The Bridal Veil

There are so many different styles of bridal veils to choose from! Make sure the veil you select complements the design and fabric of your dress – and your hairstyle.

I recommend selecting a veil that has a small comb attached to it. Inserting this comb into your styled hair secures the veil in place. Try on the veil with your hairstyle before your wedding day and consider how you want to position it – do you want to insert the comb above or below the focal point of the hairstyle? Once you have decided where the comb will be inserted, create a base to support the comb by backcombing the hair in that part of the hairstyle.

INSERTING AND REMOVING

Inserting and removing the comb is simple, and shouldn’t have any impact on your hairstyle. Practice before your wedding day to make sure you get it right.

  1. Select a veil that is attached to a metal or plastic comb. Make sure the veil complements the design and fabric of your dress, and suits your hairstyle.
  2. Decide where you want to insert the comb before you start styling the hair. During the styling process, build up a base to support the comb by backcombing the hair in that spot.
  3. Style the hair as desired. When the hairstyle is finished, gently insert the comb. Make sure you push the comb in straight so that it can be removed by pulling it out in the opposite direction. Also, make sure to push in the comb deep enough so that it is entirely concealed by the hair.
  4. When you are ready to remove the veil, gently pull out the comb in the opposite direction.
