A g`ajra is a flower garland which women in South Asia wear during traditional festivals. It is made usually of jasmine; in South India, crossandra and barleria are also widely used in gajras. It can be worn both on the bun and with the braid coiling. Women usually wear these when they wear sarees.
The gajra is an ornament that is purely meant to decorate a hairstyle and does not generally aid in holding a bun in place.
