Wedding hairstyles with a veil
On the day of the wedding, the bride should be the most beautiful. It is not only the dress and makeup that plays a role here, but also the hairstyle. A special attribute is a veil, it is a symbol of innocence. Therefore, thinking over the wedding image, it is necessary to pay great attention to the combination of hairstyles and veils.
Veil and its types
When choosing a hairstyle for a wedding look, it is necessary to take into account the presence of a veil. Depending on the length and type of this wedding accessory, a hairstyle is selected. It should be understood that if you have a long multi-layered veil, then it does not make sense to make complex weaves, since they will not be visible. Consider the main types of veils and their combination with hairstyles.
The longest of all available types. It is this option that is shown in romantic foreign films. Remember how a beautiful bride walks down the aisle in the church, and behind her is a weightless train, the length of which can reach up to four meters. It looks very nice in the picture, but in life it causes a lot of inconvenience. Therefore, many beauties, who have dreamed of just such an option since childhood, put on a similar model only for an official ceremony, and then either remove it or replace it with a more convenient and shorter option.
It cannot be said that a veil greatly limits the bride in choosing a hairstyle. The classic option is hair gathered at the back of the head or a high bump.
But with different mounting options, curls can also be made. If the veil does not have embroidery and other decorations, then fresh flowers can be used. This will create a very romantic and original look.
Don’t forget the dress too. With such a classic version of the veil, long fitted dresses to the floor will look best.
Then the veil will gently flow along it and fall to the floor. Puffy skirts will prevent the “free fall” of a delicate veil, it will lie on the dress below the waist, which will ruin the impression.
Also quite a long veil, but it has a very short train. It is most practical if it lies neatly on the train of the dress. You can be sure that it will not get dirty at least until the official ceremony. If a photo shoot is planned in nature, then the bride will have to take care not to stain the veil.
As for the dress, the options with a small train look the most advantageous.
This, of course, is not very convenient. But it’s worth it if you’ve always dreamed of appearing at your own wedding as a Disney princess. Since most often the veil-chapel is attached to the top of the head, the appropriate hairstyles are chosen. It can be cones, and high tails, and bunches.
The best option for those who want a long veil, but do not want to endure inconvenience. Its length corresponds to the height of the bride and barely touches the floor.
There will be no need to be afraid that with inaccurate movement or in the dance you will accidentally step on the train.
It can be either single layer or multilayer.
You can also provide a veil that will hide the face of the bride before the ceremony. You can choose your hairstyle according to your choice. Both complex hairstyles with weaving and loose curls look beautiful.
Ensure that the veil is securely fastened to the head, as its length also affects the weight.
An interesting option for those who want to bring zest to their image. If you have been reading Shakespeare since childhood, then you will be pleased to know that this particular model is called “Juliet’s hat” in Europe. It is a cap (or bandanna) made of a veil that gathers at the back of the head and falls down in a “waterfall”.
For this option, dresses in retro style are selected. The image is complete and original. The hat itself is decorated with lace, stones or flowers (both living and decorative). At the same time, you should choose a dress so that it supports the theme and matches the pattern (decoration) of the veil. As for hairstyles, the “hat” imposes its own limitations.
You can’t make lush hair. But smooth licked hair will support the image.
This is an exact translation of the English name blusher. The point is that part of the veil covers the entire face of the bride during the ceremony. This gives the impression that the girl shyly hides the blush on her cheeks. After the veil leans back.
Therefore, when choosing a hairstyle, it will be necessary to ensure that it looks great both under the veil and without it.
This version of the veil is one of the most romantic and delicate. It gives the impression of a girl — a riddle. As for the bride’s attire, it can be both puffy dresses with a frame and fitted models.
Another name for this model is Spanish. This is a traditional element of the image of the bride from sunny Spain and the Mediterranean countries. Very delicate fabric with beautiful lace along the entire length. It can be completely woven from beautiful patterns and motifs. A feature is the unusual way of its fastening. She seems to be thrown over her head, like a scarf.
Everyone understands that without additional invisible elements (invisible, hairpins, etc.), it simply will not hold. Too lush hairstyle will not work, as the part that covers the head will press it.
But loose beautiful curls are quite appropriate. A high ponytail or bump will also stand out strongly and give the image an absurdity.
But this version of the veil seems to be created for high beams. On a beautiful hairpin (it can be made of pearls, with natural flowers or covered with rhinestones), a veil with many folds is attached. Thus, volume is created, and the veil falls apart along the hairstyle and shoulders. There are no special restrictions on the outfit.
Here you can try on classic options, and neckline, and even short models.
If you do not want to use a long veil, but honor the traditions, then the veil option is perfect for you. This is a short veil that does not even reach the shoulders. Made from mesh or tulle. The fabric should keep its shape well, otherwise it will lie on the head like a rag. The short form gives freedom when choosing a hairstyle. Retro outfits look elegant, but you can find a model that will go well with a puffy dress with many layers.
