I have very short cropped hair and want to wear a veil. Combs, Bobby pins, clips and hair weave clips all don't work as there is not enough hair to support the veil. I don't want to attach it to a hairband. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can wear a veil on my hair length?

Back comb it or clip in extensions

I would ask your hairdresser. If there is enough hair to back comb slightly and add some product the comb of the veil should stay in.

Have you looked into a bigger Barrette clip? One of those should hold it on as they don't need much hair to clip on to, depending on the weight of the veil of course. Even two small ones so it's anchored in two places might work.

I had a pixie cut and was able to back comb a little piece. If not, hair glue? My cousin used to use it to stick in her hair extensions, I'm not sure if it's actually called hair glue though lol, but you get the gist x

How about a bird cage veil. Not as heavy so might work a bit better also ask a professional hairdresser to do your hair, they can back comb it and make it sit in your hair better x

I had short hair and I had a cathedral length veil, lots of back combing, a cage of Bobby pins and lots of hair spray

Howabout a flower crown and attach the veil to it?

"Got to be" is a really good powder to put in short hair that makes it not so fine. It means that ounds and the likes seem to hep the haute a lot better. It's primary focus us to give your hair volume. But it creates such a rough feel in the hair that everything grabs it. Give it a try this is what it looks like....

Hair spray is supposed to help grip

I have short bobbed hair my hair dresser back combed back of hair and put under some clips so when I put my veil on it clipped on to the clips rather than my hair

Realistically if you dont want all the things you've said then there is only one option out there and that's a hairband. It can't be stuck or glued so it will have to be one of the above if you definitely want a veil.

Something like this? No clips or anything the veil just goes over the head xx

Have a 'halo' veil, the veil is placed over the head and face and secured in place by a circulate
