Ways to the veil

Still don’t know how to wear your wedding veil? Don’t panic and see some suggestions from L’Arca

There are many ways to wear veil . At L’Arca we will tell you about them, and about how to put on a veil for each style.

Covering the forehead, in the pirate style

This style is trendy again, ever since some celebrities suchas Kate Moss o Laura Ponte wore  it. However, one must remember that is that it does not suit all faces, and that you must also  be careful with hairstyle to avoid hair being flattened when the veil is removed. If you’d like to use this style of veil, it’s a a good idea to ask the designer to prepare it on both sides.

To help secure the veil you may to combine this type of veil with a flower headband.


Low Midhead

This style is often used if you wear your hair slicked back or into a low bun. If you choose this veil style, you should use it in conjunction with a plastic or metal headcomb stiched to the veil to support its weight. This veil style can be reinforced with hair pins. Using a brooch is an additional option.

Midhead, with a Spanish haircomb

This style is often used by brides who wear a mid-height bun. Once the veil is removed, the haircomb can be included in the hairstyling, wether the bride’s hair is slicked back or not. In the latter case, you should secure the veil with another comb, plastic or metal.

Lowe part of the bun or hairstyle
