Imagine Sonam Kapoor walking the red carpet wearing the best clothes and accessories, but without having done her hair just right! It would be considered a fashion disaster, and would spread like wildfire across all the Page 3s. When you are all dressed up in traditional wear, it goes without saying that you need just the right jewellery to get the final winning look. But what do you do with your hair? The look is never complete when we have a bad hair day. For example, if you purchased a grand Anarkali suit online, it would be a pity to get all dressed up and then tie your hair in the usual pony tail or leave it open, looking lank and listless.

The choices you have for just the right hair accessories with ethnic wear are aplenty. From mang tikkas to gajras, and from bejewelled hairpins to false buns in exotic styles, you can make your hairstyle as exciting as your outfit with just a little planning.

Here’s a look at some of the best options to go with your designer lehengas or your new Anarkali suit bought online.

2.      Pearl Strings: We all have our grandmother’s pearl string necklace, and with fashion classifying it a middle age accessory, what do we do with it? Try entwining it around a bun or a braid or simply hanging end to end over your open hair do. It will make your traditional saree or salwar suit look rather chic.

3.      Gajra: Most women shy away for this, wondering if it would sit well. In fact, it is the most popular accessory amongst South Indian brides. Cover the side swept braid with a long string of fresh flowers. You hair will smell great and it will instantly add a depth of purity to your outfit. You can also let the gajras fall open; covering your neck for a simple look that will compliment a well tailored silk salwar suit. You can even tuck a nice big Gerbera Daisy behind your ear to complete a retro ethnic look.

4.      Mang Tikka: This is the most widely used hair accessory. Each region of India has its own version; and it looks great with any ethnic outfit, even with Anrakali suit bought online. You can dress it up or down as much as you like.

5.      Borla: This is a traditional Rajasthani embellishment and in recent times has been worn with many ethnic outfits, to add a touch of diversity and charm. They come in many sizes and materials, studded with gem stones or enamel work, called meenakari.
The good news is that most Indian hair accessories are simply stunning and can transform your hairstyle instantly. And you don’t even need to visit a beauty parlour to get a great look.
