pins? was Re: need help determining what kinda hat I need
- I have a question. Straight pins? like the ones you use to sew
with? That sounds potentially ouchy. Or are these pins more like
hat pins, longer and blunter?
thanks for all of the help!

and yellow plastic heads though.....). provided you don't jam them
straight into your skull, there's no reason to fear ouchiness :) When
attaching the veil to your hair, you're not going anywhere near your
skin, you'r just putting them through fabric, catching some hair from
your bun, and going back out to come through the veil again. At the back
of the neck it can be a little prickly, so make sure that your pins go
through the fabric two or three times - this also ensures that they'll
stay in place better.
I used to lose about 1-2 pins each time I wore this style, now I lose
none because I've figured out how to anchor them, by keeping the heads of
the pins either upright or closest to my skull.
