IMO, a half down hairdo would look great with this dress, but you might want to try a simple half-down ‘do and a simple up ‘do when you go for a fitting.  I thought I wanted to wear my hair down with my dress, but found that it made me look shorter than I did with an up ‘do (and at 4’11", the appearance of height was important to me).

I think something like THIS or THIS would look so stunning with that dress.  But it also depends, what kind of feel are you having for your wedding?  Also, how well does your hair take to curl?  If it doesn’t take well you might have a problem with it being down.  If it does take well something like THIS could be really pretty. 

You could also look at some of the Bees who may have hair that is similar to yours e.g. Mrs. Toucan’s Trial and her wedding day.  Maybe you’ll get some ideas there.

I love the look of hair half up/ half down.  Even just pulling the front part back a little really opens the face.  Some super loose curls would be beautiful!

If you are going to do it down, I agree with at least pulling a little hair back to help open your face.  Also, if you wear a veil (at least depending on what kind of veil) having some hair pulled back will give it something to hold onto.

Ohhhh I love your dress! Mine is very similar on the neckline.

I am doing mine down with a bit of a poof on top. I basically wanted it down but out of my face. 

I had my hair and make up trial a week or two ago.. here are the pics

My best friend is asian with long black hair, she wears it like this pretty often and it looks really cute. 

Good luck, let us know what you choose!
