Maang Tikka for A Voluminous Hairdo

Your voluminous puffed hairdo will serve as an excellent canvas for showcasing the intricate beauty of a traditional maang tikka. Create a puffed hairstyle through backcombing or using hair padding to add volume at the crown. Carefully position our Aadhira Antique Maang Tika along the hairline, just above the puff. This maang tikka's shape will complement your hairstyle's volume and texture. Ensure that the tikka is securely fastened using hairpins or clips to prevent it from slipping.

A Curly Bun & Antique Maang Tikka

Curly hair tends to have more volume. Tame your curly hair in a bun for a clean and polished look. Consider the size and weight of the maang tikka. Choose a tikka that is lightweight and comfortable to wear for extended periods. This ensures the tikka stays securely in place without weighing down your curls. Our Narayani Antique Maang Tika has a sleek design, and its antique gold-toned finish will add warmth and radiance to your look.

Maang Tikka & A Simple Side-Swept Hairdo

Style our Chakrika Antique Maang Tika with a side-parted hair bun to create a timeless and sophisticated look. Begin by parting your hair on one side to create a sleek and polished appearance. Gather your hair into a bun and ensure it sits at the nape of your neck or slightly higher for a classic and regal effect. The trick here is to position the tikka along your central hairline carefully. Take your time to adjust the tikka as needed. Make sure that it is straight and symmetrical for a decent look.
