  1. Don’t forget hair and makeup:

    Opt for a balanced and harmonious look that accentuates the colours, silhouette, and/or neckline of your gown. Hairstyles like loose curls, braided updos, or sleek ponytails to frame your face and highlight your features often do the trick when it comes to flair and class. For makeup, choose a natural or glamorous look that can balance your look, depending on your overall ensemble.
