Whenever I’ve tried on a veil (first the sample ones when I was shopping for my dress and now my actual veil) they don’t seem to stay on my head or in my hair very well. I put them on in one spot, and pretty soon the comb is just falling down and gravity takes over. What’s the best way to keep that sucker in place? I know some are put into a specific hair style, but I’m wearing my hair down and loose.
And then, how is the veil prepped? I mean, is it steamed or ironed or what? My veil is all bent out of shape from being hanged up.

@msbibliotecaria: I’ve got thick hair so I’m lucky in that the comb stayed in place. When I picked up my veil they said to hang it like in a bathroom and the steam from the shower will help get the creases out.

Loads of bobby pins in my hair !!!
We hung mine in the bathroom (away from water, of course) and the steam helped flatten the creases. Then just hung it up until it was time to put it in.

A combination of bobby pins and a hell of a lot of hair spray!

you hair stylist can make a few tiny ponytails with clear elastics under the hair where the veil will go… the comb then stick into these as seen in this website

I saw a diagram which would be able to explain it better but I can’t find it 🙁 Essentially though it suggests creating two secure little “loops” from hair and pins that the comb can then slip into

Wow those ponytais are genius!! I’m going to try it out once I have my makeup and hair trial, thanks for the great and helpful responses! 🙂
