Veil and pixie haircut

Did anyone with very short hair have a veil? I have a short haircut that is essentially an outgrown pixie cut. I would love a veil, attached to a headband/ headpiece but others are saying it wouldn't suit me. Was anyone else in the same boat? Do you have any photos? Thanks!

I would go and try one out. I didnt know I wanted a veil until they put one on at the shop and it looked amazing x

Sod everyone, you want a veil you have one! You won’t know what suits you until you’ve tried it so get your dress and then try them all. Enjoy! Xx

I'm having a veil and I have a very short pixie cut. It's personal choice and whatever you feel comfortable in. Who says you have to have long hair to get married hey? 😅 X

Go try some on. If you feel happy then wear it x

I have a pixie cut im having a birdcage veil on a headband as its the perfect compromise for me as i refuse to grow my hair my partner has never seen me with long hair so it wouldn't be me if i grew my hair out but i also dont want a long veil as its something that would annoy me its just not my thing so the birdcage idea is a great compromise google has great inspiration search pixie bridal hair

The key is the way you will be having your hair- id go and have a trial and then go veil shopping!

If you want a veil go for it it’s your day and if your not sure you can always try one before buying

I got married over 30 years ago I had short hair and a veil

A lot of brides wear their hair up. That’s no different to short hair! Go for it

I had short hair when I got married. I had a cathedral length veil. I did buy clip in hair extensions so that I could have a style and have my veil attached. It worked really well thanks to a super hairdresser. Xx

What’s the difference in having a veil with short hair and a veil with an up-do? All my hair is going up and I’m having a long veil. You do what you want! 😃

I think a long veil looks beautiful with short hair 😍😍

UKbride Member 17 Feb 2020

Don't listen to them. If you want a veil, wear one! Your hairdresser will make sure it's secure when you have your trial :)

Of course you can have a veil, short hair doesn’t mean you can’t, like every other hair type it just depends on which one! Maybe ask the consultants wherever you’re getting your wedding dress from if they have a few different styles to try on?
