When a bride’s hairstyle is done, her make-up is flawless, and the wedding dress looks amazing, one significant detail remains – a veil.
It is the quintessential symbol of every bride. The traditional final touch for your bridal hairstyle is a veil, which comes in second only to donning your stunning gown.
If you love veils, there is a crucial matter to solve before you proceed down the aisle: How will you style your hair with a veil on your big day? Here are 25 wedding hairstyles with veils that you’ll love.
Bridal Hairstyle Ideas With Veil
Nearly all bridal hairstyles may be worn with a veil, but placement is crucial, so brides need not worry. There really aren’t any steadfast rules that you have to follow.
And today, we’ve rounded up lots of inspiration, whether you’re considering an updo with your veil or want to highlight your lengthy tresses.
1. Side Swept Pony Tail With Long Curls And Bangs
There’s nothing prettier than a side-swept ponytail with big curls, wispy bangs, and a veil placed in the middle of the back of the head. Placing the veil low doesn’t overpower the bride allowing her radiant beauty to shine.
2. Voluminous Veil For Short Hair
If you have short hair or want to wear a full updo, then this veil is for you! A 2-layer circular cut veil with lots of volume creates a romantic and traditional look.
3. Gorgeous Ginger Locks With Updo & Big Curls
When you have gorgeous ginger hair, you don’t want to wear a veil that covers it. Embrace your beautiful red hair with a classic updo and some large curls, and place your veil under the updo. Doing this allows the veil to cascade gently down the back or gently sit on the edge of the shoulders.
In this example, the bride wears a 2-layer veil with a ribbon edge.
