    Rakhi’s tikka is gorgeous! I wonder if they are real uncut diamonds.

    I like how the headpiece is worn higher than near the forehead line, something about this style is very chic and bohemian.

    I would like to know how a basic one would be worn? There is the one where there is a hook at the end, where would that attach to?

    Dear Stephanie,

    Maang Tikka is like a string, with a center piece on one end and a hook on the other. To put it first you should do a center parting of your hair. Then place the string of the maang tikka on the parting such that the center piece delicately touches the forehead. Then fasten the hook to the nearby hair strand and put a hair pin to hold it firmly. You can leave the maang tikka string visible or cover it with your hair as per your liking.
