Sindoor is traditionally applied at the beginning or completely along the parting-line of a woman?s hair (also called maang) or as a dot on the forehead. Sindoor is the mark of a married woman in Hinduism. Single women wear the dot in different colors (“bindi” in Hindi) but do not apply sindoor in their maang. A version used in Hindu rituals or puja is known as Kumkum. This lends itself to the name of a wedding ritual in some Hindu communities, known as Haldi-Kumkum. The red sindoor is significant for the married woman as she is full of colour. Methods and styles of applying the sindoor vary from personal choice to regional customs. Many new brides will fill the whole hair line with sindoor, while other married women may just apply a red spot at the end of the hair line and forehead. Recently, a triangle shape on the forehead pointing towards the nose, added with a diamond bindi for fashion is being worn by younger women.
