What it is: A cage veil is a short style that delicately covers and frames the face. Though it’s most often seen in a wide net, there are many tulle and embellished varieties available as well.
Best with: A hairstyle that’s the same length or shorter than the veil is ideal. Try the sophisticated look of a low updo or the softness of a curly down-do that just barely grazes the shoulders.
Hair how-to: Braid the top front section of your hair. This plait is the perfect place to conceal the comb of the veil -- just slip it in right behind the first twist. Secure the rest in a low, romantic bun.
