A bridal headpiece is a great option for brides wanting to add a statement piece to their hair. They are decadent in detail, serve the function of framing your hairstyle and/or wedding veil, and create a beautiful focal point from behind as you walk down the aisle.
HOW TO LAYER YOUR WEDDING VEIL AND HEADPIECE
When this look is styled correctly, it is simply breathtaking. Unfortunately, not all combs and veils can be styled together. The size of your headpiece and veil are important, as are the attachments on each piece.
To achieve the layered look, it’s important to think about proportions, spacing, and your hairstyle. The goal is to create a look where the headpiece and veil appear as one and pair seamlessly together.
Here are some tips to create a picture-perfect headpiece and veil layered look.
1: Secure Your Veil
The more accessories you have in your hair, the greater the base that is needed to support them. The layered look is best suited for an updo, but a half-up half-down, or even loose wavy hairstyle can be achieved using a few simple techniques to secure those metal hair combs.

2. Secure The Headpiece On The Top Of The Veil
Once the veil is secured into place with bobby pins, you’re now ready to position the headpiece and pin it into place. It’s best to secure the veil first and then the headpiece on top of the veil’s comb for a more seamless finish.
CHOOSE HEADPIECES CONSTRUCTED USING SPLIT COMBS OR NO COMB AT ALL
When styling your wedding comb and veil, make sure you take into account how they’re constructed. If you have two central combs (one on the veil and one in the middle of the headpiece), it will be possible to layer them one on top of the other but it may be more of a headache – literally – than it’s worth.
Look for headpieces designed around a split comb system or headpieces which don’t feature a comb at all. This way you can easily position the veil, position the headpiece and easily secure them into place.
