As Indian girls we’re all familiar with the gajra, we’ve seen it in movies, we’ve seen it on our elders and quite often we’ve even seen it being sold off at the traffic signals! Being overexposed to this traditional treasure, we often overlook it when dressing up for special occasions. For us, it is an old forgotten tradition, a common custom, a part of the old school ‘sola Shringar’. Or is it? Think again ladies, what is perhaps one of India’s most ancient hair accessories, has made a killer comeback! We’re sharing pictures of 9 brides that prove this floral accent is back like how…

#3 ‘The Chic Coils’
Love this casual chic coil styled over loose braids for the mehendi.
