Here Are Some Ways to Wear a Veil:

Chignons, Low Updos and Veils

There are many wedding hairstyles that include veils. Since chignons can be made as casual or formal as desired, they are suitable for all wedding seasons, venues and dress collar lines. You have two options when adding a veil: a chignon or messy bun. 

  • Option one: You can tuck the veil into the top of your hairstyle, which will lift it up and out. 
  • Option two: Add the veil on the bottom of the bun. This will bring the veil up and out, as well as make it appear longer.

Veil With Beaded Headband

  • For a romantic, classic look, add a beaded or pearl headband with a loose chignon. Then pin your veil at the base.

Chignon With Side-Braid

  • Side braids can be added to a messy bun, low hairstyle or a low-updo for an elegant wedding hairstyle. ).

Hijab With Veil

  • Look for local bridal retailers and seamstresses to create a veil or headpiece that fits your needs.

Birdcage Veil for Formal Updo

  • The birdcage veil never goes out-of-style. It is sweet and simple. This accessory is a great choice if you're looking for a classic bridal look, but don't want to deal with a long veil. Birdcage veil styles look particularly elegant when paired with low-chignons or slight bouffant styles.

Chignon With Central Part

  • The smooth, flyaway free chignon will look great with medium and long length veils. Plus, by keeping the hair off your face, you can showcase a beautiful pair of earrings.

Messy Low Bun

  • To create an ethereal and perfectly undone look, curl a few sections of your hair to add texture and volume. Pin your veil on the underside of the bun and you're a goddess bride.

Another Ways to Wear a Veil: A Half-up Wedding Hairstyles With Veils

  • The veil must be attached on the bottom of half-up, half-down hairstyles. Hairstyles and veils should be placed at the crown or below. For an added touch, many brides choose to add a sparkling hair comb or beaded hair pins, fresh flower, or another wedding accessory on top of their veil.

Half-up Hairstyle Using Comb

  • When tucked in a half-up curly style, rhinestones add just the right amount of sparkle. If your veil is more simple, this is a great way to add a little more sparkle to your hair.

Half-up Hairstyles With Headband

  • A headband can be added to a half-updo to help keep the fly-aways under control. This is especially useful if your ceremony or reception will take place outdoors.

Boho Half up Hairstyle With Flowers

  • Your wedding hairstyle will have a more free-spirited feel if you use delicate flowers, such as these sweet wax blossoms.

Half-up Hairstyles With Blusher Veil

  • Twist two sections of hair in the front and pin them to the back. For a vintage look, add a blusher veil.

Long Wedding Hairstyles With Veils: A top to Wear a Veil

  • We love loose curls for long hair when it comes to wedding hairstyles. This is especially true if you want a romantic, effortless look. The comb on the veil will not "hook" onto your hair if you plan to wear it down. If you want to anchor the veil, either use bobby pins or add some clip in hair extensions. They will make your hair look more voluminous. Wearing a mantilla, which is usually attached to the top of the head with bobby pins instead of the back.

Deep Side Part With Veil

  • Clip one side of your hair back with a sparkling barrette. For a royal look, finish with a cathedral-length veil. This would be ideal for a winter wedding.

Wedding Veil with Flowers

  • Use fresh flowers to pin back one side of your hair if you want to make a statement. These phalaenopsis orchids and roses with large blooms are impossible to miss.

Braided Wedding Hairstyles With Veil

  • You can create a quick and easy style if you are wearing braids for your wedding. Secure a few strands with your veil at the back.

Wedding Veil in Front Face

  • Position lace appliques on your veil at the front, just above your head, for a vintage, dramatic look.

Curled Hair With Wedding Veil

  • This veil-only wedding hairstyle is one of the best options for a timeless look. If you want to go for total minimalism then skip the sparkles and wear your veil higher on your head. This will show off your loose, bouncy hair.

Mantilla Wedding Veil

  • Mantillas are worn close to your hairline and cover almost the entire head and shoulders. These lace veils are perfect if your hair needs to be covered for religious or aesthetic reasons.

Top Knots for Weddings and Updos With Veils

  • If you're looking for a style to wear at a summer wedding, high updos will do the trick. The traditional updo is always a good idea for wedding hair, but top knots and braided buns work well for brides who want a more casual style. The bridal veil is elegant and chic if it's fastened under the updo. If you want to achieve a retro look try a bouffant and place the veil close to the hairline.

There are still a lot of ways to wear a veil or shall we say  a wedding veil; some are classic, while others offer a modern twist to this timeless accessory. Each style presents a unique opportunity for brides to express their individuality and enhance their bridal ensemble
