Fly veil help?

So I bought my horse a fly veil, he's never worn one before and was completely fine with wearing it. It fit him alright, not too big not too small..he has a problem shaking his head a lot (we're not really sure why, still trying to figure it out). Anyway, he shook his and his bridle slipped over his ears and basically fell off...I know it's because of the fly veil, but I'd really REALLY like to keep it on him to get his forelock out of the way, but is there something I can do to make it not so...slippery I guess?

My suggestion would be to put the veil over the bridle. And as far as the head shaking it could be anything from photoic (sp) head shaking to dirt in the inner ear...
