The paasa or the side tikka is a classic mughal hair accessory. While in the past, this was restricted to Muslim brides, this has been appropriated by brides of all religion, in the true spirit of secularism. And why wouldn’t it be? Just like the elegance of Mughal architecture, the right paasa or jhoomar could leave you basking in regal glory. Paasas these days are embellished with diamantes, kundan, and crystals. You can even use a paasa with your traditional jewellery to create that fusion look.
