Pinned to Perfection | How to secure a birdcage veil
Securing a birdcage veil to your hair is simple, once you know how. Please don’t feel discouraged if you aren’t familiar with how to do it at first. There’s very few opportunities in life to wear a birdcage veil so it’s understandable that you may not know how to wear it straight away.

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 that’s the same colour as your hair. Two or three should be enough. 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.
