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.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you
want to annoy for the rest of your life.
