I’ve come across some great threads on DIY birdcages. BUT they all seem to use two clips and I’m either not getting how this works, or its not right for the hairstyle I’ve chosen. Ummm, where does the facinator go? Does the other end just float in my hair?
So, does anyone have pictures of the back of their two clip birdcage veil that might clear this up for me?
OR DIY instructions for a 1 clip DIY birdcage? Cause you’re all so DIY savvvvy!

With one clip it’s all about the way you cut the birdcage veil and sew it to your clip. Most of the time you need to keep your veil on the smaller size becaue the longer it is the more it wll move. But a simple bobby pin works miracles and if you pin it right won’t even be noticable. I have a friend that makes them maybe she can help you if you’d like?

I did this! I actually didn’t use any fascinators at all because I felt boring that day, but if you use hat netting (wider veiling, like most birdcage veils use); you can gather the cut edges together on one side and it will form a little circle. Then you can clip the sewn edge to the side of your hair do.
Or, you can use bobby pins on both sides, and a fascinator on one. (Or no fascinator–they do not have to be attached.)

The ones with 2 clips are called bandeau birdcage veils. The clips go behind each ear and the netting goes horizontally across the entire face. Both sides would look like this:
The ones with one clip attach either at the top or the side of the head, so they can be placed asymmetrically to look more like this:
You can see the difference in where the netting gathers. It all depends on which angle of tilt you like best, since bandeau veils are pretty horizontal.
