Shingar Patti/Matha Patti: My top picks

Hello beauts,

So after my post on my real bride makeover it got me thinking about Shingar Patti's.

A Shingar Patti is an Indian bridal headpiece worn traditionally by brides and this year they were everywhere! From the covers of most Asian bridal magazines to real life brides adorning them, we just couldn't get enough. 
So with it looking like they will be even more popular next year, I've put together a little guide for all those brides to be on finding the perfect one.

In the past few years Asian bridal makeup & fashion has been taken to a whole new level, so its not surprising that Shingar Patti's have come back with a bang.
Personally i can understand why, for me the right Shingar Patti can bring the whole bridal look together.

The Shingar Patti's range form light to heavy styles and come in various different designs & matching sets to go with.
The key to finding the right one is to make sure it suits your face shape, as with anything you really need to try on a few different styles.

Here is a selection of a few stunning pieces I've picked out, all available from Kyle's collection of London.

This style is perfect for those brides who are going for a soft minimal look.
The size is just right if you have more larger features, as it will complement your face well.

This next one is a stunning piece its quite similar to the one my bride wore in my last post.
I would say this piece works well if you have a narrow face giving you more width and dimension.
Its also perfect if your going for the traditional look, adding just enough glamour.

So if you really want to stand out from the crowd on your big day, then this is the one for you.
Its a gorgeous piece that will give you an ultra glamorous look.
It can be worn with either an extravagant or minimal outfit. If you have a wider face then this one is perfect for you as it will elongate your face nicely.

Now its not only on the Asian bridal scene that headpieces are making their mark.
The gorgeous Kim Kardashian wore a beautiful diamond head piece on her wedding last year to Kris Humphries and sadly, although the wedding didn't last.................The headpiece trend did :)

There were a whole range of jewelled headpieces on Asos this summer, and are still available from various other retailers. Check out a few from this store LIBERTY IN LOVE who have a stunning collection of pieces.

So whether it be Hollywood or Bollywood, what are your thoughts on headpieces? Xx
