Wedding hairstyles with a veil

How to fasten a veil to a hairstyle?

The invari­able attribute of the bride is the veil, which is the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of puri­ty and at the same time a dec­o­ra­tive ele­ment that gives her appear­ance a spe­cial fem­i­nin­i­ty. The veil is just as impor­tant as the dress, wed­ding ring and bou­quet, so you need to be able to pin it on your hair so that it looks per­fect.

Fixation methods

To make the veil look beau­ti­ful and styl­ish, you need to take into account the length of the hair and the hair­style on which it will hold. In addi­tion, the acces­so­ry can be of dif­fer­ent types:

  • there is a stan­dard veil, which is 80 cm long;
  • short ver­sion of the acces­so­ry with­in 60 cm;
  • a long veil can reach 110 cm or more when it comes to a train.

The shape of the prod­uct is cho­sen accord­ing to taste or in accor­dance with the style of the dress, so it can be in the form of a rec­tan­gle, oval, cir­cle or square. The fab­ric from which it is made is also dif­fer­ent — lace, tulle, silk, organ­za. And that’s not all — the dec­o­ra­tion is some­times addi­tion­al­ly dec­o­rat­ed with rib­bons, flow­ers, orig­i­nal lace inserts. The veil itself does not have any fix­a­tives, which is why the girls have to fig­ure out how to attach it to their hair.

In dif­fer­ent cas­es, the fol­low­ing fix­ing ele­ments can help with this:

  • based on the gen­er­al style, small light and trans­par­ent hair­pins in the form of small flow­ers, invis­i­ble hair­pins, hair­pins, both sim­ple and dec­o­rat­ed with beads, flow­ers and oth­er dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments, are suit­able for fix­ing the acces­so­ry;
  • head­bands, hoops are also able to fix ele­gant fab­ric, tiaras are a clas­sic option and will ide­al­ly be com­bined with plain tulle or silk mate­r­i­al;
  • if, in addi­tion to the veil, it is planned to use a light hat or wreath, you can fix it direct­ly to them;
  • many brides try to do with­out a comb, which tra­di­tion­al­ly holds the acces­so­ry, but today this prod­uct has already been trans­formed into a beau­ti­ful, and some­times unusu­al hair orna­ment, which also fits the beau­ti­ful image of the bride.

Of course, choos­ing a mount, you need to com­bine it with hair styling and dress.

Accessory types

Depend­ing on the type of veil, the fas­ten­ing may be dif­fer­ent.

Con­sid­er all options.

  • Grace­ful girls with a slen­der fig­ure can eas­i­ly afford to use a short acces­so­ry, actu­al­ly weight­less, for which a pair of hair­pins is suit­able. To do this, the fab­ric is care­ful­ly sewn to the hair­pin with thin white threads, and then fixed on the hair.
  • You can stab a short veil with ordi­nary stealth, or use hair­pins dec­o­rat­ed with feath­ers, flow­ers, a dia­dem is also suit­able as a fix­a­tive for this option.
  • The Span­ish veil is sim­ply thrown over the head and fas­tened over the entire area with ordi­nary hair­pins into the holes of the lace. And also the man­til­la can be pinned with invis­i­bil­i­ty near the ears or by putting a wreath of small light ros­es on top.
  • A fash­ion­able option for using a wed­ding attribute is the “Juli­et cap”, when the veil is wrapped around the head and gath­ered in a knot at the back – it can be secured with an elas­tic band, a hair­pin with flow­ers or a beau­ti­ful orna­ment.
  • Anoth­er fash­ion trend is a nar­row veil, con­sist­ing of a sin­gle lay­er of mate­r­i­al. This requires that the hair be lift­ed up or pulled into a clas­sic bun so that the fab­ric fits under it. To keep it in place, it is fixed with a few pins.
  • It will be dif­fi­cult to fix a lush and long veil with invis­i­ble hair­pins and even hair­pins, so it is bet­ter to use a comb by wind­ing a strip of mate­r­i­al around its upper part, pass­ing it between the teeth. Then an acces­so­ry is sewn to it.

Styling options

A beau­ti­ful veil is the ele­ment that goes well with both long and short hair, with pig­tails and buns. How­ev­er, you need to try so that hair­pins and hair­pins are not notice­able, unless they play the role of an addi­tion­al dec­o­ra­tion.

Some­times girls don’t want to put their hair in a com­pli­cat­ed hair­style at all, but look as nat­ur­al as pos­si­ble. Con­sid­er how to prop­er­ly wear a wed­ding acces­so­ry so that it holds.

Step-by-step instruc­tions will help you cope with this task:

  • first you need to comb your hair, as intend­ed, and style the curls;
  • then pro­tect them from sta­t­ic elec­tric­i­ty with the usu­al means that is used for clothes;
  • then you should braid a thin pig­tail on the top of the head along the entire length of the hair­style;
  • attach the veil to the top of the braid with a comb or a few spi­ral hair­pins that will hold it more secure­ly, but it can also be a hair­pin, dia­dem or head­band to which the mate­r­i­al can be sewn.

In the case of long hair that is not styled in a spe­cif­ic hair­style, you can also use a hat that will do an excel­lent job of fix­ing the train.

If the bride has short hair, she may also be puz­zled by the ques­tion of how to strength­en the veil and make sure that it does not fly off her head at the most cru­cial moment.

It turns out that this is not a prob­lem either, but you will need a light, short and one-lay­er ver­sion of the veil.

You can do this in the fol­low­ing way:

  • you will need to choose a place of attach­ment and make a small pile in this area, and pull the strand into a small pony­tail a lit­tle low­er;
  • the hair in this place must be gen­er­ous­ly var­nished and allowed to dry;
  • after that, the veil is fixed over the tied pony­tail with­out any dif­fi­cul­ties and fixed with stealth or hair­pins.

For hair that is too short, for exam­ple, a youth or sports hair­cut, it makes sense to use a dia­dem or head­band that will per­fect­ly hold the veil, and for a short bob, a wed­ding veil in com­bi­na­tion with a light hat is ide­al.
