What are the different headpieces in south Asian culture and differences in them please?

:

The first is a Mathapatti it goes around the entire head , mostly worn by South Indian brides but many brides still wear them on their wedding day. image

This one is a jhumar/jhoomar it’s worn on the side and was worn by royalty back in the  Mughal era. This one’s usually worn by Punjabi or Muslim brides.

Then there is the tikka which is worn right in the middle. This one’s worn by every South Asian bride or guest.

Then there is the jhumar tikka which is a jhumar and tikka attached together.

Hope I helped :-)
