How To Secure Your Classic Wedding Veil

How do I secure my beautiful Britten veil? I hear you ask! This is a question we receive from our brides in the lead up to their big day!

Now a good hairdresser will be able to take this worry away from you on the morning of your wedding, however it's always great to know how to attach it if you are creating your own perfect hair style or if you need to place it back in later in the day. 

Veils do naturally feel more secure within a hair up do however there are a number of ways to secure your veil to all styles! 

 

A great way to secure the comb of your veil is to lift the top layer of your hair and just below where you want your classic veil to sit, secure two kirby grips in an x shape. Drop your top layer of hair to cover the grips and secure the comb in the x shape. It is always a good idea to use kirby grips that match your hair colour.

Another way is to back comb the section of hair you are looking to attach your veil too, smooth it down and looking gorgeous, slide the comb in and place a kirby grip on either side of the comb to attach it to your hair. This one can be a little dependant on your style of hair but can work perfectly. 

For brides with short hair it is always a little more tricky to get the veils to hold in place. A clever way to ensure the comb doesn't slide out is to lift the top layer of hair and secure tiny ponytails with mini elastic bands. Drop the top layer of hair back down and secure the veil into the hidden ponytails. This is such a quick and easy trick!

Enjoy wearing your veil knowing it is secure throughout the day :)

When I am not working in the gorgeous boutique I love to read a good book and if you can turn these into a movie then I will never leave the cinema. You can often find me in the kitchen baking, playing with our kitten Misty or gaming with my hubby. I also love Giraffes because they feel like family (I'm very tall!) :)