How to choose a dress for the type of face and figure?
Depending on the type of face and figure, you can stop at the following types of hairstyles and veils.
- Square face. The sharp line of the cheekbones can be smoothed out with a voluminous hairstyle and a cascading veil that will gently envelop the oval of the face.
- Round face. Choose models of veils and hairstyles that hide cheeks. That is, two vertical lines should form along the face. Whether it will be a veil or hair, you decide.
- Long face. You should not consider models that lie in straight lines along the entire length. It is better to pay attention to the lush options that envelop the face. It will seem that it is just thin, and not elongated.
- Oval face. There are no hard limits here. We can say that this face shape is universal, and any options are suitable for it.
- Chubby. It is necessary to visually stretch the figure due to the veil and dress. Heels come to the rescue, not very puffy floor-length dresses and a veil flowing along the body.
- With wide hips. To visually hide this flaw, choose the length of the veil to the fingertips. So that there is no obvious emphasis on the hips. And balanced proportions will create the illusion of an ideal figure.
- Low stature. Choosing huge heels and a floor-length dress will be a mistake. This will make the situation even worse. It is better to give preference to outfits of medium length or completely short (if the figure allows).
- High. And here, a long, flowing floor-length dress is what you need. Who can be more elegant than such a fragile and tender bride? A veil is also chosen to the floor or even with a train.
- Skinny. There are no special restrictions. A veil to the waist or hips looks very advantageous.
Each girl herself chooses whether to prefer fashion trends or choose classic wedding hairstyles with a veil. In any case, special attention should be paid to laying. On the one hand, it should be beautiful and elegant, on the other hand, it should be comfortable and not deteriorate by the evening. But fixing varnishes do an excellent job with the latter task.
With a bang
Straight bangs create a clear geometry. It looks very stylish. But this option is not suitable for everyone.
Make sure that during the celebration it does not fly apart, but lies in an even, smooth sheet.
With curls and loose curls, bangs will look very romantic. But it is better to refuse complex weaving and braids. So, in the presence of a veil and other accessories, the image can become overloaded.
Slanting bangs are less demanding and create a more romantic vibe. With a braid or fleece, almost all options are acceptable here. Both the first and this type of bangs go well with a diadem. If you want to feel like a real princess, then no one will stop you from doing this. The diadem in most cases is located at the base of the bangs.
Long bangs are already hardly reminiscent of the classic version. It seems that this is already part of the bulk of the hair. The strands can lie freely along the face or be pulled back. In the latter case, the hairstyle is decorated on top with a small diadem, headband, comb.
Contrary to popular belief, an image with bangs is easy to match with a veil. It doesn’t matter if your hair is blond, red or dark.
But just do not try to fit everything in one outfit at once. With a crown and a veil at the same time, you will no longer look fashionable and stylish.
To date, there are two main trends in wedding hairstyles with loose hair. This is either a perfectly smooth smooth surface of the hair, or curls (but not elastic, but as if slightly blooming). The latest model looks good with a wreath of flowers.
If the hair is long, then you can create the illusion that they seem to be accidentally intertwined with each other, but at the same time remain free of braids and tails. Both the first and second options will look interesting in the Malvinka styling. This is when strands from the temporal region (on one side and the other) are pulled back and fastened together.
Whether the curls are collected from below or taken into a high bump, such hairstyles always look very neat. Just do not fence on the head “Babylon”, as was customary in the near zero. That is, it seems that the hair is collected, but on top there are a lot of small curls, braids and boutonnieres, and this is all together.
Although this is an unusual and significant day of your life, you should give preference to naturalness and simplicity.
This is much more difficult to achieve. But an experienced stylist can do everything.
It is simply impossible to list all possible variants of braids and their combinations. It can be openwork, Greek or small braids, forming tricky weaves. Contact the master in advance and do a dress rehearsal of the hairstyle. After all, you don’t build something like this on your head every day, and therefore you can’t be sure that the image will look good.
He can be very strict and slick. There are also looser options, such as Italian (when the strands, as if by accident, fell out of the bundle) or with weaving. With any of the options, the veil looks great. And even if during the main celebration you want to take it off, the image will not lose its elegance and festivity.
For the wedding
Most often, they choose an image with a veil covering the head. As for the hairstyle itself, it can be arbitrarily different. According to tradition, it is believed that hair should not be loose. If you listen and follow all the existing superstitions, then it is still unknown what will come out of the image in the end.
Remember that getting married and getting married are two different events. (although they are related).
And if for a wedding you can freely choose a chic puffy dress embroidered with stones and rhinestones, then for a wedding it is better to choose a more modest option.
This will emphasize the solemnity and importance of the moment.
Successful examples and options
It is difficult to say which hairstyle and veil model is ideal. Every woman is different and every woman has her own preferences. Of great importance is also how she imagines the ideal image of the bride: whether it will be a Greek-style hairstyle or with a headband, shell or tiara. We will only present a few successful examples of wedding images.
