Bride’s veil — new coiffure

by Emily H May

We give here and engraving of a bride’s veil (front and back views) and below, two new styles for dressing the hair, both being back views. The bride’s veil is of tulle illusion placed under a wreath of orange blossoms, which forms a very low diadem; the hair is raised straight up from the roots with Russian bandeaux and tufts of frizzles placed in the middle of the coiffure. Medici’s collarette of white crepe. The back view shows the trailing branch of the orange blossoms under the veil, and arrangement that is both new and pretty.

We also give two engravings of the latest novelties in dressing the back hair. The style can be imitated easily with these cuts before you.
