A veil is considered an obligatory component of the image of the bride, as it emphasizes the purity and innocence of the girl walking down the aisle. However, despite the traditions, recently many ladies prefer to do hairstyles for a wedding without a veil. This is due not only to the personal preferences of the fair sex, but also to fashion trends.
Today, there are many hair styling options for the bride without the traditional veil. Such wedding hairstyles are distinguished by unusual volume and splendor. A decorative headband or wreath completes the look and makes the girl feel more comfortable, as it gets rid of constantly interfering fabric. In addition, the absence of a classic attribute takes away the worries about how it will be combined with the outfit.
The main feature of styling curls without a veil is that all attention in the image of a beauty is focused on the hairstyle, so it must be impeccably executed and original. If the celebration falls on the hot season, then the hair should be removed from the neck as much as possible, using a minimum of varnish and gel.
At the same time, it is important to ensure that the installation retains its original appearance during gusts of wind and in rainy weather.
Often, for wedding hairstyles, the design of which provides for the absence of a veil, simple curls are made. The hair is slightly curled around the edges and loosened.
To give the image originality and chic, it is recommended to decorate the strands with the help of flowers and special accessories. It is desirable to select them for a bouquet and decorations. For example, mother-of-pearl hoops with neck ornaments made of silver and cubic zirkonia look beautiful. An original solution will be a wreath of gems, it will be ideally combined with accessories with corundum.
A wedding veil can be easily replaced with the following attributes:
- crown, diadem, tiara;
- a small veil of transparent fabrics;
- flowers or woven wreaths;
- lace and ribbons;
- bandages and headbands;
- hairpins and hairpins.
When choosing a style without a veil, it is important to consider the style and color of the wedding dress. In most cases, a hairstyle can be created even without any decorations. To do this, it is enough to get by with small decorative accessories in the form of stealth and hairpins.
Long hair styling
If the length of the bride’s curls allows, you can quickly create a hairstyle that will give the image naturalness and romanticism. An original flower arrangement or one large bud is added to long soft waves. If the girl has a narrow face, then you should choose the option with lush curls. It is recommended to issue a similar form with a diadem.
Long curls allow styling in many ways. They can be beautifully laid to one side or collected in a high tail.
Long curls without a veil, gathered in a bun, are very popular. It can be a hairstyle that imitates slight negligence, or hair collected with perfect accuracy.
A variety of beams open the back and shoulders of the girl, beautifully emphasize the stylish finish of the dress, allowing you to see every detail of the festive outfit. Bunches are often tied with lace, silk or satin ribbons. In this case, the ribbon can simply be wrapped around the assembled bundle or formed into a voluminous bow.
The shade of the bandage, as a rule, is snow-white or is selected in accordance with the color of the hair. Blondes are recommended ribbons in beige tones, brunettes will be decorated with red, blue or white braid, but it is better for brown-haired women to opt for golden, pearl and coral shades. Such an addition can be the highlight of the image.
Hairstyles without a veil with beautiful knots and weaves are in great demand. To do this, strands are wound around the head, into which decorations from flowers or ribbons are first woven. The result is a charming and gentle image. In addition, from long strands you can weave a Greek braid to one side or a “French spikelet”. An unusual solution will be two braids wrapped around the head. They need to be secured with pins.
Short hair styling
The simplest is styling without a wedding veil for a short haircut. It is characterized by the absence of complex shapes, but it looks beautiful. Since the hairstyle is created without the main attribute of the wedding, the emphasis is on the use of accessories and jewelry.
At the same time, short strands should not be too fixed with styling products. The hairstyle should remain light and natural.
Curls of medium length are most often collected up and strengthened with varnish. The high-cut design goes well with modern styles of wedding dresses. To visually lengthen the curls and give them the missing volume, it is recommended to first comb the strands, and then collect them in a bun at the back, decorating them with a hairpin or a flower.
If the bride wants to add significant length to her hair, you can use false hairpieces or curls. It is important to match them to the complexion and hair, otherwise it will be noticeable that the strands are “artificial”.
No less interesting look styling with free curls. They need to be slightly curled and dissolved. This option is great for bob or square hairstyles. A diadem, a small hat or an openwork veil will help to decorate the styling.
Bold brides can experiment and agree to styling in retro style. You can choose curls that resemble “cold waves” like movie actresses, or make straight strands decorated with a rim. This style will complement a short wedding dress in an original way.
For the fair sex, who are the owners of bangs, it is better to do voluminous styling. Sometimes the strands are combed and collected inside. A good option is when the hair is pulled up. But with such styling, you should be careful so that the image does not turn out to be too formal.
It is recommended to compensate for the short length with stylish jewelry in the form of headbands and diadems. No less interesting will be styling with ribbons or flower buds.
If the styling is done in a classic style, it is important that the bride’s image contains a minimum number of accessories (for example, an elegant necklace or pearl earrings). If the outfit involves an abundance of details, then the hairstyle should be done with minimal decor. If a laconic dress and a small amount of jewelry are chosen, you can focus on the bride’s hair.
