I have medium length hair but its quite thin, especially at the top. For example, I wouldn’t have enough hair to do a half up/half down style. I also find the veils really heavy and pull on my hair to the point its a bit painful. I am plannniign on a chapel or cathedral length veil. What type should i get to solve my thin hair issues!
My mum recommends getting a two tier veil to add fullness on the top of my head The problem is that my dress has a lovely back which I wanted to show off.
I am thinking single layer will be lighter and allow me to show off my back. But then my hair might look thin.
What to do!!

I would make friends with your hair stylist, who could definitely make it look like you have a lot more volume. As for a veil, the longer the veil, the heavier it is. I would stick with a single tier fingertip veil, do a birdcage veil, or forgo the veil all together. They are expensive, heavy, and you only wear it for like an hour. Don’t do that to your head, especially if you worry about it falling out.
If you are dead set on a veil, I would really go shorter.

Agree with PP your hairstylist can give you more volume than you might think! Curling, dry shampoo, etc. all add a lot of volume. And the really voluminous updos you see in photoshoots often utilize foam pieces hidden under the hair. You might consider a mantilla-style veil or a birdcage. There would be less pulling on your scalp.
