Bridal Hairstyles With Comb Ideas

Top 8 wedding hairstyles for bridal veils

There are so many ways to wear a veil. But it can be tricky finding a hairstyle that will support your veil, and frame your face and hair from behind. The hair challenge gets trickier when you think about all the beautiful options – updos, waves, straight, side swept, half-up half-down. The list goes on!

To get you on your way to finding that stunning hairstyle you’ve been dreaming of, here’s our top 8 wedding hairstyles for bridal veils.

1. The classic blow wave

You should never underestimate the potential of a perfect blow wave. It is refined and understated, and perfect when you have an elaborate or detailed dress and/or veil. But it also looks fantastic with a simple show-stopping gown.

Hair down styles work beautifully with a classic tulle veil or mantilla. Something nice and light which can be positioned at the crown.

2. Tousled curls and big waves

Curls and waves are a popular choice for brides. Similar to the classic blow wave, your veil will need to be light and anchored with bobby pins or a comb to ensure it stays in place as there is no updo or gathering of hair to attach to.

3. Half-up half-down

Half-up half-down is a faithful style that is complementary to many face shapes and lengths of hair. It is a look that works with or without a fringe. Try it with a soft curl, wave or add some subtle volume to your crown.

This style is fantastic for a veil because it gives you a foundation to secure it. The look works well with cascading, multiple tiered veils as well as fingertip veils. Soft, sweeping and elegant long veils will add a touch of whimsical romance. It is definitely one of the most versatile bridal hairstyles to choose.

5. High wedding updos

High wedding updos such as the ballet bun, are all about elevating your look. This style works well with cascading veils and classic tulle veils. Generally the veil is worn below the updo, but it all depends on the length of the veil and what looks and feels good to you.

A sheer drop veil pairs beautifully with a high wedding updo. Simply position the veil’s comb above the bun and the sheer fabric will gracefully drop over the bun for a look that’s ethereal and romantic.

If styling your veil with a hairpiece, nestle your veil comb between your updo and headpiece to create a beautiful image. Consider wearing a blusher for that touch of mystique. We suggest a delicate veil to contrast the slightly more dramatic hairstyle. It will add softness and grace as it creates an elegant long line.

6. Low set wedding updos

Low wedding updos, such as your chignons, and romantic messy buns are so fashionable right now. This style is so versatile, and you can choose from a range of veil lengths, with or without a blusher.

We usually suggest securing your veil into the top of your updo. But it also works if you prefer to style your veil from the crown or as a mantilla.

Try adding some bridal pins to the side of your veil, or a comb just above – so that it overlaps the veil. It’ll elevate your entire hairstyle and bridal look.
