The search for suitable Bridal hairstyles with veils can be a real challenge. Because the harmony with the dress plays an important role. Not every hairstyle fits here. However, there are different variants from which to choose.
The different variants of bridal hairstyles with veils
The wedding is coming, the dress has been bought and the veil has been selected. Only the right hairstyle is still missing. There are many hairstyles, but which of the bridal hairstyles is really suitable? It is good if the bride first gets an overview of the possibilities. The best known variants include:
1. The classic: low-lying veil for the bridal hairstyle
One of the popular bridal hairstyles with veil is the deep-seated variant. This hairstyle has been used for decades. But it only works if one yourself decides on an updo. Flexibility is in the foreground, because every updo can be selected.
The veil sits classically below the bridal hairstyle. Often the bride’s hairstyle is still decorated with accessories, here pearls, a tiara (crown) or a jewelry element serve as true masters when it comes to optimally staging the hair. (#1)
The variant with a bun is just as popular as putting up curls or waves. Especially when the bride has a very heavy and long veil, this variant is only suitable if the hair is very thick and strong. With thin hair, it becomes difficult to attach the veil. This should be tested beforehand.
One advantage of this variant is the easy removal of the veil. Many brides no longer want to wear a veil during the festivities. It is simply removed from the hair and the hairstyle continues.
2. Bridal hairstyles with veil and deep knot
The knot is easy to loop and possible with little support, even with thin or somewhat shorter hair. It is very nice when the knot is tied at the neck. In this case the veil is fastened over the knot. The fabric itself falls over the knot and can play around the shoulders.
The comb can not only be attached directly above the knot, but also a little higher. This makes this hairstyle very suitable for thin hair. It can be more difficult if the veil is quite heavy. So it is possible that it will slip out of the hair because it is not held by the knot. In this case too, it is important that the hairstyle be tried once or several times if possible.
But how does the veil hold in a bridal hairstyle? Most veils are provided with a kind of small comb and are inserted into the finished finish, occasionally attached with additional hair clips. The bride decides whether the veil should sit above or below, depending on the desired finish. (# 2)
3. Nostalgic bridal hairstyles with veils
Bridal hairstyles with veils, which are supposed to match a nostalgic dress in vintage style, are available in different variations. The bridal look was already very popular at the beginning of the 19th century and is now back in fashion. The hair is worn open or gently stuck up. The Schleicher is placed over the head and fastened with a clip. The veil falls completely over the head and can even be placed so that it hides the face.
This is particularly important if it is to be a church wedding. Here many brides wish to be able to go to church veiled and only lift the veil in front of the altar. But even if it is just a short veil or a narrow hat with a veil, this hairstyle can be a very good choice.
4. The open veil
The open veil is very popular when it is a long or a medium length veil. It should fall over shoulders and back and should not be attached with a comb. Instead, it is placed over the bridal hairstyle like a cloth. Invisible brackets prevent it from slipping.
A wonderful alternative to the pinned veil with comb is the shape of the "open veil". This is carefully placed over the finished hairstyle and only attached with very minimalist needles, on the top of the head and possibly on the side. However, it must be ensured that you do not see anything of the fastening, only then does the bride’s hairstyle with the open veil appear in all its splendor. (# 2)
Veils with lace are very nice. The tip can be easily pulled into the forehead. This makes the look playful and romantic. However, if the veil reaches the floor, it may slip when the bride steps on the fabric. Therefore, several hairpins should be used here. These attach the veil invisibly and ensure that it cannot come loose.
Bridal hairstyles with veils: always test pieces with veils
The veil is one of the most important pieces of fabric that the bride wears. It is made of tulle or lace or satin and is available in different lengths. Each bride decides for herself what length she wants to wear. Everything is possible, from a short veil that does not reach to the shoulder, to medium-length to long versions that reach to the floor, but the question always arises how the veil is attached.
When testing, different hairstyles are put together according to the wishes of the bride. The bride usually thinks in which direction to go. Updos with Bun, loose curls or loose hair – everything is possible.
Regardless of whether you opt for a hairdresser on site or a makeup and hair artist at home, in any case you should try out the bridal hairstyle with a veil. If your veil is only ordered, you can borrow a veil to try out from your bridal shop. (# 4)
However, it takes a good hand to attach the veil. You can work with combs or with clips. The fixation usually takes place in such a way that the clips cannot be seen. In some variants, however, decorated combs are used, which are used as an accessory in the hair.
Particularly versatile: the half-length veil
The cathedral veil is the long variant that extends to the floor. He is particularly popular with church weddings. At the same time, it is also a major challenge if it is to be integrated into the bridal hairstyle.
It is recommended to use an updo that can hold the veil in this context. Different variants are possible with a knot or with a chignon. The fastening of the veil can be done here with clamps and clips.
The half-length veil is considered the most versatile veil ever. It is about shoulder-length or slightly longer and so skilfully plays around the hairstyle, the shoulders and the dress. Stuck with a comb, a real all-rounder for every bridal hairstyle. (# 5)
However, the half-length version is particularly versatile. This is also known as a fingertip veil and goes over your shoulder. One of the reasons why it is so popular is that it can be used on various bridal hairstyles. Regardless of whether it is loose hair, a braid, a knot or an elaborate updo – the half-length veil can be optimally attached.
The offer is rounded off by the headpieces. These short veils are reminiscent of the style of the fifties and are usually provided with a small hat or arrangement. Here, of course, the hairstyle must match the veil. This means that knots or curls that are curved at the neck and gently tucked into a banana can cut a very good figure. But this also has to be tried.
Therefore, when discussing the hairstyle, brides should always point out directly what type of veil is used. In this way, the hairdresser can prepare and make suggestions as to which variant can be used.
Conclusion: bridal hairstyles with veils in different designs
The bridal hairstyle is what is particularly important for the overall picture. The important thing here is that it harmonizes perfectly with the dress and the veil. However, the veil can become a real challenge and therefore planning the bridal hairstyle is a topic that takes a lot of time.
The wishes of the bride are in the foreground, but through effective advice from the hairdresser, it is also possible that other recommendations can be made in order to optimally fasten the veil.
A lot of time should therefore be planned for the rehearsal for the bridal hairstyle. This is the only way to find the right solution that can last long evenings and with which the bride is satisfied on her most beautiful day.
