The wearing of bridal veils started in ancient Rome, where they believe that the veil wards of bad spirits. Brides in the Far East also wear veils to signify their purity and modesty. Up to these modern times, brides still wear veils as a custom as well as a complementing accessory. The question lies in choosing the proper wedding hairstyle to go with the veil.
Loose hair with flowing curls is simple yet romantic. Dry your hair first and create loose curls by using a big barreled curling iron or big, hot rollers. Make sure to separate hairs into big sections prior to rolling it. Separate the curls using your fingers for a free-flowing appearance. Spray the curls with hairspray. Fasten the veil to your crown and let it flow loosely on top of your curls.
The classic French chignon is a popular wedding hairstyle. Part hair to the side and smooth it back to make a ponytail at your nape. Tie it securely with a hair tie. Create volume by backcombing the ponytail and smoothing it downwards. Encircle the ponytail around the hair tie to create a bun. Use pins to hold the bun in place. The veil can be worn just above or under the chignon.
