Hair accessory filter! I recently saw someone wearing a hair accessory that was basically a jeweled chain going along her part. What is this accessory called?

I tried hair part jewelry hair jewelry accessory, etc etc, and found nothing.

I think it may be a "tikka," which I've seen on Indian women. Try asking at a local Indian shop?

That would be my first guess too -- tikka pictures here for comparison.

It's a 'tika' ('tikka' is a, to the British anyway, chicken dish!)

Some affordable ones here, here and here.
