Don’t let a veil stand in the way of style! 👰
For many brides, wearing a veil is a key part of the wedding day experience and it would be a shame to pass up the opportunity to rock one! However, it does pose a bit of a problem: choosing between all the romantic wedding hairstyles with a veil, to find the one that will be right for you.
Now, there’s no need for this to be a cause of stress, as there are plenty of veiled ‘dos out there that look drop dead gorgeous, both under the veil and for your reception! Whether it’s braids, buns or bouffants that take your fancy, we’ve got it all.
8 wedding hairstyles with a veil to consider for your big day
1. Low chignon
If you’ve gone down the traditional route with your wedding and you’re looking for wedding hairstyles with a veil to compliment this theme, we would always recommend a chic low chignon.

2. Side braid
If updos aren’t really your thing, don’t feel pressured into rocking one for your wedding! Romantic side-swept braids (like this Instagrammer’s) are a great alternative to wearing your tresses up and still allow you to show off your length. Credit: @belairebridal
Editor’s tip: Spray the Toni&Guy Illuminating Hair Perfume onto your locks to give your braid a shimmering shine and a heavenly scent to match.
3. Polished ponytail
To give a standard ponytail a wedding-worthy upgrade, add a dainty twist detail at the base of your pony, for an easy way to work your go-to look for the big day.
For extra style points, loosen a few face-framing tendrils of hair and curl them for a soft, feminine look. Then just secure your veil above your ponytail and get ready to dance the night away! Credit: @ellasbridalhair
4. Milkmaid braid
Your wedding day should be the start of your happily ever after, so get the fairytale off to the best start with this whimsical milkmaid braid.

7. Half-up bouffant
Editor’s tip: Using a volumising dry shampoo, such as the TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo, will help inject some volume into your locks and give your ‘do more texture, enabling your bouffant to last all day and well into the night!
8. Fairytale braids
Wearing a veil doesn’t mean you have to settle for a look that’s anything less than spectacular!
