BY The WMG Bride | 07 Apr, 2016 | 4093 views | 4 min read

If you thought hair accessories were limited to the boring Maang Tikka or Matha Patti, think again. From cute to regal, hair accessories have that ability to transform you completely and add a little oomph to the mix. Right from the bachelorette to the wedding, there are hair accessories for every event which not only enhance the hairdo, but also boost the bridal beauty! Traditional or modern? You take your pick!

Bachelorette Party

If you've always dreamed of wearing a tiara since you were a little girl, then your own Bachelorette is the perfect time to feel like a princess! A sparkling tiara or a fun one, the choice is yours... but yes, one with a single line of diamantes looks stunning even with the simplest of hairstyles!

Flower head bands and wreaths

These aren't just limited to the bridesmaids! Get a super special one with roses or bigger flowers to stand out!

Feather Drop Head Chains

The delicate bejewelled ones look so so amazing! You can also get the simple glitter ones or ones with a little more detailing to go with your outfit. Simple yet so effective!

These look best with gowns or modern lehengas. Accessories like metallic wreaths can add that angelic vibe to you which is so stunning!

Funky Hair clips

Remember the bird on Carrie's head during the wedding in the Sex and the City movie? Funky hair clips have made their way to India as well, perfect to be paired with a cocktail gown during the Engagement or Sangeet. These can be just clips that come in fun shapes - stars, flowers, all put on the hair in a formidable way. Pick a shape that's closest to your spirit animal.

Modern juda pins

Juda pins are no longer how you remember them. Perfect for Indian and fusion outfits, they can make any hairdo, especially buns way prettier! Elaborate and pretty, a lot of them come with hanging chains which look different and graceful.


Zardosi headbands

Looking for something cute yet traditional to wear at your Mehendi function? Then a Zardosi headband might be just what you're looking for! The best part? You get to leave your tresses open if you want to!

Head chains

Jewelled, beaded or just plain and simple, head chains look so chic! Add a maang-tikka in the centre or just keep it simple, the choice is all yours!

Layered Pins

They come with two hair combs that you can put on either side of your hair - they are refreshingly different and give a posh vibe!

Little clips, easy to wear. They just add character to your bridal personality!


New-age Maang-tikka

More or less a staple when it comes to Indian weddings, but these have also undergone a change over the years. Big, statement Maang-tikkas which dominate the face have become a rage on the ramp, and weddings as well!

Hair Combs

They are just clips with a comb in place - nothing different, just practical and fun. These days, you also get temple jewellery designs and pure gold ones also.

Poola Jhada

The south-indian hair braid where you have a long floral or gold design across the length of your hair - that's the theme and it will never fail you.

Temple Jewellery Vintage Clips

In Bharatnatyam dance, you see that the maatha patti will come with two little clips - surya and half-chandra, they are so popular even now.

Cute little Juda Pins

Gone are the days when Juda pins were drab and boring, check out these tiny ones which can make the boring wedding bun look so adorable! Get ones with kundan, little petals or ghungroos which look pretty and dressy at the same time! You can even tuck the dupatta into the bun using these pins!

Wear it full or only on half the side of the parting, but agree with us when we say that Matha-pattis look way more dressy than the Maang-tikka, especially for the bride!

Jhoomer or Passa

How beautiful did Deepika look in Bajirao? Once only associated with Muslim weddings, the Jhoomer or Paasa has now become a hot bridal accessory. Wear only a Jhoomer on the side or team it up with a Maang-tikka, it adds a regal old-world charm to any bride!
