Pinned to Perfection | How to secure a birdcage veil
One of the most common questions I get asked is – how do I secure a birdcage veil?
It’s a very, very good question. With a very, very simple answer. In fact, it can be done in two easy steps.
Step 1: Position the comb or clip in a spot that feels comfortable. It can be on the hairline, further back or more to the side. Experiment until you find a place that frames your eyes and complements your hairstyle.
Step 2: Grab a few bobby pins – 2 or 3 should be enough – and carefully pin the netting down into your hair. You will just need to thread the bobby pin through one or two of the diamond shaped pattern to hold the netting down.
The key is to ensure the bobby pins are hidden so to the untrained eye, it will look like the veil is part of your hairstyle.
