How to wear the Maang Tikka
Now that you know the variety of maang tikka designs, a common query that many people have is how to wear the maang tikka. There are several ways to wear the tikka, one way is to highlight only the pendant of the tikka and hide the chain. For this style you can either cover the chain with your hair by combing your hair backwards or sideways over the chain.
Some Maang tikkas have beautiful chains and are worth showing off. In that case just leave the parting of your hair well defined and then drape the tikka.
