Did anyone or is anyone planning to wear their hair in loose beach waves AND have a veil (I am planning to wear a veil just for pics and the ceremony). I was reading that it can be hard to secure/keep the veil in place when your hair is down but I just don’t want an updo or even a half updo!
My dress is very boho so I would like hair that matches that.
Hair would be something like this- loose beach waves/ bombshell blowout: https://www.instagram.com/p/9qr2aVO_al/
Any tips for securing the veil or should I go with at least a few hair pieces pulled back for the viel to secure on to?

It can be tricky since there’s nothing stopping the comb from just sliding straight through, but you can always throw some good ol bobby pins in to secure the veil comb. I’m sure it’s something you can talk to your stylist about when you do your hair trial.
Or, if you’re doing your hair yourself, I would use bobby pins and create a slight “V” in the back with them, just below where you want to put your veil. That will give the veil comb a sort of shelf to sit on.

I was hoping your wedding would be before mine so you could come back and let me know how this went!
This is exactly how I want my hair, but I don’t know how realistic it is.
I might pin back two bits of hair jsut for the ceremony so the veil has more to grip to and then take my hair down for the rest of the day. Or I might go for a drop veil but I don’t know how well pins would hold the veil with such a silky hairstyle, I might look for a very delicate hair band to hold the veil in place.

It’ll be tricky if your hair is completely down. I didn’t do a veil but did the long beach waves and added a small fishtail braid on one side to put some flowers in. If you did a 1/2 up loose braid the veil will stay easier

My friend did this with no issues. She had her hair completely down and I think the stylist kind of teased a small section to give the veil more grip, and then just used pins/hairspray.

Hmm thanks ladies! I just dont have MUCH hair so I don’t want to pin any back ideally. Or have to deal with taking pins out later and then my hair is all messed up etc. I am not a hair person at all, love natural easy waves.

I agree with just teasing it a bit where the comb will go in and spraying the hell out of it! If you have a professional do it, they may be able to put in a hidden braid that will hold it, but still give you the look you want! That’s what my stylist is doing, but I’m having my hair up

Yep, I’m a stylist and the girls who say tease it are 100% correct. If you don’t want to pull anything up, don’t. You can still have the style you want. Take the top “layer” of your hair in your crown section. Clip it up out of the way. Take a decent section of hair (maybe 3 inches across or so?) and tease it WELL. Then lay the top layer back down so it’s covering the teased section underneath. Put the comb in and it will lock into the teased middle section. If you have super fine hair and are afraid of it slipping you can Bobby pin the veil comb from underneath also so nothing is showing. I’m hoping this makes sense. If you’re doing your hair yourself, just have a trusty friend make sure you don’t have any teased pieces showing from underneath the top layer so it looks nice and smooth on top. And absolutely finish with some hairspray.

My hair was completely down and the veil worked just fine! Just popped the comb in and then took it off later — hair was unaffected 🙂 My sister was my maid of honor and wore hers partially up — I’m sure that could work too.
