GLAMOROUS ACCESSORIES: Jewellery used as Hair Accessories

I've been looking at various hair accessories and jewellery which can be worn by brides for ideas for my sister, and also as ideas as something blingy that could possibly be incorporated as hijab accessories to make for blingy accessorising. I came across this picture by MUA Saima Akram which uses a pretty piece which drapes along the hair and across part of the forehead. I'm not sure everyone could pull this piece off though, and I think you'd have to have a larger face to be able to make sure this look proportionate. One alternative way of wearing this though, could be to wear it behind at the back of your hair (or scarf!) to make it feel less cluttered and pretty :)

Is this something you would wear?

  1. I think it looks good on the model, but as you said, I don't think it would be easy for a real person to pull off, I also think it's a bit over the top...I would have less "strands".

    I really like the shingar pattis that Kyles do, I wore one of those for my wedding...although that was nearly four years ago and I'd like to think they were less common then!

  2. Agreed! Matta pattis also weren't that common too, and looks pretty, although not everyone can pull that off either!

  3. It looks good on the model but even then its the angle the picture has been taken that makes it look good who knows where it end, I think it could look good on the back of a hijab if it is put properly with a plain hijab ?
