you’ll need to make sure it’s as flattering as possible. No stress needed – just take a look at our handy guide to matching hairstyles with dress styles, and get ready for real-life likes and admiration!

A loose updo with a lace dress

A romantic hairstyle can turn a lace dress into an entire dreamy look. Try a loose, wavy updo with tons of shine like Selena Gomez.

A fishtail braid with a halterneck dress

This is not the time to be afraid of extensions! If your hair isn’t long enough for a fishtail braid, simple pair your halter dress with a healthy dose of faux, fabulous ponytail to create Blake Lively’s look.

A faux lob with a low-cut dress

To balance out the shoulders on a V-neck dress, style your hair into a fake long bob (otherwise known as a lob) with rippling waves in a side part. Complete your glam look with a deep burgundy lip just like Emma Stone.


Bombshell waves with a backless dress

With a ‘business in the front, party in the back’ dress, it’s best to keep your hair simple, yet sultry. Try Julianne Hough’s look – a backless dress with voluminous waves that make a statement without going overboard.

A ballerina bun with a one-shouldered gown

Keep the spotlight on your sassy bare shoulder by styling your hair in an updo – like Romee Strijd’s oversized ballerina bun.

Wearing a turtleneck gown? Make your neck the centre of attention by smoothing your hair into a sleek ponytail – a look that Nina Dobrev knows well.
